Re: Update on the laser light room tweak.

I have been experimenting with various laser frequencies with inconclusive results. But I think that I am on to something big. Or maybe I should say I am on to a couple of things big. First I started experimenting with positive room pressure and found that the increased density of the atmosphere had a positive effect on the speed of the sound. This is backed up by physics, the speed of sound increases with the density of the tranfer medium. Much faster bass. Second I found that using a noble gas provided a much purer sound do to the fact that any of the noble gasses did not react with the sound leaving it in a pure state.

On the other hand, the speed of sound in the room should be irrelevant since all of the sound, from millisecond to millisecond, will have the same speed in the room. Thus, the listener should not hear a "faster bass" -- at least not due to a change in speed of sound.

It's a bummer, but changes in barometric pressure do not alter the speed of sound.

The speed of sound in gases increases roughly as the square root of temperature, but is nearly independent of pressure or density for a given gas.

Maybe you are warming the room up.

Re: Update on the laser light room tweak.

So pressure has no effect? Lets take pressure to one extreme. Zero pressure. A vacuum. How does that affect sound? So if zero pressure prevents sound transfer, then the converse must be true. Infinite pressure produces infinite speed. And yes increasing pressure also increases temperature. Something about PVT relationship.
Where are these rational arguments when it comes to everyother stupid idea?

Now that I think about it, a reduction in room pressure should produce faster bass. The reduction in pressure will reduce the resistence against the driver allowing it to start and stop quicker thus producing faster bass.

If you don't mind too much, can I point out you just contradicted your initial statement that increasing the pressure in the room produced faster bass?

Also, not sure I go along with your detective work since a reduction of pressure in the room should allow greater woofer extension - i.e., the woofer stops less quickly during outward motion. Less quickly during inward motion as well if one assumes the internal speaker pressure equalizes with the external pressure in the room.

Any change of the pressure may decide how far the sound waves travel, but never how fast (or slow)

Please explain to me what you think happens to woofer loading when air pressure changes.

My gear consists of a 10 year old Kenwood receiver driving a pair of DIY two way speakers,20 year old Technics CD player,a DIY active crossover at 80 Hz feeding a NAD amp that drives a 12 inch woofer in a DIY ported box.

The problem with moving on is that Jeffy insists on wandering around audio boards, deliberately interfering with more or less anyone's discussion, and constantly providing references to his "chips" and his little bags of rocks, clocks, whatever.

If he would simply stop interfering, which is obviously half for lulz and half for sales purposes, then he wouldn't be so objectionable, but rather, he insists on polluting the entire landscape with a whole host of fantasy reasonings like his "how the intellegent chip works", or the "teleport tweak" routine.
