Yeah, I thought the top end response was spectacular. Nothing I could ever hear, but I appreciate the reach of it.

Marce, I've eaten whale, and it's disgusting.

Question is: Would that tweeter work out of water?


From what I hear whale meat is supposed to be like a cross between venison and liver.
Never tried it myself though.

That's what I was wondering. Water has a vastly different acoustical impedance than air.

But here in "everything else" I'm sure the technical part of the discussion will fade in and out.

Wondering if there's any truth to the rumor that audiophiles are chewy and rubbery.

Piezo composite (For that is what it surely is) transducers do not match at all well to air, at least not without a massive amount of horn loading (Or something funky like some sort of flexture tensional device), and are not all that broadband without some fairly heroic matching networks which tend to cause the phase response to end up all over the shop.

Can you get audio out of them? Sure you can (And I have), but almost anything else is easier.

I would note that the ~160dB re 1uPa is actually deeply unimpressive as sonar transducers go and hints that there is a substantial resistor in the matching network to kill much of the Q.

Regards, Dan.

Soft and fluffy with a crunchy exterior, like a half baked meringue
