Ron,

"There are too many unsubstantiated general statements in your text. You would do well to track down supporting literature, etc."

My statements are drawn from the experience of others, mostly dave. If I had access to any supporting literature Iíd look there too.

audioXpress in January - February 2006 had Lowering a Loudspeaker's Mechanical Noise Floor, Pts 1 & 2; and in February 2002 "Panel Damping Studies: Reducing Loudspeaker Enclosure Vibrations", but I donít have audioXpress . . Anyone who can post a summary or better a PDF?

Cheers

Well it certainly sounds like a good start, though it might be better to try a top-down approach and get stuck into the details later. Try sorting out some headings and sub-headings first.

If people are going to make use of the wiki, they'll need to be able to find the information they want, quickly and efficiently. Keeping in mind possible FAQs, some headings might include, eg:

Bracing
-Purpose
--detailed reasoning
--[another sub-sub-heading]
-Materials and techniques
--[sub-sub-heading]
...etc

"Bracing" could itself be grouped with "loudspeaker design techniques" or something along those lines. Then, even if you run out of time, other people will have an easier job of adding stuff.

"loudspeaker design techniques" is a very worthy and very big topic

The biggest I thought Iíd make this is cabinet design & making techniques, but I thought Iíd KIS it for now, and it could grow later.

Iíve actually not used the wiki much at all , though Iíll be looking at the horn wiki real soon . .

I thought the structure was ok, anyone else thinks the structure needs work before the content is worked on?

So why should anyone believe your wiki?

Hang on...isn't a wiki DIY? If you want a wiki, you make a wiki! If a moderator has to initiate things it's more of a static web page.

And not knowing how to create a wiki page is no excuse - this is a DIY forum!

Thanks for the link, Iíll read it

Jeff

ďa moderator has to initiate thingsĒ?
"excuse"?

I thought it was clear, Iíd make a wiki when I get the feeling that itís mostly right.
So far no one has said this . .

I donít believe itís right to give a bunch of statements wiki status, just because I think theyíre probably right, without more positive feedback

I interpreted one of your messages as a request that Dave wiki the material. A misunderstanding it seems.

Well, now that you mention it, i've actually started a static page that goes in a similar direction here .

I wrote a bit about sealed speaker boxes, ported, dipole, acoustic labyrinth, and a couple of other things before running out of steam... You guys are welcome to make use of it if you think it's any good (but try not to hot-link the images though).

I think wikis can be a lot better because they're so much more extensible and easier to maintain compared to static web pages. I don't think it matters if a certain piece of information is 'worthy' or not Ė someone else can always improve on it.
