You seem, subjectively speaking, like to appreciate distortion products, then.
I had them both, intended to be used in a multiway system. For me, listening to a sine-sweep, the SB was not perfect, but comfortably ok. The Peerless instead subjectively failed right away.
Measured with a NT passband filter (800Hz ... 3.5kHz) shows that under this specific condition, the SB is clearly superior to the Peerless:
SB (sine thd)
Peerless (sind thd)
Under same conditions, SB produced 1% thd @ 1kHz, whereas Peerless produced 10% thd @ 1kHz.
SB (im multitone)
Peerless (im multitone)
In Multitone test same picture - SB showed less IM poducts than Peerless
Make your choice ...
Very nice result. Never thought to use them bare as a dipole before.
What causes the sharp dip at 2.7kHz?
