  1. In 1993 I developed a digital signal processing algorithm that required so much computation that I thought I'd never see it run in "real time" during my lifetime. By about 2015 it was running in "real time" on a telephone. What a great time to be an engineer.
  2. Actually, no. It's a TracFone. I bought it outright for $59. I average about $7 per month for my usage style -- talk and text only; data are available but I don't use them.
  3. Do phones really cost that much nowadays? Wow, do I ever feel like a dinosaur. My last phone cost me $59, and yes it's a smart phone. Does everything I need and a few things I don't. But then, I use it almost exclusively for phone calls and texts, the exceptions being those few new electronic devices that require a smart phone just to set-up.
  4. Yeah, it's easy to get caught-up in the excitement of experimentation.
  5. People have reported success with corner-loading, and even with turning the cabinet around so that the mouth points into the corner, so it's difficult to make any predictions.

  8. I agree wholeheartedly. In addition, I have found that many of the remixes ("remasters" they call them) have no bass whatsoever below about 60 Hz. It's annoying when played over a set of loudspeakers that can reproduce bass down into the twenties. I'm also starting to notice that many of them are heavy in the right channel, as if somebody hung their winter coat in front of the right monitor during the mixing session.
  9. I haven't actually tried this, but from the description it may be worth checking-out for your application. I've had no luck with standard epoxy on plastic. https://www.permatex.com/products/adhesives-and-sealants/epoxies/permatex-black-plastic-welder-25-ml/
  10. What I noticed is that none of them is a perfect replacement for the genuine K33E.
  11. Here's the WinISD model of the GRS K33E-4, real Klipsch K33E, Crites CW1526 and CW1526C; all in a 137 liter closed box (which yields Qtc=0.7071 for the Klipsch) and all driven by 2.0 Volts.
  12. I found this: https://testbook.com/question-answer/if-a-brass-core-of-an-inductor-is-replaced-by-an-i--5eb0442cf60d5d42e6590554 Scroll down to where it says, "The type of core material:" and read the bolded text. A brass screw will actually reduce the inductance of an air core inductor.
  13. No disrespect intended, @Travis In Austin, but I had my fill of the legal profession back when I was trying to get my own company off the ground.
  14. I love it when science works! However, make certain that your AC resistance measurements are not also including the inductive reactance magnitude.
