Re: BG Radia Z7 Tower Ribbon Planar Speaker

Those speakers seem like they would do the job I'm needing to fill. As I have not ever heard the speakers for my own judgment they definitely seem loud enough. What type of watts are you running in those videos?

They sound about as clear as my phone will play. How long was the build? Shipping is the worst to maui. Amazon wants 200+for shipping for the tritrx towers. Not that I can use them in my system.

Re: BG Radia Z7 Tower Ribbon Planar Speaker

Not sure on shipping but I think wattage was around 50 watts for the 8" 2 way and maybe 85watts or so for the 15". I would look at shipping packaging sizes and then get quotes. I know shipping will be cheaper to you than me. But for the money I dont think there is anything within double or even triple the price if store bought.

If that's the case then I think I'm limited to the 8". I think I got 2 5.25 in the towers right now. It seems the demon is used to more of a satellite type speaker as it has a hard time with my 150wrms. It would be nice for a more efficient design.

Re: BG Radia Z7 Tower Ribbon Planar Speaker

How do you like the wave guide tweeter. I always known horn tweeters to be "harsh" sounding. I been around a lot of pro audio and I know there compression horn style. What's the news with these?

A horn can sound great. Most ProAudio are not intended for HiFi. These designs I mentioned are intended for HiFi with a high quality horn being used then most Pro Audio types. I have heard plenty of horrible horns in my past before.

Re: BG Radia Z7 Tower Ribbon Planar Speaker

Fusion 6 looks like a good contender. Only say that because it's a nice price for what is needed. 200 is that rms or peak? I would probably end up selling my existing setup for a nice upgrade. Are most of the speakers easily compatible? I don't know what I need till the sub is done.

Compatible with?

200watts rms most likely yes. Most of all these design can play very loud. Some can just go lower than some is all. BUT for most it is not needed when using subs.

Re: BG Radia Z7 Tower Ribbon Planar Speaker

I was thinking the 8 for front and the 6 for surround speakers. Erich was saying that there is going to be a couple of new speakers coming out soon. Special 88 is what he called it. Along with a mtm center channel. Might wait to see what there about. No free shipping to Hawaii.
