Sorry for the late response. You probably remember earlier in this thread, I sent Rob one of my 2435HPL's. His measurements and my own listening confirmed the 4" SL CD to be better than the 3" Be. ...

Piece of cake Coach! With my baffle wall I have to remove the screen, then carefully slide each speaker forward to clear the cut out. Then pull wires and unbolt the CD. I have done it 4 times so...

Wow, is that a smokin' deal since these speakers new were about $2200 each! The 6215 is a special speaker no doubt. I still have one I use outside for parties. The combo of 2226 and 2431 just...

Chris-hows the sound compared to your venerable 4722's? I too am curious about these for my fam room. I use a trio of the AC18/26's now. Also a JBL fanboy!

I love AVS !!!!! We are so fortunate to have Mark (and occasionally Tom Danley) post on here. These are the two foremost speaker designers in my world. One day I may be able to afford them!:D

I love, love JBL products. I even have an MS-8 in my truck.
The 590's look awesome, but let me put in a recco for the 4722, Cinema speaker. It really takes the home theater experience to a new...

The Tannoy line is highly regarded. I found some new on ebay for $100 each. About half of the usual cost. They work well, and have good sensitivity so I drive them from my receiver.

Another consideration is that you have the 3677s a few feet off the floor. They would probably have more bass if coupled with the ground plane. Also, consider building a baffle wall. Once I did...

I'm not sure why you say this. The active upgrade with DSi amps, and all of its benefits, are as plug and play as it gets. No need at all to tweek using HiQnet. I have it, but have never used it.

Wow, thanks Rob. That was a great analysis! Sure makes me re-think my next steps. Maybe the Be phragms for the 2447s I have. Let me know what return shipping is.

Thx again!

A couple of PicoWreckers would work fine. The design work is done and it's an easy build. It uses a cheap Alpine 10" driver. In a small space 150 wpch will be fine.

I remember reading that a while ago. I think it is gross hyperbole. The notion that they are fragile is at odds with the whole VerTec design philosophy. I don't think JBL Pro is that blind to the...

Hey Rob-
I am happy to pay the return shipping once testing is complete. You shouldn't have to shoulder the cost.

Another option to get coated Ti (SL) phragms is to buy 2447, 2451 or 2452 and then install the SL phragms into them (the 2445/46/50 are 2" exit). The phragms are roughly $180. I paid $150 for my...

I remember them as being used, off of eBay, not new. New these are like $1500. I don't think JBL would let any go that tested out of spec.

The ones I bought came from the Veretc 4889. It uses 3...
