  • Erin's Audio Corner (my new site/YouTube page)

    Many of you know that I used to do speaker/driver testing for a number of years for DIYMA before moving on to creating my own site (medleysmusings-now defunct). I took the last couple years off due to family/personal reasons. But I'm gearing back up to do something big, at least for me. I’ve been itching to change things up and move my review format to YouTube and also expand out of raw driver testing and instead provide a wider range of information. So, that's what I'm doing.

    I have started a new site here:
    https://www.erinsaudiocorner.com/

    The core of my efforts will focus on product reviews and tutorials (i.e., how to use a DSP, how to tune, what to listen for, etc) along with some other miscellaneous things. I will continue to provide objective data when I can/where it makes sense and I plan to do that as a supplement to the YouTube format; providing the data via a new website. I have a long list of ideas that I’ve collected over years. I think I have a few ideas for my reviews you all will really dig.


    I have created a Facebook Group page which I'll use to update everyone on status of a review or just general stuff I'm working on for those who want to follow it. Here’s the link:
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/607627396679113/


    To be entirely transparent, I hope to be ad-driven at some point and also do some affiliate marketing (Parts-Express being one of them) so I can use some of the advertising revenue toward purchasing new test equipment and products to test/review. I don’t see me ever actually making money; breaking even would be nice. I’ve already sunk nearly a grand in to what I need to get going. In order to get to the point where I can monetize videos through YouTube, however, I’ll need to hit 1k subscribers, and some crazy number of hours viewed per month. So, I ask you all, if you are interested in any of the stuff I’ve done in the past or you just want to support what I’m doing, go ahead to my YouTube page and click the subscribe button. I don’t have anything out there at this moment in the way of reviews but I’m already working on some really, really cool stuff. And if you are interested in the items I review in the future, feel free to click any links I provide to my affiliate advertisers so I can get a small percentage of the purchase fee (hey, you were gonna buy it anyway). All that helps me keep this thing rolling and keep me from going in debt in the process.


    Here’s a link to my YouTube page:
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCW_..._as=subscriber


    And that’s it… I just ask you to bear with me. I’m not a video editor so I don’t expect to knock this stuff out of the park my first few attempts. But over time, with your feedback, I will hopefully improve the final product and provide an entertaining and educational set of videos.

    Thanks,
    Erin

    Hey man - wishing you luck here! I haven't seen your work before, but I did click your web link for your old page. I suppose it's run out of it's hosting contract? This doesn't quite look like a speaker building and testing data page...

      Yep, the old site is long gone. The server I was on went away. I plan to use wayback to go get everything back and host it on my new site (erinsaudiocorner.com; which isn't live yet).

        Hey Erin, good to see you here. Always enjoyed your efforts on DIYMA. Still have a pair of DIYMA 12's waiting for a project.

            Subcribed! Take a look at other folks doing similar things to what you want to do. Only in that you can figure out how you can carve out a niche.

            I can’t wait it see your content.

                Just thought I'd give this a little update...

                I finally got started on the site. Have only had time to get one of my old reviews brought over to the new site so far (the Kef Q100 drive unit). It’s gonna take a while to get all the others moved but it’s a start.

                After wavering a bit on what to use for measurement hardware/software, I have decided to go back to using Klippel products. I plan to do what I did before which was provide standard data such as impedance, FR, Distortion, Compression, linear xmax, etc. The sweet thing is... this time I'll be using a laser to more accurately measure T/S parameters and notably linear excursion; something too many manufacturers spec incorrectly. I am currently awaiting the final quote from Klippel, though I fear seeing the bill. LOL. I have toiled over creating a gofundme and as much as I hate to appear needy, in order to do what I want to do I may need to do so. But we shall see what the final bill is.

                I have also started writing up scripts in Matlab using some of the data available here that I will use to create graphs in the way that I deem most useful (some of the Klippel default outputs in the past were not up to my standard). You can see a couple examples of what I'll be providing below (I used some loudspeaker data posted on another forum).

                        It’s cool to see you back again. I enjoyed your contributions on DIYMA. I think I even bought a set of scanspeak beryllium tweeters from you several years back that I am still trying to find the perfect project for. I can’t remember, are you an engineer? I remember always thinking you approached everything from a very logical, matter of fact perspective which I appreciate. -Trevor

                          Hey, man. Yea, I think you did... as part of the group buy? I actually use those in my new car now. Great tweeters!

                          I am an engineer. BS in Aerospace Engineering. I work in missile defense. My day-job is as an analyst for a defense simulation model so over the years I've kind of "trained" myself to go through things systematically and look for errors. The problem, though, is I am waaaay ADHD so it's like I'm constantly fighting my brain from getting sidetracked. That's both good and bad often have to make myself notes as I'm working on a project so I can remember how I got to the rabbit hole I am in. LOL
