    Hey guys, just a pet peeve of mine, and no hard feelings please, but here goes,

    bass = the lower octaves in the audio world !

    base = 3 square cushions on a ball field i.e. :
    first BASE, second BASE, third BASE ! And before anyone goes there, home is home plate, not home base.

    bass = also a fish, but we rarely talk about fish around here, so we pretty much know that bass means BASS !

    It's all good.......

    I think your pet peeve is baseless. I think you have a bass bias. To put it into Seinfeld term, you are the opposite of a high talker, which you would think would be a low talker, but in your case it's a bass talker.[​IMG]

    Tim,
    Actually you are correct. I am a bass talker, but not a low talker. I have a feeling this thread will end up being alot like a Seinfeld episode.

    It's acutally "allot" according my Word spell checker, but what does Bill Gates really know? Also, I have a question. If you were to compare one subwoofer with another, would that be considered a bass tournament? This thread is starting be smell kinda fishy!![​IMG]

    It is "a lot" as in a large quatity, a large amount. "Allot" means to distribute.

    LOL!!! Thats nothing.

    I hear people call center channels = MIDRANGES, subwoofers = A BASS, normal speakers (like a bookshelf speaker) = A TREBLE, and so on.

    Grrrr....

    Tasmania, lovely place pity about the two heads though[​IMG]

    Audio prices are much better these days, although still expensive compared to the US.

    Sydney, great place to visit, very expensive to live there and property has gone through the roof.

    Ok... If we are starting in on pet peeves and grammar corrections, let's talk abbreviations!

    When someone travels 1 mile we abbreviate 1 mi. When that same person travels 10 miles we abbreviate 10 mi.

    We don't write 10 mis. or 10 mi's.

    When discussing Sound Pressure Level we talk about relative numbers in a logarithmic scale for power known as the Decibel. We abbreviate with the annotation "dB."

    For the same reason we don't write 10 mis. or 10 mi's, we abbreviate 1 Decibel as 1dB, and 10 Decibels as 10dB. There is no need for the S!!! In fact it is incorrect notation. To be perfectly clear technical texts should specify at the begining of a paper or throughout what scale they are using. In our world of home theater, most of what we discuss as readings from the Radio Shack meters are dB SPL. We should in fact be more precise in our notation of dBA or dBC when weighting is applied.

    If you want a great site to peruse if you are feeling geeky, check out HyperPhysics

    For more direct information on the origin and meaning of the Decibel, check out this link at HyperPhysics: Decibels

    I feel better now. [​IMG]

    Cheers,
