My main hobby used to be softball. I played on a sponsored traveling team. Use to play about every weekend from March to September. Then life happened. With four kids now, my hobby is what ever they are doing, which I really enjoy. Now my softball playing days are regulated to one night week.

That looks nice, I know it's fun, did that about 30 year ago.

I have a good friend who mixes for bands with in-house systems, he also has all the speakers and equipment if they want to also use his equipment, he has a huge collection.

Audio is my oldest hobby's, we have a group of about 20 people who are good friends with a engineer from one of the major speaker companies. We get together in his lab and test and redesign pro speakers for home use with unbelievable sound.
This is the best sounding setup I have ever had, by far, also the most efficient at 108 Db with 1 watt at 3". The more efficient the less distortion, it's fully horn loaded including the sub which you can't see in this pic. The 3 little speakers are the front for Ht, 2 Ch is the bigger speakers.

I know what you mean, did the same thing years ago for a company team, Commonwealth Insurance. We even went to the championships once in Louisville KY but got beat out in the finals.

Then I got old and can't really run like that anymore, it would probably kill me now, but it was fun.

Great hobbies everyone.

I work out of town so my hobby is my family. Wife, 3 kids, and I'm not getting into the farm stuff. I would have to say it is a free for all when I get home. My hobby is can I aggravate and embarrass the kids and wife before they do it to me. Then I go break, build, put back together if we are lucky, bbq, and drink beer.

This is my 61 Chevy Apache pickup that has been a project of mine for the last year. It was my daily driver up until 2 weeks ago when the tranny let go.. Now its parked waiting for me to get it rebuild.

Before I focused my business on automation I installed tonnes of audio. I still have my 2 Linn 280 with Spark external power supplies.

I did a few JBL Synthesis HT systems and I can appreciate the pro sound in a home environment. But I find that most horn loaded speakers are a little too aggressive and directional for a stereo setup.

Your right, that's what I liked about these, there not directional at all, probably because of there size. Of all the speakers I have ever had these disappear, you can only tell the sound is from the front of the room. You can walk up to the Tv and until you get within a foot away you think that smaller center channel is on. It's just a very wide and open sound stage.

We had just got done with the testing in the anechoic chamber to get the numbers for the electronic crossover and was about to listen for the first time when my wife and daughter came in and sat down. It played for about 1 minute and they both looked at me and said " that's what we want", I was shocked considering there size but it's what we did. Very Happy

I wish you could hear them, the engineer that designed that horn is very talented, he has been doing this all his life and has many patents and is as nice as could be.

Not my hobby ... I'm too cheap.

I went to the New England Jet Rally 2011 last Sunday. Really neat!

Here's an article:

http://telegram.com/article/20110821...108219901/1246.

Check out the slide show in the article for pictures in flight.

A-10 with the wings off.



The detail was great.



Internals.



I like this one. I really like 100 series jets.



The F-4 even had a drag chute.



Landing gear.



A cooked $2,000 engine. hard to read, but one line is "Engine MAX Speed: 152,000 RPM." Surprised



Couple of others.





Some fit in an SUV.



Some are really big.



Here's a youtube video of a B-52.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbITzCI2AU0

Here's the crash.

8 engines at $1,500 each. I'm way too cheap to ever have this as a hobby.

Let's see Rolling Eyes In the the late eighties & early nineties it was flying. then in the 90's it was golf, cola, gambling & women. Then I straightened up and started fishing in the national Walleye comp circuit (n was part of the world record catch in 02). In 03 met and married the best thing God has ever put in this world. Now we live life to the fullest Wink and do Bbq comps!!
