works ok
it even works in bypass mode

but it tells me that my future preamp build may be all I will ever need
that feels good, somehow
but if this speaker goes active, I will still have some means of controlling the sound

I guess we dropped the distortion requirement along the way and I missed that. Should be relatively straight forward then.

I hope so

well, may not be that simple, it seems
part of my problem right now is distortion

its fine at low SPL
but I loose the clean sound when I play just moderately louder than low

funny, I just now found that the compressor has a high/low gain switch, for active/passive pickups

wonder what gain will be optimal for my tube pre

got the plywood itch
had some 6mm plywood leftovers
and glued them together, into 12mm pieces
and hopefully the end result will be a nice box
