Default 3 part stack

Electrostatic panels, atop Revelator in sealed cabinet, atop U Frame bass bins.
Incomplete veneering, was unsure it would sound as good as hoped.
Thanks, Dave.
There's a lot of free resize phone apps.

Default More hybridization

As long as I'm mixing and matching, I fixed a little lack of electrostatic resolution and dispersion, with a sealed back ribbon.
They cross about 10,000 hertz first order, and the amp powering them is actively crossed at 1200 hertz, 4th order.
I did try a dipole BG planar here, but the ribbons have some colouration I prefer. Also added a backfiring dome tweeter, but couldn't hear a difference, and took it out.
I don't have any way to measure these, but they sound less bright than just using a ribbon, at a 3000 hertz crossover, and are lots more resolving, on and off axis.
Quite a lot more complex than the simple setup I hoped would work on the long haul for me, I'd envisioned a U Frame sub with the 505 mini panels sitting on them.
I'm disappointed I couldn't get these to work as all open baffle, but the Revelators just don't sound as good that way, as they do sealed.
Bass, upper mids, and most of the treble are preserved as open back, however.

Default Front and back.

A little smoother than the ribbons, a neo3 seems as detailed as the Founteks, they just don't "stick out", I always hope for a speaker which is good, full range, never drawing attention to one frequency range, over others.
This is a small improvement, but I can't tell if it's a better tweeter, or a better match with its backless radiation pattern.
