Default DAVE in Tucson Arizona USA!!

Hello,

Im a Newbie to the DIYaudio page,

I live in Tucson Arizona, USA, its always hot here.

I got into audio stuff at an early age and found a job as a car audio installer. This job soon became frustrating working for bosses with little to no understand of audio. The itch to learn more lead me to UofA where I got my BS in EE. I now have the tools and just need to read some more books on audio to get a better foundation. Im here to learn...

sound quality is the goal.


Ive read some impressive threads, so it looks like Ill stick around.
Maby Ill be of help too?

Hi Dave,

Welcome. I went back to get my EE with a similar motivation. I was trying to understand the Thiele/Small papers and needed a stronger foundation.

I found this after I replied to the speaker box thread.

I'm sure you'll enjoy it here.

The new found intrest during my eduation was that of control theory. Mike k posted a thread reply in reguards to the stability of an amp after adding a capacitor chaning the root locus....

Thats great stuff...

I wish I did control design "on the job" but Im just a boring Applications parts engineer guy....."paperwork"

If you didnt notice my avitar is milton from "Office Space", pretty much Milton at work describes my day, I even have two bosses named Bill....

Default Tucson Too

Dave,

I'm in Tucson too. It's not always hot, it just feels that way

I just joined this group last week. I found it a year or so ago but I have been so busy with other interests that I rarely checked in here.

I'm building a center channel and rear surround speakers right now to go with my front mains and sub. Also built a tube amp kit a few months ago.

Next up will be either a Balanced Zen Line Stage or the Aleph P 1.7. Then on to the Amps.

Russ

Sorry havent checked DIYaudio in awhile.


Tube amp build sounds cool!

I finished some fiberglass speaker pods I was workign on for my jeep afew weeks ago, there nice! A 6.5in woofer, 4in mid, and 1in tweeter all in tucked into the kick pannels. Boston acoustics stuff sounds great!

Looks like the 1ton axle swap will happen on the jeep soon so no current audio projects to show off.

Howdy from just down the road a bit.
If you can call I-10 a road, and 1000 miles a bit.
