I've got Audacity and saved it as an avi file and then compressed it. Don't have time today to play any further, perhaps later in the week.

Ya, Audacity will do the job, great application I use it almost daily.
So anyway, my wife has a bone to pick with you guys... I just got started on the foam core building... Oh boy, this is fun. Shocked how good they sounded.

Edit: Looks like you figured it out. Wow they sound great!

Edit: Details, it is a mini-labyrinth Scottmoose posted in a thread about the TB W3881SI. They are stuffed loosely with some polyfill. I am no the neatest builder and foamcore with hot glue is a foreign medium for me as of yet, but I am having fun and will get better!

They look good and should work fine. Mine is of similar design as was the old Admiral Tunnel reflex. I lined my tunnel with polyfill blanket padding but stuffing them should also work. The idea is to absorb the mids and highs.

Mine wants to give X a big smooch.

I'm indoors where she can keep an eye on me and I'm nowhere near the TV remote.

That's not a bad job for your first FC build. I can see the addiction setting in... You will constantly have to go to Dollartree to see your foam junkie to get the next fix!

They sound good don't they? Whowouldathunk that some flimsy paper and foam can compete with wood for a speaker.

Glad you are having fun. I can see that it is indeed a 'kitchen table' project - which is how all this got started for me.

Regards,
X

Ken,
Great that you figured out how to use Audacity and the Zoom together to post sound clips.

Default Foam Core Amplifier! Update

It's a little off topic, but it is related to foam core. I finally made a little more progress on my foam core class-D amplifier project. Finding time has been tough lately. More in this thread:

This statement here and the one below aren't the same to me.

I don't think they do. I have more than a hunch that any of the 3 foam cores I have built would be considerably better in wood. I just wish I could build them. Perhaps it's better that I can't, if you know what I mean.
