Since the low end was updated it seemed only fair to take care of the rest of the speakers as well, i.e the mid and high frequencies.

And why not go all out hornloaded in the process you ask, well i concur, why not.

So let's borrow the mid horn device from the turbosound TMS range and pair it up with the 2386 40X20 deg 2" dispersion high range horn from JBL, and what do you get ?



The drivers are B&C (as allways), in this case it's the familiar 10MD26 / DE75P combination found in my (previous?) top system.

The result was another one of those "laughing-out-loud-I-can't-believe-it" moments, and that was only the quick & dirty test result, now all i need is another channel...



Looking at the how the two horn sections of each top speaker stack up it is easy to see why i went for the larger JBL horn, the dispersion angles are nearly identical, at least to the eye.



They sure knew what they where doing those guys at turbosound, the sound quality at the '95 Pink Floyd Pulse concert stands testament to that, now i have the same stuff at home, although be it in a much, much smaller scale.



Now it's time to take measurements, analyze, and program the DBX driverack unit accordingly, my guess is that this will turn out very well indeed.

Quick messurements shows that the sensitivity should be in the 108dB/W/m range, the response should be within 4dB from 200Hz to 16kHz, and the sound is simply amazing.

Not bad at all...
