However it is more commonly used to refer exclusively to two-channel systems.....A "stereo" sometimes refers to a sound system set up in a way that will play a stereo recording or broadcast. Caution should be used with this reference, however as it should not be used to describe a 5 channel (or more) home theater or home cinema system, as such systems are not 2 channel, and thus not "stereo".

Navin, your knowledge of car audio and electronics never ceases to amaze me!!

guys i have not even tried to spill data. I have been restraining myself (partly becuse of time and partly becuase I dont want ot scare everyone off this fourm or get booted off myself). so trust me one (much subdued and married) Navin is about all you guys can handle. When I was single I was seriously off the wall. Think about it Sam I had 2 JBL 2245 for Bass reinforcement of my "Home Stereo" system.

For those that are wondering what that statement means...
The 2245 is used on the dance floor at the Ministry of sound, London and Ibiza.
Navin used to use it at home when he was younger.

This has led to his singular mental condition called "Navinitis"

And he isnt deaf yet? Or is that why he prefers the written word (as do you, for that matter) ?

Thank you, but I'd prefer to read - at least one can read at leisure...

You have, and thank you. And I'm not particularly fond of Rod Stewart.

I used 2 of them! one per channel
Actually the woofers were enclosed boxes from JBL called te B460.

BTW what is the Ministry of Sound? a pub? dance place? Serious. My nephew is travelling so I wont knwo till he gets back (2 weeks) unless you guys bring me up to speed.

My midbass drivers were 4 Focal 8N515s (2 per channel) and the tweeter was a modfidied version of the Morel MDT33. Modified because this was the start of my experiments with ferro fluid or rather without ferro fluid. as explained on another thread.

Power amps were my own.

today the B460s are gone. replaced with dual DV12s from Audio Concepts. the DV12 was the DVC version of the SV12 now built into their Titan sub.

the 8N515s are also gone. gifted to my BIL along with an Audax HM170Z0. replaced by ScanSpeak 18w8546s.

the MDT33 also gifted to my BIL was replaced by the ScanSpeak 9900 Revelators.

Today I am looking at Jordan JX92. I find as i get older m systems get smaller. m needs of SPLs are gone. My marshall amps are in moth*****. My Strat and DiMarzio are with a friend.

Now dont as me what a DiMarzio is. That would involve a chapter in guitar technology.

This is what i know. As you all know I hate googling.

Oh boy. How can you not know what the ministry of sound is? The ministry is a club set up in central london, originally set up as a dance club with sound overkill.
Choosing to go for JBL concert level sounds, they put up 6 stacks, 3 ways all surrounding the central dance floor. based on the original UK warehouse partying concept...
(this is where 5000 crazy britons would hire a warehouse and dance all night to drum and bass and garage sounds)
It soon became a cult phenomemon and gave up it's raw appeal for sophistication. paving the way for typical british culbs such as miss moneypenny's, manumission and plenty more.
The ministry got bigger as it had the best DJ's and the best guest DJ's too. Boy George (yes the same one), judge jules, carl cox, PaulOakenfold, PVD and many more industry gods.
They started selling cd's of the live mixes, made a lot of money then they started selling compilations of vatious kinds of club music etc etc
Opened a branch in Ibiza and stands as a phenomenon. Do a search Old man, and I'm sure you'll find lots more and some corrections on what I know.
You get MOS bags, tee shirts, condoms, cards and what not!!!
We're of course very proud of the MOS because of the sound. (100% JBL)

Even if it's not your scene, one should go there to feed off the totally RAW energy one experiences there.
