Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

The challenge I found

with 70s era JBLs is running the midrange a good octave too high for consistent directivity. It causes a peculiar hour glass shaped soundstage perspective in terms of frequency: wide at bottom and top and shrunken in a critical range. I think they were intended for nearfield listening only.

Enjoy, but current versions corrected that anomaly.

BTW, the stands do look much nicer. :)
