wakooyank

you are going to use 600W speaker for home , with 25W amp ?

don't cry later that no-one told ya .......

those JBL's are killer in humpingjumping place , but for home you need something more agile

515B is faster than manymany mid drivers ....... and 416 isn't far from that

wakooserb,

As I've mentioned to the buzzdude...

416 = better bass
515 = better vocals

Call Bill H. and ask what he would do. I hear the new drivers from GPA are good.

The 3154 and 3156 seem to show promise depending on what you want to do.

Ah crap Got that out of the way. just caus eit can do 600W, doesnt mean it has too....unless you are saying it wants to be pushed that hard. Could always put speaks int he window and listen outside 515 is enticing, but is $1000. 414 is chcepaer, but nobody really pushes them much and I really want to do the big thing. CAl, you suggested a guitar version of Altec speaker as possibly having best mids. Some bouys on jbl forum also have a tendency to lean towards guitar speaks. K140, K130, E145. Of these, K130 seems to be most nimble based on specs. E145 has very good rep as being fast,crisp, and articulate. Any experience. THis is both horrible and wonderful. I wonder if I could sell......
