    "I can get 6.9KW out of them"

    the reason is that i honestly dont think that a proper built (solid state) amp can make audible difference to another proper built (ss) amp when used as intended.
    (i attended some blindfolded tests)
    i like overboarding power, solid built quality and good handling and cant waste alot of money (need four amps). thats why it had to be PA amps with HUGE transformers and lotsa WATTs. i reduced the coolerfan-rpm and dont waste a thought about them anymore.
    theoretically i can get 6.9KW out of them but my flats fusebox wouldnt allow it...

    whats the difference in your monitors vs. the DIY speakers. how do they both feel?
    im interested!

    thanks..! of course i am. i got lots of dangerous hobbies, all careful.
    i am:
    a careful listener enjoying dangerous volumes
    a careful driver on a dangerous vehicle
    a careful cook using dangerously sharpend knives and hazardous culinary clues
    a careful dangerous pet and plant owner. see picture:




    thats how careful i am.
    -------------------------
    and now for something completely audio:

    my good friend robert recently designed a 12-channel pre-amp for use with a DIY active system like i (and he) have.
    the pre will be placed after the (digital) crossovers and before the amps. the reason for that is that the noisefloor coming out of the XO is currently FULLY amplified, and fed to my high efficency speakers. that means its audible.
    NEW: feeding the XO with full gain means relativly less noisefloor on the XO outputs, reducing the volume after that means i can turn the whole sound WAY down meaning the noisefloor vanishes.
    (well at least thats the plan)
    also the XO can be fed with full resolution/gain data and thats always a good thing.

    the board robert designed looks like this:



    this is real DIY, this is VERY cool.

    How could he have resisted an elder god like that?

    Wouldn't he want a cute little ancient one of his own?

    2360

    Hello, you wrote --> "im always eager to learn more about other peoples 236os "
    Feel free to visit my Homepage Zenosound. It cost me a lot of time get them sound, but then there is nothing better! But it is not with JBL or ALTEC Driver. In case this post is not wanted in this forum, please delete.

    hello ZENO!

    funny, i wrote you an email two years ago if you had any 236o to sell
    i see you use the mighty BMS coax driver. ive heard it on various tactrix-horns alot, and i really like it. sometimes i feel like i should test it at home, just for the hell of it. but the 245o is fantastic so...

    your systems look very promising.
    thanks for posing, and welcome to the board!

    2360

    Oh, and what was my answer? I can really not remember! Oh, yes, with the 2450 you will get outstanding performance too. Provided with DCX and the possibility to measure. When I started the project, there was no DCX, only one of the first digital speaker managament systems with a few parametric EQ`s. So I tried it passive, no way! Without the comfortable DCX I would have been sold all the stuff! Before the BMS I had the TAD 4002. Exellent, of course one of the best drivers I have ever heared. The only but outstanding advantage of the BMS are the real, punchy low mids. It feels like the whole music is coming out of the 2360. The BMS is the only driver i have ever seen with specification of x-max in the data sheet for the mid unit.
    Good night from Munich!

    luckily i found mine just a few days after the mail

    since i didnt get any answer, seinerzeit, i would think its only fair if youd post at least some pictures of your systems now? maybe even wanna make a whole thread, i think what you do is pretty interesting and -unique!
    thanks!
