    PC,

    I wonder if what you are hearing as a "slow" driver is really a timing or phase problem? Perhaps playing with those settings will clear up the muddiness? after all, 60 hz is 60 cycles per...

    Rain Concern?

    Is it possible for the driver to get wet during a storm? Not sure how your chimney is built, but it would be bad if a 2245 got wet.. or critters in the chimney?

    Beautiful!!

    Champster, your build looks absolutely beautiful! Great job.

    However, I am wondering if the 10" OB would perform better if you allowed the 2245 to provide everything from say 60 or 70 Hz down,...

    Yes, many have over the years. I did with 2425 drivers with 511 horns and they sounded good..



    Not easily.. You will need to redrill the flanges of the horns or create a transition piece.

    2404H or 2404H-1?

    Which driver are you actually using? 2404H or 2404H-1??

    There is a significant difference. The 2404H-1 will tolerate a much lower crossover point but does not go up as high as a 2404H. The 2404H...

    We did not listen to the Truextents in 2450, they were in either 2441 or 2445. However, when compared to TADs, I'd give them a slight edge. Others in the group might give the Tads the nod, but in any...

    Audiophile?

    4825 crossover questions: 4430?

    I picked up 6 JBL 4825 speakers. These have 2204 or 2206 12" woofers, a 2344a (modified) waveguide and 2425 drivers.

    I was thinking of stealing the waveguides to make some 4430 clones, but in...
