One particular conversation I would like to share here is, a reader asked " James, can the Hi-Nest Amplifier takes 600 tweeters?".
What surprised me was not about the question he asked or the number of 600 tweeters he requested.
It was the mentality and the knowledge he has that surprised me . Over the years we have been burning the midnight oil just to design Amplifiers that would produce good quality Swiftlet sounds . I mean the frequency suitable for Swiftlets ( not human).

Secondly do you want to own many unsuccessful Swiftlet farms or you would rather own just a few which are very successful?
If you want a single Amp that could take 600 or 1000 tweeters there are plenty of karaoke sound system Amplifiers on the market that could do that. So go and buy a Karaoke Amplifier instead.
The theory is simple, overloaded and handling too large amount of energy or sound wave would subject to sound distortion and energy lost...subsequently it would also damage the Amplifier thus shorten its life span.
I always stick to my sound system technique which is 50 tweeters for the left and 50 tweeters for the right channel. I always encourage farmers to use multiple Amplifiers which means one Amplifier for every each floor of the farm or 2 amplifiers for every each floor if they want to install many tweeters.
Reason , if in the event of short circuit or lightning, if one amplifier burned or damaged the rest still functioning and you don't have to worry about the whole Swiftlet farm without sound. Bear in mind we only visit our Swiftlet farms once a month and if the whole farm have no sound chances are young birds might migrate.
Why only rely on a single Amplifier for the whole 3 or 4 floors? I have visited many Swiftlet farms and I have seen many farms practicing this ( one Amp for all). The Idea of using one Amplifier for whole 2 or 3 floors had been practiced for many years. The real reason behind it is the person who undertakes the project of building the Swiflet farm wants to save cost.
That is why you see many farms using sand bricks or single layered bricks instead of clay bricks even though the differences of cost is nominal. They knew single layer brick wall will kill the micro but they still do it ( maybe they didn't know)., At the end the owner will suffer but not the builder. To them it is all about costs cutting immaterial whether it is rm100. 00 or 20 cents. It is the attitude of cutting costs here and there.
Hi-Nests "B-52" is not a common amplifier, it products sound frequencies of birds. It has relatively low high pitch frequency which cannot be found in common amplifiers.
One of the most commonly misunderstood theories of many in this field is that Swiftlet sounds should be in high pitch..the higher the better. This is totally misleading. Not all Swiftlet sounds are in high pitch..for example : baby chick sound is not in high pitch, clicking sound in not in high pitch, laying eggs sound also not in high pitch and many of them are not in high pitch.
People asked me why I named the Amplifier HI - Nests B-52. For those who have used the new version of "B-52 Extreme" they know what I mean. A powerful external sound particular recorded to be used for attracting birds to dive into the entrance hole. It works more than just attracting birds to come and play, it entices them to dive in and stay.
If you have used my GS series sound and the B-52 series you know the quality of the sound. Guarantee no distortion or money back. I Keep my promises.
Simple.............. compare it with the other sounds that you have bought then loads them onto your Computer you will notice the differences...especially the clarity.
The External sound B-52 Extreme version is a must have external sound if you want to increase your bird population.
Should you have any question please do not hesitate to contact me. After all I am here to teach and help.
Good Swiftlet Farming All!.
