rear firing tweeter - why?
What's the logic behind a rear firing tweeter like Wilson uses?

I donít know why the Wilsons use them, but in general, one of the reasons for using a rear firing tweeter is to even out the acoustic power output in a reverberant room in the speakers upper octaves.

/David Letterman's top 10 list


10. To confuse consumers.
9. So your walls can hear music too.
8. To bounce high frequency waves back to you.
7. To increase the prices of the product by 50%.

Dang, I ran out of steam, anyone?

I'll leave no 1 open for you Thylanter
6. to keep other tweeters from creeping up on them from behind
5. makes the crossover stay in line
4. both tweeters can then do kinky things with the mids
3. under certain conditions the plotted phase patterns of both tweeters combined will predict the stock market
2. so you can cruise audio departments at Best Buy, Tweeters and Circuit City and let it it drop in casual conversation.

:D :D

I'l leave number one open for you since you started it thylanter
