  1. Real life sounds - instantaneous loudness

    Did you read where we found out Lone Survivor's minute-plus long helicopter scene (ch 4-6?) had a 6.7 Hz pseudo sine wave about 10 dB hotter than the rest of the sound track? Almost blew up 2 of my test Mariana 24s that didn't have limiters. Apparently sound engineers don't know what a spectrum analyzer is either.

    You're getting real close to being that old guy yelling "get off my lawn." "Back in my day..." LOL! But I agree. One of my favorites is still Dire Straits - Money for Nothing as it was one of the first CDs where I could tell it was recorded better than most of the other records of the day. Dynamics in spades.

    Thanks for the PM Kvalsvoll! Responded.

    Sorry to take it off topic with the sound velocity meter but I really didn't as I've noticed what you described above as well. Why does a 12" midbass have more impact than a 6"/8" midbass when played back at the exact same sound pressure level? I've asked multiple times, at least on AVS and I haven't ever received a satisfactory answer. I was hoping measuring the velocity would help point me in the right direction so I can understand this phenomena better. If you have ideas on the physics, I'd love to hear it. And I'd love a pointer to a thread (couldn't find the one you referred to) on a velocity measurement kit to build or device to buy. Purchase depends on cost as well as if that will help me understand this size difference better. Thanks.

    Sound velocity meter? I'd love to measure sound velocity as well as pressure. Tell me more please.
  6. JTR Speakers Captivator 118HT

    Yep, you had me thinking...aluminum, concrete...hmmm? Only $25K. A bargain.
  7. You mean I don't have to warn people anymore like I do every time I put in John Wick? Lol. I bought Kubu but haven't watched it yet. How To Train Your Dragon is also one of my favorite demo scenes.

  9. Or dig a hole in your yard or a field. That's what I have planned when I work on some speakers. Either that or rent a boom lift for a weekend.
  10. The speaker is coming along nicely. And great looking veneer and finish work.
  11. Ricci's Skhorn Subwoofer & Files

    Are you doing this for the community in general or thinking of starting up Ricci's Subwoofer Emporium? Those would be some impressive though big to build, handle, ship etc.

    Geez Josh, first you mock my company and now you're releasing confidential information. Not cool!

    Are you making fun of the business I started?
  14. Ricci's Skhorn Subwoofer & Files

    You're just jealous you didn't come up with that fleecing business idea first. LOL!

    Or a wood or suspended floor. I did some tests and found that even a pair of 5/8" OSB sheets over 1/4" rubber gives quite a bit of tactile feel, much closer to a true suspended floor than concrete.
