The phase plug on a ring radiator does not move, and on the XT series are quite sturdy.

Best,

This is fantastic info, coincidentally. I'm going to be using that XT Peerless as soon as I can get hold of them.

Glad to be of service, Mrcloc, that tweet has it's fans.

A recent discussion here compared it to their ScanSpeak equivalent, and I think the consensus was the SS was a little better made with a little less distortion and a little more output.

Best,

E

Fantastic, thanks. I'm buying from Parts Express, but the SS isn't available there. I'll make up a cart at Madisound and compare the costs, because I believe I can get all my stuff there, as well as the SS. But I like the look of the Peerless because I'm using a Visaton W170S, so the 5-screw drill pattern matches well.

ETA: I see the SS also has 5 holes, but it's almost double the price, and for that reason, I'm out.

Be careful that you don't substitute my measurements with either the SS or another version of the XT25. The measurements in the LM-1/LM-1C are for the XT25BG only.

If you use a smoother mid-woofer you can get away with the single-magnet version of either brand. The FaitalPRO 5FE120 for instance will get you up into a 3-4kHz crossover area. Also has better power handling than the Peerless I used.

Best,

E

The one I'm going with is the XT25BG60-04. I need to cross it at 1.8 - 2 kHz. Unfortunately I have limited resources, and built speakers which only need the tweeters to be upgraded. They're already excellent, but they'll be better with better tweeters.

As for mid-woofers, what do you think of the Dayton Audio RS150P? I have my eye on that for any future builds.

Oh, sorry Mrcloc, if you need tweets for an upgrade, the XT25BG60s are the way to go.

No idea about DA woofers, but I'm sure others have opinions.

Best,

E
