    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...

    My room was about 30’ by 25’... 10’ high heavy velvet curtains with a lot of “fullness” helped a lot.

    If you can control your first reflections, they can image pretty well. Unfortunately that 120° dispersion pattern is tough to deal with in most rooms.

    The H91 horn also called the 2307 when using the JBL Pro version, is considered a 1200 Hz horn and the H92 or 2312 is several inches longer and is considered an 800 Hz horn.

    Looks like Harman’s packaging engineers are still coming up short.

    Luckily that beast is built like a tank, so I’m sure it survived. Looking forward to your review.

    I think this plays a much larger role than most of us care to admit.

    I always listened to my Everests with their grilles on, so the imaging was pretty good. :D

    I don't think we need to consider the original 43XX series in this discussion, as GT and JBL have learned a lot since that era. Those speakers were big badass designs, but compared to modern designs,...

    Yes, they could have, but did they want to build another M9500? To make the aesthetic statement they wanted to go with, they had no choice but to go with side by side woofers, and due to the size of...

    I wonder too. I made a smaller but similar trade off with my own speakers. I am sure that a vertical alignment is better, but is it actually audible? If audible how much of an impact does it make? On...

    I have owned the original Cornwall and liked them as “party speakers”. If the price is right and a 2’ by 3’ speakers fits your needs, I’d get them.
