    By normal size room I meant 12x15 up to 20x30ft. I think those are roughly what most room sizes fall into. 30x50ft would be large. I somewhat see your point about multiple seating but you are just...

    Thanks CONVERGENCE and hjames, I will see if I can rent those DVDs.

    I would say this to those teasing the younger folks, do you remember when you had to get up to change the channel or volume on...

    Now this I disagree with. I think in most normal sized rooms the inclusion of a center channel is a mistake. Heres why, if you have a good size tv for home theater its parked right where the center...

    I just turned 30 a month ago. How did they record those back then? I know they used Multi track magnetic tapes but how did they work? I know about the principles of magnetic storage, I mean what...

    I recently bought a Denon AVR-988 and would agree with this. I've owned several Onkyos within the last 12 years. The difference between the $500 and the more expensive receivers is features. ...

    To be fair, if you only listen to certain types of music at certain volumes, they are hard to beat for the money. If you like older rock or jazz at somewhat loud levels, or if you want it to sound...

    Wow, that sounds much lower than I thought it would be. I've paid 1/2 that before just to ship within the USA by truck. You live in the UK? Is it possible shipping is cheaper there. ( i.e some...

    Most of the internet sites have them at about 800,000 yen (6,600USD) each.
    Used pairs seem to be around 1,000,000 yen. I don't live in Japan so I don't know how far, if at all, you can haggle down...

    Are you using the old pepper pot style or the new tulip waveguides?

    I was thinking of doing a 4-way with a pair of sub1500s I have. I would still need to find a driver to do 60-300hz-ish.

    Did you guys ever stop and think maybe Japan seems like a JBL mecca because it has a small land mass with a high population density? It has to be much easier to show case high end items when 150...

    Thats Zilch for you, he's half way towards Project April by now. Most guys would have just pushed in a loudness button.:)

    My 802-8gs supposedly had a good charge, and have new diaphragms, so it...

    Ah, never mind then.

    For some reason I was thinking you had a DEQX which would make the things I suggested really quick and easy to test.

    Going by the old Altec brochures a 416 should be...

    It will help, but in my experience, not all the way. It will be interesting to see your findings. I think it has more to do with the horn being used too close to its cutoff and the horns general...

    Zilch, Its all maddness, haven't you learned that by now.:)

    I was half joking, but there are so many variables besides speaker response. I know the sound I want. If I listened to a speaker and...

    I have a question. If you measure first, then listen, isn't there a very good chance you have already prejudged the speaker. For example the 6.5k dip, lets pretend thats a measuring error. When...

    My advice would be to listen to the speakers for 3 to 6 months and then decide what, if anything, needs changed. I think just shopping for "better" components, without clear goals, is a...

    Have you thought of trying a planar tweeter?

    1. They come in efficiency's that match a Valencia without padding them down.

    2. The range you will be using them allows you to skip past most of...

    If I just listened to 1960s and 70 rock and pop I probably would have kept using the Altecs. They have elements to them I like, but I know what I want my system to sound more like, and the Altecs...

    Nope. It was a night and day difference. I did not run my Altecs without it. Sounds much flatter. Gets rid of the "horn ringing" most guys try to get rid of by using putty but which is actually the...

    5.5 khz is where it starts to drop, 7khz is where it stays and slowly drops a couple of db until 12k where it falls off again. (0db at 5.7k -9.1db at 20k)

    I took a 45deg one because I can still...

    I measured my 802-8gs on a 511b with Radian diaphragms. I measured from 18" on axis and also at 45deg. I used my Tact which has a calibrated mic. The results are amateurish but maybe Zilch will get...

    I have Radian diaphragms on 802-8gs. How exact of measurements do you need? I have a TacT I could use to measure them but I'm not a professional, so I don't know how scientific the results would be.

    Could be worse, he could have paid $1600 for L300's.

    So basically to sum it up.

    Group A: Dynamics and impact are where its at, who cares about imaging and frequency response. Why can't those other guys get a clue and find out what real sound is? ...
