I spent the evening listening to some old music which ranged from The Doors (Riders on the Storm) to Styx (Man in the Wilderness; Castle Walls; Grand Illusion). Adding Boston to the mix created feelings of nostalgia that make me wish I were 23 again.
The point I'm wandering towards is that the system I currently listen to is primarily horn loaded. I have a pair of the 8 foot tapped subwoofer horns, a pair of paper mache high frequency horns loaded with JBL 2446 compression drivers, and 4 Eminence 12 Kappa Pro drivers in a pair of sealed enclosures (2 per). The Kappa's keep up--just barely.
This combination sounds fantastic up loud... my wife is out of town ;^) Old music sounds better than I remember on the older sound systems. Castle Walls has an organ bass note in the climax that will literally make your eyeballs rattle in their sockets. I smiled, then shouted "Hell yeah!" I'm so happy to have discovered audio.
