Your thread has probably saved a lot of very nice but slow witted folk a lot of money that they probably need to compensate being cable gumps. Be proud noble OP.

I think (and hope) that meanwhile I have come to accept that I'm simply the type of person who believes that everything has an explanation (many times simple), hearing has clearly defined limits and the Universe is fundamentally causal. Other simply believe the opposite. Any blog, forum etc discussion will change maybe 1% of readers' opinions. Right or wrong, facts or fiction, humans are what they are. I just don't care anymore, I just try to focus on things that suit my natural inclinations. Life is short, I am what I am, there's nothing more to it.
On the quality scale of human activities, for me audio gets a low ranking these days.
This is my confession

And why am I telling you all this? LOL I don't know. No reason I guess.
There seems to be a fair bit of this sort of feeling about at the moment - a "sign of the times", perhaps?

I too see this and other forums as just a means for a continuing circle jerk of opinions with little fact presented. People would rather type on the computer than build anything. Have fun doing what you want. I plan on doing the same.

A regular troll here seems to waste a lot of time simply saying that - over and over and over and over again, not only on this thread but also on others.

Sorry things went sour for you. I find plenty of useful (to me) information in these forums: starting points to calculate line level filters, baffle size/ frequency support, saw a zigmahornet? design that I guess adds resonant harmonics to a signal to enhance bass to about 35 hz, baffle step attenuator starting points, others' experiences with same drivers I'm now trying out... And of course I allowed myself to get drawn into some internet hissy fits.
But still, there's plenty here to assist with builds.
Even the name drops are helpful... Heard of Stig Carlsson here first and his designs gave my creative and aesthetic juices a good boost just by trying to understand what he was trying to achieve.
... Anyways, hope things are good for you.

Warning people about snake oil claims isn't trolling or wasting time by any means,I see it as a concerned member who wants to put it out there to warn others.Good on yer mate,I'm right with you.
