  1. It looked like there were two ads for the same item so I merged them.
  2. I would be afraid to do it, poor example in hindsight. But calculating and measuring is how Paul would have done it, and did do it, in many peer reviewed journals.
  3. WWPWKD? He would calculate/measure it, but he could probably do that in his head, and he could also tell you the derivation. After that he would make you a handmade slide rule type thing specifically for your speakers that you could calculate this on the fly (I'm not kidding about that, he did exactly that for performance criteria for his specific airplanes he made himself). He is often quoted as saying "what America needs a a really good one watt amplifier" but I have heard that has been taken a bit out of context, I don't know for sure.

    This thread needs to be updated with recent and new mugshots.
  9. I'm surprised also, saw all of the movie versions, The Spy . . . is on almost everyone's top 50 spy book list.
  10. Welcome to the Forum, you will get a lot of responses on this, looking forward to reading them myself. If may get more attention in the "Talking Tubes" section, so if you would like me to move it there let me know and I would be happy to do so. Travis
  11. I thought Hunt for Red October was a real pager turner, subsequent ones more pot boilers. The Firm, page turner, and some others as well. Pot boiler, never heard term before, I like it. I need a really good spy novel to pick up, and a good detective novel. Something good and classic like Chandler, Fleming or McDonald. How is John le Carre?
  12. What's a "pot boiler." Like a page turner,.or barn burner?
  13. Jim Hunter can comment way more on that,.but the Museum has a 27" 450lb woofer from the 30s that was at the World's Fair "Cinaudagraph loudspeakers in 30" frames with huge 450 lb. field coil magnets covered low frequency duties for a 2-way PA system at Flushing Meadows. The loudspeakers were mounted into horns with 14' wide mouths and were each driven by a 500 watt amplifier derived from a high-power radio broadcast tube. In June 1940, Electronics magazine published an article that Bozak had written about the design of the 27" loudspeaker."
  14. I have to say, seriously, I admire your talent. I could no more do that than fly to the moon.
  15. Right down the road from Bruchladich
  16. Some Bruchladich have made me say exactly that.

    Is it now OK?

    Could be the OP's last thread in the Lounge, and others who follow suit.

    Doesn't fall under any amendment, those amendments restrain the Ferderal Govt., and after the 14th amendment, the States, by incorporation. We really need to bring back Civics in schools.

    Go to Facebook, that bird thing, start a blog, a youtube channel, whatever you want. This is an audio Forum focused on Klipsch speakers. I think everyone needs to be smart enough to know the difference.
