    Why does JBL 4365 only rank 10th in Japanese eyes?

    Because they have slanted eyes!
    Hey, relax...I'm Japanese so I'm allowed to say that.:p

    Thanks...but I already have the manuals

    What I need are the thiele/small parameters to make a box for it. As I am planning on using them as midbass in a 4 way system I will probably be housing them in an enclosed box. How do you...

    Sounds like a paper cone speaker with the 2482 phenolic

    One thing that people forget is the "era" gear sounds and works best with "era" components. The iconic Klipshorn (forget the model) that sat in the corner is a prime example of a speaker that never...

    How much better are P.A. systems today?

    I retired from the industry just before line arrays became the defacto standard. While I have never worked on one, I have heard many in great sounding rooms and outdoor concerts with some of the...

    Foam damping is the enemy of good acoustics

    Not that it doesn't have it's place in acoustical design, but people who go that route have no idea what they are doing. More damping, especially thin layers do more to harm the sound than anything...

    Can't go wrong with a 2441

    I am not sure about the quality of replacement diaphragms as I think they are after market only now. The 2445 was a dog of a driver. I used to own a whack of them for P.A. use and loved the...

    If I had the Tannoy's, I would gladly trade for the 4350's.
    You are really trading an inconvenience for an inferior inconvenience. It may take a number of years but, sooner or later the right...

    My 2 cents on an old post

    The LE20 is hugely under rated because of it's falling off response above 15K. (actually falling off from around 10K) But, it does exactly what it's original designers intended... a seamless...

    The 2405 and the 2105 are an excellent match. Look no farther than the 4315 studio monitor. Just cross them over high, 7.5K or better. The 2105 extends to 11K, even if not ideal in that range and...

    While the answer to that is a yes, I would argue the biggest difference is the band, type of music and HOW LOUD THEY PLAY!
