Even the Huldra 5,s own graph shows at 9 khz its -30db down .


Most of Goodmans UK loudspeaker output was in low grade loudspeakers in table radios in the UK with small voice coil magnets they were never made for hi-fi .


Even Goodmans "hi-fi " range were for those who couldn't afford something better but in the ,50,s they made some passable loudspeakers for industry ,they also made hi-fi loudspeakers in the ,70,s but be aware they were never near the top end in audio reviewers eyes.


Having said that I have a pair of Goodmans Magnum -K2 -M-range late ,50.s/early ,60,s loudspeakers the 12" driver and the mid and tweeter seem to be very collectable .

Yeah i own a tandberg hifi system 11 with a 5 inch goodmans speaker and a 2 inch tandberg tweeter i think its sounds awesome much better then the 5x8 goodmans in the sølvsuper 8.

You would be better with a sleeve of some sort or a small electrical connector as I have watched various types of electrical insulation tape deteriorate over years due to heat.

Dielectric thickness is directly related to physical size and inversely related to leakage current and capacitance. So I am not worried. Its sonic profile may or may not be pleasing.

The sonic profile of the electrical tape on a capacitor lead?
