Just reminding you that you'll have to use a super tweeter with the 207e. No crossover for the fullrange, just a single capacitor for the tweeter.

You don't have to use a supertweeter with the FE207E, as I feel is rather well demonstrated by Bob's FB-20 and FT-2000 FT-2000

While it does roll off above ~12KHz, esp. off axis, that's not necessarily such a bad thing as it keeps things smooth over extended periods, & it does still make 20KHz on-axis at about -6dB, give or take. If you want that extra HF energy, then yes, adding a supertweeter is beneficial, but it's certainly far from being a requirement, period.

I play some heavy-metal so i might use a supertweeter. What do you recommend ( up to 100$ the pair , or maybe only a bit higher ).

If you want to keep in the Fostex line, that budget pretty much restricts you to the FT17H

of course, the FT96H is a much prettier unit, and in all likelihood "sounds better", but I just have trouble spending more money on the last octave or so (depending on just where you decide to XO) than for the 8 or 9 preceding

FT17H as Chris said.

You won't find a great deal of information above 10KHz in most metal & what harmonics there are will likely be crushed into an unintelligable mush by the massive compression metal albums are usually subjected to these days. Tragically. The remastered Iron Maiden albums for e.g. are an insult to the material, and the group, and their listeners.

for an interesting take on "acoustic metal?" - actually these two are a little hard to classify , have you tried

Rodrigo y Gabriela

worth the price alone for STH and Orion, and not insulting to this general non fan of the genre

apparently available on vinyl as well

A definitive statement, coming from perhaps the World's Leading Authority on the subject!

I've never seen a purple cow,

And hope to never see one.

But I'd rather see a purple cow,

Than be one!
