        I finally gave up on using it in the summer, as it regularly is over 100 F. Had to get a solid state for summer. Ridiculous I know.

        It says the speakers are supposed to last a lifetime, and the surrounds and plastic grills did not. I don't have the original woofers to prove they failed, but I do have the grills. If they give me anything, ill be happy. I am also missing the wood diffuser panels that go over the woofers, but those will be hard to find.

        I mean, is any car head unit amazing with sound quality? Right not im using a pioneer single din unit I got for $100, much better than factory, but the Bluetooth stopped working, and it has some issues with randomly skipping songs off my usb stick. android auto would be so nice, and I have space for double din.

        There was no assigned reading at all. It was just a terrible teacher. He was bad at teaching what we did go over, and then didn't even cover everything. I just stopped paying attention because it was easier to learn on my own.

        As to your last comment: that's exactly what college is supposed to teach you…to learn how to learn on your own. It's essentially "you have all the background you need, now go learn it for yourself".

        However, I wouldn't expect such an abrupt cut-off toward that direction for freshmen. Certainly by junior year though.

        Not defending this teacher, but in a way he's hurrying you along to where you need to get to.

        Could be a good decision, I have bottomed out this car multiple times, I am used to SUV's. Though it doenst seem worth it to invest to much when I only have 148 HP.

        For lawns, Impreza must be placed upon cinderblocks for the optimal display of vintage automobiles. Cinderblock cars awaiting repairs on your lawn show potential mates that you’re a handyman most excellent with cash money.

        When you wind up a mechanical watch and you witness it coming alive again you might understand. Some watches jump back into action and you want to wear them again. My Vostok is like that...

        I like them, and I got them for $50 on craigslist. I have not heard the LSR305/308, so I can not compare, but the front mounted volume control, digital inputs, remote control capability, and link between them so I only need to change volume on one makes them much more convienient.

        My main problem was it was too long, for an action movie. I recently watched Laurence of Arabia, and that was 3 hours 40 mins long, but that wasn't too long, because important things and character evolution were happening. But for a marvel movie, 3 hours is too long. Felt like first 2/3 were just to set up last 1/3
