    Default Duck Tape Speaker Repair

    http://www.vonslatt.com/spkhack.shtml

    I played music while applying the tape so I could correct any voice coil/magnet interference on the fly. It bloody worked! The speakers sound amazingly good with only a little cone bottoming at very high listening volumes.

    This is not why God invented duct tape. God invented humanspeakers.com for this purpose...

    Interesting fix for the garage or shop speakers,,atleast it will squeeze abit more life out of those classic EPI's.

    I guess I have built a dual subwoofer box out of cardboard when I was in college, so I can't judge. (The box even had holes in it :o)

    Dear Lord..........
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Too bad we can't edit posts...

    I like the bus, but I'm not exactly sure what is the point of some of his other stuff (like the guitar and PC). I've seen home-made RV's before like this one though: www.metamorphobus.com
