RE: Should we send a "representative" to Magnepan?

Didn't some OEM mfrs modify the BG line sources to do that? I'd expect IM to be a concern, but we aren't dealing with bass frequencies so its geometrically less of a problem than it would be if you tried doing that with a woofer, and, really, we already know that a single driver can satisfactorily cover a broad range -- e.g., the BG's -- so we'd only be adding in a single octave.

The Wisdom approach is another possibility, albeit a pricey one and one that sacrifices the advantages (and loses the disadvantages) of a ribbon and could have interference/power response problems around the crossover point. So is the Quad delay approach using multiple amplifiers, but that opens a new can of worms.
