Hey, excellent information Barry. Thanks
I don't know why it doesn't just say that on the official websites.
I just had a look at the schematic I sketched out and it shows a coil to earth of 0.5 Ohms; having a coil there before a tweeter is normal as it steepens the bass roll of before the tweeter. But then there is a series coil measuring 39 Ohms, which does not make sense unless there was a peak that needed dealing with, so a transformer does make sense. High voltage might also explain the arcing mentioned in a review of older speakers, if I remember correctly, perhaps the Ref 3.0? Do you know what the voltage scale up is?
My point was that you can usually hear adverse effects of components in the crossovers with speakers. So cross over less to me says, 'excellent, no smear from passives' and that's largely why I bought the Stradas. I can only presume that the capacitor will still have some effect on the sound quality in this CDT type of usage as a review stated that AG improved the quality of the caps between iterations of the models, an earlier one having an electrolytic cap in there. so can the caps in there be 'upgraded' to something that was too expensive for the manufacturer to afford, which is normally the case.
Thanks for confirming that the Classico have nothing in series with the bass / mid units. That makes them quite a bit more interesting to me Edited by Ian AS - 1/23/13 at 1:37pm
