What are the odds that steam tech is far more viable as a main stay technology than it currently is if it was simply engineered smarter with the economic systems geared towards maintaining and developing them...(as pictured in steam punks)?

especially since steam technologies, just like hydraulics are integral to the current age, that without them, a vast number of technologies would be impossible today...

I have a two of a kind set of speakers. I met the head eng of BA at a bar and we became friends. He wanted to make a bookshelf pair of monitors but had no wood working skills so he proposed that we make two pair... one for me! He hand wound the coils, aluminum baskets, double magnets, 4" TMM with a sloped front. I siliconed tile to the inside walls and added all sorts of damping material. They weigh like 30 Lbs each. When attached to a good clean amp and a CD player with a good DA converter they are sublime. When he gave me a tour of their headquarters, I got to see Michael Jordan's personal car speakers being tested. Let me just say... he could strip paint with his cars sound system.

They sound amazing. I think I'm actually kind of amazed at how good they sound.. goes to show what high-dollar components will do for you, cause god knows I am not Amar Bose or anything.

Cheers!

Those don't look neither coaxial elements nor do they have separate tweeters...?
AEvilMike's avatar
AEvilMikeProfessional Digital Artist
No, they are full-range drivers.. they are small enough that they can reproduce the high end well enough!
soarinbolt's avatar
Do you have any vids of these in operation?
AEvilMike's avatar
AEvilMikeProfessional Digital Artist
No, not sure what you would see in a video that you wouldn't see in a photo, there aren't any blinking lights or anything ;-)
soarinbolt's avatar
Well, I'd at least see if it operates and maybe hear just a little of its sound if you got a realy good camera, but yeah, I'd have to listen to it irl...
soarinbolt's avatar
Yeah, when you mention it the driver size is 3" at max.
