    I would have a very hard time making that without wearing gloves!

    Thanks Dennis as this explains a lot. Honestly, I had read this several times, but I now have a better understanding thanks to you. X-over design is fascinating, but can also get very complex rather quickly. Are there any books of reference that you recommend that I could get my hands on regarding X-over/loudspeaker design? Many years ago I looked at Vance Dickanson's book, but it was way over my head. Perhaps, a more watered down version of some sorts would suffice? Thanks, once again Dennis!


    Cheers,

    Phil

    FWIW clicking on the ad since 9am still brings nothing up, just that the sale is supposed to have started at 9am....maybe that's an indication they're already out of stock?

    My Audiobahn car amps (chrome finish) also came with white gloves :cool:

    LOL!

    Yeah, every now and then if I touch a paper bag a certain way, I kind of get that odd feeling too. Didn't know that was "a thing".

    But, ONLY paper bags for me, not cardboard or anything else.

    Well, DUH!
    What is wrong with newegg! Don't they know that Eastern standard time is the default for the US?:p
    Works fine for me now that it's after 9 o'clock Pacific time! I did sign up for a flash sale alerts. Not sure if that is required to see and buy flash sale items.

    Paper bags are definitely the worst. Something about the dryness and texture. My dad was like that a little too. Boxes are unpleasant too, but paper bags... *shudder*

    Says in stock -- and can order -- it alerted me to order

    Strange. Chalkboards don't bother me a bit, but stocking like materials get me. Just thinking about it can make me shudder. It makes me wonder the "why" of that. Must be some kind of evolutionary thing.

    If my hands are dry I hate handling paper.
