    And I'm pretty sure dogs are loving it. Everyone is out walking their dogs lately just as an excuse to get out of the house.

    From what I remember, the tweeters are wired in series with the lower 6x9's (or 6.5", can't fully recall). If you want to bypass the tweeters and remove them completely, you need to connect the same colored wires together that feed into/out of the tweeters to still power the new components in the door. I am guessing you are not installing an external amplifier and using the head unit to power the whole system? If you are using an amp, you can run new speaker wire from the component speakers in the door to the amp and ignore all the factory wiring.

    Not sure what they were thinking by having the tweeters be the first component in the series connection instead of running them in parallel, but pretty easy to get around by bypassing them.

    I wouldnt.
    You will change impedance.
    Unless the replacements were intended as stock replcemebts without the component tweeter....
    Unless stuff has changed?

    Motorcycle is officially out for the season! Going to have to do something with the carb though, having trouble in the higher revs. I think it’s a fuel issue, runs perfect up to about 6k rpms, then starts to sputter a bit. It’ll keep revving, just sputters a bit under hard, high rpm acceleration. But, great to be out on 2 wheels comfortably in March!

    Just bought some shares of Vanguard's Total Stock Market ETF. Figured it's low now, so it'll be interesting to see how it does in the coming months.

    I've gotten old over the winter. I just locked up my back somehow. I had a super productive day, and all of a sudden I slowed down and I'm like, and I cannot sit up straight.

    Today's accomplishments:
    - Two trees chopped up
    - Driver side Corvette carpet cleaned
    - Driver side Corvette recovered seat in
    - New driver and passenger side Corvette sun visors in
    - Pro Grille back in
    - Pro Fogs back in
    - BFGs up from the cellar into the garage

    Not as productive as I had been before two kids, but decent. The wife and I were taking turns watching the kids, so it's at least progress. Tomorrow's supposed to be crappy, so maybe I throw my BFGs on. The Vette's ready to drive out of the garage and then I can throw the passenger side in, swap off the storage tires and be good. Exciting times ahead.

    Damn, all I did was cut up tree limbs in the side yard..though I'm old, so I guess that counts for something

    I cleaned up and burned all the sticks and branches that fell in my yard this winter. We have this weird tree in our backyard that looks cool when it's bloomed, but after it drops these massive green bean looking things everywhere. Pain in the ass to clean up, but they burn like a christmas tree.

    Then i did some fitness in the garage. Basically the same thing I would have done in a normal world.

    I had so much more I wanted to do, but I was trading off the kids. She did a ton of other yard work. I'm determined to get ahead of the yard this season. I'm just eagerly awaiting the virus BS to blow over so I don't feel guilty going shopping for fertilizer, top soil and the like. Assuming my job stays around I'll be having a fence put in and I'll be buying a swingset for the kiddos.

    there’s a whole thread for investing. It’s a hoot.

    I unfortunately have set the line in the sand, until my truck is paid off I’m not playing with stocks. 401k and IRA that’s it.

    I only did $1000. Figured that's just enough to be worth bothering with, but not so much that I'll miss it. I'll just let it sit and see what happens. I don't have a 401k (state pension instead), but my Roth IRA isn't looking great right now--good thing I don't need it for at least 31 years.

    I have a little over a year more of payments on this truck if I keep at it the way I have been.

    coming from RI, there’s a lot of places that are good businesses and employ wonderful people but are owned by scum bags and I don’t want to give them business.


    yeah I’m a long way from retirement, hopefully about two years from truck payoff. Although I am currently looking at how to make early retirement happen.
