Okay, Battery good. Check! (always try a different battery just to completely eliminate the possibility)
No debris on the speaker. Check
Could the pommel be binding the speaking?(try without pommel)
Try a different speaker.(If it still does this..its not the speaker)
Check for naked wire or something to that nature that would be causing a short or feedback through the speaker. When you have this its more like popping and cracking. IMO Its different from the sound of a busted speaker.
Lastly the issue may be board related.
Anyhoo my thoughts on it. Just eliminate one by one. Starting with a fresh(different) battery.
Do you arrange the 144/m strips in a back to back fashion?(2 strips)
I did both back to back and a triangular prism with 3. Both lead to vertical shadowing where the edges meet. That's why overall the 5mm straw hats are the best, even though they have slightly more of the "corn-cobbing" that is a lot easier to hide with diffusion. Maybe I'm not in the norm and other's won't mind the vertical shadowing but I really did not like it's appearance at all.
I have not tackled a string blade build of any kind, but I am very interested in doing so. As I'm looking at the close up of the Neo pixel strip I see how there would be gaps even if using a triangle formation.
I have been experimenting with (BEF) Brightness Enhancing film in an attempt to make a brighter hilt lit blade. The film is used in LCD TV's, along with diffuser film panels. Where the diffuser panels/sheets are white, the BEF has a micro surface that magnifies and can bend the light. I'm not sure if anyone has made attempts with this in the past.
Here's a link that gives a little descriptions of how it works.
This film takes minimal light from your LCD TV or laptop and increases the screens brightness. The film performs better when light is pointed at it or passing through it.
I'm wondering what would be the result if it were cut into strip form and laid on top of the Neo pixel strip?
These diffuser panels and BEF panels are very expensive. But I found that my local TV repair shop only keeps useful electronics from unrepairable LCD Tv's. They've been throwing the panels and other internals away for years. My guy has been saving the film for me and I pick it up when he calls. I would really like to try it with a string application. I would also be happy to share some of the panels that I have if anyone else would like to join in on the experiment.
swisssalvo: I'm sorry, I am just getting into this forum now, and I am looking for Kanan Jarrus build, any directions people can give me?

Rogue Five: Hi swisssalvo. Are you looking to buy a hilt or do you just want to see a build thread? I don't think anyone has posted a build thread for a Kanan hilt on this forum yet.

swisssalvo: ill see if i can go find NerfworX thread. Thanks for the heads up. Is the run closed do you know?
