The Dwight airport (CNF8) is going to be a bit tight for your Lear, your are going to have to use the Muskoka airport (CYQA). If would be great if you could drop by, AND you can save the shipping on those new EP600s; it is all upside to get that Lear!

Back to the original question, the audio / video switch is what we used to call today's boost switch. The video mode has the boost on.

(but then again a super yacht's cost of ownership ain't cheap either)

I think the best I can do is drive my 41 year old bLuLu a few thousand miles to Dwight. Second best is to drive my 14 year old Mazda.

Audio rich, transport poor ... at least you have your priorities right ...

LOL... the first search hit I got for CNF8 was an advertisement for private jet charter with what appear to be auto-generated web pages for every airport in the world.

The associated photo shows a business jet, paved runways, and what is presumably a couple of happy passengers (or maybe a happy flight crew, not sure).

https://www.flyvictor.com/en-gb/private-jet-airports/dwight-airport-cnf8/#/

It's worth looking up the airport on Google Maps. You have to zoom out a bit to see the runways, but its a winter shot and makes it look like the airport is in the middle of a big ski area.

Its a grass field airport ... had a look when Ian mentioned it.
Reminded me of the field I used during a 3 week course in glider flight (ancient history think late 70s)

Rich, are you happy with your 600v4? Everyone else happy? I'm planning to upgrade my two 500s, that are flanking the actives and fed by the DSPs, to 600s (below).

How many other sealed subs reach 12Hz anechoically? I know of only two others and one is the 800v4.

I think the JTR Captivator is the only other sub on the market, that can do such frequencies. Mind you that is a 15 or18 incher.
Would another 800 be enough for your needs/wants?
