    Hi Rob,
    it is also a possibility but i don't now if i can, I am not able to do that, this is a big job and i have also many other thing to do ...
    I prefer to buy an original, it is more expensive but it is also an investment that I leave to my children and grandchildren

    Just so long as they can carry it with them wherever they go. Kids hate to be tied to land lines or music boxes that need an AC cord much less 200 lb subwoofers.

    yeah, yer grandkids have been here before, talking about those cool speakers they remember you used to enjoy so much. They look really cool and they're in really good shape - say, what do you think they are worth???

    Go for it, and it will further enhance the JBLness of your system. Spend a little time shopping for the pieces you would like to have and you might find them a little less costly than it appears now. I just bought a turntable, does it have a cartriage-no, do I have albums-no, do I have a place to put it-no...do I have it yea. Does it make sense; of course. If some is good and more is better, too much might be just enough.

    Yeah, it's probably easier to either build one yourself or have one built for you. I'm buried otherwise I'd whip one out for you. I've posted the schematics numerous times. I think I also posted how to modify the 5234A/5235 to do the same thing.

    We should probably make up a bunch of new circuit boards. It would be a nice little project for people, kind of like the neat little projects Rod Elliott makes available for folks. In fact, one of his projects might do the trick instead.

    if i understand, i must add a amplifier for the B460 ? do you think i can connect directly to my Accuphase without BX63A
    if someone using a B460 could make a connection diagram it would be easier for me and I might just be understanding if I need to add something to operate a B460 ..

    Old thread, but since the original posting in 2009, I actually found a B460 for sale cheep, and had it shipped to me from Florida.
    I did find a BX-63A a year or so later, but frankly I have been running it from the Sub output of an Integra DTC 9.8 PreProcessor
    using a Harman Kardon Citation 22 Power Amp bridged to Mono, without the BX63A, and it plays VERY well that way!
    I have 4 UREI 809A coaxial monitors in the system, and tho they don't go real deep on their own, they are crystal clear otherwise.

    My friend Steve built 2 of the standalone 2245 subwoofers for his home audio system, and drives them with Adcom monoblocks,
    and they are downright impressive on their own.
