Re: Tuba 45 Build

Uh-oh: noises hath issued from the caves where Leviathan's name was last spoken... Perhaps a horn of that throat length wouldn't be used to hit 17hz, but to 1 hit 25hz (ok, maybe 20 8) ) with authority 2 provide an even safer boundary between blown drivers and audio nervana 3 provide amateur and low...

Re: Build: 4x Ultralight 200mm Double Reverse cabs

Seth, I have some 1/2" thick state of the art (for 1960?) aircraft flooring, honeycomb design. It weighs 40% of 1/2" BB inch for inch. Think you could use a hunk for the bottoms of a couple of your cabinets?

Re: Bands that do speaker placement completely wrong and still sound good

I'm not being a hater here, but I listened to several of Sun's songs, and they remind me a lot of Swans: massive dBs and about 3 or 4 notes for 20 minutes. With that kind of content, is high fidelity REALLY that important and or noticeable? Also, what percent of the audience is wearing earplugs? Yes...

Bill, have you been tutoring in your off time? :lol: "The mysterious booming sound that’s been rocking a New Jersey town is apparently the result of a homemade “hail cannon” designed by a vineyard owner to protect his crop from bad weather, he and police told The Post. Rob Butkowski of Hammonton sai...

Come down here, deer

Seeing as how everyone here has done a very good job of warning us of the dangers of suspending mains over the heads of litigants (at least without an engineer's signature), have any of you used or considered using 10-16' tall deer hunting tripod stands? Some, like this one, are rated to 500 lbs, wh...

Compression horn minimum distance

What's the recommended minimum distance from DR250s with compression drivers to front row of an audience?

I did half a dozen searches, didn't find it. Thanks.

Re: Sound Proofing my Home Theater Room

The new, separate ceiling won't be full on load bearing, so you could probably get away with something smaller, maybe 2x4s. Is the existing basement ceiling finished? If not, could you nestle whatever size rafters you decide on in between them, so that they share the common space between them? The f...

Re: La Scala + TT Placement Options

If those are kneewalls, depending on where the subcrawl results lie, an option for tidiness is cutting and finishing a hole in the drywall, then locating the mouth of the sub up against the new hole in the wall, firing into the room. Acoustically silent speaker mesh covering the opening can keep tra...
