回覆 (12): Losers' corner for the semi-deaf
Ben,  
 
My illness is much more serious than yours. While my 2 ways active system is no where near being optimized, I am already preparing to go 3 ways :O  
 
As feikeung said, there are many 屎弗精 here, and I am definitely one of them :-)

You meant 'Why is there a(n) (ass)hole......?.

What do you get if you cross a Frog (French Canandian) with a Chink?

Frogging crossover.... ;)  
 
Too much scratching will hurt/bleed.... yet scratching still goes on most of the time. Can't help.....

My advice, don't try crossover. It is extremely hard to play and you might get depression or kill yourself in the end......

Human can be contradictary at times. Maybe it is these kind of self-destructing acts that stopped me from having depression or jumping off building. Just like people watching a tragic movie and got relieved.  
 
Yet, the difference is my weeping is definitely going to me much longer than 2 hours...

Most of the folks here, yours truly included, are 屎弗精 anyway. The more difficult the act, the more intriguing it becomes.

屎弗痕 is definite why I fiddled with my system. Yet, sometimes, the more I scratch, the more 痕....

You are better than me, I'm being labelled as almost totally deaf. That is why I needed supertweeters and subwoofer to stimulate my hearing. And I guess I shall need hearing aids in the near future.  
BTW, how many cross overs have you tried?

A reminder, I have both super tweeter and sub too. Thou strictly speaking, my subwoofer is so small, it sound be called a "woofer" instead. As far as hearing aid goes, I got plenty already - You are definitely one of them that taught me a lot.  
 
As of now, I have tried out only one crossover. It went on for less than 20 hours and just deserted me.... simply amazing.

active crossover + multi-channel amplification + Apogee/Magnepan = 屎弗痕 = encounter of the 4th kind

Limage and Evp1312,  
 
Thanks for the kind offer. I don't know why, maybe my crossover knew I talked about it. It broke today dramatically. Call it bad luck or I deserved it.  
 
On surface, it is a hassle as I need to bring it to the shop to fix. Yet, come to think of it, there might be a message from up there.  
 
I will take a rain check trying out crossovers for now. I need to fix my piece of shit asap. If I have a spare to use, sending it to store will take forever and picking up from store will be another eternal wait. I know myself too well...  
 
Come to think of it, knowing what is good or not need time and proper knowledge of the subject. Let me see what my sick crossover can do and how much patience I have.  
 
Jeez... I do enjoy catching worms.

Ben,  
 
I have a lethal tube cross-over idling in the corner. You are welcome to try it in case you are not quite dead yet.

Ben, the loser, the low life, the semi deaf,  
 
You have real sense of humour.

Thanks guys...  
 
Too late to know the crossover trap and found out the hard way.  
 
Reason why I wanted to do this is that I fancy speakers of the 50s more and more. Drivers on ebay are dirt cheap and cabinet building scheme is accessible from internet too. Yet, the crossover always become a problem. This is why I hope to start my experiment.  
 
Did not knew this is going to be a big hole. Heck.. think from the bright side, I need my system to kill time. Now, I purpose met....  
 
Just when I thought I was low enough already, there was really no limit going down....  
 
Crappy photo to follow.

this is nothing new under the sun. it is almost sure death whenever audiophiles mess with speaker be it encloure or cross-over. but then history just repeats itself at an alarming rate though. what does it tell us? that may be many audiophiles have suicidal tendency. so may be it is not loser or semi-deaf that we have to worry about!

Hi Friends,  
 
Have been some time since I last showed up. Long story short, I have been fiddling with active crossover experiment and as always, I sucked and caught worm again.  
 
Now my setup is unbearable and the fight should take long time (before I give up). With all these nightmares happening, I might as well create this thread to warn others what not to do. Also, since many audiophiles have a self-destructing tendency, might as invite others to share their failure here.
