I noticed a couple of nice changes in Rod's life. He may be too modest to point them out himself.

Congratulations on the Educator position with GIK!

That is a nice new avatar image!

Observantly,

good picture. Rod looks younger than me ... well younger as me if I had a beard, that is .

Congratulations to GIK, that is a major move for sure!

Well what can we say. Rod has been not only a great friend, was major help at the beginning (has it been 7 years??), but the best person I could think of for the position.
As I said yesterday:
" You know what they say about successful companies......................HAVE SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!"
Companies are not built by one persons ego, but a teams effort.

I have a whole new love for Rod now that I know he's got such a bad ass beard.

I presume that is 'manly love' as compared to 'man-love'.

The beard IS rather impressive. I hope the extra absorption doesn't affect the mix

Ditto Rod! Btw Rod, if you don't mind me asking..exactly what does an "educator" do in a company? Outside of "education" companies, I can't say I've ever heard of a "educator" position in a typical company .

Ethan,

first - thanks for the "thumbs up"....... I appreciate it.

That having been said - the following absorption coefficients are taken from Beard Testing performed at a certified testing lab (which will remain nameless):

80hz..........100hz.........125hz......160hz........200hz........250hz
0.03..........0.03...........0.05........0.08..........0.13...........0.25

Please note that the testing was performed with me mounted directly in a corner of the reverb chamber, but this was cool for me because:

1. Lying on the floor and having my edges banded was not sounding like all that great of an idea.

and

2. I am quite used to the corners because that is where the wife sends me every time she's pissed.

Did you cover the nose to minimize edge diffraction effects? Have you tried an impedance tube?

you're sure you also counted the belly absorption factor as well?

I don't remember the ASTM test number...but, I believe it was for Single objects...or something to that effect. But how else would you do it?

Folks,

Much to my regret I had to leave my position at GIK Acoustics.

My schedule is such that I just do not have the time to devote to the company, which is going to be made even worse by the fact that I am going to be tied up for the next 2 years in a project that just popped onto the scene just 2 weeks ago.

This is very unfortunate, but necessary. Glenn and I part (business) company on only the best of terms. He is though - and will remain - a personal friend.

My best to Glenn and GIK, thanks for the opportunity, I am sorry I could not make it work out.

Quite the shame but also pretty damn happy about this project you have coming up. I would have jumped on it in a second. thumbsupthumbsup

I guess this leaves the spot open!!!!!!! If any of you guys know of someone please contact me.
