Re: Why Amazon knows so much about you.

Re: Why Amazon knows so much about you.

I have not used Amazon for many years (through choice) so it does not make ME feel anything really.
But for you to make that choice, you must have had a reason?

Re: kids and computers

Not that I am paying much attention these days, but in terms of performance and cost AMD seem to be ahead of Intel ATM.

Re: Ali Bastanis OB testing & results

There is a thought, would putting the two drivers at the end of a 30cm tube give the same effect as a 15cm baffle, and would you need to have a tube to get that effect below a certain distance, and what would that distance be?

Re: Ali Bastanis OB testing & results

What were the upper frequencies like, as the curves above 13kHz look horrible for 5MR450-NDY (not that my ears go much above that, but I think Ali's do).

Re: Ali Bastanis OB testing & results

Re: Ali Bastanis OB testing & results

What I am unsure of is the eq. I don't see how you can get a flat response without bass boost which I assume there is given the size of the amps. Ali's ob's are in effect baffle-less, but I do wonder if the lossy suspension is playing a big part.
