Watched two movies with the JBLs last night. Dialogue at the lowest volume levels around 75db was clear and easily discernable. I've never heard such clarity with dialogue at such a low volume level. Felt as if someone was whispering the dialogue directly into my ears on the couch. When I laid on the volume abit up to 110db the dialogue easily enveloped the entire condo. You can hear words uber clear no matter if I was two rooms down, in the backyard, or upstairs in the kitchen.
Dynamics with cinema speakers are unreal. I feel like I'm in the middle of an IMAX once these speakers get over 100db. I can feel the midbass in my chest at higher volume levels and it shakes my couch, walls, floorboards, pipes, dishes upstairs etc. With them breaking in the midbass is becoming even more immense.
Bass in full range mode is now overwhelming so I put them on a 40hz crossover which sounds great. Bass is tight and deep. I paired them with a single SI 24 for the second movie and they sound astounding together. Good highs and smooth lows which can easily crush a large room or gently massage it with waves of tight, low bass.
I'm very impressed with these speakers thus far. Now I'm wondering what an upgrade with the CD would do as expressed in the aforementioned post by Kingpin. I believe this speaker has the large 3" titanium diaphragm. So would the next step up be the 4" premium CD contained in the 5732? Or would that not fit the horn for the 4722n?
I can now see why some people state once you hear large cinema speakers in a home environment, other speakers sound like toys. The soundstage, midbass, and razor sharp dialogue is something I've never experienced with any home speaker or PA speaker. I'm never going back to any non-cinema speaker again that is for sure.
