The important thing is to work toward your goal and not let the obstacles hold you back. Imagine my wife's reaction when I told her we had to move a couch out of our living room so I could fit in the music system. Life was not bliss that week but you get through it.

The JBL 4612 pdf is a speaker that you can draw inspiration from.

It had very nice natural vocal tones with it's twin 8 mid-bass woofs and the biRadial tweeter.

Study the network in the pdf and notice one 8" runs fullrange while the other has a simple lowpass ( single coil ) on it.
The helper 8" ( with coil ) was there to extend the bottom end of the box ( which would be mid-heavy if one 8" was rolled off).

I think you should try something similar.

You know, if you put the bass cabinets on their sides they won't look that big to her.


My brother had a folded horn with an 18", JBL 10" mid bass (might be 12's can't remember) and horns in his sun room. Eventually stopped using the 18" out of respect for the neighbours.

That is interesting, I'll have to see how they perform when I get them.

I see. What blows me away is that the A7s look like bookshelf speaks compared to the monsters in the middle!!!

Just thinking of parts I would have to order. Is there a downside to either a 12 db compared with a 18 dB electronic crossover?

I thought most of them were higher than that, no?

I use these: CX2310 V2 | Crossovers | Signal Processors | Behringer | Categories | Music Tribe - Behringer)

They are 24dB. The steeper the slope the better the tweeter protection.
