Hi echarlie,

Here is the response I got from Dr. Hsu:

4 ohm tap will be a bit more accurate (lower output impedance), but the system will probably play a bit louder with the 8 ohm tap, and the 8...

Hi echarlie,

We've had some people use the HB-1 MK2 with tube amplifiers with good results. I'd say it is certainly worth trying out! And when used with a nice true subwoofer, one will get good...

Hi Orochi,

Hi Stegen,

What model Jamo towers do you have?

The HB-1 MK2 is a nice speaker. It may not play quite as deep as most tower speakers, but deep bass extension is not required since you already...

Hi Bsimmons,

In my opinion, use of a high pass filter should not degrade the sound quality of the HB-1 MK2. In fact, by relieving the HB-1's of deep bass duties, there should be lower distortion,...

Hi Bill,

For pipe organ music, I would run the subwoofer with 1 port plugged. Then you can experiment with EQ1 vs. EQ2 and high Q vs. low Q to get a more deep bass heavy or less deep bass heavy...

Cool. No doubt that one port plugged will give the deepest bass possible. And moving from a single to multiple subs will be icing on the cake :)
