I guess given that the 4345 is roughly half to one-third the price it would be the better bet. Plus it arguably has an actual resale value if one cares about such things.

    For some reason I thought the Array box was the same volume as the PS1400 box but I think it is roughly 0.4 cu ft larger at 3.2 cu ft (31 Hz). The 240Ti was 3.6 cu ft (30 Hz) and the 250Ti was 4.0 cu ft (28 Hz). I'm playing around with the 1501FE as time permits and it generally likes the same volumes. All the new 150xAL/FE generally like the same volumes although Greg and Jerry have been increasing the Bl in the latest versions.
    The combination of a Sam1 ( array crossover adjusted to allow higher sensitivity ) and 1501Fe would be a really tempting alternative. Sort of like the 4365 but with vertical horn. I would just about be willing to have a go at it . Pity there is no apparent way to buy 1501s.

    Depends on how old you are. If you've got a few years to spare, it can happen!

    ETA: Looks like the binding posts were some sort of gold color...

    I love this driver...

    I would like to order a whole bunch of them.

    I'd like to try out the new 2216Nd too.




    I just ordered a pair of 2206H's. I'm going to see how well they match up with the 1400 Array (SAM1HF) horns.

    If it works out I'll probably look at some JBL Pro subs to finish it all out.

    I'm Currently considering two 2268's (SRX718s) as subs together with the 2213, to give it an easier time. There are some used for sale locally.

    Oppinions?

    Yes I am tempted to just drop a pair of SAM-1HF stock over a pair of E-145's and using an electronic EQ to biamp them. They are both at 98db so no real attenuation at all.

    I had the same thought What the 145 won't do, I don't think I'd miss much.
    It's uh... uh... it's down there somewhere, let me take another look...

    Hello Grumpy

    You are going to want subs under them. I know what you mean but once you hear them with subs they are just too lean. Best way to describe it is tons of slam but no shudder.

    I have been watching them too, always wanted to try them out.
    If we knew what the hell we were doing, we wouldn't call it research would we.

    They are already too expensive for me since I would have to put fresh recones in them if I were to buy them.

    And who knows what might show up if I were to buy a pair of recone kits.
