I first bumped into Tom Nousaine on the old Stereo Review BB in the mid 1990s. He was very generous with his time as I prodded him with hundreds of questions (and believe me---the majority were very *noobish*) regarding DIY, audio measurements, etc. In short, without his patience and enthusiasm for my projects, there would likely never have been a svs, or a power sound.
Much of his published work can be found here: http://www.nousaine.com/
Tom was a true White Hat and he'll be missed.
