thanks for missing me guys. odd i never thought i would be.

i got crazy busy and still am (see time of this post).

1. my son (all of 10 months now) keeps me busy
2. we are moving so i can be inbetween my 2 jobs instead of negotiating 120 mins of harrowing traffic every other day
3. got involved in a tech startup (http://novitaz.com) and was working from pm till 4am last few weeks on this.
4. still have my day job (http://www.emagindia.com) from 9am to 6pm.
5. my mom has had knee trouble (meniscus, oesteo arthrithis, etc... which complicaes her back (oestoporosis) recovery.
6. helping a few friends out (one with a messy divorce, one with getting married - equally messy as the parents object to the union, and the other...ohh forget this) what are friends for.
7. was on the road in NYC for the month of JAN (bloody freezing for a Bombay boy).

to add to this i lost a week and my hard disk due to my laptop's modem. (this is along story but anyone who can help me with a sony laptop modem raise your hand).

my speaker project is stuck. I got the baffle done got the inside lined with resin bonded fiberglass . I got the bass amp done. i got the inductors and caps for the passive XO. gotta find time to finish it. the XO as you know will be on top. the top will be smoked black glass that can be removed using suction cups so i tinker. the paint finish will be glossy black. however we are working on renovating new apt. so we can move. my wife is very particular about the exact paint colours, upholstery, etc. and this takes time to find and put across to the workers.

got baffle for center speaker (MMTTMM) done. the center will have 2 tweeters in vertical array. one tweeter will operate from 2-20k while the second will operate from 2-8k. this is done to increase power handling of tweeters to same level as 4 Mids. Mids are 4.5" Vifa TC and tweeters are 3/4" Vifa TC.

rear speakers will be either JBL Pro III, Boston Acoustics A60s, or 6" 2 way Vifa TC. depending on time available.

thanks guys for missing me you got me all teary. :-(

will post as soon

Love
Navin
