    I Googled on "Jurassic Lunch" and got a ton of links to purchase high quality lunchboxes and thermos kits. [​IMG]

    Where to find this CD? I hear lots of folks talking about it being a great CD for sub testing/demoing.

    Thanks.

    Ahhhhh, that explains a lot. Like, why I couldn't find it. :b

    Is there a non-embarassing way to say "Duh, I'm an idiot?" [​IMG]

    Thanks guys. [​IMG]

    Be very careful with that track as it contains some very loud 5 hz bass that has the potential to do a lot of damage to speakers if you're not responsible.

    The "Jurrasic Lunch" track has frequencies down to 5Hz! There aren't any subs out there that can produce this?

    Playing a ported sub below it's tuning frequency can toast the woofer quick.

    I'd hate to fry my new PB2+ sub. How do you play such a track? [​IMG]

    How do you play such a track? You don't. Your sub will try to play it, but you probably won't hear it.
    Try getting a Bag End sub. They're "rated" down to 8hz. if you use the ELF module.

    You can also simply download the NCH Test Tone generator and this will create sine-waves and save them as .WAV files. Simply burn to a CD and you have your own test-tracks.

    Hey, now that is too cool. [​IMG][​IMG] Thanks, Bob.

    So, I take it all the tracks on this CD are "specially mastered" or something so the CD can be used as a Demo-Type disc?

    I bought The Great Fantasy Adventure Album CD.

    I also bought The Big Picture CD (LINK)

    It's got lots of soundtracks and effects as well. Should be a blast. Literally. [​IMG]

    The Big Picture is also available as DTS CD. Excellent sonics.

    I just wanted to say that the Tone Generator program is the greatest thing since sliced bread! I've been looking for something like this for a long time!

    Any tone. Sine, Saw, whatever. Even saves as a .wav file in a length determined by you! Awesome.

    Making a CD with 120-second clips of 20Hz - 120Hz. Will go over well with the neighbors. [​IMG]

    Side note: 10KHz thru the tiny speakers in the laptop is not a good idea. At all.

    Thanks Bob. I'm learning a lot from this place...came here thinking I knew a bit, then find out I do....a real LITTLE bit. Hehehehe.

    And here I thought I was pretty cool b/c I put my Radio Shack db meter on a tripod and my friends think I'm "such a scientist."

    Wait till I pop this "room equalization" quest on them. [​IMG]

    Off to make a label for the CD. Forgot to do that. :b [​IMG]
