    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    And why, are we not being made privy to these photos? Priorities.

    Well done. I generally stick to a Monday to Saturday routine now. Unless something comes up that I have to miss a day. Doing a simple PPL split twice weekly, so even if I miss a day, I'll still have done that working group once for the week. Generally just switch the main focus from first to second workout for the week (ie. Mon chest focus push, Thu shoulder/overhead focus push). So that no single muscle is too fatigued and to prevent overuse injury. Still hit all muscles in that days group.

    Don't forget to give time for your muscles to repair. Don't over do it and compromise your health. Although, awesome job and stick with the grind. Hard work pays off.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    All those wipes and hand squirt shit are just the lowest form of antibacterial. Barely useful. Nothing for viruses at all. So many people are using them thinking it's keeping them safe from COVID19, it's not. At all. Proper handwashing, keeping a safe distance from others. Don't touch your face, ever. These are things that'll work. Remember, if you can smell their fart move apart.

    Starting week 2 of all three kiddos at home. So far, spirits are good. Trying to figure out the whole work situation. Being a correctional officer I still need to go to work, and my wife works rehab at the hospital, so she still needs to work. Going to get tougher to figure out the longer this goes.

    Really hoping this shit doesn't hit my work. It'll suck. Huge.

    It's hard. I find when life gets busy, I drop the cardio. But I still am playing volleyball regularly, so that helps.

    4th vs 6th 6 15s

    Flat wall it now, tune low, big port, will get tons windy. Save the headache of doing multiple setups for no reason. As said above use a low pass crossover to set your upper limit on the bandpass you're using them for. And there are tons of methods of setting it up so that you can switch the port up later.

    4th vs 6th 6 15s

    But WHY do you want to do a 6th order bandpass? Or bandpass in the first place? What are the benefits you are gaining from that enclosure?

    Looking good. Love how that came together. Keep it going.

    Help with speakers.

    Need some more info, than just good speakers. Size requirement/limitations, power being applied, source being used, location, room size, on/off axis, etc... Are all factors to consider when choosing a set up. Are you looking for a simple 2 channel set up? 2.1? 5.1? 7.1? As well, what's the budget? Lots of speakers out there, that will get the job done for 90% of the population.

    Sorry to hear about the layoff. Sucks dude. Glad to hear you've got your priorities in the right place though. Best of luck with the job search. Hope you find something good.

    Nothing wrong with over building for the current plans. Having extra means less stress for now, and room for more down the road. Keep the work and pics coming

    Find it amazing, I made this post 7 years ago, I am still running this oz me 12 just using it in my garage in a sealed enclosure off of low power (old computer speaker amp). Gets used pretty much on the daily. Still awesome, still love it. Still my favorite sub I've ever owned. Still have the old alpine cda-7998 sitting on the top shelf above my work bench. Hasn't been hooked up in years. Was never able to part with it when it was still relevant. Now, with all the Bluetooth, factory integration, NAV etc it's just a relic of a past era.
