Anybody used the ATC mid-bass drivers in a project? I have a pair of SCM-7's that i think could be improved. The x-over is around 2.8Khz (iirc) and the tweeter is the D26N55-06 (i think) which tends to get good reviews, but i think it can be improved on. Would crossover tweaking/upgrading help or just starting again with a better tweeter?

Bass and midrange are really good, but they can be a little to hard and splashy in the treble, maybe a slightly smoother and more refined tweeter would be better. Was thinking of something along the lines of the old Morel MDT-33 or the larger domes recently tested-

Hi,

Other than some mild crossover tweaking, e.g. tweeter levels I'd leave
them well alone, I think for doing it differently you should really start
from scratch, and accept the ATC's as they "are what they are".

As used it may be very hard to effectively improve the tweeter.

Hi Rob

According to your description, it is not the tweeter the problem, it's the crossover. The crossover point seems good but the slopes are not steeper enough. The sound of the tweeter or the woofer could be hard because some undesirable frequencies are not carefully suppress. I suppose the woofer doesn't have resonance peak.

Can you get the xover schema ?

The tweeter could be 18/24 dB electrical instead 12dB for example

I love the sound of the ATC SCM20.

Cheers, if i were to start again, any particular kit that would give me the blend of tight controled bass, stable midrange but with slightly sweeter high's. Room is only around 9ft square, and all types of music. I do like to listen loudly at times, so anything that can keep up the the SCM-7's would be adequate.
