Post Subject: Line level vs. speaker levelPosted by Paul S on: 4/20/2007
I'm sorry, I thought I mentioned that I was responding to the earlier post about HF, up the thread.  I guess I misunderstood from other reading that you much preferred your crossovers at line level, while I was proposing it at the ribbon, "as a [temporary] HF alternative", apparently based on my initial misunderstanding.

I also understood that you wrote of using the 6E5P to push the ribbon.  If so, do you plan for the 6E5P to push the ribbon through the crossover, or do you plan to hi-pass ahead of the 6E5P?

I have not figured out just what it takes on the part of an amp to properly drive a HF ribbon through a simple network, but I have been amazed by how few amps can do it well, even though it seems like it should be an "easy" job.  Do you think it has anything at all to do with how much voltage the amp can swing?

I am very curious to see how your mini HF amp works out.

Best regards,
Paul S
