    Yes....but the humidity in Oslo today is 86%, and 74% average year round. 8 years of accumulated moisture is going to have an effect, as you can see. Once the moisture goes in, it's not coming out...

    Get a set of machinist picks/scribes. Use the scribe with the 90° angle inserted through the screw hole and pull upwards as the speaker is lying on his back. Might try heating up the woofer frame so...

    My mind tells me that this topology is analogous to a see-saw action in respect to the sinewave. Push-Pull with regard to pushing the cone outward with one coil while the other coil reverses the...

    Back in the early 1980s in Orange County was a band named "The Snowmen", from Erie, PA. They were CA touring to try to make the big time. White makeup like Kiss, and everything on stage was white....

    Hi ivica,

    None of the JBL drivers you mention have dual layer voice coils. All edgewound voice coils are single stack, single layer.

    I believe B&C has some drivers that have "inside/outside"...

    I saw a pair of TAD Reference One...as new...for less than half price on AudioGon the other day. Under $35K. They blow away anything by Revel. Just being honest.

    Very much why I didn't particularly care for the 4367. Too much detail was pushed back in the mix. The sound was very big, but rather very bland.

    Not really.

    Mic placement has everything to do with soundstage and image. Two mics placed above an orchestra or small band will have very little "soundstage", other than left or right. Two mics...

    Hi Ian,

    Headroom is nice to have, but that is just overkill for this model's capability. The LE8T woofer is a 25 watt driver. 6dB of headroom gets you to 100 watts.
