All this JBL talk made me break out the S38s from a forum member. First time hooking them up with bass management and my dual 12" subs, point blank like. What a fun setup. High-end, Schmi-end. JBL makes fun with taking a kick-ass speaker and put it in a mediocre cabinet and sell a million of them. This is that killer mid-bass thump and low enough distortion to where you keep pushing that volume cntrl.\n\nSteely Dan - Aja.
