Why is it said that one should never keep a potato in the fridge?

When you store potato in a fridge, the starch in the potato is converted into sugar. When you bake or fry these potatoes, these sugars combine with amino aid asparagine to produce acrylamide which is harmful to health.

Does a bass reflex speaker give more bass than an acoustic suspension speaker?

1 user answered

Pankaj Agarwal, Korba

This is not quite correct. While it is true that bass reflex speakers produce more bass in a particular frequency range due to its tuned port and they can play louder than acoustic suspension speakers when driven the same amount of amplified power. But to do this, they exchange bass accuracy for the added bass.

How is a 2-way speaker different from a 3-way speaker?

Ram Kumar, Rajnandgaon

For a 2-way speaker, the crossover splits the frequency band into 2 ranges. The bass frequencies go to the woofer systems while the treble frequencies go the tweeter.

For a 3-way speaker though the frequency band has 3 ranges, the third one being the middle frequencies which are sent to a third driver that called the midrange. The 3-way speakers need more room for drivers because of this. So most of these speakers are floor standing models.

How is a pre-matched surround sound system different from a component speaker system?

1 user answered

Lalit Soni, Sagar

A pre-matched sound system is considered a good alternative to the component speaker system since it is very space efficient. These speakers tend to have a smaller front, non-powered centre and surround speakers along with a small non-powered subwoofer.

Meanwhile, for component speakers, you get a great deal of flexibility since you get to choose the number of speakers as well as their size. Component speakers often have the better build quality as well as a higher performance to go with the receiver and the home theatre.

How do spikes help out in speaker stands?

1 user answered

Narendra Sahu, Bangalore
User, Level 6 Contributor
Spikes are useful if you have a carpeted floor. In these cases, having spikes at the bottom of the speaker stands can help improve the sound quality. They also provide a much better stability for these carpeted floors. This is because the spikes can help tighten up the bass response through the reduction of the sound-muddying vibration.

Built in 1727 at a width of just 31 centimetres at its narrowest point and 40 centimetres on average, the 3.8 metre long narrow alley, called Spreuerhofstra├če, between two closely built houses in the city of Reutlingen, Germany currently holds the Guinness book of world record for the title of the narrowest street in the world.

The previous record was held by the 50-metre long parliament street in Exeter, England which looks more like a street when compared to the earlier one. At its widest, it is 1.2 metre wide while at its narrowest it is 64 centimetres wide.

Why is it that in all iPhone advertisements, they have time displayed at 9:41 AM?

1 user answered

Taran Luthra, Bilaspur
User, Level 6 Contributor
This is because all Apple keynote events start at 9:00 AM in the morning, with the unveiling the product around 40 minutes into the presentation with an additional minute provided to cover for any delays.

The time actually used to 9:42 initially. And the first time it happened was in 2007 when Steve Jobs announced the release of the very first iPhone. Around 42 minutes into his address, Steve Jobs said

"Today Apple is going to reinvent the phone"

And then a picture was displayed that showed the very first iPhone with time set at 9:42 AM. It was in 2010 that the time was changed from 9:42 AM to 9:41 AM.
