Hi all!

I'm new to the forum as I just discovered it. I was searching for some information on Zetag/Kinima speakers when I found an old thread about the Hi G4 drivers. A while ago I bought drivers from the Hi G1 series speakers from someone on the net. I was told that the woofers were especially good. I spoke to Graham and had the x-over parts sent to me with schematics which was a 2 1/2 way design and put them together in cabinets similar to the G-3 series since I used two 6 1/2" and 1 tweeter in each cabinet. The sound from that set up was disapointing at best, almost no high end. I installed a x-over I got from the person I bought the drivers from, which is a two way system with the two 6 1/2s tied together modelled after the Wilson Cubs and changed the tweeters to Focal TD90s. They sound better definitely, but still not what I think they should sound like at all. Any suggestions?

Thanks to anyone for suggestions.

I suggest you post the schematic you're using and the parameters of the drivers, otherwise any response can only be an uninformed guess....
Impedance varies with frequency, use impedance plots of your drivers and make crossover calculations using the actual impedance of the driver at the crossover frequency

Well unfortunately I don't have any T/S information on the Hi G1 woofers. That is kind of why I was hoping someone else had used these drivers and was able to get that information. I think at the time I talked to Graham, he said the cabinet size of the G3 would be fine. I also got x-overs from him, I think his son designed them. Anyway the speakers sounded pretty bad, that is why I went with a different x-over. They sound OK now, just not the clairity from the mid woofers I was expecting.
