Default Hey all, hope you'll welcome a newbie from up north!

Hey hey! Its nice to see a forum dedicated to in-depth understanding of audio electronics and amplification! I first started the hobby about 5 years ago when I bought my first car audio head unit. Since then, my appreciation and excitement about the hobby has increased to the point where I'm now in 3rd year Electrical Engineering! After spending oodles of money for signal processing and amplifiers, I figure I could probably design my own for 1/2 the price and twice the performance, let alone gain the confidence and pride of saying "I made that"
Anyway, I hope to meet you all and share designs and knowledge about the hobby (obsession)!

Hi 'glyphics, I just joined this place too - it's amazing - the range of people and knowledge. Only looked at diyaudio for the first time yesterday really, and I've been browsing and reading for hours - even about things that are totally irrelevant to my system!

I also have become interested in amps, but I don't really have any electronics knowledge I'm starting at the bottom and hopefully today, I am going to solder in 4 additional 10,000uf caps into my sub amp, that'll show it, hehe.

I must be careful though, my CD player is already in for repair, it broke the day after replacing two caps...

It's just so addictive tho eh?

-Simon

Hey pinkmouse, I would actually reword "youth slang" with "exclusive youth slang". I'm sorry to say but I doubt I'll find anyone on this board who will know what I'm talking about.
Definitive Jux is an underground hiphop label devoted to making some of the most innovative sounding, progressive, and surprisingly intellectual lyricism that is not normally associated with "rap". This label has brought hiphop to the point where it is a very spiritual experience whenever I listen to some of their songs. The emotion that some of the emcees can evoke in the listener far surpasses any other hiphop group from being even close in competition.
Many people will be able to associate "music you can FEEL" with Pink Floyd and the like. For me, it is Definitive Jux. Hiphop to a new level.

Thanks Joe and elizard, CHEERS!
Hey lizard, have you done any projects since you started off here? I was wondering if you know of a place where I could scavenge used components. I'd rather not buy one package of everything at Active Electronics

Oh yeah, I don't know how many of you keep up with modern electronic music, but there are some excellent artists out there right now. I'm 23 so I haven't really grown out of this type of music but I really find it hard to pull myself away from what I've been listening to for years. And it isn't as if what I listen to is shallow pop music either.

Okay, onto explaining that avatar (picture under my name). Aphex Twin (modern electronic music artist) recently recorded a song in which he created that face in the spectrograph. I believe it was something like a 2-5 second blurb and someone found it by accident when plotting the graph.

True, true. I'd never want to live in Churchill
You're lucky you don't have to deal with our continental climate. One day it will be 25 degrees, the next it could be 5 degrees. Everyday is a guess. At least in BC it is relatively constant.

Thanks for the welcome, Dave!

Hey Simon, thanks for the welcome!
What was your original power supply capacitance? You may or may not notice any changes in your bass response (I assume thats what you're trying to improve).
