Steph's approach to sound
« on: May 03, 2020, 12:48:17 pm »

My wife's approach to not going insane while sheltering is to start a vegetable garden. So, today when I walked out to her garden patch to get a measurement for fencing material, she asked "how do you like my speaker?". This is what I saw, a turned over spreader with a JBL Charge III setting in it, pointing toward her garden. I am going to run a cord and place a DBR on a stick for her, but this did make me laugh.

Crap, I meant to post this in the basement. How do I move it?

Hell no.  Find the focal point in that hopper and rig up a way to suspend the bluetooth speaker there.  Cassegrain feed like a satellite uplink or parabolic mic on the stadium sidelines...  Save the DBR for later when she needs to use the spreader and wants music at the same time.  You can be a hero TWICE. ;)

Also you married a smart lady, using an acoustic solution to an acoustic problem.

My Gardener wife just saw that pic and was like "Genius!  I am SO doing that!"

And no, i didn't have to explain to her what it was....  :)

I've got some old 2441's that will happily peel paint off an old barn.... :o
And, if you can afford SoundBeams, you can afford a groundskeeper... ;D
