Hi Kevin, It's what I normally use for the speed of sound (by the way i used the word nut to suggest I do it often, nothing else )

Close enough to the speed of sound at 343.2 meters per second..

Normally I think of this as about 1 mile in five seconds and is what I use to tell me to get indoors in a thunderstorm..

Once in a while I think about this in terms of 1126ft/sec when working with speakers. Funny I use SI units most of the time for technical stuff, except for speaker cabinet design..

Good to be an audio nut imo..

I find that working with something in dual measures is good brain calisthenics. We were firmly in imperial measures until the mid 70's where we went metric, just before colour TV here, the year after Canada got theirs IIRC.

LOL

How about allowing your wife to have a sewing/crafts room, so that down the road, you can ask for an audio room/electronics lab?

You know your an audio nut when..

Everything you buy or make sounds rubbish...and the problem is that everyone else seems to have a better system..

Or the latest picture in a magazine proves it must sound better than what you already own..

Regards
M. Gregg
