ever since i updated my Audio system, i've wondered "why is the AV room so warm after i've finished watching some movies, like WOTW" ?

i think i've found it.

in a lightning stroke of genius, i measured the AV room's wall temperature, before and after playing WOTW.
what a surprise when i found out that the difference was a full 3°c warmer; in fact, a good 3.12°c average increase!

the only reason i see for this to happen is the walls flexing; and by doing so, they heat up because of friction at the molecular level within the wall structure.

sounds like good science, doesn't it?
i just need someone to repeat the experiment in order to confirm it's validity.

Cool,

I'm one day late for this april fool :

It could be axiom that build a good amp to power your sub and dissipate that much heat in your room.
Do you know they take care of customers at winter period ?
When you pay for an axiom sub it's way more than for listening music.
You should thanks them.
Subs are in fact electric radiators.
They own contracts with a radiator company :p

Look at computer graphic cards, it's same story :p

Really, JB? Molecular agitation from the walls bending?
If you're gonna stretch the physical world that far for a theory, your thoughts would be better spent in alchemy or ghost hunting.

And I thought it was new walls you were after to unsquare your room.

No, Dan, I've been in it. It's not just square, it's a freakin' cube-----and it's irrepairable. It couldn't be rectangularized with all the drywall in Chiner. (Ha! Remember when it was just "tea?")
