No, that part she understands perfectly. She drives... rapidly.

Mine does not paint my speakers, but she always encourages me to finish project that I've started.

My wife absolutely loves my speakers.

Not for the way they look or sound but that for the amount of time it took to make them, I wasn't getting into trouble or endangering myself otherwise.

My track record has something to do with that. I hate when your baggage follows you.

My wife complains that she keeps getting my hand-me-downs. Last week she went ninja on me and switched my man cave L/R mains for the ones she had in her TV room... now I have to build more.

A colleague of mine (Frank Verwaal) built his own electrostatic loudspeakers several years ago (after spending considerable time digging into the theory), found that the loudspeakers were too large to fit anywhere in his living room and finally sold them. His wife actually encouraged him to keep them, but he didn't listen to her.

Here is my last project, line arrays with 16 microphone capsules, 2 KOhm impedance. I plan to drive them with transformerless SRPP amp on 4P1L outputs. However they will never be loud enough for a living room, but I suspect her patients will never complain about sound quality of soft soothing music in her office. She already said that she loves them how they look. But she does not know yet about my plans. Neither her boss, they share the same room in the office.

Ha! It turns out most accidents are domestic accidents. Killing spouses is one of them. I don't know about you but I'm pretty dangerous with a hammer in my hand. Don't lose your temper holding an electric drill either. Just saying.
