Default Some tweeter tests

Hi guys. I've been doing some tweeter testing-if you're interested the results are here.

Hope you find it helpful.

I've updated my pages with some tests on the xt19, ow2, and mdt30.

Why will you test OWII over the OWI?
Any plans to do some Thiel/Accuton og good ribbon stuff?
SS9700 should be a killer, but beware of nasty breakup at 20kHz+. Apart from that, it's just great. Cannot compare to Hiquphon or Thiel in dispersion though.. None of the SS can..

Good stuff! A rare combination of clear explanations and data in one place. Thanks!

Rocky,

I actually have a set of ow1's-but they're not that convenient to get to. Based on the ow2 measurement, I can almost guess how the ow1 will look-same dispersion, same nonlinear distortion, and likely slightly better linear distortion.

I have a set of C44's, but no accuton tweeters. Unless I come across a set, I don't think I'll be testing any in the near term. The c44's will come as part of a mid test later.

A ribbon test is coming in the next month or so. The problem with the ribbons is I have to make a baffle for each one.

ribbons-I've got AC g2si, R1(1rst generation) philips rt8p, BG?8(I can't recall-it's a loaner)

Mark,

See that the Vifa xt19 performs very well, but how about soundwise ? I am just about to order one ...

Hi Zozo,

Well, I haven't put anything together with the xt19 yet, so I don't have an answer. I've heard a number of xt25 systems, and did think they sounded good, though I did notice ? the directivity.

Mark

I have the option to choose between the standard XT19TD00 with no ferrofluid and the double magneted XT19BD01 variant with ferrofluid.
I know that you haven't tested the second one, but from your past experience which one would you take ? Some people are saying that ferrofluid kills microdetail.
The price is almost the same, btw.

Zozo
