I was with Dgage when he ate his first Three Way from Skyline chili as he was bringing hit JTR 212 speakers over last year to take some measurements in my room. I happened to capture the moment on camera:

Between those and my Dual DTS-10s it created a baffle wall, no gaps across my front stage.

Slightly off topic I know but I am intrigued by the MDF rear enclosures you built for the 165H mid drivers. Was there any special formula used to work out the enclosure size that you needed....or was it more about just sealing them air tight? Thanks.

Just sealed them and gave the MF horn something the HF horn can bolt to. IMHO I would rather have that HF/MF with a single 2035 or 2226 than without the MF and dual 15s. Now my 4675s were even better IMHO just ended up too big for the subs I have now which was my goal. I never missed that HF sizzle too much and that very big vocal presentation was awesome.

I think the speaker is 80 inches tall with that, my ceilings are 68 inches, 66 with the acoustic panels.

As somebody on the somewhat same insanity level as yourself, I have considered the 3xxx series several times. The main "concern" for me is the height of the speaker in my room (specificaly the CD driver that sits on top). The 3732 is about 2 feet taller than the 4722. The 4722 CD height is perfect for my room...right at ear height. I only have one row of seats and they are not elevated off the ground. So I think one of the biggest drawbacks for an HT setting is the CD in the 3732 might be too high for ideal state unless your seats are elevated and on a riser. Thoughts?

BTW, I am honestly not considering making the change. The 4722s with the 2453H SL compression driver is butter. Just fun to discuss

My configuration would definitely NOT allow me to go this route.....unless I changed the subs and redesigned my whole wall. AKA...NOT HAPPENING.

On another note, I watched the opening sequence of Deadpool today. The audio is on the same level as John Wick when it comes to mid bass and LFE. It is a nice alternative to not being able to enjoy it in ATMOS at this time.

I'd think the HF section would still be too high

If I had the spare cash, I would buy a Model 5641 LF unit (from the 3731) and add the 5732M/HF unit. Would have to reduce the M/HF to offset not having double woofers but other than that the 5732 DSP settings are readily available. Can purchase each unit from multiple vendors. Would be nearly foot shorter than the stock 5732 and has top flight drivers so no need to roll your own (except if you wanted to add Be).

Yeah, single 15" L/F section as you mention..


http://www.jblpro.com/www/products/c...1#.Vz5Bdblf3mI


....or a dual on its side like this......post no. 172 in the thread shows Greg's pics


https://www.avsforum.com/forum/155-di...r-build-6.html


....while paying attention to what LTD02 says above in his post (with diagrams) about the L/F cabinet design of dual 15's placed horizontally.


Perhaps a single 15" L/F would be simpler when contemplating a 373X for home use.

I don't see the advantage of a 3732. Per the JBL spec sheets the 3732 has a "Rated Maxium SPL" of 125 dB, as compared to the 4722's 130dB. Also, more importantly, the 4722 seems to have better directivity characteristics.

I am not changing either. It was more of an exercise if it would work or not. It isn't feasible due to size, and I just don't want to go active amps

You are not allowed to use serious logic in this thread, it's against the rules. Please refrain from future violations, and if so feel the urge to post try to keep the logic and science and posting of performance graphs to threads like the M2 thread so it doesn't take this thread off topic.

Thanks,

Exactly correct Scott! Just because the M2 measures best by JBL does not mean everyone prefers them, and not everyone does. Knowing the JBL sound I would most likely prefer them but just because I might does not mean everyone else is wrong.

YES!!!!! Got them in. Set them up. Immediately took a measurement. Put on 1/2 a song and it was time to put kids to bed. Had to work late tonight and have guests so I won't be able to test everything out until Sunday. Hopefully! I can tell midbass is much improved. Also I can tell the HF is a little hot with music. Just like you guys said. I need to calibrate the whole system and post pictures and measurements. Hope to do this Sunday. Surprisingly the 1099 measured very close to the 4722 with the big difference being right at the 100hz level, which apparently I am sensitive to. I will post everything soon. As has been stated many times (and I didn't believe) these things are really big. My wife's word was "ridiculous". The delivery guy was very confused as to why I needed 50 pounds of speakers in my house....
