    Yep, it would have been nice if it had stayed on topic.

    It will continue

    I will continue with this thread anyway.

    I'll publish crossover schematics and VD graps as well as grill details (when it's done) as time permits and interest is there.

    I will also try to describe the sound compared to other speakers I have WHEN the cc crossovers are ready and in place

    All this will take some time.

    Did you ever consider going fully active with this project? Going from normal active, with passive compensation, to fully active made for a big improvement for me.

    NO

    As I can't afford a Pass XVR1 + two (or four) more Passlabs XA or XA.5 Amps and are too busy to build them I don't think about going active.

    My experience with going active is that (affordable) active crossovers destroy the wonderful smoothness of my OPAmp free Passlabs chain. This is -as everything Hifi- my personal and maybe worthless opinion.

    I use Passlabs or DIY Passlabs gear only since 5 years.

    K .... the sound . The quality of the components cannot be questioned . The bottom end was like nothing I have heard before.
    Tight and deep bass, Mid range wide and dynamic ... the UHF I thought rolled off too quick at 26k ,but hey ... not too bad though.
    The networks are still a work in progress ,so more will be revealed I'm sure . Listened to a lot of high res tracks - really hard to go down in bit rate after that . Its the high res that really made them shine .

    Its a shame HD is so limited in variety. Classical and Jazz are plentiful ,but I can't listen to that all the time . I did download some tracks when I got home and set the DAC to 192 .. It really is a different experience altogether. The sense of space and clarity is amazing .

    Guido was using his F5's and mentioned that he felt his old amps were smoother in the mids ( I didn't say a word as the XAs' now live in England with no plans to cross the channel again ) I was shown some rather interesting schematics for a new amp build though

    The build quality is German ,thats all I need to say . I got a real insight into the process of tweaking the networks by ear ,but look forward to my next trip to hear the conclusion .

    I don't think I have done the project justice , a hard think to do when you don't have a technical background ,but I can say that if money and parts availability were not an issue ,there would be some sawdust flying here in the living room .

    If JBL had a room there ,they kept it very well hidden . We didn't see it . We did hear the Genelec and the new TAD Evolution
    Andrew Jones certainly knows how to build speakers. IMHO , too much bling on most of the gear. A lot of things I'd never heard before ..... even more opinions LOL
    These D&M were interesting :
