    I also was unable to get the performance I wanted from my TAD system when I was experimenting with passive networks. Going active with a highly resolving and flexible active crossover has allowed me...

    To answer your original question, you can use the 2202 down to 150 Hz if you give it enough digital encouragement. This will likely limit your maximum SPL… But that is pretty high already so unless...

    A few thoughts on this topic.


    Adding an active crossover is effectively adding a second preamp in series ahead of your amplification. If your preamp is on the level of a Denon AVR, you can...

    Probably, the D130 has a light curvilinear cone and duraluminum dome bonded to the top of the VC. This combination provides a lot of midrange output well beyond 2KHz. Would you prefer an actual D130?...

    Mechanically they are an exact match for the 075s and electrically they are an exact match for the 2405s which are the tweeters that your crossovers were actually designed for anyway. So yes, I...

    A mystery.

    Looking at the glue job of the dust cap, it looks extremely well done, perhaps even a factory job. That said, as you are aware the D130 should have an aluminum dust cap. If it was a...

    Hi Herman, I can tell you that the TAD TD-4003 on the TH-4003 is extremely accurate and about as good as this technology gets. I use a pair of TD-4003 drivers on a pair of very faithful clones of the...

    A few random thoughts on your project:

    1. The LE15B woofers are 4 ohms each, so make sure your amp can handle a 2 ohm load. I am not sure either of your Macs will be happy with that load. I would...

    I agree that it is a good thing that they’re providing their specs, but the fact that they are offering it in white makes me fear the worst.

    I would guess someone modified that LE15A to perform subwoofer duty.

    I don’t believe JBL ever produced an LE15A with that treatment.

    The original woofer of this series was the 2230A. It had a massive coating of white aquaplas to increase the cone mass to the desired level. I don’t remember why, (to reduce distortion or failures)...
