Wow, I made it this far without being a friend?, Male, 31, from Croatia

At about 1.8x my body weight at deadlift, 1.5x at squat, and 1.2 at bench as of now, while cutting. Started at nothing couple months ago. Jun 21, 2020

      I definitively needed to read more, been reading Linkwitz's site lately. What a treasure cove. Any other recommendations?

        No, but I know what I'll be doing the next few weeks, or months? I've seen one of his 4-ways that intrigued me, but I never knew where it was from! Thanks!

I do not sell loudspeakers but offer construction plans for DIY duplication. I like to share what has given me satisfaction and enjoyment." Imagine the world if more people shared this sentiment.

        Is that you with SL? That must have been great to have met him. I would like to build one of his speaker sustems, but being realistic will have to wait some years until retirement. (Edit: missing word)

        Unfortunately, he died in 2010. I too wanted to meet mr. Linkwitz :(

      Pulled the trigger. Soon all 12 seas drivers should be here, + 2 dayton sealed subs, for a 5 way active system. My speaker endgame.

        Damn, based on earlier posts, a Linkwitz design? Would love to have system with active correction for each speaker with Acourate or similar. MitchCo at Computer Audiophile wrote great guides.

        I use arta and rew to do all my work, rew generates dsp filters too. Amazing stuff.
        Yep, subs are my design but Linkwitz transformed, will be used as omni's for 15-35 Hz, the rest is lx521.4, with aditional dsp smoothing. :)
        Can't wait to do it

        Actually I'm not sure if I'm gonna Linkwitz transform them or mod them into ported, cause at those frequencies, centered around 20 Hz, it's just lfe basically.

      Paid 8 drives from falcon acoustics for lx521. Woofer (100gbp) missing. Small heart attack. Found note, "another u22 coming from warehouse"

      Linkwitz gave his last speaker the name lx521, because he found the best baffle shape on 21st of may. That also happens to be my birthday.

        I want to hear Linkwitz speakers, the 521 in particular, more than just about any hi-fi setup. Why? Because I'd actually consider saving for them.

      Just ordered 6 drivers for the top part of lx521. Still debating with myself whether to go seas or dayton for the subwoofers.

        Some ribbons/planars might do it. I don't think the baffle size is the main issue here. The direct energy from back reflections that the baffle would eat is minimal. It needs to be open back with ideally same symmetry on back as front (very little in the way of obstructions), but in this sense, yes ideal one doesn't exist, probably.

        well, the diameter should not be more than 2-3 cm. if you know of any ribbon, planar or estat like that I'm sold

        England is playing the best I've seen them in a long, long time.... maybe ever. No actually, I'm sure now... this is the best I've ever seen the English team. I'm wishing you luck but England is going to be rough. Anything can happen in football though.

        I have a 650D sitting next to me, not sure when I'll ever upgrade it. Nice Cases. I've never tried to fit a woman inside it.

        Neccessary joke about the components being my gf. She has fractal define mini.

        Yeah, humongous cases. Beautiful stuff if you have the space. :)
        I'll upgrade the case with custom loop watercooling I think :)
