An audiophile was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess".

He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.

The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week." The audiophile took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.

The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you and do ANYTHING you want." Again the audiophile took the
frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.

Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, that I'll stay with you for a week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"

The audiophile said, "Look I'm an audiophile. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool."

I think you mean polarity inverted - and even then both speakers would need to be polarity inverted and possess flat response down to very close to DC (like one cycle per day or 0.0000116 Hz) and enormous excursion potential (many hundreds of feet) and playing a recording of a wind facing the microphone array to create the effect shown. With this system you could "play back" barometric pressure changes in the range of weather events.

I win.  :lol:

Nerdier than thou, I am.
