Imaging specificity and micro-dynamics in the LX521 is significantly improved (high WOW factor) over the ORION -- hard to believe, but true.

Actually it's not that hard to believe.

Moving to a smaller diameter lower mass driver for the mids does this all the time.

4" driver with 4.5 grams of mms = better detail.

It's also in the range where it isn't "riding" the suspension or is otherwise overly damped. It would be even more detailed with a good foam surround and/or with greater efficiency.


Imagine what a design would be like with a similar low-mass small sd driver operated as a radial (..like the Pluto).



Zaph has some "companion" drivers to the fullrange that SL uses measured on his blog:

Zaph|Audio


Bearing in mind what I've stated above - consider what it would be like with Vifa TC7FD00-04 posted just below those drivers..
