  • Cheap Ribbon Tweek

    This worked on a Fountek CD3.0 and I'm sure it will help with Aurum Cantus,etc as well. RAAL uses foam caps on some of their units to help contour the response. I took the foam caps from their 70-10D tweeter and tried them on the Fountek. It works! Flatter response and can be adjusted according to how many pads used (1 or 2) and where you place them. If you have measurement capability try this - a simple open cell foam will work.

    By your subject I thought you were going to tell us about a tweak for a cheap ribbon tweeter, not a cheap tweak for a (not cheap) ribbon tweeter! :p
