I have finally finished one of my biggest woodworking projects. 4 x "Lab 12" horn loaded subwoofers. These subwoofers have been a time consuming and tiresome project. All hand crafted and built by me. They are one of the higher efficiency subwoofers you can build/buy/create today. It uses a technology that many stopped using several years ago due to the advent of monster amplifiers and push to make cabinets as cheap as possible (i.e. 18 & 21 inch front loaded designs)
I am now working on a new endeavor that promises to be an equal challenge. Building my first Line Array… from scratch.
I am starting by designing an acoustical wave guide. Due to patent restrictions, these waveguides are not available (ahem, in the US). So as not to spend 200+$ on a plastic or aluminum waveguide, I will be “printing” my own out of plastic. I plan on creating a Mendel Max style 3D printer to be housed at Club Cyberia Maker Space in Indianapolis to achieve this.
Once the waveguides have been tested to my satisfaction, then I plan on building a 12” 2-way line array consisting of 8 cabinets (4 on each side) to complement the Lab 12 subwoofers.
Wish me luck!
I have finally broke down and got a webserver VPS service instead of hosting on my cable modem. After some tinkering, I am able to get things up and running… mostly. I have yet to move over e-mail as the postfix configuration I wish to put in place should have some spam filters in it.
This VPS will also include the ClubCyberia Maker Space site as well. I will update you all as things progress. :-)

On the eve of our first meeting, a tragedy has happened half way around the world. Our prayers go out to everyone in Japan that was affected by the earthquake and subsequent Tsunami.
I would like to personally welcome all of the new Club Cyberia group members on Facebook.
As well as others who have contacted me via e-mail.
I have decided today to hold our first meeting at Mo'Joe Coffee house on 222 W. Michigan Street. Indianapolis, IN 46204. In addition to the Mo'Joe Live meeting, I am also got approval to use the hackerspace.org Phone Bridge!
Visit: http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/Call-in for the connection info.
If all else fails, I will attempt to be on irc.freenode.net in #clubcyberia if there is a reliable Internet connection.
Things I will need soon:
#1 I am currently utilizing my personal Internet connection to host the clubcyberia.com (and .org) domains. I will be looking into the possibility of virtual hosting soon. As such, I will require more qualified web-admin’s to assist in making the site what it should be…
#2 I currently have a wiki development site that I am working on, however it is not complete. If you are interested in assisting in website content development, Please contact me and let me know ASAP.
Most of the other items will be covered at the meeting. I will try and get a agenda together to post by Wednesday.
Thank you everyone for your interest in an Indianapolis HackerSpace!
