V2 could, but there will be no p-3 or diode pads, so they would have to be grafted on...for that matter, V3 could be done as well, but the other half of the output mosfets would have to be similarly "grafted on", along with the associated resistors and diodes.

Titanium dome tweeter - yuck! The worst!

My opinion: Avoid all modern speakers sold in Hi-fi shops these days, as all have small "punchy" bass drivers that suck *** and are just overpriced yuppy crap.

Buy antique! Seriously! Paper coned 3 way sealed enclosures with a 10" or 12" woofer, 5" mid. Rebuild the cross-overs. Replace the lousy tweeters = lush!

Alternatively, build an open baffle and get some paper cones on the go or a horn enclosure and go "full" frequency single drivers like Papa Pass himself.

My personal recommendation: Celestion Ditton 44, Seas 19mm tweeter. Made in Ipswich 1973!!! Works for me!

Haha, they are speakers my friend has and wondered if will be ok with F5, oh well lol
The Celestion Ditton 44, do look good. Iv'e always liked the idea of owning some of the higher range Dittons, i have tried the Ditton 15 and the sound was not too good.

Will definitely have some fun with "Full range" speakers and open baffle some time soon. am quite into the idea of Tri-amping

F5 = bass
Low bias F5 or other NP amp = Midrange
5-10 "class-a" = trebble

Well this might make you chuckle here my speakers i butchered but sound much better to "me" than the Celestion Ditton 15's.

Unprofessional, yet sounds good! DIY bodge job!
