    Hi Stew!

    Your first post is a real doozy, I must say. What a discovery you've made.

    That's true in my area, as well. JBL seems to have the club and church markets well in hand. My church has a JBL line array/subs system that is just killer.

    Your crossover build pictured above is very attractive and neat looking. You did a beautiful job. I really like the "frame" you built around the upright inductor. Very nice work!
