The Flat series are warmer sounding, more rolled off... more musical as some woud say. The Beta because of it more powerful magnets are faster more detailed, better highs, more transparent but can be very analytical if paired with the wrong equipment. Both series are excellent drivers , synergy with rest of equipment and listening taste is very important.

As there's no crossover, it's just a spk wire from fullranger to spk binding post... I've friends who want to eliminate another lump of metal(spk binding post) in th signal path, so it just spk wire connecting the fullranger out through the spk ports then all the way to amplifer. I've used thin cotton blankets to pad all internal surfaces , seems to work well enough.
