Jonasz, where did you read this about Vapor stating this? Sounds interesting. What do you think Jon, can you wrangle a pair from Chris to try?

That's my experience from working with all three. It's also easy to verify with measurements due to the Beyma's laser beam like top end dispersion. Which aside from price, is it's only downfall. FYI, I also found it very easy to work with when using passive components.

Face,
"passive components", there in lies a big problem when comparing drivers. Different caps have different sound signatures. One cap may make a tweeter sound great and another cap may make it sound mellow, whereas those same two caps may make another tweeter sound the opposite. As I've found that out many years ago, of course I didn't bother to update my caps, lol.
Which to me is a vote for any driver that doesn't require a DC blocking cap. All transformer coupled style tweeters like ribbons require a cap of some value, dome drivers and I believe the AMT can be a direct connection to your amp, providing of course you are using a digital xover ahead of your amp and your amp doesn't have a dc offset or large turn-on thumps.

Did you miss where I mentioned measurements?

As for caps, I generally only use CC MR or ESA.

Hmmm, I guess I must have, lol.

Two of those are reasonably priced but the MRs can be expensive, depending on the value(s) they can add up very quick.

A little more expensive from Madisound and considering you are in Canada it would be less expensive for you to go to Parts Connexion.
