Not nosy at all. I had a momentary lapse of judgement, then I quickly came to my senses They are not for sale anymore, but can't take the ad down. If I was to upgrade, it would likely be to change the narrower JBL 2384 waveguide pattern from 90 x 50 degrees to say a JBL M2 waveguide with it's 120 x 110 pattern. Or perhaps an Earl Geddes design 90 degree OSWG design I have been eyeing over at diyAudio.
One of the reasons I am able to achieve a flatter response is due to being an active 3 way system. I can individually tailor the output level to each driver to better match the end target, so less correction is applied.
Good to hear that even a pro-expert like yourself sometimes struggles with the upgrade-ites virus.Not nosy at all. I had a momentary lapse of judgement, then I quickly came to my senses
@mitchco Mitch Barnett recently launched his Accurate Sound Calibration Service. Mitch has been a great teacher to many. Mitch is a DSP, low frequency optimization and active loudspeaker enthusiast and evangelist. Mitch has written extensively on this topic which includes a complete guide in book format. For many years, Mitch has helped me with various technical questions on both hardware and different software like REW, Acourate and Audiolense. I believe Mitch will help many more folks in the future. Mitch's service is applicable to anyone in search of the best possible playback either at home or in the professional environment.
@mitchco has helped me remotely with measurements and corrections, and I'm so glad I asked him to. I'm listening to my new sound and enjoying it like never before!
If you are planning to do some room correction, I can give my warmest recommendation to let him assist you. Great work, great support!
My experience was similar. I used Mitchco's service to adjust new speakers to the room or vise versa. With his help my new speakers sound more focused and with cleaner,tighter bass. I opted for the target curve that Mr Toole would say is preferred by the untrained ear. The flatter curves sound bass shy to me.
I must confess that I am a bit of a Luddite when it comes to anything more involved than basic computer applications. Mitch was extremely patient and walked me, at my slow pace, through the process with Roon and Audiolense. The unintended benefit is my new knowledge of using REW, Roon and Audiolense.
Highly recommended A+
