Right Dave. Using exotics parts change sound in your brain in my experience but not the real sound. The cross over still going to be right in the middle of Midrange frequency. They are revealing and accurate speakers. Not forgiving to bad recordings. All these goes against what I have in my collection.

Pop over to the Full Range area and you can find numerous speakers of nominal cost that don't have a midrange crossover.

Also, why would anyone want a set of speakers that are forgiving to bad recordings??

Dave.

well,you read me wrong! revealing can not be forgiving to bad recordings, right? What I said was MMG are very revealing,so I cant use my collection with them.At the same point they are not the best in midrange.FF125WK seems better to me for midrange.
Most FR speakers can be crossed over away from mid band. I know big maggies are better from hearing them before. But need big room too. Everything is a trade off.

I've been playing with a set of rebuilt SMGa, I can't see the rave about them, their mid bass heavy and destroy female voice in the lower freq, the wire tweeter ribbon glued to the mylar doesn't get up to 16khz, they can be seductive, but thats short lived when listening to them criticely.

The crossover in the SMG's is broad, series, and (partially) mechanical.

Also, I'm not sure what type of issues might have been incurred with your "rebuild" job. That might be a variable as well.
If they sound f--ked up, then I'd say there is something wrong with them.

Regardless, these are entry-level Magnepan's and if you were expecting Apogee-killers, you'd most likely be disappointed.

Dave.
