Re: Headphones Input Jack as Audio Input?

From that site I found this guy. Looks like exactly what I need but I noticed that it says it's a 15w/ch amp. The speakers are 4.3w/ch. Does that mean that this amp is too strong? Can an amp even be too strong or is it just saying it'll be more than capable of powering the speakers?

Re: Headphones Input Jack as Audio Input?

The only 3.5mm input is the headphone jack (at least after thorough searching). I had also seen that aux input spec on the site. Here is a link to the manual, but it's not very helpful.

My first thought was disconnecting the speaker...

Re: Two objects with different mass in freefall

The force of gravity, F, is equal to mass, m, and acceleration due to gravity, a. The acceleration due to gravity (a) is the one that is constant. The force caused by this acceleration will differ with mass.

Re: What is the easiest way to get rid of your sense of tast

If you keep mouthwash in your mouth for over the recommended 30 seconds, it can affect your sense of taste. I don't think Listerine is quite as bad as some other ones can be, but it'll definitely alter taste after a while.

I usually stay up pretty late and classes at 10-11am are perfect. It's late enough to where I'm well rested and early enough to where I can still enjoy my afternoon.
