IT IS INSIDE
You have no fucking idea how hard it was to get this thing down here. Well actually, Jim probably knows exactly how. Actually, I don't even know how Jim got his down his steps. You had to have taken that Simpson apart, right?
So I had my Dad and brother in law come over to help out. We decided it would be best to take the monitor out of the unit in order to make this thing lighter. The monitor would have been cake to get out, but I forgot about the back panel. It was a three person job when we did it. Two of us holding the monitor and the third unplugging it. I didn't even think that all you have to do is remove the back panel to disconnect the monitor. Anyway, the monitor is heavy as fucking shit. Like unreal heavy. It really lightened the load big time. I also kept the front panel door removed since that probably weighs about 5 pounds itself.
We tried to put it through my back door but that didn't work. We were short about an inch. We even removed the control panel to see if we could wedge it in and we had no luck. So I had to wheel it around to the front of my house and we dragged it up the steps. It fit through the front door easily. We didn't even have to remove the control panel. I was actually semi embarrassed with people driving be and we're pulling this ridiculous machine into the house.
Once we got it through there it was easy. The unit has wheels on it so wheeling it across the hardwood floor was cake. Getting it down the steps was a bit tricky too. I wasn't sure where to put the Blast once we got it down here. I wanted to put it where the PC tower is now. Eventually I'd like to get it hooked up to this PC, so it would be easier if it were closer to the tower. I think I'm throwing that idea out the window though. I'll just go fully Xbox with it. Once it was moved I had to rearrange my whole PC area. Took me a while to go through all the cables and shit. I hate having to do that.
So the Blast is a bit of an eye sore down here now that it's here. Hahah, I thought it would fit in a bit better. These are smaller cabs... I can't imagine what a traditional wood would look like down here. I wouldn't have a basement left. Anyway, I'm super stoked to get this thing running. Watching it blow up on me in like 2 months.
