    Welcome to the forum!

    I'm a little surprised that no one has popped in with suggestions and comments. I have been meaning to, but am too busy to give your post the time it deserves.

    If the only difference between the two woofers is the polarity, no big deal. Just reverse the wires at the woofer.

    I have no experience with that horn, so I can only guess. JBL used to cross it over at 500Hz. Physically it is a very small horn for such a low crossover point. I doubt that would be an ideal...

    The crossover frequency won't change per se, but you may want to change the crossover frequency when you use a different horn. The horn will have a significant impact on a speaker's sound quality.

    From our earlier conversations, I assume the goal is not to make the "perfect" speaker, but rather the best possible one with the available components for your listening room as heard at the...

    Do you keep the mic in the same location or average a number of locations? I find it most useful for "in-room" measurements to use an average of several mic locations. For measurements focused in the...

    Very interesting. I imagine that as long as both versions of these horns are mounted as intended to a baffle, the difference in their resonance characteristics would not affect their performance...

    Great to hear from you again… snarky or otherwise.

    You can get a single channel version of SMAART from Studio Six Digital for about $70. I haven’t tried it, but based on the modules I have tried I bet it’s pretty good.

    Every measurement system I have used will give you some form of realtime capability along with MLS or other tone bursts that are typically more useful. You would be able to use the RTA or other...

    Talking to the Yamaha engineers, there is no way to avoid the A to D step. I have no idea why they chose to design their equipment this way… Maybe the volume controller only works in the digital...

    Thanks for the generous offer... but I'll take a rain check.:D


    If you used a digital output from the Oppo, then you have eliminated one level of conversion, but if you go into the Yamaha on any...

    Thanks Todd for this detailed "backgrounder". Now I get it.

    From my perspective I would put this amp in the same category as Lowther full range loudspeakers. There are many out there who get...

    How loud do you play? Many decades ago I used a pair of K130s in a high output home stereo system and found the bass was actually pretty good with a bit of shelving EQ below ~150Hz. 3-6dB of boost at...

    Excellent advice. Looking for something new is always fun, but sometimes it makes sense to wait.
    When you do get ready to replace the amp, I would suggest trying amps in your room with your...

    I'm not sure there is a debate here. ;)

    Yes, but if the tube amp has top quality output transformers the impedance shouldn't be an issue. In my experience with high quality tube amps the...

    I am not a fan of RTA measurements in general. They were the SOTA in 1982, but today we have better tools.

    I assumed your noise measurements were using calibrated equipment from your work.

    I assume they are static appearance models created by/for the industrial design team to sell the design to management.

    If I understand your post, you have a stereo pair of speakers, but you are running the left and right woofers in mono and in parallel? If that's the case, you should try it wired conventionally and...

    Welcome to the Lansing Heritage forum.

    The 077 is functionally and exact replacement for the 2405. The only difference is cosmetic. Don't worry about the impedance rating, there is much confusion...
