A Highly Unusual Topic!
@flatbackround. Not well known, but true: Ambergris is found in the s**t of sperm whales. Makes you wonder who thought of adding it to perfumes.@baclagg.: I'm with you, but more in the single malt scotch club. It's amazing how even a single applic...

Why perfect speakers dont exist the truth revealed
I know nothing about speaker design, so didn't really follow the concrete wall idea. Is the thought just that a speaker should be in a rigid non-resonant enclosure? If so, it sounds like a quick and easy backyard project for a DIYer (not me). Just...
