Hello dear people of /dyi/ first post here and I have some question for ya. I'm planning to build a Bass Cabinet with a 15" driver and 2 10" or 12". I was wondering if someone here could give me some advices on wich speaker chose. It needs to equal the power of the one of my guitarist, based on my estimation, he is at 106dB. Any advice? Thank you!

Nah I don't think so.

Trash talk aside, speaker choice doesn't matter too much if you don't have a power amp section that'll push them. Generally people say the higher the limit is the less efficient a speaker is. So, a 75w peak speaker will be less efficient(so not as loud) as a speaker with a peak of 50w.

There's no definitive answer on this, because it all comes down to how an individual...

Simplest option: get an LED which does this automatically. One component, done. They aren't even expensive.
More complex option: get an RGB led, drive R/G/B suitably. You can use a microcontroller to produce the dimming patterns.

Hi /diy/, coming here from /o/. I bought this decal awhile ago and was super excited when it finally came in after a month or so of waiting. When I try to take off the transfer paper the decal doesn't come off with it, it stays stuck on the notecard/backing thing. Any possible way to get this off or am I completely boned? :(

Have you tried taping it to the car while you do multi-lane drifting to eurobeat and seeing if that helps?
>>
>>931103
you're going to have to peel back at the hardest angle you can, almost 180 degrees while using a ruler or something to keep the transfer paper flat. its a fucking pain in the dick. I'd be mad as fuck, either they used a shitty transfer paper or the wrong type of vinyl, because automotive vinyl is not very sticky.
>>
>>931120
Yeah, I'm not the only one who waited forever for one either. 3 or 4 other people are having the same problem right now. You think i could use a credit card like you would normally do trying to get it on an actual surface to get it to stick to the transfer paper if that doesn't work?

Anyone oxidized wood here? My wife wants furniture like pic related, but I have all the tools and saws needed to make them myself. Saving a few hundred dollars per piece and picking up an old hobby sounds good to me.

Anyway, we've got some steel wool in a jar with vinegar sitting right now, but I'm wondering if any of you have experience or tips that could come in handy.

Wood finishing general I guess?

Use a sponge brush. Apply it uniformly and liberally. After a few minutes wipe it off with a paper towel so it finishes uniformly. Flat surfaces that collect the vinegar can get darker than vertical surface that drain.

Most importantly test it on scrap pieces of wood from your project. I made a coffee table out of some cheap 2x10 d.fir surfaced perfectly smooth and after three or four applications it was a deep rich ebony like color.

Maple goes to a maximum of light grey while mahogany will go jet black.

Vinegar and steel wool is an order of magnitude cheaper and just as effective

Well, first you need to lie on your side.

Then you need a set of "curtain lock" picks.

They're annoyingly expensive. Apparently once you have the tool it's exactly the same as SPPing a tumbler lock.

The speakers need amplified to work
You could build a small amp for it easily enough

As the other anon said, you need an operational amplifier, a protoboard, a potenciometer, some resistors and capacitos.search it in google, it is not hard to do, you only need time.

Buy a PAM8403 board and put it inside one speaker. They run off 5v and put out a lot of juice.

I have bought a city-apartment and it is a ground-level flat. It has also an exit to the "Lichthof", which is a tiny place, like a big chimney. It gives a little light and air circulation for the "smelly rooms" of apartments (kitchen and toilet).
How could I make it brighter, maybe a tiny garden? Or white walls?

>How could I make it brighter
paint all walls white will help a little, also install floodlights

the thing is you should get a fan to blow into the place, thus forcing the airflow to be constantly going up and out the top, otherwise it will smell like shit

Put in a sun tunnel.

So, no tennants below you? Put a reflective surface outside the window at an angle to direct light shining down the shaft into your apartment.

got a chinese 3040 CNC machine and am trying to enable spindle control from software. the vfd board is very chinese and very not documented. the parallel port board has no connection to the pwm output, and the vfd has no connections for pwm, but does have an AVI connector. am i correct in assuming that pwm can drive the AVI with no intermediary conditioning, or will i have to put the pwm through a low pass filter to convert it to a true analog signal before connecting to the vfd?

pic related, it's the control box face for the jdfd-s5 that drives the spindle.

Been thinking about buying one. I have seen several things on here about some of the boards being shit.
I found this UK site that ships to the US. If I do buy one, I think I may end up buying boards from these folks.

I work at a pawn shop, and we're having a 50% off tool sale today. I have my pick of the litter before it officially kicks off.

What all should I invest in? So far, I have a jigsaw, a couple of sanders, and a sawzall. There is a drill press, band saw, and a big compressor, each under $50. What are some essential tools for furniture making? I've done some light stuff, but want to get into bigger and more intricate pieces.

You have told us exactly nothing. Its like saying "I work at a used car dealership and they having a 50% off sale. The have cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, what should I buy?"

If you buy a shit tool you will hate it and it will slow you down. You will have to fix mistakes that wouldn't happen otherwise. A shitty Taiwanese drill press, for example, will probably have bad runout, no power and a shitty chuck. If its a nicer machine it could be well worth getting. But if you don't tell us things like Make/Model/Country of Origin we cant tell you a fucking thing.

Sometimes its better to have no tool then a shitty tool. I'd rather use a good hand drill then a garbage drill press. I've rather have to scribe a line and cut a board by hand then use a shit table saw.

I still haven't figure it out if it was the capacitor, or if the motor coil just burned

how can I diagnose a bad capacitor using only a cheap multimeter?

Put a charge across the terminals.
Disconnect power source.

If the motor sits there buzzing loudly suspect the capacitor. If nothing at all check windings for continuity. Check the pressure switch wile you are at it.

>>930282
What kind of pump is it? If it is an in-well submersible pump, check the electrical wire that runs down to the motor for wear and tear. They tend to vibrate on anything they touch and short out eventually when the insulation is worn off. "Torque Arrestor" can help stop the twisting motion. I have like 3-4 on mine. However, the pump motor uses so much electric that the wires can actually move a fraction of an inch, especially if they are in a conduit pipe anywhere. This too can short them out by rubbing the...
