    cheers.
    I have pairs of older 5234 activecrossovers, one with 250Hz card and the other with 290Hz card, I have triedboth with my DIY 4350 and hear no difference at all.

    I remember hearing a pair of 4340's in a small studio. I really wanted a pair unfortunately they were all sold out at the time. 15" woofer, 10" lower mid and the smaller horn, 2420 I think. IMO the 10" was snappy and the horn was smoother than the larger 2440.

    They sounded incredible - best JBL studio monitor I've ever heard. The louder - the better they sounded.

    I wouldn't know which are the 'best ever', as I've heard sooooo many in my lifetime of audio 'dabbling', as I'm sure many out there can pro'ly say the same, BUT one thing I do know, is that most JBL's sound BEST, just before they blow up. I'm hoping some of you will know what I mean….

    Aquarius IV S 109

    "For aesthetics in no particular order:

    Hello,

    you write Aquarius IV "for aesthetics"...Somewhere it's true. But they are the only one to offer such a sound!

    I've got a question: what do you think about this association: two QSC bridged mono, that's to say 300W + 300W for the Aquarius? Of course, not to use the full power, but just for the dynamic and the space the power amps will give?
    I would be glad to have your opinion and those of other members too

    Headroom is nice to have, but that is just overkill for this model's capability. The LE8T woofer is a 25 watt driver. 6dB of headroom gets you to 100 watts.

    To make sure I'm understanding your post, do you have a pair of Aquarius IVs and like their sound, but want to get the most from them?
