  1. Gave the turd a bath. Again. Can't keep the bugs off this thing for more than a minute

  3. I'd think a dab of loctite would help secure it in place. But in all honesty, that shouldn't be an issue anyway
  4. We post enough of these that it may be worth it's own thread. APP anyone?
  5. Gave the 'ol turd a bath. Got tired of borderline not being able to see out the windshield through the bugs

    custom desktop speakers

    Those turned out nice! How do they sound?
  7. Why is this thread still open anyways? Waste of everyone's time
  8. "i can do anything i want with parts custom or off the shelf." Remind me why you're busy slamming a business for not putting up with your high maintenance ass instead of doing it yourself? After all.... You can do anything!
  9. Going by your previous post, you were looking to purchase secondhand molds? Body panels? for your own uses. So your solution is to go ask a business for their tools - their source of income . I guess those belonged to an employee, who has since left. So now you want to boycott a business for not helping you badger one of their previous employees, as someone who isn't even a customer of theirs. Does that sound about right?

    99% of the time it's not the sub, it's the box

    At a glance it doesn't look like it would be due to any funky loading. @Joe X helps a lot with box designs

    4th order 15 not hitting like its supposed to

    The thing is with WinISD, almost no one uses it right. It gives a prediction of a response based on an open air environment. i.e. sitting on the floor in a field. If you design something there, you need to plot cabin gain and integrate that. You'll also need to take into account where it's located in the vehicle and if any surrounding areas can contribute to cancellation or constructive interference. Regarding ports, the whole port velocity thing is garbage. Throw it out. It doesn't take into account the effects of the laminar sublayer - which is where air in the port flowing closer to the surface of the wood moves slower than it does in the middle. It also doesn't take into account the effect of port diameter vs. air velocity. A larger port will allow for a higher air velocity before any audible chuffing occurs. Seriously. More port, and a larger ported section. All of your sound output from a 4th comes from the port. Let it breathe. Conceptually, a 4th order is a ported side for output with a sealed side to control the mechanical movement of the cone. You're essentially running a 15" driver in a 2cuft ported box. Still would like a sketch of the box

    Also could you post a sketch or diagram of how everything is laid out?

    At a glance, you may want a larger ported section You'll also want to err on the side of more port area. Particularly if it's only 2" wide

    Proper password practices

    Heh. Interesting turn of events Got a spam email from someone claiming one of my old p/w was stolen and wanted an ransom. Literally listed my password in the subject line. Turns out One of the forums I'm on got hacked right before I changed everything lol
  17. 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
