    A QUIET CRASH?

    Sabian FRX. What they do well is open up and give you the full character of the crash at a lesser volume level. You don't need to bash them to get a crash.

    OT: Your Favorite War Movies

    Read the Exorcist many moons ago,then saw the movie. Missing a few sub plots here and there as opposed to the movie. The setup for verisimilitude was also a lot more detailed in the book.
