    The Arrays will probably image better because of the horn orientation. If I were you I would at least have a listen. The biggest difference is the woofer the other drivers are essentially the same except for AL+Ti vs Be and the network is CC in the 9800

    It sounds to me that you should stick with what you have.

    obverously K2 S9800 is not in same class with Array 1400 in JBL speakers order,S9800 is flagship at that time and is hi-end speaker and 1400 is hi-fi speaker,just look at their price tab
    BTW,S9800 is not loud at all

    “A 3rd option could be to get some H9800 horn copies from Guido and equip them with Radian + True-extent beryllium dia's, all for the cost of about 3.500 euro. I really like the 2123, but with these instead of my 2344/2420 I could get my crossover point a little lower to say 1000Hz and probably get nicer highs.

    But my current system is so tuned to my taste that all the different options that I have investigated over the past years have not 'made the cut' and instead my system keeps being improved bit by bit. Yet it is stil very ugly...

    I am afraid the Array 1400 system won't make the cut due to it being passively filtered and bass reflex and not being a 'high sensitivity' design”


    I agree and think it would be a risk to switch to another system at this point. You have a good loudspeaker and good Amos.

    You could try a 1 inch Radian be driver (talk to Guido) and do better on the active crossover.
    Btw the Array can be actively crossed over if you know how.
