I'm signing up for online audio forums left and right now that the live audio business is taking an enforced break. I had no idea that there is a forum specific to the DC area however. Probably says something about the regional income pattern. ;-) I've been a live sound tech for 40 plus years and got my start working as an installer and bench technician for Myer Emco. Worse yet have an interest in old JBL speakers as time suck, err hobby. Good to meet the local virtual hifi crowd.

Welcome Riley,
I have also done live sound for many years, Gospel Music primarily, and your interest in vintage JBL is not surprising. 99.99% of home music systems have very poor micro and macro dynamics, and those of us who experience live sound on a regular basis have a hard time accepting this limitation in our home systems. We all deal with it in different ways, which makes for an interesting and informative dialogue IMHO.

Bruce.

Welcome to the group. It extends not only in different paths to get to good sound but also to areas outside of the DC region. Some of us live outside the area but find the ideas expressed very enlightening.

Hey Riley, I recognize you from LH forum. Are you friends with John at Scavenger Sound in Glen Burnie?
