Annoying sounds from cars at stop light

high frequency intermittent noise
Hey, that's impressive use of perspective. Plenty of members on here are so OCD, they'd be miserable and only able to hear the noise.I was that way with transformer hum, until I decided not to care 
Singers do not sing the language they speak
Definitely not racist to make an observation like that. But does that count as singing in a different language if it's the language they use?

Man, that sucks. Time to move! 
Use pink noise disc to warm up stereo
Hmmm. Odd. I find just being turned on for a bit does the job. Which is odd, as I have a similar setup to rvp: dared tube pre and Ghent Audio class D monoblocksDo not keep tube amps on all the time. That's a fire waiting to happen. 
How best to shoe horn speakers into a room
I do believe the Wilson's allow you to aim the mid and tweeter towards the listening position, no? That would negate the need to have them at ear level

@oddiofyl┬á(great name, btw) that chart is a great share, thanks! It's interesting reading about the extremely high decibel levels. Crazy stuff!

Room set up
REW is great for room measurements, but won't tell you how to move your speakers. It'll just give you data to work with, but you'll still have to use your ears and mind.I find REW very helpful, but it's good to be realistic about its capabilities. 
Which audio component would you like Santa to place under the christmas tree for you?
I'd like the fat, mystical elf to provide me with a big box of high quality DIY parts. KLEI signal connectors, furutech power connectors, high quality caps (all values that I would need, of course), a variety of high purity wire in different gauge...

Sure, but judgement on character goes beyond criticizing the comment.. 
shrink wrap film residue- how to remove
Plain old olive oil on a soft cloth might be a solution. I use it to remove adhesive when I'm out of Goo Gone..┬áBoth Goo Gone and vegetable oil are very gentle to most surfaces and you'd probably be fine, but like everyone says, test it somewhere ... 
My JL Audio sub is dead. What exactly happened?
Thanks for reporting back. It's a shame when there are no answers in these threads, just questions.┬áDid you get to replace the cap yet?
