Parts Express just did me a huge solid by giving me a bunch of free speakers. I guess they had been watching my YouTube channel and wanted to make me a brand manager. So they sent me a bunch of speakers, exciters, a few plate amplifiers, tweeters, woofers and even subwoofers. It was an awesome surprise! So a huge shout out to Parts Express and their team there.

I am posting this, to see if you guys want any individual videos or pictures of any of the products I received. Sometimes, those pictures online just do not do it justice. Or if you want me to do any specific projects with them. I am game for about anything. Here's an unboxing of everything I received:


I have a few ideas already:

1. Passive radiator Subwoofer
2. Soundbar
3. End table Subwoofer with hidden amp - maybe wireless
4. Teach Dats v2 if you guys are interested
5. Get some of the GRS speaker specs out
6. Make a bluetooth Tower speaker with a built in subwoofer.

Those are some of the ideas. I'll post a link and list of all the products I received later tonight. I already started my first build :D I couldn't help it, lol. I guess I am jsut giddy with excitement.

Awesome! That's really cool that PE does giveaways like that. I for one have spent a fortune there over the years, it's nice to see they contribute to the cause!

I couldn't agree more! I was shocked when they contacted me. I can't wait to make some of the projects. I've already been working on a dual passive radiator sub. I fired it up today, and the thing is awesome. I still need to do measurements and throw a 30hz high pass on it, before it'll be complete. But so far, I am really excited. Please let me know if there are any projects you want to see me do.

A PR sub would be cool! They are often talked about but it doesn't seem like they actually get built all that often.

I felt the same way. I wonder why that is? I know, I've run into a lot of people that do not understand how to model them, so maybe that is it. But I really love passive radiators. And with the small test I did today, I was really happy with it. Although, I'm not going to push it too hard until I get that high pass on it.

It's a great way to go for low tunes in small boxes. I think it's because of the added cost of the PRs. I've done many PR designs over the years but never actually bought parts to do it. Someday maybe!

Well maybe if you like my design, you'll finally give it a try. :grin2: I think you are right about the added cost. But it's benefits can greatly outweigh the costs. Not only the ones you mentioned, but especially for a beginner, there is a lot less of a chance to make a major mistake. And it can make your build easier.

I've been flirting with the idea of creating a tower speaker with a built-in subwoofer and some PR's, similar to Definitive Technology (minus the bipolar design). I don't know. I am a fan of Pr's I guess, lol.
