Another two weeks has gone by. I’ve spent both weekends with the kids at my place although we did not do anything special this time. Jonathan and I continued our semi-binge watching of 007 and watched through another two movies each weekend. Actually, as I am writing this on a sunny (for once) Sunday morning we still have one movie to watch this weekend. Cassandra has submerged herself in one of the Christmas present games, Monster Hunter World. She actually went out of bed around 4:30 this morning to start to play!
Next weekend is the start of the school Winter holidays so the kids will be at my place some more during the week after that. The plan is for two of them (Jonathan do not start his holiday until a week later) to come next Sunday and stay a few days beginning of the week. Then all of them will come for some days the week after. I will plan some time off from work that week.
As we did not do anything particular these two weekend, which the kids are generally quite happy with since it gives them more game and movie time, I haven’t take any photos so the featured image of this post is a photo of my new sub-woofer. I had ordered it quite a while ago and it got delivered just before last weekend. It was the last weak link in my home cinema setup.
Of old my old stuff my old sub-woofer was probably the one thing I was actually quite unhappy with. It was musically quite correct but as soon as it was forced to go down below 35 Hz, which would be quite often given the kind of movies that I watch, it started to rumble and distort the sound. This one is a quite affordable mid-range model which, with a 800W RMS Sledge amplifier and a 12 inch driver, packs quite a punch and delivers down to 16 Hz without breaking a sweat. I guess some might consider it butt ugly in the living room of course but hey, not me, I am a home cinema geek after all.
My only problem now is that I have to be careful not to give the neighbors “the shakes”.
