I almost always go directly to the amp threads. Nothing else interests me much. But, as most of us know, these threads sometime become a battleground of, mostly fact based, opinions. Some poor soul will ask a question about this or that speaker/amp configuration, and the battle rages. Chef has personally put down 2 of these debates recently. Many times the OP has a question that relates to mixed speaker sizes, and/or amp questions. Many times the replies seem to assume that the OP has unlimited funds to build what the responder feels is the the perfect rig. Hogwash. While there are many responders who seem to have a heart for the beginner, or one who is strapped for cash, many seem to believe that everyone should not only share their opinion, but be willing to get a second mortgage to finance what they believe to be the perfect rig. Maybe I should get a facebook account. Nope. That would be worse. Guys. Could we have a heart, and remember that sometimes these redundant questions are from kids, or someone new to TB? And in many cases, these posters don't have the money for what some of us have.
