  1. My DIY nod to PWK

    Nicely Done !
  2. I used a Rane AC-23 for awhile w/Jbl 2445 on a p-audio cd horn knock-off and a JBL 2404 tweeter. For a 2-way set-up, I used an Ashley XR-1001 w/ same mid horn and driver. Then EQed with an ART 355 on both set-ups. I would agree with the Truextent diaphrams in the JBLs for some extra extension. Now I use a passive network(700/7500). Allowed room correction on my Emotiva as a starting place. Then used EQ. It's not that one sounds better than the other, their just different. Big D

  8. Aaron, Just read thru the thread. WOW! What an ordeal. I am glad it all worked out. You had every right to be upset. Spending that kind of money should have warranted a more cautious delivery from the company. Well at least you can enjoy your holiday. Happy Hoildays, Big D
  9. Painting Vinyl speakers

    Go to Sherwin-Williams and get a product called DTM. apply to speaker, let cure a few days sand then paint. this DTM will even stick to glass
  10. Been using those horns for 6 years on top of my Jub clones. I've used BM-D750, Selenium D-405TI and JBL 2445. All sound good, but I stuck with the JBL's. Bought another pair of the 450 horns and shelved them for my next pair of clones, when I find the time. Good luck on your build. Big D

  12. Music Lover vs. Audiophile

    I am first and foremost a music lover. I like it to sound as good as my pocketbook will afford. If you spend all your money on gear their is none left to buy music. Without music the gear is useless.

  14. What I Got Today!

    Picked this up today. I'm a fan of R&B/Soul. And it sounds really good on the Jubs.
  15. Advice on klipschorn build.

    I assume you know that Khorns are a difficult speaker to build. Lots of angles and compound cuts. I built a pair several years ago with moderate success and using them in my bedroom system. The speakers that James mentioned are a little easier to build. They still have a few compound cut but by far easier to construct. I know their are others here who have built the Khorns. I hope they will chime in as well. And yes it is very satisfying to build and listen to such a complex speaker. I will attach a pic of my build.
