    Several attempts at arranged marriages have been mediocre at best, but this one is worth immortalizing with a name badge.

    Up top is a Hartke HA5000 with that lovely pair of blendable preamps and enough horsepower to relocate small to medium buildings.

    The substructure is a Carvin Cyclops--115,208 plus the red tweeter. Moves so much air you need an HVAC license to open it up.

    Choices: Harvin, CarHart (shown) plus maybe Cartke or kevin?

    What's wrong with "Kevin"?
     
  7. Nothing, but Harvin is funnier. Makes me laugh.

    Harvin!!!!!

    I really enjoy your descriptions of those two products, kind of makes me want to go deep into beer budget rigs.

    Ah, maybe just deep into beer. It is a Friday in Madison.

    How about calling it the Harvin Barkmaster Jr.? An homage to Carvin and Hartke and Jackie "The Jokeman" Martling's Jokemaster Jr.?

    Wow. This poster in particular is just down right scary. I see you haven't re-filled that OCD prescription yet.

    I see the direction we're heading but consider how it might look as a CarHart with a brown duck cover.

    It's a little hard to see in this image, but there is already a HYBRID nameplate in the lower right corner under the grille.
