Jeff Bagby

He had been on peritoneal dialysis for years, had done well, but it was beginning to go downhill.  Jeff did well in surgery, but when he was extubated his airway collapsed, he had a respir...

Re: 7 way system ???

A crossover filter for that would be a nightmare, a 3 way is bad enough! My guess is that whatever filter he had messes up the sound more than helps it.

Re: Best value two-way bookshelf?

Re: Upcoming Excelsior Passive Four Way in 2016

Adam may have had trouble with the epoxy in his wood/aluminum laminated baffle, but he must have worked it out. That speaker was drop-dead gorgeous! I'd hate to do the crossover for your 4 way, what do you have in mind for that? It might be easiest to use an electronic crossover, but I don't know if...

Re: ZX Spectrum Build

An easy way to check if one of your woofers has the wrong polarity: place the speakers facing each other a few inches apart, and see what the bass does. If it reinforces and gets louder they are in phase, if it disappears, the they are out of phase and therefore one of them has the wrong polarity.

Re: Offical Thread - Loudspeaker Design Seminar in Kokomo

Jeff Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated what you did this weekend. It was a great experience for me, and it was really good to get to listen to the results with you. I would be proud if I could make a speaker sound as good as that one did at the end! Also, just the effort you must ha...

Re: Overnight Sensation WWTWW CC Build

What trouble did you have soldering the multistrand wire? It may be that you weren't getting all of it hot enough.

Jeff

I was on call Dec. 14 but have managed to clear it, so I am free to attend. I don't know yet if I will come in the night before and need a hotel room or can drive it in the morning. Do you know the start time? I don't recall if that was on the itinerary.
