    Tube sub with a twist

    Capsuleri asked me if I'd be interested in doing a tube sub with him. Anxious to try my hand at one, I agreed.

    ETF Mic vs Radio Shack SPL Meter

    As promised, I compared the calibrated ETF mic and pre-amp against the RS SPL meter. I had already done the LF mod to the RS meter, so unless you've done the same, disregard the LF. All samples were taken with both mics at about 1 meter and pointing directly at the speaker. The line out from the...
