    I guess you’re asking how the large wide horn affects imaging? According to Greg Timbers the horn width is actually mostly aesthetic. The functioning part of the horn is maybe a third of the total...

    Simply considering impedance is oversimplifying the application of passive crossovers. Yes, impedance absolutely matters, but a well designed crossover is so much more complicated than a simple slope...

    If they are and you can get them properly installed, that would be my choice, if only to keep the woofers serviceable.

    That said, I would also be very tempted to try the 2216Nds in there.

    I guess it depends on your application. Ribbons are mini line arrays and as such they typically have very limited vertical dispersion. This can be a boon or a limiting factor. Also most ribbons are...

    Yes, as in Behringer Electric. That’s why I said with all due respect. The other Behringer wouldn’t be afforded the comment.

    I would bet the only reason for the change is economics. I doubt the performance has improved with the driver change, but it is possible.

    The 2235H is much better and is what JBL used in their 80s and 90s studio monitors.

    If you can get them and the price is acceptable, I...

    The 476Be has the 4" diamond surround just like the other newer JBL 4" diaphragms.

    Perfect, it sounds like you are on your way. If you bi-amp and DSP, you can make these into some pretty darn good speakers.

    Do your LE14As still have their Lans-alloy surrounds or are they foam?
