Yes before you all post or say something and cringe when you see my “temporary” setup ! <<< YESS I said TEMP setup. It’s messy, but just setup so I can function, soon to be ordering a small 8U network enclosed rack cabinet to hang on the wall. It will house all the networking gear.
HEY another addition to the family, I found a nice Hp MLg350P server on ebay for stupid cheap. So I decided to bid not expecting to win and I won! So new addition to the fleet will be here in a week.
What did I score ?
“HP ML350p Gen8: 2x Xeon 6-CORE E5-2620 @ 2GHz 128GB PC3 P420i” for 200$ SCORE !! Just need to add drives and Heat-Sinks, For some odd reason the server doesn’t come with heat’sinks so MEH..
I thought i would post some progress pics of my speakers. I’m building a new 2 way using the Iwatta Horn with a 1″ Faital Pro HFAK10 1″ Compression Driver & A 12″ Beyma 12BR70 woofer.
I have spent HOURS and hours modeling hand full’s of 12″ pro woofers and have found non that have a good FS & usable range to 30-1500+ hz. My plan is to crossover around 1050. I will be using a 4.5c’f ported curved enclosure.
Not sure if many of you have heard or seen the Blumenhofer Genuin FS 2 but this project of mine is kinda like this one. BUT MINE are Diy 🙂
Thought I would share my New Horn project. These are called Iwattas, they use a 1″ Compression Driver. I’m going to be using a 12″ woofer in a ported cabinet. the goal is designing a 2 way efficient speaker..I used to own these but sold them to a friend. I missed them so much I had to beg for them back. Now that I have them back I’m going to be building the speaker I wanted to build when I first bought these Iwattas. The woofer is going to be the Beyma – 12BR70 with a tuning of 28hz. Crossover around 1000-1300.
This first pic is what caught my attention for this build. Mine will be a little different.
I’ve been working on a little side project for my self. With all my firewalls i have played with and used I’ve always found my self watching what is going in and out & what is going on with them when im at home or out and about.
So i decided to use my spare Raspberry Pi and use it for a web browser monitoring tool. Most Firewalls these days use a Web-Browser GUI you can watch, just like the USG with all that information.
Since I was so happy with the last device that i picked up for cheap to play with it and test it. I decided to just jump on in and buy some more goodies !!
A Nice AC-Pro & USG pro 4
After a hour of research and tinkering I got the new USG Pro 4 on line & adopted to my network, It wasn’t easy as plug it in but I got it! Starting from scratch its very easy, adding to existing network is a little harder.
Installing & adapting the Ap was very easy though!
I just replaced the AP with my old one screwed the base to the ceiling plugged it in and adopted & configured WOLA !
Well, I finally did it! Never thought I would be using the USG stuff and “not” get hooked! My very first USG was the little 6×6″ guy !
After playing with this thing and seeing what it can do WELL I was hooked.
I did open it up (duh) I always open things up ! Have a look inside, see what is there! IMO not much actually ! I did like the fact there was a CPU heatsink on the CPU. Would like to see better thermal design as this thing did reach 60C..
After a week of running this guy, i started searching for more Ubiquity stuff to buy!!
