    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 Radian driver presumably will not have the JBL diaphragm, unless JBL has elected to give them the design and has wholly gotten out of the high-end driver business. There are a lot of unknowns...

    Good point on the room and also what music you listen to.

    Most chamber music and 50-70s rock have very little bass below 40Hz. I listen to a much wider variety of music than that so I find a...

    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?

    If they were mine, first I would want to verify that the LE85s were up to snuff. Assuming they passed muster, I would get a pair of LE14As or one of the other JBL 14" variants, and then I would...
