this is where it gets crazy, I just sent a 90 pound shipment to Ngan and the cost was $230 using fedex great rates. This was nearly double the $130 I was quoted for my initial guess of 120 pounds so I started asking questions. Turns out there is currently a price break at 110 pounds so adding 20 pounds of "weight" dropped the shipment cost to $118. I asked if I could just claim 110 pounds and ship 90 and they replied my rate would be declined and I would be charged full price at 90 pounds which is like $1800. This meany I needed to start throwing weight into the box and a pair of the 1dB speakerformers was part of that weight. I figured some would say the fix was in since the units are already in Hong Kong so I hit up random again and Jason gets to see if they go to 11.
I must say that jason is one fine looking guy so shoot him a congrats if you see him floating around the interwebs and tell him to send me his address.
Ok... poor play on words. I just updated the Speakerformer page with some more fake news on why you need them. I also added a "Rshunt" calculator and two new tapers. One is a middling version that does -6 to -15.5dB and an "I don't know what I need" version that does from -1 to -20dB in 1dB steps.
Up for grabs is a pair of the 1dB per step versions pictured above just wash your hands for 20 seconds and leave a comment with your name or some sort of identification and random.org will pic a winner in a week.
