Default ATC mid dome and ribbon tweeter

hi ,

i am using ATC mid with OWII tweeter in active 3way setup, thats pretty good combination , but sound from tweeter is a bit too harsh and colorated , so i thought maybe ribbon is the ONE here . LCY 110 looks like a good candidate , but dome mid and dome tweeter are perfect match (at least in theory) and I am not sure about dome mid + ribbon tweeter combination . Is there any experiencie about using any ribbon with ATC dome mid ?
to ribbon or not ribbon thats the question....

I hear alot of great things about the mid fron ATC, how would it compare to Seas excel mid/woofers?

The ATC website didnt have a FR plot for the 150

also the AC G2 has a little bit closer sensitivity to the ATC mid, not sure if that matters, also 16 ohm on the ATC mid? that has got to make for a complicated xo

sorry for jacking you post. ill stop now

yea it's not fun... I also would choose a nicer ribbon like an LCY 130 to mate with a ATC

Heresay. Brave enough to send em to Mark K for testing?

A large frame, limited bandwidth and high cost.
