Good deal. We've got a few Audophiles here. Another would be a damn good addition. Are you familiar with the Baron'* setup? Stock options? Get as much of that under your belt as you can. We have some unique problems with regards to the stock bass amp (with adjustment), and the compass receiver location. Some stuff in Techinfo on relocating that in the event of large sub installs.

What'* your timeline on a Bonneville and the baddest audio around?

I think that compass will be a problem with any heavy magnets near it. You could try shielding the boxes like Home Theater subs do. Anyone tried it?

EDIT: otherwise i know big metal ships have two magnets 180 apart on them for their compasses.

Ships do, as they're made of steel. Planes, which are primarily composite/aluminum/titanium, only have one. But it'* usually far out on the wing. Sheilding from a magnetic source is difficult to impossible. A magnet will induce an electric field in a copper wire/coil. Moving is usually the best/only option.

Well if you can shield id like a Home Theater speaker, enough to make the weird ways of the compass go away you'll be fine. Or you could always move the compass with some wires...

k do you have any idea on how hard that question is? Do you know anything about this stuff! cause if ya do here is your answer...A wavelength for a frequency can be determined by the formula [ w = c/f ]. Where: w is one wavelength in meters, c is the speed of light in meters per second, and f is the frequency in hertz.
i dont know if that makes any secne to ya but but thats the only way i can put it and ya made me break out the books for that... so i hope it helps ya in anyway... cause i wont be able to explain it to ya if i could be a teacher...

Cramer'* formula gives 331.45 m/* for dry air at STP; calculations made without double precision may be closer to 331.46 m/*
i got that from the net is that what you want
