Jeff, please advise me on a cap upgrade for use in a crossover. The tweeter is a 46" quasi ribbon and uses a single 24uf Solen metalized poly Fastcap FB series. I was considering a Sonicap Gen 1, 24, and a Gen 1, 0.1 uf bypass. I've tried a Clarity cap and preferred the Solen.
The tweeter used in the speaker he speaks of is not a quasi ribbon.It is a ribbon.Quasi ribbon is terminology used by Maggie to denote what is actually a planar tweeter. It uses magnetic drive from the rear immersing the tweeter element only in the stray magnetic flux field and a stretched and clamped on all sides tweeter element. Speakers from Carver to Infinity and Genesis BG etc. have been described as ribbons when in actuality they are more aptly described as Quasi.This is a common misnomer.If the tweeter element is suspended loosely only by its ends and the drive magnets are on either side of the ribbon immersing the tweeter element full in the magnetic gap allowing magnetic flow 90 degrees to the direction of motion, weather the element is a pure foil or a mylar backed foil its still a ribbon.FYI...Greg
I'll need Greg to chime in on that, I've only heard the Solen not the Clarity, Hello Greg. Jeff, How many hours for the Sonicap G1 to "burn in"?
