09:40 Electricguy would have looked better with straight tracks :P
09:46 Lt_Lemming straight tracks is actually harder to do and takes more space up
09:46 Electricguy well, you still got that fat ass IC sticking down.. so there is plenty of room for straight tracks :P
09:49 Lt_Lemming there are other things to go around that IC, including a bunch more IC's

15:18 * Experimentonomen plays some loud music to welcome the weekend
15:18 Electricguy yay
15:19 Electricguy i found some CDs i burned when i was like 12-13 that i'm listening to XD
15:19 Electricguy i'm amazed over how damn tolerant DJ CD decks are to scratchy CDs :P
15:20 Experimentonomen i test listened the briklin and B&W DM5 speakers, the DM5's did sound better, the briklins were a bit sharp in the highs, and the guy  in that department said they were rolling a bit on the bass
15:21 Electricguy mkay
15:21 Electricguy yeah the briklin's we got in the garage got a very sharp treble too
15:22 Experimentonomen and they do indeed take a bit of power to drive
15:22 Experimentonomen the DM5's for beeing so small
15:22 Electricguy lol okey :P
15:22 Experimentonomen i cranked just one channel and it was enuf to dim the lights on the amp to like half brightness
15:23 Electricguy LOL :P
15:25 Experimentonomen and those DM5's for their size are uber heavy!!
15:27 Electricguy lol yeah.. good speakers are heavy :P
15:28 Electricguy the Cerwin's i got are about 35kg a piece.. XD
15:28 Electricguy and they are not all that big
15:28 Electricguy but DAAAMN heavy
15:29 Experimentonomen but ur cerwins are like 3x the size of tthem DM5's
15:31 Electricguy 65cm high, 34cm wide and 28cm deep
15:31 Electricguy with 10" woofs
15:32 Experimentonomen the DM5's has a 6" woof
15:32 Electricguy oki
15:33 Experimentonomen http://verkopen.marktplaats.nl/photopopup/553080324/1
15:33 BotSteve Title: De Plek om Nieuwe en Tweedehands spullen te kopen en verkopen
15:34 Electricguy weird looking speakers :P
15:34 Experimentonomen http://audio-tv-foto.marktplaats.nl/luidsprekers/553080324-bower-and-wilkins-vintage-b-w-dm5.html <-- if the first linkie doesent work
15:34 BotSteve Title: Marktplaats.nl > Bower and Wilkins vintage B&W DM5 - Audio, Tv en Foto - Luidsprekers
15:34 Electricguy and pretty fat surround on the woofers
15:34 Experimentonomen they can pump quite a bit of air for their size
15:34 Electricguy hehehe yeah :P
15:35 Electricguy 10-25Watts :P
15:35 Experimentonomen but one needs some glue, someone had either stepped on or put something against the surround, ripping part of the joint between the cone and surround
15:35 Electricguy ah ok
15:35 Electricguy kontaktlim is the shit for that job
15:36 Electricguy these should be easy to drive.. 6.8Watts and you get a 95dB sound pressure
15:37 Experimentonomen we do not have the front covers for them though
15:37 Electricguy darn
15:38 Experimentonomen but they should still be worth around 100 euros or more
15:39 Electricguy yeah
15:39 Electricguy COOL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMbHi6kchfU
15:39 BotSteve Title: happy wheels in 50 000 dominoes! - YouTube
15:40 Electricguy B&W is faaaaar from crap
15:42 Experimentonomen but then again these seem to be some budget model
15:43 Electricguy well, B&W use to make BIG speakers
15:43 Electricguy so possibly
15:45 Experimentonomen i think it was the nautilus speakers that put B&W on the map
15:46 Electricguy yeah
15:46 Electricguy and Klipsch have turned into something less fancy it seems
15:47 Electricguy you can buy Klipsch speakers at Elgiganten for about 6000Sek
15:49 Experimentonomen they prolly realized they have to go consumer in order to sell enuf to stay alive
15:49 Electricguy hehe yeah
15:49 Electricguy instead of just audiophile horns that cost more than a new car :P
15:50 Experimentonomen altec lansing sold their brand name to some chinese company, hence why their stuff is all shit nowdays
15:50 Experimentonomen the real "altec lansing" is still around though under another name, something with new sound or something
15:50 Electricguy it's not THAT shitty. it's one of the better brands when it comes to portable audio systems
15:51 Electricguy but it's not the same as it was before
15:51 Experimentonomen but the altec lansing stuff sold today are not made by the actual altec lansing company
15:51 Electricguy nope
15:52 Electricguy the altec lansing Orbit is the best sounding portable speaker i have ever heard
15:52 Electricguy it's INSANE to be like a 1.5" driver
15:52 Experimentonomen hmm
15:53 Electricguy the altec lansing IMT800 looks weird. but plays EXTREMELY loud for it's size
15:53 Electricguy and it sounds pretty darn good
15:53 wannabe|tgg joined ##thegeekgroup
15:53 Electricguy they have really nailed it when it comes to performance
15:53 Electricguy but it's not really what it was in the old days :P
15:54 Experimentonomen http://www.realsound.se/audio/web.php?c=7&amp;lang=eng <-- i think this is the real actual genuine altec lansing company
15:54 BotSteve Title: REALSOUND.SE
15:54 Electricguy yeah it seems like it
15:54 Electricguy damn.. those magnets XD
15:55 Experimentonomen why they sold the "altec lansing" name to some generic chinese manufacturer i dunno
15:55 Electricguy no idea
15:55 Electricguy ooh.. the drivers on that site
15:55 Electricguy they are coaxial huh?
15:55 Electricguy with a hornloaded tweeter in the center
15:56 Experimentonomen i think those are coaxial drivers, vintage ones
15:56 Electricguy looks damn cool :P
15:56 Electricguy lol.. it even says coaxial.. XD

19:45 Electricguy lol :P
19:46 Electricguy it was a wreck sadly
19:46 Electricguy i have had 2 of these
19:46 Electricguy both with the same problem
19:46 Electricguy like ALL of the SLT286's
19:46 Damianz EG doesn't sound very french
19:46 Electricguy dead RTC battery
19:46 Electricguy EG = short for Electricguy.. Electricguy is Swedish :)
19:47 Damianz <Electricguy> whats up fellow french geek? :P < Implies french :P

19:48 Damianz That's a pretty cool box actually
19:48 Electricguy thanks :)

19:48 mashpriborintorg here some samples of bad backup battery damages : http://www.flickr.com/photos/64683169@N00/4621443374/in/photostream/
19:48 Electricguy instead of having to hook up ALL that stuff every time
19:48 BotSteve Title: Rusty pcb 3 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
19:48 Electricguy i basically put all the commonly used stuff in a console.. XD
19:50 Damianz I really need to get into electronics moar
19:50 Electricguy ouch mashpriborintorg
19:50 mashpriborintorg needless no say it was a complete loss
19:51 Electricguy the compaq SLT286 don't have leaking batteries though. but the battery is put in the RTC IC.. and that battery dies... so you have to boot the computer with a setup floppy every time. (yes, it requires a setup disk to access BIOS)
19:51 Electricguy ALL SLT286 got the same problem sadly :/
19:51 Electricguy thats why they are so cheap on ebay
19:52 Seroster electricguy, ya like plastic padding?
19:52 Electricguy not really
