    I sold DCM for years, and they were our go-to speaker for people that actually listened to music. Surprising sound, considering the drivers - most of them were a 6Ē or so woofer with a 1Ē voice...

    Iím really glad those are in FL, and not on the west coast. If they were west, Iíd probably be trying to figure out how to get one or two of them into my shop without my wife knowing:)

    Good on you! Fun choice, and I'm sure you'll love them, until you don't. I held off on posting on your thread, as much of JBL is traditionally like much of Klipsch, so I'm not sure what you'd gain,...

    Yes, same ME150H uses the same frame as the 2227. If you look in the for sale thread, Cooky is selling a pair of 2227's reconed as ME150H's. Guido has also posted on doing this in the past. I do...

    Absolutely, but you may not like how it sounds, so donít be surprised if you end up moving the amp along to someone else sooner, rather than later. I ran my 250tiís on vintage Krell in the 90ís back...

    My guess is that POS thinks the 1401NDís are 16ohm run in parallel, which would be 3db less efficient than two 8ohm speakers (1400NDís) run in parallel. Since the DMS-1ís have a set of binding posts...

    As far as I can tell, the 4641 box is the functional equivalent of the B460 - 8 cubic ft tuned to 25hz (I think the B460 is tuned to 26hz) so a 2245 should be great, providing you have the ability to...
