I'm confused by this.  Maybe I'm a muntant--it wouldn't be the first thing,
I'm colorbling--but I don't have touble finding the location of sub-
woffers, ever.  Maybe it's an intensity thing and not phase, but....

Okay, this interests me.  I'm a computer E, which means half EE and half
comp sci, and a ham, so I find this comment *very* interesting.  Would
you *please* elaborate?  I've be very appreciative. :)

As with any language other than the one that I happened to be born
near, I only speak enough to buy beer. :)  Okay, sometimes not even
that much. :(  But, anywhere that makes beer good enough to drink
speaks at least *some* english--or so has been my experience. Of
course, I've only been to the USA(home), Canada, Germany, the Netherlands,
Austria, and Isreal.  Never had any trouble ordering beer. :)  Never
been to china. :(
