Default High on Audio

Atleast that's what my friends and family called it at the intervention...haha...

I was just listening to my speakers that I was just enamored with when they were first done, due to being actively triamped, and digitally room corrected, etc. However, I was just listening to Edgar Meyer and Bela Fleck (The Big Cheese from Uncommon Ritual, highly recommended CD, BTW), and the bass just seemed a little...boomy.... I think I am going to start experimenting with sealing the box, or if not...

hmm... I have really been thinking making a transmission line system.... and then I could make gainclones for individual amps and custom build them into the enclosures....


See what happens when you get into building your own speakers. You might as well never put a finish on them because withen months you are reconsidering the whole thing, atleast for me... Maybe I'll leave them as they are... save up my money and make them into line arrays.. I've really been wanting to try that..

Transmission line woofer line, with a line of vifa pl 11s, and I can use my same tweeter... hmm....

Just thought I'd share my insanity with others, haha...

We appreciate your willingness to share your insanity but at the moment there is a surplus, so we won't be needing any additional.

bj, my speakers have been under construction for 20 years, so don't feel bad.

No shortage of crankiness either.

But it appears there is a shortage of a sense of humor.

I'm not sure about a shortage but the distribution seems uneven.

If boominess in the bass is what's bugging you, look into a dipole design.

You persuaded me to look it up as well...LOL.

I was thinking more of this one:
A person who remains aloof from controversial issues.
Bill stays aloof by having his posts removed.
