Too bad I don’t understand how the capacitor accomplishes this or where the frequency is tapered off but perhaps enough will soak in over time so I do. The power handling is inherently doubled plus you don’t have the worry about baffle step comp with both front facing and rear facing drivers. That simple cap trick solves the whole problem.

Now I’ve got it on the top as well. I have found that a single FR can only handle peaks of about 30 watts to reach full X-max using most music and playing them full range.
Now you guys are discussing 4 drivers in a situ 3-way design, that’s getting a long way from the prescribed home base.
But Duke points out, cse can get magical sound with a rear mounted ‘super tweeter’ that adds ambience and airyness that improves the overall performance. Much better octave-to-octave tonality than the Fostex, Tang Band, and Audio Nirvana single driver speakers I’ve built in the past. Maybe you’re not great with crossover design but you can build one hell of a cabinet? You still have no low pass crossover anywhere and no real crossover point.
Logged versus rider Jr. Fss, these are not high sensitivity speakers and they need the conrol of a medium power amplifer to manage the bass.

Haven’t tried them with tubes but I anticipate any EL34 pp amp would be fine. Csz are a whole nuther animal now. However, supertweeters could be allowed.
Give them a try. See our banned email list here: You really can’t listen to the two EL70’s in the same cabinet without taking the highs away from one of them. Want to see us come out with new products? FredTB on 30 Jun Since the wrap-around dip effectively disappears in the power response anyway, in my opinion we’re better off leaving it in there, but it’s a judgment call.
My position on adding a tweeter to a bipolar pair of full range drivers is that Duke’s approach two-way woofer and tweeter on front and back baffles along with a proper crossover is the ultimate solution.
You might be surprised at what it does.

For some cabinets the differences are enough to require different dimensions; for others they are the same and only things like stuffing or damping come into play.
Logged Jim Griffin Jr. So with two capacitors and a tweeter I have essentially created a three way speaker. I ordered a 68 uF cap to give that a try.

I don’t think people realize just how destructive to the response it is by running full range drivers together like that.
I’ve found my Virtue One works fine, and a Krell integrated is even better. Sorry tube guys, you can’t have everything in one speaker. The power handling is inherently doubled plus you don’t have the worry about baffle step comp with both front facing and rear facing drivers. Every year at the LSAF I’m able to compare the sound of single drivers czs the sound of two-ways, and I always prefer the two-ways.
And I’m pretty certain I won’t need the ribbon csz anymore.
I haven’t heard these designs and I’m sure they surpass the CSS, but for the money this one is hard to beat. So with this trick you can easily double power handling and then you can then put enough power on these to reach reasonable output levels.
These little speakers sound fantastic, with absolutely none of the shout I’m accustomed to hearing with high sensitivity light-cone drivers like Fostex and Lowther.
They sound better in parallel but this is a 2 ohm load.
