If you have a DSP setup already and want maximum detail retreival, you might as well go for stiff metal cone drivers. Polypropylene and some doped 'lossy' paper drivers really lack detail

Something like SEAS 27TBCD as the tweeter and a metal midrange such as SB15NAC30-4 or maybe a SEAS excel magnesium cone

If you want 'enhanced' midrange you can go for a kevlar cone, but this just trades some detail for some more exciting midrange

I always liked the Vifa aluminum D25s! Would you like to sell me a pair?

Yes I agree with your philosophy on this. Thank you so much for your reply, it's a big help for my decisions!

Sure, no problem. Let me find them first. They're packed in one of the boxes.

Sorry for the delay. Just found them.

These two are brand new. I did A FR sweep on one of them so have solder on terminals. The other is unused.

I don't mind selling them for $75/pair + shipping.
