Still Long Overdue Builds build

Upward and Onward... more progress (and continuations...)







Had some spare wood left over so thought I'd put it to good use.



Gluing and routing next.

Glue the magical fruit,
the more we eat,

and even after making a zillion boxes... I still can't make an accurate 90 even if it were to save my life!

Same super tweeter as my LR's from 10khz up, but these don't match the SEOS's in my beds nor the 15inch woofers in each of my beds, nor the UM-15's. But these are low-profile and 1/50th the weight...

No, just maximum surface-area in the smallest possible box.

The tweeter is titanium I believe, and the mid is carbon fiber, and the bass are your standard "UM" glass-fiber cone style.
All very light and stiff with very smooth and extended frequency response; (and super expensive too... about ~$500 per box EKK! )

Roughly ~99db/w/m, and a few hundred watts of power-handling @ 8-ohm; >115db @ 1m from 60hz up, per box.

1m is roughly the listening distance, so...

Ok Owls and Spiders, put away your box of orange crayons. The XO's are on their way

They'll be here when they be's here! (and unlike them, I'm not even lying or faking stuff...)

I mean... clearly this is the TRUE color of PE's website! with 100% honor and truth!!!
[Calm down BTH... you've only been lied to your whole life! ]
Because you know... CO2 isn't a clear/colorless gas?
I mean... how dumb do they think I am exactly?

It STILL might take me 50 years to complete this speaker though, but not because I've lost the knowledge or evidence or tapes!

I used a no resistor design because i wanted to redirect the SPL, not weaken it.

I just hope I can fit the XO's in the boxes I made. I left a good bit of room, but these are rather large filters! I'd hate to waste that wood.

The ONLY downside of trying to jam this many woofers in a box, is that the outer 8 woofers will get about ~3db more power than the inner 8 woofers. Is what it is.

Other than that, it's your normal every-day speaker concept. (Nothing too crazy.)

Sick. Jealous. Kind of.
Looking forward to watching your progress.

@BassThatHz

Can you post that photo of your equipment rack?

I can’t seem to find it and it makes me drool just looking at it

Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)

The newest one I have is from 8 months ago, but it hasn't changed since.


It has full 4K 60P 4:4:4 support with Atmos and DTS:X and IMAX, and about ~100kW. 24x48 channel all-XLR DSP (64bit 96khz) from 7.4.2 base.

My old system was only 1080P DolbyHD and about ~50kW, 3x3x6 channel DSP (16bit 48khz RCA/XLR mix) from 7.1 base.

Just a "little bit" of an upgrade... hehe!

About 90ft of quad 2awg attached to a 200a bus bar, attached to a 100ft run of thick mil-cable to 2 or 3 pole transformers.

No breakers have popped yet. There is literally no way to use all of the power, the speakers and subwoofers are the limiting factor, and your ears.

The 10k's output 1300 watts into each driver.
1300watts into each super tweeter, 1300watts into each 108db/w/m SEOS, 1300watts into each mid.
(Times 7...)
Plus 1300watts into each Atmos.
Plus 8000watts into 16 98db/w/m PA-460's.
Plus another 41.8kW into the other 13 LMS-18's/MalX-21's/24's/UM's.

FINALLY!
an unusable amount of headroom...
...as it should be!

Your ears are toast!
The drivers are toast!

Here is one question for you BTH. Did you get a permit on the panel install? Per code you cant
parallel conductors smaller than 1/0. So Although i am sure it would work just fine it is not a legal installation.

I've been running around with my head cut off lately, I've beefed up the site security measures by 50% so far.
Generating 8.5TB of data a week now.

I got pulled off projects specially to man the security helm.
Got my bag of popcorn. The naruto runners will have a bad hairday if they try a move!

I wore/wear my HD800's for like 8 hours each day for 3 years (because reasons...), so after like ~3000hours the earpads finally turned into some sort of lifeform. Had to buy two pairs of new HD800 earpads. Should be good for another 6 years now!

Anybody use 303 before? I bought some to try it out, should be here tomorrow... (not for the HP's )


Very easy to install, they just pull off and push on (just make sure the plastic wrap is tight before snapping it in, otherwise it will overhang).



Now I just need to FIND the same thing for the headband from somewhere.... seems to be rarer than gold.

Can you tell that I'm just bored out of my tree?

Won't be home for at least another 4 months yet! So while we wait... Microsoft foolishly gave me $14-20k worth of free Azure credits per year.
So for the last 10 days I've been raping their Azure cloud.

via Defender ATP and Security Center ATP.
Which is their Enterprise-edition kernel-level threat monitoring and protection services.

I estimate that if I cranked it "all the way up" I could generated about 60gb of log files per day, which would be about 40 grand worth of consumed cloud-storage per year.
(Let's see how long it takes Microsoft to notice that!!! )










ATP is a bit pricey though at $15 per OS per month (+ data storage fees)
+ the cost of the Enterprise-edition OS licenses themselves.

It's nice having kernel-level threat protection/detection and all, but and I'm not sure if I trust them as a replacement anti-virus service just yet, so you'd STILL need to buy that for each OS too!
I don't know batman...

If they had an on-prem version to keep cloud-storage non-existent then maybe it would be awesome (just like Windows AV Definition updates are today). But they seem to be pushing this cloud junk on everyone a bit too much IMO. It's a money grab move for-sure!

-My 2 cents.

Gluing and routing next.
When I think about Bass that Hurts @ 6 in the morning before I am even fully awake... This is how I know I have a real problem.

For some reason, I have been religiously checking the header image on the PE web for about 3 months straight now. This cannot be healthy.

Anyway, today is the day if you need to replace or add any more of those unique HARB drivers for your line-array!

Well I can tell you that since I bought a whole case of them, I got them for less that that sale price.
I bought exactly the amount that I needed.

I must say, for their size they sure do have a nice frequency response and SPL.
Would I buy them for any other box? Probably not, no...

Just bought two commercial-grade EdgeMax routers for my home theater.
Should be here in a few days.

For non-static service they have no-ip DDNS integration, a linux-based firewall, DPI, routing, encrypted VPN tunneling, bandwidth monitoring and throttling, and number of other features; and I can also power my security cameras with these (this box is about the same size as the power injectors I'm using, so no extra space needed, fairly compact, hand sized basically. Fanless. Runs hot.)

It comes completely unconfigured and it's NOT aimed for home users.


Eventually I'll add more, but this is the first step toward stepping away from poop-grade bestbuy networking gear.

They also have 10gigabit switches and routers for copper and fiber (but they are 10-60x more expensive than this model.)

Now if you need 16x 100gig fiber, then I'm SORRY but you'll have to buy cisco or dell etc, and be prepared to shell out as much as a new Tesla, for just 1 wire and 2 boxes. Top500-grade stuff.
(Or just wait 10 years for it to trickle down to retail and get it for dirt cheap! )

Every time I see an update to this thread from BTH, I get excited that it's going to be another 24" subwoofer build, or the other Hertzhorn build or another random subwoofer build.









.... Then I find out it's just routers and anti-virus software.
