Default Why doesn't DIYAUDIO have a klippel?

I was wondering why DIY audio does not have a klippel machine to test drivers. The guys at DIYMA have a klippel and have been testing drivers and putting up the info for all to use. If we had someone willing to test drivers and post info we could bring the level of all of our speaker designs to a new level. We could also build a library in detailed information on each driver for quick reference.

Are you thinking that diyAudio is a place or an organization? It's not, you know. It's a forum. You've been here long enough to know that, right?

Who would own the Klippel, where would it live? How would it be paid for?

Mike,

I think that DJNUBZ is offering to do it for the satisfaction of making a contribution to the DIY Community.

Best Regards,
TerryO

A very generous offer if you ask me, unlike that mercenary SY who would charge money for helping the diy'ers.

I'd like to see the entire line of Scan-Speak drivers tested first, if that's possible, then the Vifa and Peerless lines.

Thanks in advance DJNUBZ!

Best Regards,
TerryO

You guys can send me the drivers, too. And a hot 18 year old model. Make that two hot 18 year old models. And some 18 year Macallan. And an ounce of Hawaii's best. I'll get a report out to you in, oh, maybe a year or so. Maybe. No promises.

SY,
You're nothing but an unrepentant hedonist of the worst kind, unlike that fine fellow DJNUBZ, who has volunteered to do all this out of the goodness of his heart. Don't you feel ashamed of yourself?

You Sir, are a Cad!


Disgusted in Seattle,
TerryO
