Yeah - it is. They're supposed to be alright boxes... copies of the Crowns.

On the topic of backspins... tried doing one on Friday night and got owned by the wind. Who thought that decks (well, the platter) became so heavy in the wind?!

And reading that reminded me about picking up a dodgy receiver on the street when I was 16 and blowing a pair of woofers and crossovers as the amp threw a barrage of DC through the poor things. That relentless thump was fairly chilling.

I wasn't too impressed that I'd fucked my speakers, particularly as I already had a (working) receiver to use.
