    When you draw a donut, do you make the hole first?

    Without the hole, is there even a donut?

    Herself, a sucker for jelly donuts, would say that hole placement is critical. But are a pair of exceptional jelly donuts really not just nice buns?

    I think jellies are like bars or claws or fritters; a specialist sub-set of an archetype.

    Then again, I really doughn’t know.

    Infundibulum! I’m making a wee box for my Wife to put her phone in, so it will “amplify” the sound.

    What?! You don’t make weird and dumb stuff to keep your hands and mind occupied?

    Oh...

    ETA: the inside will be painted GOLD! Oooh!

    True confession: it was originally a cartoon for a roof for an imaginary space house for an elaborate set I’m designing and building for Quad. There is an entire fishing village coming to life.

    Based around that dumb space scow model.

    I don’t know how to do much, but I do know how to play like a child.

    The phone cave. Needs wee feet, and a hole drilled for the infundibulum.

    Okay. I got this dumb thing done enough to test it.

    It actually works! It makes the music louder!

    I am finishing the assembly, and then I can post a picture. I know. Exciting, huh?

    Sounds like you have the makings of a perpetual motion machine right there.
    You just need to make a larger one to fit that one into...

    The best part is, it actually works! Haha. It makes the music a bit “trebly”, but the sound quality is pretty good, actually. It reminds me of the all-in-one record player we had as a kid.

    And, now DJ Dearest can rock out while she goofs off.

    I need chickens. I was afraid The Devil would eat it, or I’d have gone for the cute puppy photo. Maybe it would have been funny to use the huge dog...

    I need an artistic director! And I need a photographer! Sheesh!

    Dr. Snapshot, much?

    Yeah, the length of a horn is mathematically related to the depth of the pitches it will produce - some proportion of the wavelength of the pitch. It's why really some high end loudspeakers will have "folded horn" geometry while running a single really good full range speaker as the audio source. No worries about tweaking a crossover between different speaker drivers, and the horn amplifies a low volume source. Read about it at one point, though I can't remember more than that.

    Next time, make it like a nautilus shell if you want to pick up more lower (or at least midrange) frequencies...

    Oh, I made a very specifically and carefully plotted exponential cone shape. One that fit on the box, and had the right sized small opening.

    He made the wee map and photo in the helmet.

    Then he takes these little plastic toys and sticks them out by the lettuce, and they look like this.
