Nice speaker ZM. What do those 8in Sonidos cost about? I have an AMT in want of a good 8in full range.

you can ask guys at sonido.hu directly ....... including shipping to your neck of wood

I believe they're under 400E/pair ...... for my spoiled ears much more forgiving/easier to live with than any Lowther I had opportunity to hear , besides being cheaper

disclaimer - I hate to implement any sort of Eq on main driver , and I'm taking FR as main driver , with or without helpers down and up

so , Lowther good bye

Nah, not overpriced RAALs, these:Viawave

Unless you are actually "active" and your speakers are above 93db (at 7Ohm!) :-)

You da man...

so with 0.47uF means that T90a should be enough rite

i can stop window shopping then, no need to read another post for RAAL or AMT

T90a has done a nice job sitting on top of my Tannoys (cute little wood
holder was included), but Pioneer PTR9 ribbons take the cake at 100 KHz...

Noted Papa for that Rare items $1.3k I'm lucky that my ears are still human, can't reach bat hearing area.

I have been listening to J2 (eventhough it's just a shame clone) for more than 2 months which has replaced glorious SIT L'amp. The difference is not night & day, SIT is something special but it keeps asking me to go back to J2. opposite is that when I settle on J2 then less desire to switch to another amplifier, that is the time where M2 has a little chance to get a place.

Friend and DIYaudio member Biosonar, used bats as subjects in sonar research.
He still owns 1 channel of that tweeter, specifically because of the 100 KHz
response.

I had occasion to put a pair on top of my Tannoys, crossed in at about 20 KHz,
and listened for differences. I thought they were brighter with DSD source,
but not with redbook.

Not a blind-as-a-bat test, however.
