Hmmm...

I seem to have a pair of these clones too...
Would anybody care to give me a hint to improve the tweeter?
The Focal unit is no ScanSpeak Revelator....

Isn't that a good thing?;)

The Focal is rather unforgiving of any grittiness upstream, but I've not heard a soft-dome that I'd prefer (although I've not heard the ring- radiator as yet.)

Arne- whats your problem with it, if you dont mind me asking?

I do not like the Focal unit much...I think it gives some coloring to the sound, and is not as airy and detailed as the Revelator in my AudioVector S6.
Female jass-singers looses the "magic".

I do not need any "grit-filter..."

The RingRadiator is over-priced, not better sounding, just much harder to implement...

need help...!

Since my "clones" are gathering dust, it would have been nice to modify them into something usefull...:devilr:
As they now are with above mentioned drivers, and filter is a copy of this:
http://www.users.nac.net/markowitzgd/david/wap-x-o.gif and this:
http://www.users.nac.net/markowitzgd/david/watt-x-o.gif

-I have been told that the 0,33mH is too small in this setup.

OK, easily changed. But still don't like the midrange. So I need a totally different driver...but what is usable here?
And then, what mods should I do to the filter?

Or should I change the whole speaker into something similar to the "Poly Natalia" ? http://www.blackdahlia.com/polyarti.htm

Suggestions are most welcome...

Hi,

don't understand 0.33mH is too small see :

http://www.users.nac.net/markowitzgd/david/wattcrossover.htm

A totally different driver is not really on.

Or the Poly Natalia - you can't get the drivers.

Best re-use would probably be as follows :

Rebuild the head unit with a 6.5"/1" design of your choice.

Bi-amplify with active bass/mid slopes to the bass unit.

Probably best to use active baffle step compensation for the
mid/treble head to increase headroom, but more complicated.
