And gentlemen, he heard some country-western music, some jazz and a sheffield drum track. All with the subwoofer off.

Looks like we don't know everything about low_bass_makker.

Now can we return to car audio? please?

My only point was that he cannot be listening to Array of speakers if 500K Mark Levinson CD player is the source . I thought he is listing 16L for pair of speakers. Anyways back to car audio.

LBM-Bhai (no refreence to the "Bhais" in and around the UAE) Sam is grinnign and so am I. We have twisted minds. We are sick. Forgive us.

BTW it is guitar pick or plectrum. Now if you can tell if the plectrum is nylon, steel, or plastic you will have heard real resolution. I have "been there" but on so seldom an occasion that my heart stops when I go there again (usually by accident).

First time was in a recording studio in 1968. Dad took me to a friend who had a 24 channel mixer etc and I heard what I never had heard on Dad's old Philips 7" and Akai 10" spools. You never forget your first time.

Then in 1969-70 my aunt (over several trips form the US) got me a Garrad turntable, Avery Fisher TX100 amp and AR 2ax (3 way) loud speakers. It was magic. I was hooked. First DIY thing I did was replace the L pads on the speakers wth resistors, then came experments with tone arms and then in 1972 I built my first amp. I guess I was born mad, dont blame my parents. They were nice, they tolerated me.

Then I visited the US in 1976 (bi centinenial year) and at a uncle's house in cancada I heard a pair of Dahlquist DQ-10. We (maybe I got my mad genes from him) modified the DQ10s using a KEF B200 bextrene cone 8" midwoofer and a Audax P12.... 5" cone mid. Electronics were a AR turntable (yes they made turntables) and a Bryston 4B prototype built by ( I assume partially) Chris Russell himself. That was the second time I heard magic. My uncle is long gone but I was "incurably infected" by now.

When I got back to India I made 2 pairs of speakers (Volt, Philips, etc). One was magic, the other not. and the list goes on.

LBM, Rs. 5,000 for the JBL 60.4 gray. The 75.4 he said used to sell at 8,000 till the shortage creeped in.

I'd just like to clarify 2 things

1) The shortage is over
2) There are some very interesting developments in this segment.

That is all I am allowed to say for now.
