Yesterday I found the time to add some Audax TW025M1 tweeters to the rear of my OB's. I ran them with a 0.47 uF cap (same as the front firing tweeters), and with an adjustable attenuator to control their output.

After a bit of adjustment of the attenuators I was quite impressed with what I heard. I wouldn't say the sound stage is larger but it is better 'filled out'. There appears to be more detail, but not sharper and isolated, more like detail within detail.

Strangely it doesn't sound as if it has so much clarity, and yet tiny details are easier to hear.

I like to use Q-sound effects to see what has changed when I make a tweak (particularly with speakers), and the ones on 'Amused to Death (Roger Waters) did appear to be slightly more well defined, and slightly more projected out into the listening space. On 'Wish You Were Here' (Pink Floyd) I noticed some Q-sound effects that before I wasn't sure if they actually were Q-sound or not.

I don't know if this can be bettered, or if it I will still like it so much in a week's time, but for now I give it a thumbs up. It will do me until such time as I can find some more of the Realistic/Fostex tweeters. For the outlay and effort, it's certainly been worth trying.

And thanks for all the advice.
The truth need not be veiled, for it veils itself from the eyes of the ignorant.
