Indeed, the M15CH001, trouble, is that driver had a poly cone I never understood that move, at the time SEAS high end prestige was all about the magnesium cones and the special things they could do, so they think 'hey let's release a pure midrange' with a poly cone?

I look forward to seeing the results.

I am always impressed by your CAD work too, the way you or the program handles the copper phase plug and mag cone is really quite nice.

HI Shin,
While you have been away a body of opinion have become brave enough to express the view that remote servers for pics etc is doing the Forum Membership no favours.
I have always voiced an opinion against that practice. It seems it was done to circumvent the Forum's sensible limits on pic size and data handling and/or storage issues.
The Forum still has limits and I for one am hopelessly championing the banning of the use of all remote servers. If it's good enough to be seen, then upload to the Forum so that we can all see in perpetuity. The enormous files on the remote servers take too long to download.

Andrew first off, dial up and that 14" screen haven't been in fashion for over a decade Joking aside though, there's something worth mentioning about this. I use a 2560x1440 monitor and most regular size pictures look pretty small so its harder to tell how large they'll look on a lower res screen, we also have fairly speedy fibre optic net around these parts too. What I'm saying is whilst its annoying for you, its fine for others.

About the uploading to DIYA. The last time I was here the upload facilities for pictures were woefully inadequate - a single 30k file per post. After a quick check I see the forum has had an update and that things have improved. There's now a 195k and 6200x2800 pixel limit. I usually try to keep around 100-150k per image and resize at 1024x576 for 16:9 ratio or 960x576 for 4:3. These fit within the forum limits but there's still the issue of formatting the images within a body of text in a single post. You can't do that with attachments, they simply appear at the end of your post. Not ideal when your trying to break something down into steps. The only way around this is to create separate posts and attach the related image but this pads out what should have been a single post into multiple posts possibly spanning a page or more depending. So the attachment route isn't without evils either but it does seem its the lesser of two evils so I'll upload images to the forums from now on.

Nice to see you on here again! Looks like a neat little design, will be interesting to see just how much you can squeeze from the 4" Seas!

By the time the pic is cropped to show the relevant details the camera screen shape and the computer screen shape are of no relevance to the pic shape.
I can see a 14 Mega Pixel pic on my screen, but it is an abomination to pan around to see the various areas.
Very few if any of the cameras used can show improved detail by exceeding 1Mega Pixels and some are so poorly taken that 100k Pixels has more capability than is contained in the photo.
I think the 1000Pixel limit in either direction is quite adequate for showing the detail that the photographer wishes the viewer to see. I cannot see the need for a 2000Pixel nor 3000Pixel and certainly not a 6000Pixel wide or tall photograph to show off the details very well.
I have seen some pics where the Thumbnail gives a better representation than the full pic.

Good luck with your efforts, Shin! Some folks want to build themselves an awesome DIY setup and then have that. And that's great, they can make a big setup and then stop. I've been trying to learn as much as I can, so I keep making cheap builds. But still, there are only so many places that make sense to put the finished product. I'm pretty pleased when I can convince a friend that we should make speakers for him... If you've found a place to offload many things then good for you!

I love the pics being easily accessible like this.

And love the look of the speakers too!

I have previously mentioned this backstage. No solution yet though.

You can do this though. My post is a case in point example.

A cropped 15 megapixel picture of my sound card.

Click the image to open in full size.

And now a portion of the 15 megapixel picture showing the detail on offer if the picture is competently taken.

Click the image to open in full size.

You can read the 603 case style resistor values.

I for one love being able to do this with tech pictures and would gladly welcome huge pictures if they were taken well enough that this was possible. Shin's pictures are good enough that the added size increases my viewing pleasure and I would rather wait a few more seconds for them to load in.

How to format with attachment images?

We all know how to attach an image, so I won't go into that, but after you've attached them and after they've uploaded, scroll down below the main text entry box for the post you are making. Below and under the section called 'additional options' is a section that shows you the files you've attached to the post.

Click the image to open in full size.

Those links are the links you can use for adding the attachments to anywhere in the rest of your post, just like I've done here.

Edit - I thought I'd add in, that I've seen Dave/P10 doing this several times, it was he that gave me the idea in the first place

Any picture attached on the forum (gallery counts here) can show on the forum. Control-clik (right clik for some) on thr thumbnail, select copy link, then use it as the URL for the image. This guarantees that the picture remains available even if your photo-site or webspace goes away.
