Bruce - I did not list any specs. I was suggesting a way that Bill could actually list the driver options and T/S recommendations for each cabinet in a way that made it easy for engineers or pro audio people to find right away. I don't think Bill has a "Super Dooper Tuba 900" designed yet - just showing an example of what might be handy for pro audio guys that are thinking about one of his designs.

This forum seems to be a part time job/hobby/social media for a lot of you. I appreciate spending weeks/years wading through this stuff on the forum might be fun for some of you but I do not have that kind of time. I am used to working with JBL, EV and EAW where you have PDF's with all the information you need including cabinet size, driver specs, etc. and you can get the information you need and make decisions in a matter of hours.

Good luck to all of you. Moving on.
Hi Matt,

Most "engineers and pro audio" people, if they're using the driver and cab designs you quote, they are not as good as Bill's designs. There are engineers and pro audio people here as well.

You may find, as I did, that Bill's 'style' is quite hard to adjust to initially, but once you figure it out, the approach is doing you no harm, and in fact helping you, and that is the value-added of spending time here. If you want to make speedy decisions about inferior designs, based on nicely coloured marketing literature, then that is what you will do - but if you are searching for something more then you won't ultimately be satisfied until you deal with whatever issue is in the way, which is initially most likely to be combination of lack of knowledge and-or stubbornness. They're hard one's to crack, but if you fail the test this time, you'll only get to take it again further down the road. :D

I hope you are able to rationalise this and see it.

Best regards,

Charles

This was the last post from him almost 8 weeks ago. I think the forum made the point clear, so, shall we call it quits on this thread?

P.S.-I really appreciate this forum because it tries to help everyone improve, the product is solid, and costs are minimal in comparison to other routes.
