    Clone JBL 4345 build

    Recently got them home and have had them playing, far from finished but still sound like front row at a stadium or in a room with someone singing to me. Hired a Mitsubishi asx to pick the cabinets up, had to remove the plastic trim from the boot to fit them in! I'm in love although not everything sounds great, for the first time i now understand what people are talking about with a "good recording" or maybe the music just isn't suited to such revealing speakers. I've found my tannoy's (DC10ti) are far more flexible with the quality of music but these JBL's have it all at any volume never strained.

    Clone JBL 4345 build

    Thanks, probably next month or two I'll have them running. So excited and nervous!! I was thinking of replacing the diaphragm in the horns with fresh radian branded ones and genuine diaphragms in the 2405 as I'm unsure of their condition. I'll definitely wait until i get them running but i think I'll be questioning if they sound like they should probably even if they sound fine, what do you think?

    Clone JBL 4345 build

    Over the last two years I've been building myself with the help of Andrew @ Creation Audio for the cabinets some custom JBL 4345 clones. I build the crossovers myself and have learnt so much i don't think they would be the same if i started the project now as they have a couple of flaws although i probably won't know until i test them, as currently Andrew has heard the system in Sydney and I'll pick them up next week and drive them back to Melbourne. Speakers are 2405 slot tweeter 2426 cd with 2307 horn 2123 mid 2245 woofer with cones from edgewound All original jbl bits Except for the 2245 cones but i recently brought a B460 so now have two original 2245 cones in the house so I'll be keen to swap them out to hear the differences. So excited to hear your thoughts and put in some epic listening sessions with them very soon.

    And... They look exactly like the clones i had in my head, with the help of Andrew @ Creation Audio fabricating the cabinets.

    So it's been a little while but we're almost finished.

    I can't say i'm an audiophile, i relate my speaker collection to flowers; The mass' may appreciate a rose but i enjoy an orchid. I'm probably just a collector of electronics, beer and music. That being said i have only managed to amass a collection of CD/LP's and random selection of electronic equipment. I'm a huge fan of psytrance and most genre's of edm. Currently i am building a pair of clone JBL 4345 as i appreciate the huge sound they produce and will run my Audio Research SP-9 MKII for pre and Audio Research D400MKII on the upper section as they will be bi-amped and have cheap pro audio amplifier on the woofers until i buy an active XO and another new (new to me) amp. I look forward to engaging with all soon without the line "you could have brought XY&Z with that money".
