    They are talking snow Monday night/Tuesday morning. Right about the time I will have to push the scoot outside to make room to work on the KJ:thumbsdown:

    We've got the snow really heavy right now. Due to the fact that the temperature is right at the freezing mark the roads are much more slippery than during some of our major storms when it was 15F out.

    No problem getting home from the gym, but boy - I do not trust those folks with lesser vehicles driving anywhere near me. :mexsmoke:

    Pouring here. Has all day. We had to drive about an hour to a funeral....what a miserable day to be out.

    It is, however, still 56°.

    Saw a fire truck pass me by at a very rapid speed.
    It went down my street.
    Stopped right next to my house.































    There's a minivan within just a few feet from my house very much on fire.
    Sigh... glad it didn't spread anywhere and most importantly, glad I wasn't at home.

    Oh and the Jeep is dead. Not sure what the heck happened. Mighty funny I paid $230 for this battery just for it to fail in just 14 months...

    I have not been on the forum for a wile or have not done anything to the jeeps just been doing sound engineering for some concerts at my church.

    My setup is the full Behringer X32 at FOH and if there are any other sound techs on the forum that say that behringer stuff is total crap, look at it this way it is a Midas mixer with Klark Teknik processing and the Behringer name on it

    amps are 2 Crown XTI 2 4002's for subs and Mids
    2 Crown XLS 1000's for highs and 2 monitors
    1 Mackie 808S for 2 monitors

    crossover is a DBX Driverack PA2


    speakers are subs B-52 LX-18EV3
    mids are a set of dual house brand 15's
    highs EV ZLX-12's

    monitors are 4 JBL MRX500's
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    the computer on top of the amp case is winXP pro for band manager 2.0 to control the XTI 2 amps

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the computer on the right is running the Driverack PA2 software over wifi from an second gen apple airport extreme

    My Jr. sound Tech Zoey

    the setup for the next day was for a dinner at the church Sunday night.

    At some point the the mids will be replaced with something I just don't know what yet.
    Also will be adding at some point a set of small center fills for in front of the stage at full range, because if you are at front and center the mids and high's are a bit muffled, was thinking a set of 10's running the M/C bus on the X23.

    This past Thursday we hosted a concert for the Band "The Afters" and Kyle Sherman

    this was my this was the stage setup

    Mmmmm perrrrrrty lights

    The police and a tow truck are here to get rid of the charred (ok, dead and burned) minivan.

    Okay I think I know why the Jeep is dead.

    I slept on my keys the other night... I must have continuously hit the remote start button. Why do I think so?

    The fuel gauge is reporting a MUCH lower reading than it was when I parked it and I also noticed that my garage was a bit "warm" the same morning when I went to work.

    I wonder how many times I hit it?

    So right now I'm just gonna go fill up a gas can and hope that I make it to a gas station...

    If it was running the battery shouldn't be dead, right? What other buttons were you sleeping on?

    Possibly all of them. The flipper glass was open too, *and* the Dart was unlocked!!!!

    Now THAT truly would have sucked because if I hadn't parked it exactly where I did, when the garage door opened, it would have destroyed it.

    1.6" rain so far today (still pouring) and 1.5" yesterday. On already-saturated ground.

    We're drowning...and I'm tired of hearing my sump pump.

    I'd take a good soaking rain right now just to wash away the last few months worth of accumulated crud. My guess is we'll get it next Friday when the Indians have their home opener... :(

    It's still raining....4.24" on the month, most of which has come in the last 36 hrs.

    I've had enough now. Everything's mud and flood.

    So I stopped at the local police station on the way home and called the state police. There are no regulations in this state regarding engine swaps. I can put any engine I want in my jeep. The state police even told me I should put a more powerful engine in it. So I'm toying around with the idea of a V8 swap now.

    Guys and girls,
    I found a way to get extreme gas mileage from my Liberty!
    I walk.
    But the entire time I'm going "Vrrooom vrroom beep beep".
    People look at me funny, but the gas mileage is great.
    I've even been able to get up some really steep hills without a lift kit.
    Haven't filled up all year.
