One amplifier chassis per speaker is what I would call a monobloc

Yep, every channel in the amplifier is mono (not stereo).

.  Are they still monobloc when there is on power supply box and one amplifier box per speaker?  I dunno.

 

It feels great.

 

Let me know when you get away from the Land of the Long White Cloud...I have vinyl withdrawals and need a fix...haha.  Seriously though, enjoy yourself.

.....So, 400 watts power draw to light up a combined total of 30w-33w of output power...yep, that's definitely Class A operation...haha.

Whats will the total power load be for the full system (400W X 2)  + ?

Yep.  I've already put extra solar panels on the roof to offset the expense...seriously.  Dac, preamp, turntable and a couple of computers will probably put the total power draw for the system to a bit over a kW.

      Item: JBL Everest horns + optional B&C DCM-50 drivers
      Location: Fitzroy North
      Price: $1300 for horns, $2100 for horns & drivers
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: time for new horn adventures
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      So several of us went down the path of building quasi-JBL Everest DD55000 clones. I love the Everest horns, largely because to me they don't sounds like horns in the sense that they don't have what i call horn colouration. Certainly the speakers shown are by far the best speakers I have ever had,
      and indeed are one of the best speakers I have ever heard. I have had a few get togethers here and it seems this view is shared by others.  
       
      So what is up for sale here are the JBL horns that are used for midrange.
       
      This pair is not the first pair up for sale on StereoNet, but in my opinion these are the best, because: (i) they are filled with crushed garnet, (ii) they come with supports for the compression driver, and (iii) they are spray painted a beautiful grey colour (they look better IRL than they do in these photos).
       
      Speaking of which, if someone wants to buy these horns, they have first dibs on the B&C DCM-50 compression drivers, which are a perfect match to the horns. They are in mint condition, and I am the original owner. I still have the original boxes (although they are under my house somewhere, and in any case they are simple cardboard boxes). See https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/249858-sold-fs-bc-dcm50-compression-drivers-2/ for more information on these amazing drivers.
