    Value!

    I don't know anyone who has an 8-track, but a friend had a Sony "Elcaset", which combined the size of an 8 track with the sound quality of the cassette!

    50th Anniversary issues of Electric Ladyland and The Beatles 'white' album out soon so maybe I need help as well...

      I remember when I was 8yr pulling an 8-track tape out across the drive-way to see how long it was. It was REALLY long! Thought that was pretty cool.

      My older sister on the other hand seemed to feel different as she chased me with some kind of weapon around the house several times until she ran out of juice.

      All I heard was screaming something about "thaAAT WAS my fav..o rite . . bea..t. le s god da.. m. .it."

      I mean who knew she liked bugs, geez! ( O.o)
      Feel free to rip my assumptions apart when wrong, or fix if close.

      Passive Radiators:
      All PR(s) Vd must at-least double all woofer(s) Vd. Calc = Sd x Xmax to get Vd for all PR(s) and all woofer(s). If all PR(s) Vd at-least double all woofer(s) Vd they'll work.
      For woofer(s) with large Xmax vs Sd, all PR(s) with Xmax at-least double all woofer(s) Xmax will work.
      A PR max weight is said to be its Mms x3

        It was amazing how much tape you could pull out of an 8 track player after a malfunction. Sometimes you'd see the tapes unreeled along the highway, swaying in the breeze. It was no mystery why someone would do that.

          Truly a “Self destruct mechanism!” Taking the tape off the middle of the reel and rewinding it to the out side? (Or was it the other way around). Who’s idea was that?

          Luckily, I missed that boat. Later, Mark

            I remember my 8 track boom box where you had to slap the top to change the song.....my parents also had a 8 track player for the car....then cassettes came out with my JVC boom box playing my radio believe me I like loud Im the man with the box that can rock the crowd walking down the street with my hard core beats while JVC vibrates the concrete. LMAO

              What I hated most about those things was that the 4 tracks meant that the songs never fit completely. It would often have to switch tracks in the middle of a song (usually your favorite one). To make things worse the engineers would add a painfully long fade out / fade in, totally ruining the song. Drove me nuts.

                Some of us started recording our own 8 tracks. After listening to some that a friend had made where he ignored the track jump and just recorded over it, I started doing that. The resulting interruption of the music with a loud ker-chunk was less annoying than the factory way. But not by much. Then there was the drag. And the squeak from plastic parts rubbing on each other. No wonder cassettes seemed like a huge improvement. The first time I took an 8 track cartridge apart to see what was going on in there, I was amazed it worked at all.

                It was pretty awesome, though, to be able to listen to whatever you wanted to in your car.
