My question is why would you guys think or would question wether it WOULDN'T work with horns etc? Andy, correct me if where I'm wrong...but the MS-8 isn't going to know if you have horns, tweets, domes, cones whatever ...it's going to "hear" whatever the output is and work from there....that's one of the aspects of this processor I find so different from we're all used to (one of many)....we're used to telling a processor what to do and then listening to whatever output we get and adjusting from there....the MS to me is different in that it "listens" to our output and adjusts upstream to get the results it or we want...to me that's totally fresh thinking and why I say this processor is so different from everything we're all used to.

I don't know if that came out right, did that make sense Andy and anyone else?

Well, my question is more along the line of crossover points and slopes. Can/will it have completely adjustable xover points??? what about slopes. Forgive me for not knowing as much about this unit, it finally slowed down here and i have a lot of products to catch up on. Let me research it some more on my own, and i'll post specifics later.

J, check out Andy's first post on the first page of this monster thread...here's what he said about the x-overs


"The electronic crossover that's built in is fully configurable. You can assign any channel to be anything and it includes an EZ setup mode and an advanced mode. In EZ setup, you tell each channel the speaker location (front right, for example), then you tell it what speaker is connected (6" full-range). It sets the crossover point. In advanced mode, you tell the channel the location (right front) and then assign a filter type (HP, LP, BP) and then you set the filter frequency (you can assign any value between 20 at 20kHz) and the slope (1st-4th order)."

Sorry Andy and Jason. Just can't wait to get hold of one of these. Andy, when and where is the JBL BMW making appearances?
Also how would u compare the MS-8 to the use of the rane 30 band processors. Is this something that could replace them?

A 30-band graphic EQ is a garden hoe in comparison to the nuclear-powered rototiller that is MS-8. Plus, anyone can tune with MS-8, tuning with a manual EQ of any kind requires some expertise. Additionally, every output channel of MS-8 has a separate EQ. You'd need 4 stereo 31 band EQ's to do that and it still wouldn't sound as good. Finally, once MS-8 has done its tuning, we give you a tool that looks like a 31-band EQ to make some fine adjustments.

To me this is the greatest achievement I've noticed in my limited MS8 exposure. The tuning algorithm will make a tuning neophyte a tuning pro as soon as they run the setup.
