I found this comparison to be enlightening and well worth my time. Even though I know parts quality can have a performance difference in many things, bicycles, wheels, kayaks, paddles, etc. This was the first time I was able to listen to speakers where the only difference was quality of the crossover parts. Now my opinion is informed by my own experience and I don't have to rely on other people's opinions.

Give it a try.

I'd be right pleased to do so.  :)

Hmm, well, I don't know if I qualify as a 'flat-earther', but I certainly have my doubts about whether unmeasured/ unmeasurable things can be audible, and therefore a difference-making factor in audio gear. Is there a third camp between the true believers and flat earthers... say, the unwashed agnostics?

I tend to throw that term around loosely and some take it as a poke in the eye. But the guys that really fit the term are the guys that let preconceived beliefs get in the way of learning or listening.

And it is okay to have doubts. It is okay to be skeptic. Just don't let that get in the way of listening. Keep an open mind.

My gut feeling is these might have some potential, but they come with some challenges...



They are quite small so the bass is limited to 120 Hz or so. That was easy to take care of.



Even though they are spec'd up to 20 KHz, they could really benefit from the addition of a tweeter;
however that would involve a crossover, and there's not a lot of room for either one of those things.
 


Each speakers contains two 2" BMR drivers. If I am not mistaken, the lower one I believe
operates between 120 ~ 150 Hz while the upper driver handles everything above 150 Hz. 

Might not be very practical or cost effective, but who knows? :lol:  Thoughts??

You can always send them over to me and I can measure and test them to see what there is to work with.

Danny, I’ll try to get them boxed up and out the door next week. They will be coming from Canada, so I’ll have to look into the bureaucratic procedure of doing this the right way so neither of us gets dinged for customs or tax upon delivery.

This address... 910 N. Jackson, Iowa Park, Texas 76367 USA ...is up to date?

According to your website’s contact info, that’s your address. :wink:

If however you have a more upto date address, I would prefer to use that.

That one is still fine for receiving. I am still working out of that office for a little while longer. I have a much larger office and shop that I am still moving into, but I am just not all moved in yet.
