      Finalized the prototype design and got all the 16 drivers. Yes, this will have 8 drivers per channel. Now to do the 10 channel amp, D class.

        Thinking about controlled directivity smaller 2-3 way build after this.

      bought 2000usd worth of drivers for my own full range dipole design. Should be very slim and have a huge WAF. might go mot if it works out.

        Thanks guys! For now I'm prototyping the main board, I have several ideas, didn't fully commit to one yet. I've done the subwoofer part of the box, should measure 25x55x67 in cm, something that should be more than nice for a full range full size dipole.

        What's not so nice is that in order to get more power than lx521 in low bass from such small enclosure you need to get 8 sb acoustics subwoofers. They are vented beautifuly, powerful enough, big xmax. Full vibration cancelling, no resonances. We'll see. @murphythecat not sure yet, I'll have 2, for low and high mid. Looking at making the whole thing with sbacoustics drivers, I really like them.

        @zerodeefex I'm from Europe so no craigslist for me unfortunatelly. Purrin uses these right? I'll look into it, thanks. :) If you two like them that means they are probably very good. Not sure if it'd work out in my particular case, but I'll research it. Thanks :)

      At about 1.8x my body weight at deadlift, 1.5x at squat, and 1.2 at bench as of now, while cutting. Started at nothing couple months ago.

        Great progress...I was into lifting till last year. Will return once this Covid thing is over. Although I couldn't make great progress in muscle mass but my HDL increased and LDL and triglyceride decreased + my eating habit improved

        I've turned one room into a home gym. Got a squat rack, bench/incline, olympic bar and a crapload of weights. Resistive bands and dumbbells.

        Finally done with amps. Big box is 4 channels for the lower part of lx521, small packed box is 6 channels for the upper part.

        When you pump iron, do you melt the iron first or is your blood basically magma?

        P.S. On weights too. Starting light.

        I'm generally pretty much a bamboo pole type of figure. It was once said of me that if I stood sideways and stuck my tongue out I'd be mistaken for a zip. I remember having a 28-inch waist and finding it really hard to buy clothes.

        However, I'm quite pleased that the pair of trousers I wore in London, which would not do up under the belt last year, did so this year. (And that Marks & Spencer replaced that belt, for which I did not have a bill, because it had delaminated.)

        We got caught in a thunderstorm that came out of nowhere. Got soaked, lightning struck 50m from us, we were in the forest :/
        Lost my flipflops in the stream, had to go barefoot through all that several km
        Super interesting weekend

      Apparently pure silver is the best possible metal for electricity. But contacts made of silver introduce noise.

        Absolutely! Electrons know how much you paid for the cable and adjust performance adequatelly. That's why you must never buy second hand too!

        On a serious note, no, I don't see why we would at all.

        Just one more point, then I'll shut up about metals!

        Always seems to me that people are saying that silver sounds /brighter./ Anthropomorphism much? Why aren't the bass-heads using lead cables? |lol|

        It does slightly, but it might just be a perceptual thing because it also sounds slightly faster. You can also affect bass slightly by using thicker cables. It's all pretty small changes though, and I mainly get nice cables for the ergonomics of a soft cable that doesn't make noise when it rubs on clothing/chair.

      I'll revive my old tesla coil from high school. Should be fun. Made high voltage caps, need to degass enclosures and fill them with oil.

        I'll probably build some spherical enclosures and tinker with that first. Headphone parts? Uh... that's a lot more complex, like an order of magnitude. Not sure i'd have the time, will or knoweledge to do that
