Default Better than medicinal drugs

I finally have everything for my av setup up and running. It uses DSPs for all the crossovers except the sides. It is wonderful, better than drugs, I think largely because I am "doing it myself." I bought kit speakers but am not using the included crossovers. Its wonderful being able to tweak the crossover point and slope, the delay, the levels, and phase without rewiring. Its been a real difficult chore for me but it has been worth it. Next step is some measuring although I'm certain I'm close to what is needed. I have been terribly depressed this past month but believe it would have been worse without this to occupy myself. I had gone several years without a real audio/video system and finally have been able to concentrate enough to set this up, much better than it was before.

Hopefully this is a metaphorical comparison rather than spoken from real life experience.

He did say medicinal drugs, not "recreational" drugs or hard drugs like crack or heroin.

Yes he did - it was supposed to be humor.

It?

I learned that when you are unsure of the gender, the correct protocol is to refer in the masculine.

Theresa's usually a female name. And the OP mentions depression and concentration issues, so I assume the drugs in question are antidepressants. I have a few friends who are on and off those depending on where they're at; sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.

Where's that darn :thumbsup: when you need it? Digital XO and EQ's good stuff if the bit depth's deep enough.

Nice, Theresa! I'm also experimenting with DSP crossovers. Which DSPs are you using? Which drivers?
