In the back pages of one of the issues I found an ad for The Johnson Smith & Co. Their catalog was a favorite of mine as a child.
I would like to know if this design has any merit. Its different.Maybe suitable for radian coax. By strange coincidence I have seen 2 different mint pairs of jbl diffusers sell on ebay Australia this week. Thanks for the links ZobSky
It's far too small to work well. In the same size box reflex would get a much better result, and with no front/rear wave phase dip.
Yea I was dreaming Bill sorry. Did you see the monster further down? again its just a rear load so ultimately pointless no matter how ideal. I am more interested in the diffusers and what Merritt they might have. Very little too I guess. I remember with my first set of decent speakers I had and stupidly sold. JBL S8r's the 375 with the short conical was horrid sounding. I can imagine the only reason jbl ever made the compromise was keeping the horn length down. But when you put the diffuser on they sounded much more civilized. They where better balanced possibly only because the crossover was tweaked for them. But suddenly they imaged more and honked much much less. But never enough to be tolerable so I sold them thinking I would never be able to afford a decent set of horns. Wrong I have a set of decent jabo tratrix now I got for $350. Horns are cheaper then they where 10 years ago. Wish I still had my 375's to bolt on them! I picked up a single nos radian 950pb this week for $155 for a centre. If it sounds good I will save or sell all my hoarded stuff for a pair as they are so light and easy to use. neo mags must of brought a lot of relief to all the roadies out there.
