Re: What's to chat about?

Thank you Rich, I will definitely give that a try next time I cut poplar. OH, but if you're using a circular saw, flip that board over so the blade is cutting UP AGAINST the "good looking" side of the board. Now the outer sides and faces of a Tuba / Titan will have BOTH sides of them exposed, so fi...

Re: What's to chat about?

To reduce chipping, apply tape to your cut line, and scrape it on good with your thumbnail or a hunk of plastic like a credit card. Then put as full length of a ruler down as you have, clamp it down, and score that line with a fresh exacto / razor, right on the line. This pre-cuts the facing layer, ...

Ok is it me and my phone (plus an overwhelmed cell tower?), or is the entire internet running dog slow today?

Re: Table tuba or Tuba 18

What about borrowing a page from the old "infinite baffle" scene and cutting a cold air return sized vent in the floor, in the corner you're desiring, complete with decor matching grate, and installing the TTLS in the basement, attached to and firing up through said hole? Maybe do it when she's away...

Re: Tuba 60 Largest setup.

Why does their chart display up to 1khz? To make it look nice and plump and "full of sound"? Or do they realize many of *their* customers don't use limiters / crossovers? :wink:

If they ended it at 200 hz, it sure would look kinda lopsided, half empty.

Re: Low power spl bass setup in truck

Apply stain, let it soak in for a couple hours. Sand it with 000 or 0000 steel wool, then wipe that dust off with Viva paper towels (their texture is really good for this). Apply polyurethane, allow to dry. The fibers will pop up again, though less so- sand again with 0000. Keep repeating until the ...

Re: Bass reflex 18 more efficient than a Tuba 24?

What an odd discussion this is. While my presence here and commenting shows my BFM "bias", the sum total of your comments here are a bit baffling, or at least contradictory. 1- As stated above, you started out comparing a 10in driver folded horn, with an 18in bass reflex. Bill pointed out the apples...

Re: which tuba?

"Just buy the whole CD for $99..." Yup! I am SERIOUSLY frugal (ok, cheap!), and if you're into audio half as much as you seem to be (having that many drivers laying about), that $99 will be the best investment you've made in a long time. You'll have basically every potential base (bass?😆) covered, a...

Re: Low power spl bass setup in truck

As Grant mentioned, someone in here used a non-automobile tuba in his SUV. It's totally not advised, owing to the dangerous SPL generated, but that's that crowd's goal, and yours, too, as long as you're messing around with that realm. You have room for a THT, https://billfitzmaurice.info/THT.html , ...

Re: DR300 Questions

Due to budget constraints, my city has opted to go with a laser fireworks show rather than a standard one. My question can be asked two different ways: Trying to emulate fireworks with my properly limited BFM PA gear, what kind of results could you expect from a pair of DR250s and 3 24" wide T-48s? ...

1 channel cuts out

I have a used Ashly FTX-2001 that has an issue where one channel cuts out, but always comes back if I crank up the volume. Doesn't have to be full blast, but louder than casual volume. I can turn it back down to a comfortable volume, but inevitably it cuts out again. Dirty rheostat?

Re: Tuba HT as sound reinforcement

The problem here, as I see it, is that yes, of course there is a low enough voltage limit to use a THT to play music. To play music at (sane) houseparty levels, even. But in a wide open venue such as a gym or banquet room? Now comes the rub. You could play *edit* very low freq bass through any tuba,...
