    Proac Tweeters

    Nicky has already got her eyes on a set of Klipsch, the La Scala which might even be Nicky proof.

    Proac Tweeters

    I will have to ban Nicky from them as she has form in killing speakers.

    I think you are right that they are also fitted to some Linn speakers (Kabers spring to mind). I just hope they are a little more robust than the scanspeak ones, but I will find out in a couple of weeks or so.

    Proac Tweeters

    Just about to replace my Proac Tab 2 tweeters for the second time (Nicky likes it loud) with some of these: https://willys-hifi.com/products/hiquphon-ow1-92-tweeter Don't know how they will compare, has anyone else used them?
  5. Even Pioneer have got in on the act: https://www.pioneerdj.com/en/product/monitor-speakers/rm-07/black/overview/ I wonder if the link is Andrew Jones by any chance?
  6. At least most vintage gear can be fixed with basic test equipment and low cost components. I wonder how much of the current gear will be usable in 20 years time.
  7. I think most symphony halls actually go out of their way to sound as awful as possible. The amount of eq and processing I have to do in them to get even a passable sound is insane. Give me an old church any day, we seemed to have lost the ability to design good sounding venues.
  8. Then you also get in to time domain errors which start to become significant which all the required processing and signal A to D and D to A conversions.
  9. I would certainly agree with eq only being useful below 200hz, but would certainly argue the point on calibration. Even Sonarworks makes that a requirement for accurate microphones for EQ purposes, or you are only guessing which seems rather pointless. https://www.sonarworks.com/soundid-reference/blog/learn/do-i-really-need-a-measurement-microphone-to-try-out-reference-4/
  10. The thing with measurements is that you have to understand what they are telling you and what they cannot. Room EQ is up there with the worst offenders for this with microphones which are often not calibrated and lacking in frequency response. Secondly the area's in which EQ is worst than useless such as reverberation, reflections and standing waves. Another of my pet peeves is thinking you can successfully EQ a room from one point, there are many better methods using more measurements which give a far better (flatter) result. Don't forget that human bodies act as sound absorbents as well.
  11. Got to be careful here. What is meant by badly? Some speakers which are designed to be placed against wall or other room boundaries may well measure less well than free space optimised speakers. Yet in use the less well measuring speakers will sound better. EQ isn't always the solution, you cannot eq out bass cancellations. The other question with EQ is how and where you measure from.
  12. Top tip of the day, if you like your house to be still insured stick with a plug/fuse approved to the relevant British Standard.
  13. A speaker horn at it's most basic is a coupling device which provides a better impedance match between driver and the air.
  14. Just to stop a common held fallacy, horns can have wide dispersion just like any other speakers. Tom Danley has written loads on the subject.

    AE2 speaker help

    Sounds more like a blown/damaged driver than a crossover failure. Crossover failure usually results in a complete loss of sound, this has all the hallmarks of blown voice coil.
