Default Next AES meetings.

We begin the year with a couple of historical visits.

The first on Tuesday 18th March 2014 7.30 pm

SA Power Museum 31-33 Broughton Avenue, Kurralta Park.

Not surprisingly much of the heavy engineering comes from the assets of ETSA, Adelaide Electric Supply Company and unloved big machines otherwise destined for the scrap heap if bean counters had been allowed to have there way. An admittance charge of $5.00 applies to generate funds in support of the volunters that work there. There is the possibility we could see a 1,000.000 volt arc from the Tesla Coil

There is quite a collection of appliances, from an era when safety was not obessed over as it is today.

History 2 is the Aviation Museum at Port Adelaide, also involving an admission charge.

Not certain if I will be there as I am currently crook, also known as being ill in places outside Oz

Anyone else in Adelaide interested in building a schroeder tonearm? I was thinking we could look at buying parts together.

Default August AES meeting in Adelaide

Hi all.
We are going to play a video of Douglas Self discussing active crossover design. It is of a presentation he made at the 2011 Burning Amp Festival in San Francisco.

Of course you could play it yourself, but you may value the synergistic experience of the presence of like minded people. Besides, we could pause the video to elaborate on points made, or to answer questions.

Rod Elliott, on his ESP Web site has an interesting article on the advantages of active crossovers. The bit that I found interesting was that with passive XO's you lose damping control of the drivers near the band edges due to having a parallel resonant circuit in series with the drivers.

7.30 pm, Tuesday, August 19th, 2014
Upstairs room, Directors Hotel
247 Gouger Street

As usual the committee will be having a counter tea downstairs from 6pm. Others are welcome to join us.

Keith

Hi All, Last meeting certainly had a few glitches. The Directors Hotel had gone into receivership unbeknown to us.

Our Chairman, David Murphy, is going to give a presentation called a "High power horn loaded subwoofer". Krix Loudspeakers had a one off special job in Sydney supplying speakers for a club. The horn mouth of the subwoofer is under a stage and there is manifolding to three 18" 800W drivers resulting in an SPL capability of around 140dB! Something to appeal to our friend at Mylor?

We are trying a new venue, The Elephant and Castle Hotel 179 West Terrace, (cnr Gilbert street)

Meeting, 7.30 pm Tues 16th September.
Upstairs in the venue above.

The committee will be having a counter tea from 6pm and others may care to join us.

Keith
