We should have a multi-tiered flat tax. The IRS is an example of the government creating a problem and then hiring themselves to fix it, all on someone else’s credit card.
I wish we could all just stop being insane and not have a need to have system that we need taxes to pay for, you know? I just hate centralized systems. Nature works so well, because nature is free flowing. Nature can adapt anything to survive anywhere. Centralized systems cannot adapt to changes. Centralized systems usually collapse due to the fundamental way they function. We need just local management of local areas of people who actually know each other. I bet 99% of people have never met a single person that "represents" them in the government. So, how much do they really care about you? You think a congress member with 100's of thousands of constituents is even humanly capable of caring of that many people? It's a broken system. That BS happened after the Civil War in 1865, and was part of the war on America. Too few people ruling over too many people.

"How many people live in the average US Congressional District? Well, it all depends. As of April 1, 2010, there were 308,745,538 persons living in the 50 United States and the District of Columbia. Less the 601,723 people living in DC, there are 308,154,815 persons in the 50 states. This number, divided by 435 house seats, yields 708,376.6 persons per average Congressional District."

I've had 3 boxes that I know of this year that didn't work out well out of the about 180 or so that I've done. 1 of them wasn't confirmed, and I suspect something else happened.

The one box I truly messed up on was a JL shallow mount 4th order BP, where the JL had major noise problems, because I wasn't supposed to put it into ported, but I did another box for the customer, and I'm pretty sure he liked that one. This was earlier this year, hard to remember.

The other box failure I talked about on here, was a very high powered Skar VFX box, but that isn't really a failure quite on my part, we were experimenting a good bit, trying to nail something down that was kind of hard to nail down, a certain type of sound and overall setup. The owner and I both knew we were playing with fire, so to speak, and we stuck with it, and I wound up doing a huge flared port box with him, after we had deep discussion, and that box is hammering like he wants it to.


So, yes, sometimes I do have problems. I had 1 box for sure that didn't perform well that I consider mostly my fault, and a maximum of 3 this year, total, that I know of, that we had to redo. There could be more that I don't know about, and I hope people tell me when their system sounds crappy. I absolutely hate when I make mistakes that cost people money, so I'm always trying to get everyone what they want, as long as it's functionally realistic.

Music is very emotional in it's nature, so people can get distressed and angry over a bad sounding box, so I hope anyone that has a bad sounding box will work with me, and we'll work on it until you get the sound you want, and both of us will probably better smarter after we accomplish great sound.

I don't get to see any of these vehicles, really, at all. It's all done with customers telling me all of their info, so it's a fundamentally hard job, at least with some people, because not everyone knows enough to describe what they want properly, which is completely fine. I try very hard to make sure I understand what people want, and it's like pulling teeth with some people, haha.
I’ve done my own designs on graph paper with a ruler for years. Ported and sealed boxes are relatively easy in any vehicle to get what I expected from a design. The bandpass boxes just seem to throw mistakes in your face over any little thing that goes wrong, amplified by 12. If the box isn’t a cube, expect them to be somewhat experimental from the start. I’ve had to do a couple rebuilds over the years on bandpass boxes.

Bandpasses are hard to keep track of sometimes, while designing. There’s a lot of moving pieces you have to constantly mathematically keep track of.

Just for the record, I may be incorrect about my taxes, who knows. But my generalized point of what I said still stands the same. The income tax is slavery, and the IRS are our slave masters. IRS are a bunch of slave masters.
It's wild because I've read plenty of your post where you say how certain people and things are sooo Un American but yet you post the most Un American things on this forum. You can't seem to make up you mind if you are an All American MAGA far right wing loon or a Commie Socialist liberal. One of the founding principles of this country is No Taxation Without Representation. It's one of the reasons for the Revolutionary War. So I'll say it once again, if your poverty @ss hates this country so much the stfu and gtfo. Do you know that Elon Musk is set to pay 11 BILLION dollars in taxes this year? Quit being a cry baby f*cking b*tch all the time. It really is annoying af.

I am a bit slow right now on designs; I'm having some significant back/spine + nerve issues right now, so I'm working to be over it soon. Designs are quite slow right now, on my end getting them out; just letting you know.

I am unable to design at the current time. I'm not sure when I'll be able to. My lower back is trying to give out, and I only have 25% of the problematic disk even in there, because 75% or so of it has already been removed. If you're the type of person who prays or sends loving thoughts to others, I could definitely use them. My chronic diseases wreak havoc on my spine, and what I have seems to be with me for life. My goal is just not to have my back fused. I want to keep that last 25% of my L5-S1 disk; that's my wish. Anyways, I'll be online, just can't sit long enough to design. I plan to come back as soon as I can, for I love what I do.

Nothing you just said even comes remotely close to disputing what I said. Some morons think Trump is a good guy. Some morons think Hitler was a good guy. MOST people are dumber than shit. Besides, I wouldn't want to interrupt y'all's sexy time. Lmfao.

Yo slow ride, you dont understand buck because your not capable of origional thought. The way you have to frame everything into stereotypes is telling.

I'm slowly crawling my way back into box designing. I might be putting them out slowly for a little while, but I'm getting there.

Don't hurt yourself bro. Must be really hard to post nonstop online but not be able to make a box design. The fact that you even need a computer for that says everything I've ever needed to know. Hey, I wish you the best my guy, and I mean that.
