      A bigger problem would exist if you actually have gear in which to use them all.

      Text substitution shorthand from Unix, s(ubstitute)/text/with/ and the g at the end means do all of them, not just the first found.

    Working on writing a comp curve for my EARS. Can't seem to find sanctioned HD650 / 6XX EARS measurements to mimic. SBAF stock curve is off.

    My speakers measure at 0 ohms. Pretty sure all drivers are ok, and I don't see any immediate shorts on xover. Where should I look?

      Not having good speakers and/or not affording large (volume-wise) rooms typically make people hysteric about placements.. from my experience lol.

    After a week and pad swapping, Auteur is ahead of Aeolus. Aeolus more lush and exciting, but can be fatiguing. Auteur with velour easier.

      @SoupRKnowva Miata is always the answer for that. These are exciting times for car fans. chebby just blew up the $60k market with a $100k car. Audi R8 bois like, wtf. Anyone considering a P-Car gonna have second thoughts about getting shown up by a stock base model C8 everywhere all the time. C6 owner boomers in jorts are gonna be pissed cause C8 is too wacky.

      @Hands I have a different perspective. I was thinking the furry pimp coat is a good prop that can be combined with the OMG I can't believe you said that kinda humor, to boost spwaths overall cred.

      Although maybe more appropriate if not worn during a heat wave.
