    And I'm glad it has a great home with Phil!

    By the way, have you posted any updates on your home build?

The L series was designed before the HT boom, and didn’t have a center channel, so the design intent I’m sure was 2 channel music. Guess the massive subs between haven’t given you any issues in this regard? (I have two HTPS3-400s between my PT800/PS1400 stacks). Thanks for posting, been a while since anything new popped up on this thread, good to see L7s in a high end setup like yours. Maybe I’ll get mine back on the floor this weekend from your inspiration....cheers
    You know, I've owned my L7's for around 26 years. I've never had an issue with how they sound **however** I have either had them in a room where I could not listen to them like they were meant to be listened too, or I had them in a decent enough room. That being said NOTHING and I mean NOTHING prepared me for the sound that is coming out of them after putting them in a room and tuning the room. I have a friend who's an audio engineer and he flew into Fargo and spent a couple of days at our house helping me set up the room and showing me how he tunes a room. The sound is unlike anything I have ever experienced.

    I am also driving them with a LOT of power which makes the sound easy and free with no compression, none, nada, nothing............ even at a sustained 115-117 db at the listening position.

    L3

    I just scored a nice clean pair of L3. Should have them next week. In the meantime I'm trying to find the schematic for the crossover. I've been looking off and on for a week now. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

    About 2 years ago I sold my L80T that I recapped with Sonicaps and have regretted it very much. I also let my L20Ts go. So needless to say I'm very happy to have some JBLs in the house again. They will give my vintage Polks some company.

    I'd just like to find out the values of the caps, resistors and inductors. Not sure I will mess with the inductors but want to put new caps and resistors in.


    Thanks for any guidance!
    Chris
