=higher x over distortion

Hi APWB:
The advantage of SETs is no x over distortion (since the single tube does both swings and there is no x over per say) and pretty sounding lower harmonics. Once you switch to Push Pull amp designs wether SS or tubes cross over dist. becomes a factor. Since x over distortion is quite audible this is to avoided as in SET or class A amps. In SS amps cross over distortion levels are higher at lower powers as opposed to tube amps. That AR amp with 4x6550 tubes per side?? is MASSIVE OVERKILL for horn speakers but horns being more efficient dissipate more heat and can tolerate more power than direct radiators. Luck
