ifray, thank you so much. They are great amps. Contrary to what you might think, the bass is incredible. It has tremendous pace and drive and a fullness my 1.25KW's don't possess. It's not that the SS bass is deficient. It's not. But the 3500's have a different bass that I like significantly better. The resolution is superb.

Antonmb, thanks for the tip. I will try to accomplish this.

Rink is 20' x 15'. Plenty of room for experienced skaters. None but experience skaters allowed.











Snyder Super Deluxe plate. I have vanothane vintage wheels coming soon. Riedell professional boot. My alternate pair of skates. Notice the skating harness.



It's called the "Coffin"



As you can see, I have accomplished a significant room upgrade with the installation of my small skating rink. XVX provides excellent dancing music. It will blast you from the room. What could be better? it's all good when you're on the wood!
