The sound was not "too brittle" but the coloration of the driver was clearly audible. It's possible that a tube amp (or tone control) might have obfuscated the effect.
"Amplifiers were solid state. They were Wisdom Audio prototypes designed by Steve Dunlap, of Memphis, with the Adrenaline in mind."
I think that this driver has a bit of coloration but I suspect that it is exaccerbated by the fact that Wisdom uses them as a monopole and that the sound is coming off the back wall and through the driver. In my implementation it seems less colored than most box speakers I have heard but more so than the Apogees I had before (probably the least colored speakers ever made) and Acoustats.
Oops, missed that point. I am just used to Wisdoms being monopoles and didn't read carefully enough.
