    For 1/10th the price the 4760 is worth a listen if you can get away with its world-class anti-WAF looks :-). I heard the K2-S9900 recently and came away somewhat unimpressed after 2 years of 4670...

    get a dedicated sub

    We had the exact same issue with the 4670 system in a buddy's man cave. I looked into those JBL subs and concluded that they weren't going to add anything that the 4670 wasn't already doing. We...

    I think that's just how they were voiced. If you look at the specs they are already down 6db by 36hz iirc. The Aerial 7s in the exact same spot had strong bass down to the upper 20s.

    And yes it...

    These have been on my list for a very long time and I finally got to hear a pair (freshly refoamed by our local speaker fixer extraordinaire Brian Salazar of Holt Hill audio). He has them in one of...

    Yes, we did some experiments with a DBX Venue 360 recently, and it was quite a surprise. Despite all of the digital wizardry of this device (including room analysis and many kinds of EQ), we just...

    It's on the list somewhere between using a modern digital xover (DriveRack) and tubes for the horn. We both didn't think it really needed one after I bumped the lower sliders a few db on the EQ. They...

    Mind Blown - 4670d in the home

    Well...I may have crossed over to the "other side". I've been here for about 2 decades now, dabbling mostly in vintage JBL home speakers (peaking with the 250Ti). I've never considered myself a horn...

    I too had always read (and believed) that the old foam - once worn out - would result in less damping and therefore a brighter sound. This is not what I actually experienced. I sent my 044Ti's out to...
