Dufus, over all I like them better. The Revel is a very good speaker but I think my build is a little more transparent, I prefer the tweeter beeing more refined, the woofer can move more air due to its size. The Revel are more picky on amplifier, it seems like they need a very powerful amp to control 100% or something, I have heard them with big Mark Levinsons and they worked better but who can buy such expensive amps? Tired2way is easier to handle. If I have something negative to say it would be that the lowest bass is a bit soft, I have heard speakers that are better in that respect, but it is no big concern to me. Over all a very detailed and nice sounding speaker. Maybe the Revel gives a bigger soundstage but I am not sure of that. I think you can say + and - all day but in the end it is what speakers you prefer as a whole that matters.

Your Revel had exemplary lab performance I see if it was that exact model?

Yes it is that model, Revel Performa M20. One thing I have noticed is that with some music it can be a bit unfriendly to the ears, and with the Tired2way it is more relaxed. Do you have an idea what this might be, Salas?

I'm going to build the Tired 2 Way as well.

I got wood, and will be begining my build soon. I can post pics here as I make progress. This is documented so well, hopefully I won't have too many questions, but I am hoping that you can advise me if I do end up with questions, since you have recently completed the same build.

I already have a question about the cross-over. Refer to C1 in below, is that supposed to say 4.7u ??

I have this information:

Woofer = SEAS CA22RNY
Tweeter = Peerless HDS
L1 = 2.5mH (2mm d. wire)
L2 = 0.25mH (1mm d. wire)
L3 = 1mH (1mm d. wire)
C1= 4u7//u68 PP high quality
C2 =10u//2u2 PP high quality
C3 =33u NP//0.22uF PP high quality
R1 = 3R9 10W Mills R3 = 15R 10W Cement
No polarity inversion nowhere. All inductors air core.


Thanks,

AlexQS

The paper cone and cloth tweeter and/or the house curve I would guess. The Tired has a bit of a BBC tilt.
