"Set Phase to Stupid!"
« on: May 27, 2009, 10:47:04 AM »
Went yard sailing this past weekend. Pretty fun, scored some really awesome deals.

Deal #1:

Some kid was selling his Playstation 2 Slim because he said it didn't work any more. I being electronically inclined figured, "2 bucks? maybe i can fix it, why not?"

I brought it home, put one of my own games in it, works flawlessly, apparently the game the kid was trying to play was all scratched to hell. Score for me!

Deal #2:

Now here's the kicker. Stopped off at a bible-thumper's garage sale, they had some random musical stuff for sale, then in the corner of my eye, with a piece of linen draped over it, being used as a table was a David Eden 2X10XLT, old style. This must have been one of the first to come out, and its seen its day, needed a good cleaning and everything.

I ask the garage sale organizer, "What's the deal with this cabinet?" "well", they replied, "my husband was going to throw it away because he thinks both speakers are blow, it sounds really thin and he doesn't like it. Yours for $25 if you want it?"

SOLD!

So i brought it home only to find out that this woman's husband, in his infinite wisdom, wired the speakers out of phase!!! I corrected the wiring issue and BOOM! Perfect solid bass!!!!

So I got a playstation 2 slim for $2
and an Eden 2x10XLT for $25

I love garage sales.

Now I'm not complaining, but keep in mind i had to scrub the crap out of this thing. Cosmetically its pretty sad, It certainly looks ok now, but i had rust on the grill, dust everywhere, and the carpet, well i won't talk about the carpet, but its clean now.

It performs flawlessly. The functions of the cab are all still there. The only thing i wish i could improve on this amp is it has a mild funky smell if you go near the bottom ports.

But hey, $25, can't complain. I'll just hang one of those tree air fresheners off it. [:D]
