3-way loudspeaker system with dipole Heil AMT tweeter

After a previous build based on vertically stacked planar magnetic speakers, I decided to make a more or less conventional three-way loudspeaker system, keeping the dipole radiation for the highs only.

Looks like a good use for a Heil tweeter!

My new setup uses a Windows PC as a FIR audio processor. Instead of a dedicated DSP, the computer does all the filtering, equalization and phase linearization.

Re: 3-way loudspeaker system with dipole Heil AMT tweeter

This system fulfills my expectations, not just for specific strengths. Whatever the loudness, the soundstage is natural, it has a broad sweet spot with a warm balance, yet ultra-clear tone quality. Nothing's exhausting, no stridencies, no compression, no blur. It's also noticeable that the double subs are rather immune to room modes. Distinct and full-bodied voices, delicious strings, throaty saxophone, hard guitar, techno bass, dry or heavy drums, everything is played equally effortless. Lesser quality recordings remain what they are, of course, but don't become overly bad. For me, nothing is missing.
