Hi jimbro,

I hope others will comment but personally I think you'll want something with a little more top end than the EL70. IMHO it is a well balanced unit meant to stand alone.

EL70 over CHP70 unless you have an amp that really needs calming down up top, EL70 vrs A6P, have both but haven't done a direct comparison. On paper A6P should have the edge for the given application (unless you want to cross real low or play real loud).

Are there different versions of it? The early pair I have are too sibilant for my tinnitus.

I'd crossover at 200 hz and see if I can get satisfactory performance using the Yamaha bass management. If not and I have to go with 'real' bi-amping, the xover would be around 300. I do occasionally listen loud but in a small room. Knowing me like I do I'll probably end up with both el70s and alpair6ps eventually. Need to keep watch though because, if I read Mark correctly, the el70s are limited to stock on hand and more won't be made without substantial requests.

Where did you read that? That would be a shame.

Not here. I guess Dave's treatment tames that tiger. I find them a little reserved at the top.
