    Re: Semi O.T. - "For the last time, it's not a b.o.m.b!"

    I have a friend who related why this is not an entirely humorous topic. He tried to fly out with a set of updated crossovers to install in a pair of Duntech Sovereigns which weigh 400 lbs apiece (why the need to update in the field instead being shipped back to Duntech). The crossovers are size of a laptop and have caps the size of soda cans. Being pre TSA days the call was left to the pilot, who took about 5 seconds to say "Not on my airplane!" The crossovers had to be shipped FedEx and the update trip rescheduled. This why I am using small caps on my black box speakers that are flying to Indiana with me. I still will probably have to bribe the TSA.

      That looks like it could blow up without being a b..b.

        The lowest possible F3 box alignment is not always the best alignment.

        Designing and building speaker projects are like playing with adult Lego Blocks for me.

            Remember, to fire an atomic bomb, you need a BUNCH a big capacitors that can give you a jolt of about 260,000 joules at over 180,000 volts. (From the book "Silverplate"-1948) That very old book tells a good high school chemistry/physics student with common sense and the same common sense as Fermi in 1943 how to build a "gun-type" uranium bomb, and the theory behind how to build an implosion plutonium bomb (if you can get Cal-Tech Berkley to sell you a sphere of about 4 kgs. of pure beryllium for $4 million dollars again!!!) and Oak Ridge, TN can provide you with weapons grade plutonium at about $2 million dollars a gram and you need 100-150 KILOGRAMS of it according to the German and Japanese scientists working on atomic bombs. The Germans abandoned their work on the atomic bomb, because the A-6 (two-stage modified V-2 or A-4) rocket couldn't come close to lifting the 4,000 Kilograms mass of an atomic bomb vs: the 2200 kilo HE warhead. The Germans switched to developing a fusion bomb which they calculated (very accurately) would weigh about 1100 kilograms. The Germans called their project Die Pflugereieger (roughly "The War-Eagle"). The ONLY mission of B-29's from England ended their research and killed all their researchers. Their lab was under a ice cliff in a fjord in Norway and they had their researchers and hostages in three passenger liners. 48 B-29 had specific targets for each of their 2000 lb. bombs. Every single bomb landed with-in 8 feet of it's aiming point. With a 2000 lb. bomb, "close 'nuf". The Amerika, the Hamberg, the Kolinsberg were sunk with no survivors. The heavy-water plant was destroyed with no survivors. The Japanese atomic bomb research facility was at...Hiroshima, at the University there.

              Yeah, it takes a lot to build an A-b---b, but one single 2700uF/250V cap connected directly across a 120V line (plugged into the wall) won't level a city block, but can throw enough shrapnell to **** off the authorities.

                Many years ago I had a car audio system that was built with removable sections. Each section had amps, source components, and processors on them. To facilitate easy removal I used 220v 3-prong plugs to handle the current (I like overkill). I had the car worked on and removed all the components for safe-keeping in a rental car... then forgot about them and they were stolen by the rental folks. I never removed the wiring from my car. I worked at an Army Post and every time my car was inspected, the guards were a bit surprised by what they saw. I had to explain every single time.

                  Lol yeah I wasn't being serious. I meant that the fat lady has sung with that pic. That's the one I was talking about that looks like it could take out a city block. Just... awesome.
