    JL Audio making Home subs

    Quote: Originally Posted by Prozakk If you must have a super small sub, you must not care to reproduce the bottom octave. You might as well do an IB setup. You GET the bottom octave, and it takes up NO space in your room. Not quite, the sunfires use EQ and thousand+ watts to...

    Pocketknives, any body into Knife-Fi?

    I used to think that my benchmade minigrip was an absolutely horrible knife. It couldn't hold an edge worth beans. However, I recently got a lansky style sharpener and put on a nice big fat obtuse angle on the steel, and now it actually holds up sorta ok. You just can't take a 40 degree included...

    Pitbulls invade old woman's home, chew her face off

    Pitbulls are bred to fight other dogs, not humans. Aphex nailed it on the head, afaik. Pitbulls that show inclination to attack humans are put down by serious breeders.

    Right Turns on Red in California

    No, you can turn right on red - after stopping - in California, unless marked that you can't make a right turn on red.

    Any anime series that you've been enjoying?

    More exciting than opening an audio-related package...

    I think it's more exciting than audio. Just like buying good music should be more exciting than buying gear.

    Yamaha goes 11.2 with new receiver.

    If you already understand all about psycho-acoustics and blumlein recording techniques, my hat's off to you. But weren't you the one trying to say to me that EQ can work for a large area? The best it can do is make the best of a bad situation.

    Steve Hoffman HeadFest DVD Available

    Yes, you're right, the video isn't bad, per se, it's just a conference. Still, that would be GREAT for compression, with 70% of the frame being static, and the remaining 30% still not being all that dynamic. It's a shame about the audio. Anyway, thanks again for the vid. It's great for those of...

    Steve Hoffman HeadFest DVD Available

    The streaming version is very good for people with just a passing interest, but I still think there is room for an "inbetween" option. There is some room between the streaming quality and the dvd version - but torrenting the dvd is a little ridiculous given the quality of the video/audio...

    Someone please compress this video, please, pretty please? It's not "DVD" quality, anyway. We're in it for the content. This thing would be perfectly fine in a 1cd size. Or even less, to tell the truth.

    My house just got burglarized!

    It's pretty scary what they can do with any window. I read that you just duct tape the window up and it won't be that loud when you break and enter. Good to hear that everyone is safe.
