I bought a used 2015 Ford Fusion Titanium earlier this summer and didn't realize one of my rear subs was blown until after purchase. The Sony replacement through my Ford dealer was $80 for ONE, which seemed a little high. I scoured the internet for hours trying to find an affordable/better replacement, which is harder than you think since the original Sony speakers (BG1T-18971-CA) are 2.3 ohms (30w). Evidently, 2ohm subwoofers are a rarity. I called a couple audio shops in town and they had never even heard of them! I also did not want to replace true subs with a 3 way speaker.
Finally after hitting several forums, I found CDT Audio (http://www.cdtaudio.com) having the 6x9 2 ohm subwoofers I needed! I emailed and called to make sure I was getting the right stuff, and ordered a pair of official refurbished CL-69Sub/CF for $100 (and cheap shipping!)
I was at Costco this weekend and was looking over the box for the Shark Navigator Swivel UV410. On the bottom of the box is the following warning:
It reads: WARNING: This product contains chemicals, including lead, known to the State of California to cause cancer, and birth defects and other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
Scary AND inconvenient

On our last weekend on Long Island, we opted to skip going to the hustle-bustle of Manhattan and instead head East, past the Hamptons, to the very end of Long Island. On our way to Camp Hero State Park we had to stop off at the original Lobster Roll for, what else, lobster rolls! We grabbed them to go and kept heading east.
A tip for all visitors: they aren't kidding about the ticks! Be sure your pet is up to date on their repellent, and I recommend human repellent too! I found several small ticks on my nether-regions, and a few chiggers made nice work of my legs too.
We parked just south of the main entrance and ate our lunch along the bluffs near Battery 216, which was a small battery, nothing notable, though the view of the Montauk Lighthouse is impressive.
We then explored the trail near Battery 113 and climbed a steep trail to get onto the roof of the battery. There are some great photo opportunities on top of and under…
