Default Neville, RIP

Not sure if it is picked up anywhere in the numerous forums, but I saw that Neville Thiele passed this morning.

My thanks to Bodhan for passing this on.

What an innings to use a cricket metaphor
Not retiring makes you live longer I suppose.
Thanx for posting as I missed this locally, but even if he deserved it he wouldn't get a state funeral I suppose.

we all owe him a huge debt...

edit (oops, Moondog beat me to that link)...
Impedance varies with frequency, use impedance plots of your drivers and make crossover calculations using the actual impedance of the driver at the crossover frequency

'Just read a testimonial article to the memory of Neville Thiele OAM in the November issue of local magazine, SILICON CHIP.

It was written by a long time associate, friend and audio manufacturer, Ron Cooper, of Audiosound Laboratories.
There is a snap of them together with Richard Small, of the "Thiele-Small Parameters" team in 2010.
The article is not yet referenced on the SC website for a glimpse but it is a reminder of great times and
great figures in our audio pioneering past and present. We will come to miss them all.

I just learnt that today. Sad.

Does anyone remember that Thiele one day said something like :
"parameters do not exist in reality, they only belong to simulation" ?
I would like to know the exact phrase and when he said it,
I think I read it in AudioXpress and it was pronounced during an audio meeting.

Neville Thiele and Richard Small brought the "art" of driver in a box design into the age of real science and engineering. Thanks.
