I finished refoaming my speakers about 3 1/2 months back and have been very happy with them especially after paying $10 at a garage sale. I got the foam from GordonW and it is perfect. Compared to my dad's paradigm studio references I would describe them as sounding full and warm with tight bass versus the paradigms being analytical with perhaps more detail and somewhat bloated mid bass but also deeper bass. I am interested in messing around with digital room correction to help increase their sound quality even more. I was reading a guide I found. It stated this:
I have goggled extensively trying to find the power rating for the advent 5002 tweeters but had no luck so I was wondering if anyone else might know.A.
Find out your tweeter’s continuous power handling rating. It can be usually found at your speaker’s website, speaker booklet, etc.
If the rating value is not somewhere in between 1-20 Watts (for example, if it’s 50W, or more), then this is probably not the true rating value we're looking for. In this case, it is better to assume that we do not know the true continuous power handling rating of the tweeter, and because of this it will be safer to play the log sine sweep, using 1Watt, max,
Important – if you do not know your tweeter’s continuous power handling rating, going over 1 Watt with the sine sweep, can destroy the tweeter, so please, think twice if you want to take this risk.
In case the tweeter’s rating value you found, DOES give the impression to be the right one, you should still use only HALF of this rating, just to be on the safe side.
