My first one lasted about 12 years. The only issue with them is that the inverter technology weakens and/or kills the wifi signal.

I love the functionality of the Panasonic Inverter microwaves but it most definitely will not last that long. Typical lifespan is about 2-3 years before the inverter breaks which is a pricey part (and what makes these models unique.)

I've gone through 2 already.

So far I have noticed a difference from the old one, it does a better job at heating evenly. I'd be okay with 12 years if it makes it (hopefully).

At least it'll be harder to damage.

Maybe eat something other than Salisbury steak every now and then?

I'm due for pads myself. How do you like the Hawks so far on the street? The car is a G37 with the Akebono (Brembo style) calipers.

I ordered a Taramps Bass 400 to power a single 10" sub in my Tahoe. It's amazing how small amps are getting. This little guy puts out an honest 400 watts RMS at 2 ohms.

I just installed them Sunday so I only have like 20 miles on them

But I do have the same pad model on my 4Runner as well. They are quiet and they dust less than OEM. They've been on the 4Runner for almost a year now.

I wouldn't track them, but they do work on the street for me.

I've been out of the game a few years, is that the new branding for what was their HPS pads? Because I absolutely hated those things.

I think they're calling them HPS 5.0? Something like that. I just put a full set on our Accord. Why the hate? I've been running those for a decade on various vehicles.

They had absolutely no bite whatsoever and didn't give good feedback. Apparently, they're a (slightly) different product.

I never had the original HPS pads so I can't compare. Also most of my miles on them are in a 4Runner which isn't exactly because racecar territory.

That said, they do have better initial bite and overall braking power than the OEM Toyota ones. And they don't dust half as much as OEM. So far they have also been silent.

If they do that on the STI as well I'll be happy. No autocross or track days for me, so I don't expect or need track performance.

Ah. For a DD I think they're a nice upgrade over a standard pad. I certainly wouldn't track them.

Because they are efficient . . . and most everything is built into one chip . . .

Man, and I thought the amp I bought was small!
https://www.crutchfield.com/S-axrsE9...l-d-XM-1S.html

Then again, that was many years ago. But it definitely runs much cooler than the other amp I've got. Pretty impressive.

I have/ran the Hawk HPS on my RX-7 and Subaru STi.

They had great bite, and had very little dust. Were very quiet.

I did 'bed' the pads in FWIW.

At what point are you supposed to isolate the speakers and the turntable so the vibrations from the speakers donít transfer to the turntable?

My uncle is an electrical engineer/audiophile and a bit of a mad scientist. He did this just because.
