    As an aside, didn't you make a clone version of Everests, or such like, with twin 15" drivers? I seem to recall you did, and played Ian "Madame Medusa', by UB40, which rearranged his intestines to such a degree, that they've never been the same since!!

    On your 'JBL travels', as it were, have you ever encountered the Hartsfields? These are from 1955, and tick the retro box for me, big time, as well as sounding superb:



    Even on crappy computer speakers, I can almost feel the bass!! Must watch that video through the home-cinema system




    Check both vids out, as it shows they can 'boogie', as well as sounding shockingly real!

    Marco, do you happen to know the music in the second clip? I really dig it!

    Sorry David, I'm not sure. Could be some Dizzy Gillespie

    I'd copy the link to the clip and ask in the music room.
