    Maybe crown or qsc for mids and subs and Audion for my 2446 drivers.

    I´m building a home cinema at home with 2x2226h+1x2446h+1x2382a in my fronts and center speakers.
    For my rears i`m going to use 1x2226h+1x2446h+2382a.

    My subs are 4 st 2245h, i bought 2 from Niklas Nord and 2 from another guy.
    The 2 boxes who are ported to 25hz i use to music and to cinema i use all 4 subs

    How do you like the Lab Gruppens? I've always been intrigued by them becasue of their low weight, and have heard very good things about them, but have never had the chance to try them myself.

    Hello johnaec

    They are not a hifi amplifier in my taste but they play . I think mine are too small for my taste i want more power.
    I think the bigger Lab is better, more power= better control.
    The next bad thing is the FAN.
    I want to try Crown k2, no fan and lots of power. But here in Sweden they cost 25 000:- 1 dollar= 7,50 swedish crones.
    I think i will import a couple in winter when i have saved to them.

    regards mats

    DJ System:
    4 15" GMI Sound 1000 Watt subs
    2 6" 300 Watt midrange speakers
    1 Crown CE2000 Amp
    1 Numark CM200 Mixer
    1 Asus Pundit 2.0 Ghz 512MB RAM Computer
    and finally 1 Altec 9440a AMP
    Both amps are running on MONO mode.

    Theatre System:
    Pioneer 840W 7.1-Ch. THX-Certified A/V Home Theater Receiver
    Infinity BETA40 Front Speakers
    JBL SUB135 Sub with 4 Surround Sound Speakers
    Sony DVD Player
    Yamaha NS-AC141 Center speaker
    Sony Grand Wega 42" Widescreen Rear-Pojection LCD HDTV

    I got the Altec 9440a amp for $20 about a week ago. It turns on but I need to get a new fuse holder. I was wondering which type of fuse would be best for it. I know that it has to be a 10 amp 250v fuse but I'm not sure if it should be a fast-acting fuse, a slow-blow, a ceramic or any other type there might be.

    Aloha bachatero07

    I've sent you PM (private mail)
    The fuses in all 3 of my 9440A amps are standard type fuses.
    However they are 8 amp 250V AGC instead of 10 amp that are listed on the back of the amp by the fuse holder.
    I had them all serviced by Ira and these are what they came back with.
    He knows what he is doing, so I will leave these at 8 amps.
    I love these amps. Many of these amps are still in service.

    formerly "the city where imagination takes precedence over fact"

    my "hi-fi" or not really....

    right now I feed three technics 1200s and two pioneer cdj 500s into a UREI 1620 preamp into a Rane AX30 three way Xover....

    the xover goes into:
    crown D75 -- JBL 075,s (7500Hz and up)
    EV 7300a -- ALtec Model 19,s (full out)
    Hafler D500 -- Altec 825 cabinets w/ 515b (100Hz and lower)

    the 825 cabinets are on bottom, model 19s inverted ontop of the 825s w/ 075,s on the same level as the 811b/802G horns......

    ALtec MTM configuration, w/ JBL UHF supplements.....
    Disco sound on a budget......

    Hey JBL-nuts

    My system:

    Sony cd-player
    Pioneer DVD
    Classé CP-35 preamp
    DBX Driverack PA
    JBL/Urei 6260 (one in use, two in the garage)
    Crown Macro Reference
    JBL 4771: JBL describe it in the technical manual as a high power two-way full-range system 2 x 2226H + 2445J + 2380A + 2 x 2404H in each speaker. Very low WAF But I´m a bachelor so who cares
    I´m very happy with them!

    In the future I will use SUB 1500 in the bottom and have combined HT/2-chanel. I already have a centerspeaker DIY with 2235H + 2446H + 2380A.
    And, not to forget, I need a larger room. Today I have 18 squaremeters.

    Keep rockin JBL!

    Hypex HS 500 Plate Amp. 720W @ 4 Ohm, 490W @ 8 Ohm
    JBL 2241H in 12.5 Cu Ft home made box

    Sony SCD-C222ES SACD/CD player

    Luxman R-114
    JBL L100As 123A-3/LE5-2/LE25-2
    Crossovers rebuilt with new pots, polypropolyne and polystyrene bypass caps

    If I ever get the money, I would like to move up to large format monitors or performance series. I heard a guy's Legacy system. His front speakers were $5400 each (about what I paid for all my stuff). They sounded a hair better at first listening, but Studio Series is much more transparent and hold up much better to listening over time.
