The Path Audio resistors I ordered to eliminate the L-pad attenuator arrived this past week.

Today I spent a little time to rewire the crossovers. After the first speaker was done I listened to a few tracks to see if I could hear a difference.

Over the last few months I spent a bit of time adjusting the attenuator and settled on a place about 3/4 of the way around. I could hear the difference even moving the dial as little as 5%.

Surprisingly the swap resulted in the sound being the same as where I had set the attenuator. The difference was clarity. After an hour or so of listening to familiar tracks I swear I can here new information. Subtle, maybe a little more of the decay of a cymbal, a little more vibrato heard from a womenís voice.

So the attenuator is out for good. Iím getting as close to perfection in my system as I can get. I know more is there, itís just going to take a lot more reading and learning to figure out next tweaks.

Great to hear from you and your journey!

Can you share a pic of how you incorporated?

As you remember this is the area I feel is missing in my system. Although too strong of a statement, I listen everyday and am happy. I haven’t even thought about building another speaker, and I’m always building something.

How did you work out the crossover? And input/comments from Troels?

i give you a PM to talk about picture

i measure the unit and then make a 18db filter 4,5khz ,,with a notch filter , and i have

change the coil in the horn filter,, so together they now give a fine measure,,,very close to original

just a little more level in the tweeter area,,,,this is the best sound to me

it was easy to compare the original, to the new one ,,having filter on front the speaker

have my wife to point out the version she like ,,,and chose the new version

(remember ,it is not a night and day ,difference ) it is from start a great speaker

this is the special Beyma i use.....

Troels has updated this design with a v2: The-Loudspeaker-2


Still not convinced that about the tweeter + supertweeter part of the design. Need to do some digging to understand why Troels chose to go in that direction (and kept in in v2).

Thanks for posting about the updated version!

Iím still loving mine, and listen everyday.

But liking the new super tweeters Troels has added. I might try out the Visaton TL16H and update the crossover with the higher end caps.

Thanks for posing Troels comments.

He also said, in reference to the narrower width to be able to fit in storage,

ďI need to have these speaker permanently and roll them in from time to time. I just can't live without'em.ď

I think a pretty good review from him after all the great designs he has produced.
