    The definition of the Technical Forum is "Discussions on repairing, restoring or upgrading Lansing products". To me, a Lansing product is a complete system. Therefore, a DIY forum could mean discussions on designing and constructing custom systems from scratch using JBL drivers and components. For example modifying a 4343 crossover would fall under the technical forum, while designing and building the Project May system would be in the DIY forum.

    I have this information from a very good source. But, you know this "Looking for Giskard" is starting to remind me of Elvis sightings.

    Anyway, I too was wondering about this and I call over Whit ( my German Shepherd) and had her sniff a few of the old Giskard posts and then posts from the new people in question.

    Her answer ....Bark..woof..woof ( Let sleeping dogs lie)

    "GISKARD has left the bulding......."

Granted, the factory manual doesn't give tolerances, but if a guy wants to use a better cap or coil but it's the same value, I think that qualifies as a restore. On the other hand, when you change a crossover point to eg. 1200hz from 800hz, etc., that should go in DIY modifications, because obviously it's not restoring to factory original specs.

    So I guess I agree that a new category would be good for DIY/Modifications.

    Hi, I am a DIY-er. I wonder with a split up between "restorations" and "modifications" what to do when a thread is about a subject and deviates from "restoration suggestions" to "improvement suggestions". Which can happen quite easily as JBL designed most speakers for PRO use but most of us are using them in our living rooms being able to make other choices with regard to power handling etc.

    Maybe a splitup between a technical forum and a specifications forum could work?

    greetings, Frank
