No, actually, they're on the ceiling. I accidentally posted the pics upside down.

Seriously, I assume they are functioning as subwoofers and I doubt the low placement is going to be much of an issue. However I should also add that I have not heard any report at all on how these sound . . .

That is really funny!

cool art project! I am sure it sounds good. BTW, not to be a butthole, but those photos reek of photoshop... Is there a website? is this legit?

Speaking of dogs,

The "Annabelle NF" renamed now the "Oniyama NF" (Naturflux dragonfly) after my favorite insect in Yamanashi during my visit. It is still dedicated to annabelle, my 14 year old corgi.

WELL, NOW YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO.

By the way, when transliterated into English, it's usually Oniyanma.

P.S. Does that name mean you plan to finish it in black, yellow, and green urushi lacquer?

Yeah, if it was oni-yama it would be devil mountain. But it's "devil yanma" -- yanma being the Japanese word for large dragonflies.

The first of the Chinese characters shown above is read by the Japanese as "oni" meaning demon or devil. That pronunciation has nothing to do with the original Chinese pronunciation of that character, by the way -- it would be much the same if we decided we were going to use that Chinese character in English and pronounce it as "devil." The second two characters together are pronounced yanma by the Japanese and although I know those characters are also used to represent dragonflies in the Chinese language (thanks, Google!), I suspect that the Chinese pronunciation is probably entirely different . . . not that I speak Chinese but usually the right-hand side of a Chinese character will give a hint as to how it is pronounced and nothing in either character suggests that it would be anything near to "yanma" in Chinese. So it is probably a typically Japanese expropriation of Chinese characters to represent Japanese words.

Enough for today's Japanese lesson . . .

So, how are these devilish enclosures coming along? When can we look forward to a progress report?

Yawning. Shibas do that a lot when they are displeased.

Chris,

Thanks for posting the speaker pics. I was looking for more and stumbled onto your visit to the Sound Mates store post from May 31, 2007. Somewhat amusing to say the least.

Jeff
