Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: horn tweeters

nope! no way EVER! i'd go the multiple driver route before ever allowing honky shrieking horns into a system of mine. the same thing goes for evil distortion inducing ports. my whole reason for going with ribbons was to lower distortion as much as possible as well as get the fastest transients possible. as i mentioned too, some of the very same "pro" compression drivers you're talking about are rated as low as 15w too which most certainly is NOT going to be the rating of a speaker they're used in.

i'd rather go the "4 x dayton titanium domes" route to get the efficiency needed for my battery powered system. those sound pretty good without the aluminum signature of aluminum domes, but with better speed & transients than soft domes.

actually, it'd be better to go with the 95dB AMT i first considered as i think the daytons need higher crossover points too.

i'm not trying to fill a stadium, but it takes some SPL to rock a dance or tailgate party, or at least headroom to do it without distorting.
