  1. Unfortunately, a case of wishful thinking. Here's a snapshot of a label in one of my systems. Purchased a year ago and shipped via (out of) Hope.

  5. Those of us who attended Chief Boneheads class last Oct. listened to a very well done listening comparison between the Heresy III and Heresy IV. The comparison was in the listening room of the lab and was about as controlled as one would ever hope to expect. You will be hard pressed to find an attendee who would say the IV is not a significant improvement over the III. I'll be the first to admit I'm not blessed with the Golden Ears many claim to possess, however, I do trust my ears implicitly. The most significant improvement to me was in the bass response. Simply put, the IV sounds like a MUCH larger speaker than the III. I would suggest you wait on your purchase until you've listened to the IV...and save your penny's in the meantime. The IV's are a little more $.

  7. Are the bass bin input terminals recessed, in a bit of notch, on the rear of the cabinet? The couple pairs I've owned were. This is a built in handle. One hand here, the other inside the front top edge of the doghouse and away you go.
  8. Reading through these threads and It looks as though Xilica handles the shelf filters differently than the EV processors. With the exception of the Jubilee/K691/Xilica settings, I believe all Roy's settings derived from anechoic chamber measurements (Jubs/402/Tads, MWM/402/k69, Jubs/402/B&C75, etc.) are for use in the EV DX-38. If this is correct, plugging in the settings for the EV processor would not be "right" in the Xilica processors. If one is using a different combo than the Jub/402/K691, is there a simple conversion to correct the dissimilar parameters between the two processors or does one need to measure response, with the Xilica in use, to determine the correct shelf filters?
  9. I get the analogy, I was simply referring to my competency in the two subjects.
  10. The given speaker(s) I was referring to in this case were Jubilees and Jub-Scalas using Roys settings and tweaking those for in room improvement. The point I had difficulty understanding is the paradox of taking measurements in room to determine the speaker/room interaction while trying to minimize the problem influences. I have a better understanding of this now. If only it was as simple for me as environmental influence on internal and external ballistics.....
