[19:22:32] <Bytram> "A rack unit (abbreviated U or RU) is a unit of measure defined as 44.50 millimetres (1.75 in). It is most frequently used as a measurement of the overall height of 19-inch and 23-inch rack frames, as well as the height of equipment that mounts in these frames, whereby the height of the frame or equipment is expressed as multiples of rack units. For example, a typical full-size rack cage is 42U high, while equipment is typically 1U, 2U,
[19:22:32] <Bytram> 3U, or 4U high."

[19:24:39] <Bytram> so... 42U / 3U ==> one could fit 14 x DGX-2 in a single rack ==> $5,586,000 per rack... and consumes 140,000 watts

[19:33:48] <Bytram> used a crown dc-150 (IIRC) for the pair of mids on each side

[19:35:56] <Bytram> about two feet wide, 3 up to 4 feet tall, and about 3 feet deep
[19:36:04] <Bytram> curious, we asked what it was
[19:36:10] <Bytram> projection tv
[19:36:17] <fyngyrz> lol
[19:36:33] <Bytram> was intended to be connected to a VCR so they could play movies on the Unions 12' screen
[19:36:36] <Bytram> hmmm
[19:36:44] <Bytram> I asked how did it connect to the VCR
[19:37:01] <Bytram> found out it also had a pair of RF hookup leads

[19:37:10] <Bytram> hee hee!

[19:37:54] <Bytram> in short order
[19:38:05] <Bytram> he had the Atari hooked up to the video projector
[19:38:14] <Bytram> and to the concert equipment
[19:38:16] <fyngyrz> If you look at that rack pic I linked to, on the left, tall rack, the 2nd unit down is a lovely programmable crossover. That's what I use to create a biamp config for the studio
[19:38:17] <Bytram> yep
[19:38:40] <Bytram> oh, yeah, we had active crossover for the amps
[19:39:17] <Bytram> so, I was soon piloting my spaceship on a 12-foot diagonal screen with very loud sound effects
[19:39:26] <fyngyrz> As It Should Be
[19:39:33] <Bytram> when I went into hyperspace... it sounded like a 747 taking off
[19:39:42] <Bytram> and the explosions
[19:39:50] <Bytram> made my chest feel the impact
[19:39:57] <fyngyrz> I pilot mine on a 204" screen here, with dual 18" subs and 3 KW of audio
[19:40:01] <Bytram> oh, did I mention this was back in about 1981?
[19:40:18] <Bytram> there was not even an IBM PC yet, IIRC
[19:40:20] <fyngyrz> nope, but I gathered from the "at school: bit
