No doubt a higher quality choice. I have a WEN roofing nailer that looks like the big brother of that thing, and it has served me quite well. After several falls to the ground, it keeps on kicking.

Clamps work great, and sometimes they're the only way. But a brad nailer is just so much faster and easier.

I was part of that crossover and directivity discussion earlier in the thread, and I was one that voiced concern over the 308 in comparison. Looking back at the measurements now, I'm not so sure I...

1. Drilling a single hole between each chamber for wires would be a good idea. I drilled after they were assembled, but it would have been easier before. Doesn't make much difference on the binding...

You've piqued my curiosity. How's the sound quality on satellite radio with a standalone tuner?

We had a free trial of it when we bought a new car, and we thought the sound quality was so bad as...

Just thinking out loud here... Do we know that linear translation of driver displacement to rotor pitch is what we want? We could calculate an ideal of course, but it's not obvious to me that a...

I have the same Sony tuner that Ray does. It sucks to have to go external, but at least it's small.

You shouldn't need one. If you've only got one signal to send to the subwoofer, just plug it into either side. Your gain knob will end up slightly higher than if you had the same signal going in to...

Ah okay. I have a 'scope. It does not have a waveform generator.

REW has a waveform generator, as long as you just want sine waves.

Are you passing audio to the receiver via ARC or optical? Either way, I think there's a setting in the sound section to tell it whether you want Dolby Digital or stereo.

I have a FM/TV separator that I tried in my setup too. It's either the same model or something similar. I'm no longer using it. So if they've become hard to find and somebody needs one, let me know.

A steep slope all the way up at 28Hz huh? That makes for a pretty big difference from what I have now.

Damn banner indeed.

Wasn't it blabbering about some service that was to end April 1? I haven't turned mine on today, but I was sure hoping that now, April 2, it would have gone away.

The angles are all small enough that gaps at joints are small. Don't bother with bevels. Just let the glue fill them.
