...barely two days ago, and didn't have so much time to listen yet;
but it is apparent that this "Klipsch K55v upgrade" is what it is: improving on the "good old" Atlas driver with greater bandwith, smoother response, less distortion while being a completely plug-n-play solution for Klipsch users (or people like me who use home-made frankenstein speakers based on the Klipsch Heritage products).
Mids are very noticeably clearer, more open, less blurry/hazy, and much more natural sounding. In my system they are loaded by EV SM120A horns. 400Hz>6KHz 6dB/oct.
It keeps improving as they are burning in so I expect even better results after another day of listening.
I am of course not affliated with John Allen or with B&K sound, just sharing my experience with a driver that may offer an interesting (and relatively cheap) option for DIY enthousiasts as well.

K55 has always been a favorite driver of mine. It doesn't get enough respect lol... This improved version is exceptional.
High sensitivity, wide dynamic range, low distortion, and smooth frequency response. Pwk
It is so exceptional that I can have it run on the -3dB tap on the autoformer (instead of the standard -6dB) and it sounds GREAT. I tried doing so with k55v it sounded like a megaphone.
