    Breaking in an 18" subwoofer questions

    Didn't read the comments Break in refers to a process, not a step. Your sub will loosen during use, it's not a separate step you need to undergo prior to installing it. The only time you'd really need to go to any length to break in a sub is if you have multiples in a given enclosure with shared airspace and are reconing/replacing one of them. Aside from that, toss the fuckers in and let 'em go

    Proper password practices

    Great info, much appreciated! Time to get to work
  3. You know when you get something from Amazon and they're packed in an absurdly large box? It's not just your product, but the products around them
  4. I've been about growing paranoid with passwords lately. Seems like you always hear of a hack for this or that every week. Here's my problem: I try to have different passwords for stuff, but I can only remember so many. Especially on those sites I only use a few times a year. It's enough to make my head spin. What's the most secure way to store them? I mean, obviously digital anything is prone to being hacked. Pen and paper? Is there a secure way to store them digitally? paper gets lost, wet, etc What about password generation? Right now, my passwords are kinda derivatives of one another to make it easier to remember. Some sort of random number generator would be ideal, would eliminate the possibility of figuring out my other passwords through some sort of machine learning. But again, that comes with the caveat of having some way to store them. No way in hell I'd be able to remember 80-100 strings of different characters

    ** VM-1 & OM-1 **

    Well, it depends on what you want to measure Generally you'll want to attach the leads closest to the point you want to know the value of, whether it be your alternator, amp, battery, head unit, etc etc.
  6. Lets suppose you're working on a project and need CA activator but you for one reason or another don't have any. I just messed around with some alterantives 1. Baking soda. Just the plain powder stuff you get at the store. Sprinkle it on there liberally. Pros: Works well, mixed reports that it adds structural strength to the glue Cons: Messy 2. Baking soda + water Pros: Less messy than the powder stuff, but requires use of a spray bottle Cons: Takes longer than plain baking soda. Hardening starts in minutes rather than seconds 3. Denatured alcohol (ethanol?) Pros: Least messy, evaporates quickly Cons: Seems to have been hit or miss in my testing. Takes a very liberal application. high risk of 'blooming' 4** denatured alcohol would not dissolve baking soda. A 30/70 mix of alcohol and water to dissolve the baking soda allowed a small amount to dissolve, but seemed to work no better than water+baking soda due to a long evaporation time Hope this helps someone
  7. Little plug for a friend of a friend who just started
  8. Little dietary question for y'all Traditionally I've lived a more sedentary lifestyle. As of recent, been trying to change that. Been doing the 'Keto' diet since october(ish) of last year. Worked well for that lifestyle. Even lost a small amount of weight on it. But being that it's damn near carbless, doesn't on paper work well for things like weight lifting which require glucose. So, has anyone tried weight lifting doing both keto and without? Was there any notable difference between the two? I ask because it's kind of a pain in the ass to get the whole ketogenic process started once off it.
  9. That's wild Wonder what the noise reduction is. I know there are a lot of variables, but is there an estimated [email protected] reduction that's expected to be offered?
  10. Getting a shit grade because of a shit instructor I hate to be the guy that blames the teacher. But I'm going to be that guy. Dude never had clear expectations on either written assignments or tests. And his lectures were about incomprehensible. Think: Power point in paragraph format, lots of typos throughout, and he slow mumbled the entire time. Bahhhhh
  11. Man it's weird. This guy is an absolute wizard at photoshop. But take one step outside that program and he's hilariously lost. I don't get how that's possible
  12. Those look nice. Curious decision to step away from the dual magnet design. Are these still the SMD style dual coil, with 2 individual winding in 2 gaps?
