    Good Sound

    I was born in the mid-80s and grew up listening to mp3s players and basic Best Buy budget speakers.

    This is great idea. I will take all measurements with cap in place, and then remove it for my final measurements. I am using sweeps to take measurements - so I'll adjust the bottom end to start the...

    Sorry - to be clear, this won't be for active/bi-amp setup.

  6. When measuring compression drivers with waveguides/horns.....

    Is there is a need to include a series capacitor to protect the CD? I'm not measuring at loud volumes on anything.

    If the answer to the above question is "Yes" - would it not impact the measured...

    I used to own a larger version of these horns (2" throat). I wish I took measurements at the time. They were used with JBL 2441 w/ Be diaphragms. I also owned a pair of Westlake-like smith horns. To...

    Jim,

    Lifting the speakers off the ground made a huge difference. Much cleaner and less boomy bass.

    All that being said, I sold the speakers cheap on local CL. Shared my experience with the...

    Rdgrimes,

    It might come to using EQ. Sorry, I didn't mention this, but I did play around with placement as well. At the moment, the speakers are placed 44" away from the back wall and about 36"...

    Just picked up a pair of JBL L100t3 over the weekend. While the speakers mids/highs sound nice, I'm not sure I'm a fan of the bass.
