1" distance is a nearfield measurement for the woofer only and isn't accurate as a full-range test. You can easily test to see if there's a phase problem with the crossover. Set your microphone...

The wire runs are fairly short so replacing them won't really make a difference. Older electrolytics are the worst offenders as they can drift in value. Replacing the resistors is a good idea as...

The green caps are made by Roederstein and are probably made of mylar film. Overall decent parts quality; however, electrolytic caps can drift in value over several years.

As you move out from the center the output is reduced on each driver. This works along with the arc to control the beamwidth so side reflections don't create any problems.

I've used a pair of Genelec 2-ways for mixing and have also designed speakers using coincident drivers like the LS50 so I have a pretty good idea of how they might compare. True, the active monitors...

[quote=Williams2;40524298]

The shipping cost can be moderate if you use postal which has a lower brokerage cost than UPS or Fed Ex. We have shipped to Canada using USPS with very few problems.

Is the ribbon element not replaceable on the OEM models? The 70-10D, 70-20XR, and 140-15D are all replaceable and it's fairly easy to do.
