1." Reducing coil DCR will make the tweeter sound louder".I thought that lowering resistance on the "active" wire will make woofer/tweeter louder, not the resistance on the shunt connected to the "null" wire.
2. "Audiophile perspective would say it's more detailed"Detail and precision is currently what I am aiming for. My assumtion about the shunt (2nd order) is that it filters out further unwanted frequencies, logically I would say that the lower resistance there the better, but ... there is more than meets the eye. I just do not know what.
I will need to read about the design and all about speakers. Any suggestions on books? I heard about the "Loudspeaker Design Cookbook" by Vance Dickason and "Designing, Building, and Testing Your Own Speaker System with Projects" from David Weems.I know that best is to test for my self and see how each component behaves and what effect does it have in overall. I will need to buy a lot of cheap resistors as the shunt coil upgrade is happening and fine tuning can begin.
In upgrading tweeter resistors from metal oxide to wirewound (as you plan to do) I found the added detail the wirewound made me attenuate tweeter a little more to achieve balanced sound with the more detail. The better harmonic complexity and textural detail remained even after increasing attenuation on the tweeter network without adding the DCR resistor.
