I should clarify I don't have a TV in my HT room - cum speaker lab/studio. We have a couple upstairs. Between work and foam core speakers there is barely time to sleep let alone watch TV. Although I make special provision for game of thrones.

Funny, and definitely at least partly true.

For myself, I've never felt exactly smug about it. Since I left home in 1979, I've never owned a TV, sometimes by choice, sometimes by income. While I sometimes watch (and even LIKE!) TV, I do feel STRONGLY that TV has the POTENTIAL to be bad news for kids...

Of course, if I could build a DIY FC TV with my kids, I'd be all over it...

OT but TV's destructive force is greatly mitigated if you don't watch broadcast, with commercials etc. We've always had TVs but limit the screen time and don't watch cable/broadcast etc. Just movies on hard media/netflix streaming.

Nothing more than good old 2.0 via built in headphone out jack. I need to get a multichannel sound card - I hear that one can do all the DSP crossover and filters in the PC. Or get a miniDSP.

Asus Xonar Essence ST soundcard is not a bad start and with an add on card it can be multi channel...

Default Teardrop Build Begins

So it begins... all these teardrop/eggshape enclosures have got me interested in making a neat sealed enclosure that minimizes back wave reflections. I made some gore panels hoping for a 7 sided unit but as I am gluing it, it looks like no more than 6 will end up fitting. (7 to prevent parallel wall resonance). Here is what I have so far. I must say this goes very quickly and is quite easy with foam core. Amazing what one can accomplish between morning coffee and leaving for the day.
