  1. Haha ... ordered a XLS 2502 a couple of days ago And yes, probably "overkill," but found a (customer return) 2502 on Reverb ... cheaper than I could find a 1002 Add-on note ... S/N on the 1002 is not as good as the 1502/etc ... no clue if it matters
  2. Haha ... ordered one
  3. Saw them once in London ... awesome Also was in London when Freddy died ... unbelievable; people were crying in the streets and the BBC played Queen videos continuously for days
  4. Wow; my wife would love these as shelves Just got some big 18" JBL bass bins and was told "definitely NO."
  5. Sorry; no clue ... had never even heard of these ... seems to be a great speaker ... specs: https://f072605def1c9a5ef179-a0bc3fbf1884fc0965506ae2b946e1cd.ssl.cf2.rackcdn.com/product-specsheets/KPT-4350-MS-Data-Sheet-v01.pdf
  6. Yes; agree But the XLS 2502 I bought (customer return) was cheaper than an XLS 1002 (@ 1/3rd power) I promise not to turn it up to max
  7. YEAH! Do I hear $26? Actually, if I do sell them they will come with K-691 drivers Tried them with Forte's, but the Forte's just were outmatched by these horns. So; trying them with 18" JBL bass-bins ... but don't have enough power ... new amp coming next week
  8. OK; my 2 cents Yes, fatiguing thread going back to 2017 No clue why some people complain about the "high" Klisch sound. Haha ... I usually raise my HF's by at least 3dB's. OK; much depends on the actual recording, room and "YOUR" ears. Cheers, Emile
  9. Yes; sorry ... edited the post Was trying to drive the JBL's (SR4718A; 4 ohms, 98dB; 30-3300Hz) with a Marantz 1060 (30Wpc; not sure if more watts at 4 ohms) and just did not get much volume out of them OK ... haha; ordered a Crown XLS 2502 (775wpc at 4 ohms) That should do it And I can set the crossovers with it. But still would like to control the HF side (K-510/K-691's). Maybe I can use the miniDSP, maybe not Cheers, Emile
  10. 0.9V is the output on the miniDSP ... yeah ... sucks ... the Dayton unit has a higher output Add-on ... 3.5V
  11. OK guys ... educate me PLEASE Just checked the wavelength of 38Hz ... it's almost 30 feet! Doesn't it just bounce off and continue ... or does the reflection make the sound bad (i.e. cancelling reflections)? Haha ... just put some JBL 30Hz bass bins in my small stereo "experimentation" room Cheers, Emile
  12. Has anyone bought/used this Dayton Audio DSP-408? See https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-dsp-408-4x8-dsp-digital-signal-processor-for-home-and-car-audio--230-500?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwJu3pN2E4QIVkoRpCh04Rg2CEAAYASAAEgJwqPD_BwE . Looks interesting Main reason for asking ... currently have a miniDSP 2x4 (NOT the HD version). But my preamp puts out max 20V and this miniDSP is only good for a 2V input (i.e. clipping when I turn my preamp past 10 o"clock ... yes; know I could use an attenuator). The Dayton DSP has "high voltage" inputs, but not sure what that means But, output is only 0.9V (edited ... 0.9V is the output of the miniDSP) ... like to have more for my pro amps. Also not sure if it integrates as easily with REW as the miniDSP. Thanks a lot, Emile
  13. Bruce, Thanks ... may have to tap your expertise
  14. Haha ... do that all the time here
  15. For those interested. Have worked with Carl before ... trustworthy guy ...
  16. Haha ... yes; the bass is VERY GOOD But, in my SPECIFIC case, tried to match the Forte's as bass bins with K-510 horns ... and in comparison to the horns they were just a bit "anemic." So; trying the "pro" route. (Haha ... just bought a 775W/ch amp for the JBL's ) Cheers, Emile
  17. Since I had "problems," I tried their customer service. Excellent; always got an answer within 24 hours
  18. All the newer units are set to 2V inputs ... you can change it to 0.9V with an internal jumper
  19. Word of caution Have a miniDSP ... nice unit, but mine starts clipping at 1/3rd pre-amp input. It is set to 2V in, but out is only 0.9V so don't expect to use it with pro amps. The 2x4 HD version supposedly is better, but not sure why or how.
  20. Haha ... yes; have a set of (cheaper) Forte I's and the bass is good, but ??? Just bought some JBL 18" bass bins ... 30HZ ... so far so good ... but they do require "pro power." Good luck with the sale ... they look awesome
  21. Chuck Levin's Music Center is selling some Crown XLS 2502's. 440W/ch into 8 ohms and 775W/ch into 4 ohms. They list "one" on Reverb.com till it's gone ... then they relist another one. https://reverb.com/item/10618769-crown-audio-xls-2502-drivecore-2-power-amplifier They also have them listed on FleaBay. Just bought one for my JBL 18" bass bins (Have a Crown K1 for my KPT-904's, but just wanted to "try" this model. Supposedly the fan hardly ever kicks in.) Think they are customer returns ... new ones are about $650, MSRP $1099
  22. Yes; "public," but not always easy to find Oh well; just ordered a Crown XLS 2502 off Reverb.com ... haha; could NOT wait any longer
  23. Any discounts today?? Thanks, Emile
