    I've gone back to Old School.

    After using Genelec 1032A s for a couple of years, then a JBL LSR system, I'm going home.
    Broke out the old 4312s , Crown PS200, Soundcraftsman 20-12A
    and a Soundcraft 200B.
    I'm in heaven !

    Did you draw yourself a big smiley face with the old Soundcraftsmen?

    I know what you mean, too. The 43xx series is pretty special.

    Not so privately , the only "swap" I personally endorse is to try the 128H in that very cabinet.

    Here is my model from WinISD - dated June 2003 - in the 4312 cabinet.

    Green = 123A (stock)
    Yellow = 128H

    The 123 has that pronounced "hump" popular in the '70's. I found the 128H more pleasing (neutral) and it seemed to offer better "bass extension" - but that impression could be solely psychoacoustic as it sure is not very obvious in the model.

    I'm sure Grumpy could run a model, or Widget (he never has returned my BassBox Pro... ).

    Anyway, since you're revisiting the past, this might be an interesting - and hella easy - thing to trial.

    Looks like your description matches your plot pretty well. There's an extra
    2dB at 40Hz and that freq range would be more audible against a less
    boosted upper-bass. Isn't it all psychoacoustic?

    Oops... sorry man. I eventually did find my copy. Yours was sitting on top of the to-do pile... I guess it got buried.

    I guess I am due to visit the coast and have a glass of red and share in some quality 4345 time.

    I'd tend to agree... a fairly wide 2 dB bump in this region will be pretty well noticeable with the right material if there aren't any room modes in the area to mask it.
