    Yeah, but luckily you are in Nevada so no need to worry. It is only a carcinogen in CA. :D

    I don't use an SPL meter, so no, I do not use A weighting. If you do the result will be far too much bass, since the bass is significantly rolled off with an A weighting, C is closer to flat.

    There are probably a million ways to get there. I start out by getting the levels close to right sounding by ear, then I bring out the test gear and get it as close to flat as possible with a slight...

    Cabinet vibrations can be reduced significantly with rigid construction and added mass to absorb the excess energy. Westlake uses massive amounts of acoustic damping goop and their very large...

    I know that tweeter well... I used them in several designs back in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. It had a pleasant if slightly rolled off sound. If I recall correctly it was available in the $10-$15...

    It is amazing what JBL Pro has been able to get out of their little monitors.

    Nice wire management by the way. :D

    I'll second that. The JBL crossovers of the day made exceptional drivers sound pretty standard in my opinion.

    I would seriously consider different woofers too if you can, but even if that is not a...

    Where is your measuring mic located? If it is not within a 1/4”-1/2” of the cone you will be getting some degree of room interaction. If you are taking a gated MLS measurement you need to raise the...

    It isn’t that simple. The current capability of the power supply and other design aspects of the amplifier will determine the actual power capability at different impedances, but as I mentioned...

    Yeah, you’re a decade or two, too late. Of course back then your woofer would’ve weighed a lot more…, But it probably would’ve worked too. :banghead:

    First, I would check your surrounds. If they have been treated and are very flexible or if they have been replaced, then I’d look into the tuning. To verify the tuning, you’ll likely need to measure...

    That is a bummer... but look at the bight side. If it was half of a pair of unobtainium vintage Western Electric woofers it would be worse.
    Good luck getting it replaced with minimal drama.

    Even 60Hz is pretty much solidly in the bass region. To me mid-bass is north of 100Hz, and more like 150-250 Hz.

    Regardless of what we call it, you may have a room mode around 60Hz, though a Q of...

    I’m not sure you have to worry about the woofer becoming boomy just because of the proximity to the floor. If you were making a three-way, getting the woofer up a bit will help with the mids, but in...
