Yikes! That's low. At least you're honest that it's mostly the harmonics you hear.

Yeah, that is real cool he was on Dreamboat Annie.. On the LP he is mentioned in the credit section for each song, for bass on the song How Deep it Goes, but on the CD nothing about him.. When I listen to that album the bass quality on the song he did sounds a tad better to me than all the others done by Steve Fossen.. If anyone has the album crank it up ,and see if I`m just biased about the bass, or if it`s better in quality than the other songs That has got to be ONE of the better classic rock female vocal albums ever imo..


Also didn`t yll notice he also laid down some bass for Jessica Simpson

cool he`s mentioned here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreamboat_Annie

let me guess - you're single, no kids, right?

I like the use of a toilet hold down flange for mounting the speakers in your PVC project. Takes a plumber to recognize that.

nice work - I notice that several of your sub designs are sealed with one driver pointing out of the box and one driver pointing in. Could you give an explanation to why you design in this manner and what advantage you have found?

cheers,

Equal loudness hearing curves aside, the bass pickup is in a terrible position to pickup the open strings fundamental proportional to its second harmonic (it would have to be at the 12 fret to be in the Ideal position but then your in the 2nd harmonic null.

Nope no kids, just a GF.

I walked into the hardware store with my seas speaker, and was thrilled that the toilet flange worked.

Those little things sound pretty good. I think I should put a fiberglass damper around the thing, to kill some diffraction.

The th BS-212 is a ported sub, but the benefit of reverse firing reduces 2nd harmonic distortion (possibly other even harmonics).


Subjectively, the 3 way stereo, and the pair of BS-212 subs make for one awesome home stereo. Give a little appropriate EQ boost bellow 80Hz (I do 6dB shelve) and and extra 3dB bump at 20Hz.

Its simply stunning having that much clean sub bass headroom for medium small listening environment.
