    Yea, you could link to a picture that can actually be seen.
    Tripod doesn't allow external non-cookied links to images on it's websites.
    I did go to the site though and that's a pretty interesting setup he's got there.

    You might need to say more - 'Image hosted by Tripod'
    I checked the link. Damn funny. Poor guy doesn't have a 20lb center channel on top of his TV tho.

    You gotta admit, that's a nice looking pole in front of the television though.

    Kristen. Right click on the Tripod picture and click properties. There you can copy the link. That is unless the confused smiley was in regards to the pic.

    That is crazy! Maybe they plan to upgrade the TV soon.

    It looks like the 2 CH. stereo is sufficient though, provided they have enough amps.

    I'm sorry, but the guy has Nausicaa posters. Some of his priorities are obviously OK [​IMG]

    I wonder if he watches his movies in OAR? Of course his teeth are probably rattling so hard that he can't make out the picture in the first place! [​IMG]

    This site has probably not been updated since Tripod went online all those years ago. Case in point:

    Yeah, that monitor isn't for movie or TV-viewing, and the page is OLD. Pretty cool system I gotta say!

    If you read the text as well as looking at the pictures, it's made blatantly clear that the system is designed purely for music playback, it's not a home theatre system.

    The picture's still funny though!

    Wasn't it National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation the movie where he had about 50000 christmas lights on his house and when he plugged in the lights to the outlet, it brought down power grids all over the city? And here I thought I was a bass freak.

    The text also says the system hasn't changed since 1984. What were 18" drivers capable of in 1984. From my DIY sub reading I was under the impression that sub of that era were not all that capable. That it would take several of those 18" drivers to equal one of todays better 15" drivers. So even though it looks increadibly impressive I would think that a single BluePrint 1803 could give all those drivers combined a run for their money in bass output. The other thing I noticed, isn't his tweeter placment a little high?
