The Geers eVe II uses the ScanSpeak Classic line drivers - 21/8555-01, 18W/8545, D2904-98000 in a 2.5-way, series-fed mid/tweeter, parallel woofer. The Mundorf Supreme Caps sound amazing with the paper/carbon cones. These have more holography, dimensionality, dynamics, and spaciousness than the SBA MTM 16. The high efficiency of the eVes match well with tube or solid state gear. 2.5-way strikes the best balance in sound quality, naturalness, and musical experience. I'm actually going to make a Satori eVe version of this 2.5-way using the ScanSpeak 22W/8851T00, SB MW16P-8, and TW29BN-B.

The MTM crossover includes the Jantzen Alumen Z. The MTM excels in transparency and naturalness. The Be tweeter is smooth and airy. The D'Appolito design yields limited vertical dispersion, but excels in horizontal dispersion - so keep tweeter @ ear level on stands!

The custom 13" 3-way uses Visaton TIW-300, 18WU/8741T00, D3004/66000. Crossover is a series-fed 3-way mid/tweeter with parallel woofer. Large mid caps are the Jantzen Superior Z, and the tweeter caps are Audyn Reference and Mundorf Silver/Oil. These excel in throwing an even a larger image, dynamics, and frequency extension over the MTM. 13in 3-way matches better with solid state than tube gear due to the lower 86dB SPL.

The efficient SBA MTM matches better to my 6SN7 tube preamp, and push-pull KT88 amp setup than my solid state Odyssey Tempest preamp and Dual Mono Amp gear. The
