I'm glad you gave us a reference - the first two shots did not convey the size of these. There's a lot of copper in those - wow. I expect that these will get you one step closer to audio nirvana. Cool stuff Lee.

Al and I had a long chat on the phone.....and as it happens, hi volume listening will be less stressful on all concerned using extreme slope crossovers. I had thought about it years ago, and had actually experimented with extreme slope on some electronic crossovers......didn't like em at first, then I heard a set of these on Stephen's K's.....SCHWEET.....

The slope or rate of rolloff at the cutoff frequency, in db per/octave IIRC. The higher the db number the steeper the slope, meaning less music energy being transferred to the frequency not tolerated well by the target driver.

So.....a steep slope means less bass in the mid, less mid in the tweet and vice versa......


Make sense??

Yeah, looks like you are saying only the correct frequency range that each driver can handle are being fed to each. Sounds like longevity for the drivers is exponentially better with these right as your not getting bleed over of frequencies that should be going to other drivers
