Default DIY Audio Girls!

No, DIY Audio Girls aren't a slick new pop trio. Calm down, boys. Get a grip. Settle.

It's Friday night. I've just finished a hard week's work. I've got a couple of Jim Beams inside me and I've got a very serious question. Earthshakingly serious. How serious? Well, imagine you've got a nasty, pounding hangover; you're hugging the toilet bowl and you're making all sorts of ridiculous promises to God if he'll only take Mr Pain away. Yep, that serious.

Here it is.

The question:

Um.... how many chicks are on the the DIYAudio forum?

Mmm?

C'mon, girls, let's have it! Identify yourselves! Please....

im a garlie whenever i feel like dressing up like one, just like my dear papa.

I know one female who enjoyes fiddling with DIY electronics, I have tried to persuade her into DIYAUDIO, but to no avail.
But she´s a little bit interested in loudspeakers, she would like to have a new pair , so I sugggested the Proac clones to her

what children we could have ! children who could measure the frequency response of a loudspeaker before they could walk!

What's the problem with asking that?

You automaticly see where we come from, there's a topic about our musical tastes...

It just has nothing to do in the loudspeakers section

I must admit I do think it's an interesting question.

Look how many times the question of SAF is mentioned. How many of us men have to compromise our hi-fi kit for the pleasures of female companionship?

Most women seem to want speakers that fit into a room. What a strange idea - we'd happily settle for a room that fits into the speakers.

So, let the women come forward (if there are any out there). Let's get a female perspective.

I think the other way around is more practical most of the time (I admit there are exceptions !!)

Default janneman has it right

Don't you think there is some irony in asking the women in the community to make themselves known by referring to them as "chicks". If you were a woman interested in audio, would you respond to that?

Let's try to be more mature.

I think they are legitimately called "chicks" in New Zealand.... but in a non-offensive way.

I can't remember the reason why, but i'll bet it has something to do with the small, flightless bird; the kiwi.

They love that little scamp.

The dutch hifi.nl forum has 1 girl at the moment. She's one of those studio types

Don't think she does any DIY though
