frankly - only heard derivative of it - biggest Tannoys like that - monitors of yore

other big buzzin woofs I had opportunity to hear , were working almost at treshold of pain

or maybe even louder , but I was toxicated anyway

Everything i read about the jbl 4355 was that they were loud. Who gives a s^$% about loud. Loud is easy and pointless, unless your in a monster room or big field. I just thought it my be interesting for dynamic impact, but not if you give up detail and delicacy in return. Would help match better with horn from efficiency standpoint. Two 416's under the 290 Iwata might be interesting. Gotta a Iwata derivative I am working on using LeCLeach spreadsheet. I think it might be the only one. That probably only means they will suck

Better overall than singles because they are more focused horizontally and less so vertically, blending better to a large ~90 x 40 horn.

What do you expect? JBL = Just Big & Loud.

That's pretty good. Never heard it before.

So, when they speak of the jbl 4355 having not so great imaging, do you think it is related to the fact that the horn and midrange are in the middle of a very large baffle.
Barring the 515's, what do you thin about dual 416's under the 290 Iwata. It is basically a 90 horn in the horizontal plane.

I know nothing about the 4355, just what I know from experience after auditioning a pair of Lagunas and later a pair of 9844s, though for sure you can't use as high an XO point as you can with a single or vertically oriented dual woofers: http://www.hifilit.com/hifilit/Altec/1959-h.jpg

Whre do you find this stuff? That is clearly re-branded Altec/GPA. I am probably looking at 9-10ft^3 for my woofer and will go a little taller as well, as the Iwata is not as big vertically. Thanks for the info.
