Our first practical session

On Wednesday the 16th of March, the three of us EPD seniors went down to the IDC workspace to work with my UROP supervisor Dr Ulf Bissbort. Having worked with him on the Stealth speakers, I had gain a little bit of experience and found it really useful for the project. Our goal on that day was to understand the parts that went into the Stealth, and to correct certain flaws in the first iteration of the design.

We had identified a few problems with the current iteration

  1. A background hum on standby mode- likely attributed to noise in the ground loop. Proposed solution- Produce a transmitter and receiver circuit
  2. The second speaker does not turn on with the first from standby mode. Proposed solution- Change the XLR cable to a 5 pin one so that it can accommodate a power relay.
