    Pro, Home, and Car Audio. Electronics of any kind actually. Skateboarding too.
  1. Think the battery needs a charge...
  2. I hope to be a tenth as accomplished in my lifetime. Much respect.
  3. Merry Christmas as well! Everyone behave this new years as well!
  4. I'd say maybe look into the craigslist market and find a nice vintage. Otherwise check out Parts express. Lots of good items on there for good prices.
  5. WOO HOO! What'd you end up buying?
  6. I wonder how much those cost. Looks identical to a Dayton Full range driver. Wonder if it is....
  7. I need to do some research as well. I am skeptical if a 50 cent condenser mic is going to have the bandwidth or response of a Earthworks measurement mic (or comparable), but if it is relatively flat up to 20K, you can't go wrong for $0.50
  8. What are your setting like on the receiver. EQ. Sounds like you are describing distortion but a better description of the distortion would help pinpoint exactly what it might be. Is it on all sources or is it limited to a single input.
  9. You have the worst luck imaginable with electronics! Two things die in one thread! Still interested to see these amps. I really want to do something like this, but I just have too many excuses I really should after spending time in school for electronics. Refresh my brain! Any details on the DIY condenser mic sounds awesome. That'd be a fun one to try out! Do you construct everything, or is it more of a kit?
  10. My boss showed me a cool website yesterday and thought I'd share it here. It's mostly on broadcasting and recording, but there is an audio section. It's all old magazines and periodicals pertaining to audio that have been scanned and put on the internet. It's like a time machine! Wish I could go back and buy a McIntosh amp for $135 that they have advertised in 1954!
  11. Aaron, What is up with all the RSS articles in the Resources section?
  12. HERE! Have been busy though. Lots of work to do and no signs of slowing down. Good and Bad I guess. I have some projects I want to do, Just need to take some time after my work days. Weekends are reserved for the nice weather.
  13. Sorry for the late response, in no way should the bass affect/effect the CD player. Vinyl is susceptible to feedback of that nature. It is an analog signal that relies on picking up vibrations from the record surface. The grooves in the record are that analog signal, which cause vibrations on the needle that are amplified multiple times to get the power to your speakers. Playing your system loudly could have cause vibrations to through your floor, through your furniture, then to your record player. Those vibrations are they picked up by the needle again. Imagine this cycle repeated over and over. This is feedback. Same principle as a microphone in front of a speaker. CDs are digital, and the signal consists of 1 and 0s. CDs are optical devices. A laser picks up the 1s and 0s that are decoded and made into an analog signal. The nature of CDs make them immune to things like feedback the way a record player would get it.
  14. That's what they're for! Did you use a crossover of any sort?
