I saw & heard one briefly on an MTM with CSS WR125ST + ribbon (IIRC). The demo was overshadowed by a single FR125STeN in a 7 liter aperiodically vented box (can't blame that on the amp)

The concept is really good (althou in a speaker box is not the best place for an amp microphonics-wize). I just wish they had more versatility in terms of the XO. They are aimed at "traditional" 2-ways... i'm more interested in XOs 200-400 Hz.

Thanks Dave:
I'm guessing that the 3 separate models w set freqs, is a manufacturing/economic choice. And it's definitely a limitation.
I wonder ( if like other active crossovers ) that the freqs are set by resistor values that could be swapped out?

Depends on the XO topology. I wouldn't buy one without a schema provided so that it could be done... someone should write Solen & ask...

Personally I am very reluctant to buy anything "unheard" even at the < $ 100 price point - short of a lot of positive reports
The "A" model w the 2Khz point is the only one has possible interest ( to me ).
