Help me replace a blown woofer for a Spica TC-60

How do I replace a blown woofer in a Spica TC-60 loudspeaker? The datasheet is here. I am generally capable, but don't know anything about building/repairing speakers. Can I get away with replacing just the one? Is there any danger of damaging the crossover (whatever that is)? The very nice guy from Madisound recommended a ScanSpeak replacement but how do I know if it will fit and/or work properly? If I'm reading the datasheet correctly, the original seems to be 180mm in diameter, and the replacement he recommended 170mm - is this a good idea? How can I tell if there's anything else I should try? What, if anything, do I seem to be overlooking? Thank you!

How can I get a Sansa MP3 player to recognize folders?

How can I get a Sansa MP3 player to recognize folders? Using the MSC option, it is recognized as a virtual drive and I can copy MP3 files (podcasts) to its podcasts folder, but it seems to disregard the subfolders I have created under that folder. This is for a new Clip, but it does the same thing (if I remember correctly) on my Fuze.

Which headphones should I get for a long (14 hours) flight with kids?

Which headphones should I get for a long (14 hours) flight with kids? I want ones that are comfortable on a large head and are easy to remove, because I'll need to get up frequently. I looked at noise-cancelling headphones on Amazon, but the ones that sounded best for me (Sennheiser PXC 450) are too expensive for something I'll use infrequently. On previous trips I've used earplugs to deaden the ambient noise and just turned the volume up on my (airline-supplied) headphones, but there must be a better way.

How to lower peaks/raise valleys on an audio clip?

I'm a journalist; I record all my phone interviews, outputting them as WAV files. I just did one, and for reasons I can't determine, the audio levels are haywire - my input (when I'm asking questions) is eardrum-breaking loud; the answers to the questions are whisper-quiet. I'm trying to figure out how to remedy this automatically; flatten the peaks and boost volume on the whole thing; or flatten the peaks and raise the valleys (or another solution?) I'm on a Mac.

How to record two people at once who are walking without a third person recording it?

I need to record two people at the same time. I can't follow them around with a boom mic and I don't want them to be attached at the hip with a splitter to one recorder plus 2 lapel mics. How do I record two people, walking around, talking to each other? Do I need two recorders? AND if I have two recorders, how much of a pain will it be to edit the material/will it sound weird? How is this normally done? It is for the radio. [more inside]

I need audiobook recommendations!

I need some new audiobooks! I'm a screen printer and find that listening to an audiobook helps me to focus and get more done during the day and consequently, I get through 3-4 books a week. I'll listen to just about anything (science fiction, biographies, western, you name it), as long as it's engaging but doesn't require too much concentration. I've listed my favorites below. Tell me what you've enjoyed listening to and what I've been missing! [more inside]

Music makes me feel like...

I'm looking for audio of people saying interesting things about making or listening to music -- movies, youtube videos, hip-hop albums, tv shows, doesn't matter. I'm especially interested in people talking about how music or dancing makes them feel or why they make music, more than details of how they make it.
