So what was it the volume was turned down or some thing? We all like a good one Gary!
Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!

What am I a fuckin' detective?

Explain (in detail) that picture & what I'm supposed to know by looking at it.

Don't make me come out there.

Gee gary, I didn't realize it was a video.

I apologize .

Now that I've watched the video its all soooo clear.

Oh wait, it doesn't explain anything....does it.

Looks like you've been working on it though.

I'm glad its all back.

What did happen? You know just in case mine takes a shit I'll know what to do.

Things were so tight back there with the huge spades on my new speaker cables that I had the pos/neg touching.

Like Martin said, you CAN'T break a 400x7~

Sounds fantastic with Doug's Furez 9AWG cables! I would have never thought Sonic Holography could be improved with speaker cables, but they sure do some magic!
