What ya tryin to say, I am a post whore?
What do you think of the van front stage? Better than my HT cubes at least :-P I myself am tight on funds as well...had a pile of money for a minute and did both builds (including realestate and van both purchased to litterally house the stereos)
[quote author=chrisbee board=projects thread=1734 post=23547 time=1306529569]The criticism that are using a distinctly inadequate "test microphone" has already been flagged. REW's cal file for the Shack SPL meter runs out of steam an octave or more above your target frequencies. The correction factor as you sink below 10Hz is huge! It might reasonably be suggested that you are testing with a micrometer dangling from the end of a piece of string. (US: length of cord?)
The guys who calibrate microphones for a living might also argue that your tests have no validity. Do you have any friends (left) who might lend you a professionally calibrated microphone and preamp just long enough to confirm your results?
As I gained a few more harsh critics recently such as yourself, I have gained a lot more fans. I am not saying Ricci, notnyt, or Bosso are fans by any means, but their posts alone make the coments of no longer having any friends roll off my back (unless maybe you meant my bass irritating neighbors? In which case I apologize)
At any rate youre not telling me anything I don't know. I know the mic rolls off. I know the results arent solid. You seem to not get that while you sit there and look over everything with a fine tooth comb, I dont care that much about specifics. It is all general to me.
This I know for fact: When I measured the towers then measured IB then measured current ported then measured windows sealed up then ceiling braced, I am NOT claiming the numbers themselves are accurate. I know for a fact that I gained below 10Hz going IB, then I gained below 10Hz by porting it, then I gained below 10Hz by boarding up the windows, then I gained below 10Hz by bracing the ceiling... how much exactly? IDK, but the invalid sub 10Hz testing is an indicator.
fine tooth comb away, knock yourself out!
