  1. OT: PC speakers wattage

    Andrew, Take a look at the rear panel of the subwoofer at the manufacturers page:https://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/surround-sound-speaker-z506. Typically, when you plug any speaker system into a AC outlet, that speaker is a "powered" system. It uses a built in amplifier (typically measured by watts) to amplify the line inputs provided by either via the mini plug, or the dual RCA plugs. Then the signal goes out thru to the speakers via the separate speaker outputs. So, to answer your original question: typically yes, a 75 watt powered speaker system would be "louder" than a 50 watt powered speaker system. There are nuance differences, like the aforementioned speaker sensitivity, but for the most part, most PC speaker systems like the one you noted will follow this "rule".
  2. Just received an email that the HobbyWorks location in BelAir MD will be closing in mid march. The Laurel MD and Rockville MD stores are still open for business.
  3. Jeffrey, thanks for taking the time to post these pics. Cannot wait for mine to arrive from luckymodel!

  8. Modern Viper Guide 2nd Edition

    Jake, Will there be any space devoted to the F-2A/B? I know it isn't a *REAL* f-16, but, it does seem to have the agile falcon as it's proud papa!

  11. best online vendor for AK interactive extreme metal

    Wow, What an adventure I had with this purchase. But all worked out in the end. A few days after ordering from AK directly, I receive a phone call from Fedex, noting that the accompanying paperwork (TSCA) was illegible. they asked if I could certify the shipment. I then emailed AK asking for their help. Fedex noted I "only" needed to authorize AK as the certifier for the TSCA form. All seemed to be well. That is, until the package arrived. AK's packaging seemed to come up short, with one of the extreme metal bottles breaking making a mess of the entire shipment. I then send pictures to AK who, promptly, apologize, and ship out a complete replacement order! GREAT customer service. Will definitely order from them again. I am still shaking my head about the "middlemen" involved here in the states nearly doubling the price of the product.
  12. tool box recommendations

    Thanks all for thinking / adding your opinions! I did eventually find that 16" toolbox (with the 12" tray) at walmart. It works perfectly for medium -large size superglue tubes.
  13. New Airbrush Question

    I agree with Vern and 86sabreboy. The eclipse is easy to clean with that compression fit nozzle. Also, don't forget, that you can get replacement parts for it to take it "up" inexpensively to .50mm if the .35mm doesn't work exactly the way you like.
  14. Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas to all of my friends here at ARC!
