  1. I do have some ideas I'm gonna work out depending on some other projects (HiFi related), will try to right it out tonight or one of these days! Very busy, as I just started my medical apprenticeships, and I have to pull long 60-70h weeks, with masterthesis, studying and other time-consuming responsibilities in the weekend. Enjoying audio will probably be pushed to the far background, let alone contemplating and building new DIY speaker set ups..
  2. We pulled of using just only 1 bassbin on each side, with an 18" below. 2 tophorns for better diffraction. It was by far a good setup, as I was having exams at the time, and wasnt able to be there during stagebuilding. We had to place them inside "towers" which meant suboptimal placement. Volumewise the single bassbin was able to keep up without a problem (we have a limit of 95db max, and the space wasnt too big). We might try again this year, but I'm gonna have even less time this time, so I will not be able to be there, which is a shame if I lend out my very expensive gear..
  3. Hey Does anyone happen to know the polar control/coverage of the Lascala bassbins? Cant seem to find it anywhere.. Thanks in advance!
  4. And listed price is only for horn and driver, or also including the LF bassbins?
  5. by saying you are not separating the K942 combo you mean the LF and HF compartiments? Or horn and driver?
  6. Only horn I see on the Klipsch 942 is the K402 itself (on a double woofer bassbin). Or is it a real 942 horn specifically?
  7. I recently came across this horn, which was described as being a mid-horn from Klipsch, but I dont recognise it. Anybody any idea?
  8. Just redid all the PEQ settings I had, and tried something different to measure the delays. I just used the built in "acoustical delay" function in the REW measurement tool. I redid the in/output settings in the processor so the High frequency driver got the left signal, and the Low frequency driver the right. That way it calculated the delays as it would between 2 speakers. Only took me a minute or so to do, without having to change any cables. It also extremely simple to do, and I dont think you can make any mistake interpreting it as it just says "you need to apply .... ms delay". When I applied the new delays I got a totally new speaker! Damn, the voices and intelligibility improved so much!
  9. The woofer does seems really high quality, thats true. I also thought it was about the frequency extension and size. Does make sense As far as I know the retailer I linked, and contacted, did sell them. Doesnt really matter as it doesnt like I'm gonna buy them. I'm happy with the K510 on my LaScalas for now!
  10. Any audio experts ( @Chris A ) who can maybe help me decide how to set it all up? Area that should be covered is not very deep (around 8m so 26ft.) , but almost twice as wide. I have 4x P Audio PH4525 and 2x Klipsch K510 horns. For drivers I can choose between 2x JBL 2446 drivers and 4x Faital PRO HF200 drivers. The horn/driver combos will go in seperate top bins. How would I best stack them? The HF200 can do 500-20 000hz, so I was wondering how I would use 2 on each side without lobbing. Could I prevent lobbing by having each driver carry a different spectrum? So even though they are identical drivers, have one go from 500-4000, and the second one from 4000-... ? Or could I just have both of them do the full 500-20 000 spectrum? The area to be covered is around 8 meters deep, and 16 wide. So maybe best to no stack them, but put 2 on each side and have them cover a different horizontal region?
  11. PS some measurements I found (I think they're from Geddes, not sure though.) Looks like theyre pretty flat to almost 500hz.
  12. Also you're definitely not the only one frustrated by the direct radiating in the M2: " I was quite impressed with the wide dispersion, clarity and neutrality of these speakers when I heard them at an AES Convention a few years ago. Only wished they were not vented. The horn compression driver is an ingenious dual diaphragm design by Alex Voishvillo for extended high frequency coverage and low distortion at high output levels. Alex Voishvillo, Dual Diaphragm Compression Drivers, AES Convention Paper #8502, NY 2011"
  13. I still have 2 huge peaks around the crossover point, but the difference has almost disappeared at the crossoverpoint itself. What is the (probable/plausible) cause of these peaks (@ 870hz and 421hz), and how would I take these on?
  14. Well I was thinking the exact same thing. I must say I'm basing a lot on things you told me, but I have been looking a lot at the behind-the-screen models of their cinema line, as well as to the M2, and I did wonder how this direct-radiating model could ever be so superior.. Everyone is raving about it, and I believe that they sound amazing, but why would they leave out the horn loaded bass? It seems like theyre going all out on everything, but neglecting the bass. It is a fact though that the M2 is a studio monitor, and that that could explain the direct firing model no? This way they boast a flat response from 20-20000hz which is something that comes in pretty handy in mastering etc? That aside. It looks like the best part about the M2 can be bought seperately! (https://reconingspeakers.com/product/jbl-m2-horn-lens-5025594/) . This is without a driver, and is not unreasonably priced, which made me curious. Not convinced. But curious. Still want to go 100% for the MEH.
  15. @Chris A Hey Seen a lot of good reviews about the JBL M2 studio monitors, and primarily about their horn. It seems they also boast an extremely good polar control. Have you had the chance to hear them maybe? Or have theoretical comparisons between them? Thanks
