    Yeah - they've got a pretty weird naming convention. But I don't care, long as they sound good! Maybe Ian knows how Pass came about the names??

    Me? I like beer nuts.

    Ian - Do they have DIY's for the XA series? (I doubt it, but worth a try)

    BTW, I couldn't find a pic of Karen...

    Whaddya mean? Too difficult a build, or ol' Nelson gets mad if you ask for his circuit design?

    Looks like your coming up roses on your JBL scavenger hunt. Lucky bum!

    And Karen? She could be my parts girl any time....

    my hi-fi

    Instead of making excuses here 'tis:

    Small system is Pioneer SX-60 stereo receiver front end (bad amp section) driving a 1970s vintage Leach 90WPC stereo power amp (scratch built by my brother Don from Audio Magazine article plans) connected to a pair of KLH Model 5s with replacement 4" Goldwood cone tweeters from Parts Express on home brew rubberized damping rings made from scrap aluminum siding.

    "Big" (?) system is Gemini PMX120 stereo DJ mixer into a Behringer GEQ3102 stereo 1/3 octave EQ into DBX 223 stereo electronic X'over. The DBX summed mono LF output drives a bridged Crown DC300A connected to a Behringer B1800X 18" subwoofer. The DBX stereo high outputs drive another Leach 90WPC stereo power amp connected to (here's my JBL props) a pair of JBL era Urei 809As.

    For sources I use a variety of CD players and turntables and, yes, I'll play DJ at friends parties if they ask me to.
