    JBL4565, you new avatar is from Logan's Run? It looks like Michael York and Jenny Agutter.

    Exactly it’s a production photo from the film. I selected it after looking around at so many images in Google image and then stumbled onto this one. So this will be the new avatar for the time being with JBL Dolby and THX logo inserted into the picture.

    Wouldn’t it also be better to place high frequency absorbent materiel on the inside of he radar ears because the sound, I would imagine it would be very shrilly as it hits the smooth corners and then onto the ears?

    Well, I am an idiot. I could have looked at your signature. Not to mention 4645 is not 4565...

    You know those would make good lottery numbers you know.

    Say does anyone use there JBL model number as lottery numbers, not that I have played the national lottery since early last year.

    I could use the number 1 from my JBL control 1
    Then use the number 5 from my JBL control 5
    Then the number 4645 but in this sequence

    1 5 45 46 then use the model number 2240 that is the sub bass driver so now that I have six row of numbers.

    1, 2, 22, 40, 45, 46, LOL

    Hmmm, I think I’m going to play those numbers this Saturday LOL

    Are you crazy? I will not dare to use the same numbers every time. Think about if the numbers goes in, and for some reason you haven't delivered the coupon.

    I always use the machine in the shop that pics random numbers.

    i use that machine to choose my jbl drivers.




    btw: 95dB are pretty loud in my opinion, and in an untreated room unbearable for my tiny little ears.
    soft, tender and hairy, they are.




    cheers,

    How can you? The lotto numbers are two digits - 01-34. The JBL (pro) drivers are four.

    Well talking about loudness I conducted this simple test for enjoyment.




    Just how realistic are ambient sound and do they often fit within the room without being too exaggerated in loudness.

    I tested one scene from a film that I was looking over with low end frequency waterfalls. Then one scene caught my attention with "Executive Decision" (1996) when Doctor Grant played by (Kurt Russell)




    The levels of the AVR was set at -9db separates with DCX2496 amplifiers Alesis RA300 LF and Marantz 1050 HF all set to comfortable room levels.




    The scene when demonstrated was heard with an extreme mild level on the left and right with part of (Kurt Russell’s dialogue heard on left and right) but at an extreme low level “If this was DZ5” with haunting knocking music sound on the left and right.


    The centre is slight different mix with more of the water droplet sound effect into the glass as it plops down into the water.



    The level is around or within 50dba at 1metre distance.

    I tested the idea out with plastic cup filled with water and placed within the same area, only don’t place water on top of electrical items! I conducted a few delicate tests and the water dropped within close proximity.



    The crossover frequency for DCX2496, is set for each channel is equal the bass-mid at 1Khz and HF at 1Khz upwards. While muting the HF I found that the sound was more than audible while (left and right was muted) the centre LF produced more than enough audible range. With LF muted and HF running it was somewhat different sound far lesser.

    While looking the centre channel EQ the effect is 1 KHz thou it might be just a little more wider.

    LCR front loudspeakers used are JBL control 5.
