    Pics of my Madi' order....

    Well now that I do this I feel like I may have hyped it up too much for you guys This is what I would call Phase IIa of my HT build, Phase I being the equip. acquisitions.

    These will be the high-range drivers in my 2-way book shelves that I will be building in maybe a decade at the rate I'm going

    My decision was based on the criteria that the tweeter could:
    a) handle the power of my Forte amp.
    b) play well above 20khz.
    c) have a low Fs (lower than 1khz)
    d) have a response as flat as possible in the audible range.
    e) cost less than the $400+ per tweeter Scan-Speak R2904/7000 that I REALLY wanted

    With that in mind I ended up deciding between a Fostex and a Vifa tweeter. I know, I know. The last thing I'd EVER want to get is a driver made by the company that gives tube geeks hope. I decided on the former because it offered better off-axis response and had a smoother run up to 20khz (they rated it's response all the way to 50k) than the Vifa.

    As you see, I also obtained some de-flex pads for my enclosures if I ever get that far.









    To be continued.....

    Guess you're no fan of Lowther either

    Don't worry, you can admit it...

    the one way way is tempting...renounce those evil crossovers and embrace sonic purity...follow the true path of the believers
