    you don't need test and measurements to show proof of that.

      We know who Jeff Bagby is. Who are you? So far all we have is your mouth running, but nothing to back up your claims.

        Why not optimize their usage?
        I, for one, would be really interested in this optimization process, please continue.

          I think a certain Russian brand of ribbon tweeter would be exciting with these new woofers. Just my opinion

            I can't remember details, so no - no elaboration.
            Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

              I can elaborate some. Jeff designed this speaker to be a true desktop or bookshelf speaker. They need to be used as they were intended to be used.

                I’d love to hear anything Jeff designed.

                I’m guessing I’d find them amazing.

                If anyone in the Milwaukee area has any Bagby designs and wants to show them off, let me know.

                  Yeah, it's not really fair to small desktop speakers when we play them in big room on free standing stands. They certainly don't have much of a chance to sound then way they were designed to sound. One the other hand, speakers like the Kairos and Spiritwinds sound great in that environment because they were designed to be used that way. With the Sopranos there's only so much you can ask of a tiny speaker with a 4" woofer. Put it in an entertainment center and next to a TV and the vocals are excellent.

                    Please send my condolences to your costomers.

                      Thread Title: A good tweeter to match 5" SB Acoustics Magnesium Woofers

                      I feel bad for the OP. His thread turned into something comical, for many reasons. Lots of nerdy testosterone being thrown from the keyboard warriors. Funny stuff.

                        Again I recommend The compact Neo ring tweeter from SB, the break up mode of the ceramic woofer will make a
                        lowish xover frequency recommended. As for the nerds I received tweeters in question today and the Viawave will
                        be here Thursday I also received the SB 5" and 6" Coaxials. Testing will start soon.
                        Guess xmax's age.

                        My guess: 15. His grammar is passable. His trolling is good.

                            Yep. Just sold out on GRT145. Not going to have them till late Jan. There will be an 8ohm version of the tweeter in the near future so this model, instead of GRT145 will become GRT145-4 and the 8ohm version will be called GRT145-8. There's also a Line Array specific tweeter in the development. This was my request to Dimitry as I want to replace Fountek neoCD2.0 with something better behaved on the low end.

                              I've brought the Polaris to a couple events, with the double magnet XT25 as a tweeter to the 7" SB magnesium. I've got good feedback overall. I can't imagine it would be hard to cross the 5" to the same tweeter given some XO work.
