Yeah,  was just curious if there was a particular album that stands out.
There is 7 of them on  Fdio, just started listening to "Piece by Piece"

What? I didn't know she had that many albums. I have Piece by Piece. It's good.  :thumb:

Well, after lloing a bit closer,  2 of those allbums are singles, and one has 4 sons.  So I guess you'd call it 4 albums although they are all shown as albums.
In any event,  she is  good

Sorry for "hijacking" your thread Perry

That's a good article about her.  She has sure accomplished a lot.  I hadn't even heard of her before, mind you ,   this area of music is pretty   new to me.  It's funny you mention  how  you are listening to mellower tunes as you  get older,  man  5 years ago  I would have never listened to anything like this.
I have actually  noticed   that since  I built my N3's,   I have really  started listening to  a much  wider variety of music  I'm not saying I never crank up the Metallica  or Priest anymore,  but definitely a lot less often .  haha, last night I listened to "the Micheal Buble Collection",  not long ago,   that  would have never made it inside my  home !  How things change

Remember that friend that took the pic.....well, she rubbed them out.
She thought the pic looked better that way.... :roll:
I thanked her, she spent time and effort on them for me.
Wife gave a big smile when she saw them gone.....she knew.
Its nice to have friends like that, she`s a real sweetheart.

All kinds of music Guy......cept rap, that techno dance haze stuff, not much classical either, but a little.
I find myself listening to more relaxing tunes the older I get.
Katie Melua is one of my favorites.

Hi PDR and all Audio Circle members.
My listening room is crawling with wires everywhere,
it's a real spaghetti junction.
That's why my listening room is in my penthouse
where my wife as limited access. (LOL)
I have noticed that I also listen more often to relaxing music,
normal, I'm soon to be 65 years old.

I built everything in the room Guy.....QRD, panels, gear stand, bass traps.....I even built the room itself.... :lol:
It use to be my single attached garage.

The amp is a Musical Paradise MP-401.
Designed and sold by Gary Huang here in Edmonton.
Hi (Again) PDR and all Audio Circle members.
You live in Edmonton, no wonder you use a tube amplifier for heating
your ex-garage in January. (LOL)

Perry, what kind of paint did you use and how did you apply it to the magnet on the lower woofer?  I've seen some folks paint their drivers (including the coax), and am curious how people have done this without getting paint all over everywhere?  Is it a whole lot of masking tape and sprays or a careful hand with a roller/brush?

Thanks!

It was the masking tape, newspaper and semi-gloss in a can method... :D
Wasnt as difficult as I thought once I started.......maybe 10mins a side.
I thought about painting the PAudio driver before install, but the tweeter mag is already black
and it looks good as it is.

I made sure to stuff the vent hole before painting, then pulled the stuffing out with tweezers.

Hope you don't mind me asking questions even if the thread is old.

What's the trick to bend the plywood? Do you use any specific method to make it bend and stick easier?

The curved top and bottom is made from bendable plywood.
The top is 1/8" thick and the inside curve is 1/4" thick.
The 1/4" has a layer of rubber sandwiched between the plys.
Its incredible stuff, will bend almost anyway you want.
I bought it from Windsor Plywood here in Sherwood Park Alberta.
It was about $50 a 4x8 sheet.

Thanks Marvin - completely missed that. Thought you had to apply steam or something.
