    Here is the link to "THE ANCIENT AUDIOPHILE'S QUEST FOR THE ULTIMATE HOME SYSTEM"
    http://audioheritage.org/html/perspe...audiophile.htm

    Pictured below is a smaller satellite version of this ultimate home system.
    It has taken me nearly two years to get this far along on my quest.
    And there are still some minor tweaks and refinements that I would like to address.
    But, once I have got the satellites done, then I will be able to start on the sub-woofers.
    Drew Daniels describes these speakers as having an effortless, bigger-than-life sonic quality that makes for a very detailed and revealing reproduction of the input signal.
    And even without the sub-woofers, I have to agree on that point. Effortless and bigger-than-life sure sums it up alright.
    It's quite an upgrade from my old 030 system.

    Itís big, itís bad, and itís ugly alright.

    Yea, I have to agree. My equipment rack does look is pretty ugly.
    But, it's my place and I have to live with it.

    Oh, my girl friend really thinks I am crazy with all this audio stuff.
    And I am sure that she really hates the looks of this system.

    But, when I put on one of favorite CDs, Ah, thatís when I see a big grin on her face. And it's really a lot of fun to see her jaw drop a lot. What a hoot.

    If Tim Alan's character on the TV series "Home Improvement" were to ever build a stereo system. I really think this would probably be it, with an additional 4-2242s and 2 Crown K2s to fill out the bottom end.

    My gear - from my very first post here!

    I have owned JBL horns for over 25 years, this set of 2482/2350. I see most of the posts are about JBL stereo speakers, but they do use some of the same components.
    Currently using a pair of 2482/2350 horns, 2402 tweets, I can't remember the 12" speakers - I think they are E-120, but I bought them w/16 ohm voice coils to keep each cabinet at 8 ohms. They are in Peavey slant monitor cabinets, also over 20 years old. DBX 15" passive subs.
    PSA-2 for the 15", DC 300A II for the 12", DC 300A II for the 2482, Marantz 1060 for the tweets.
    DBX-503 w/wired remote, DBX-100 subharmonic synth as well. A little bit goes a long way with the DBX units, as in less is more, with most music.
    (3) Furman Sound TX-3 X-overs to split it all up.

    All the electronics are in a comercial steel rack that I put casters on the bottom of. It's also ugly , but makes it easy to access the gear.

    My system sounds best on a hot summer day, outside, when you are about 40' away from it. But I do use it in the house as well, just not cranked up to the "call the cops loud" level.

    JBL horns just have a special sound you won't hear from anything else!
