    DIY Everest DD66000....finally

    Dear forum Friends

    It was a 2 year project but finally the cabinets are ready for pickup. They are still at my carpenters shop but will be picked up soon. Many thanks to my Carpenter for his outstanding work!
    The components to be used are:
    4x JBL 1500AL
    2x JBL 476Be
    2x JBL 045Be-1
    Thanks to Giskard for his help to get these incredible stack of componets together!

    I must confess that all crossover parts are still sitting on the shelf and I didn't manage to make the crossovers yet. I bet I'll be fast when the cabinets are here.

    I will post some progress here but it will need some time as I'll do it right.

    The hornmouth was "re-engineered" by Jan Daugaard years ago. He also did the basic form of the horn lips. Modifications to achieve the original JBL conical/exponential form where done by myself.

    Thank you Jan!

    Nice !


    > Since you "re-engineered" the adapter that lives between the driver & the horn bell , is the angle ( seen above ) a match to the originals' entry angle into the "lips" ( to achieve "D.D." ) & is the part a simple extension of the overall exponential flair rate , as seen in the horn walls ?

    Hi Earl,

    I don't have the original Ev2 here. AFAIK the adapter is a bit shorter than original. It doesn't matter where the adapter ends and the horn begins or vice versa.
    The mouth section and angles are very similar to the H9800. The EV2 horn is a widened H9800 or H4338 (the designer might correct me ).
    I doubt that this horn is an exact EV2 horn clone but it measures close enough for me if I compare it with JBLs own 476Be/H66000 curves.

    PS: The JBL BiRadial flares near the adapter are conical and later exponential.

    Thumbs up

    Absolutely Gorgeous!!!

    To call that man a carpenter is a great understatement. That man or woman is by far a very skilled cabinet maker.

    Congrats.
