Could be time for a tweeter shout out (I'll judge from outside the room)
 
 
id agree...
ive got 48 motorola piezos for when we need to reinforce the big dub sound.....
They get high pass at 5khz, run thru a graphic...and they aint bad..
Clearly i used comp drivers for anything else....
but eh....lets keep it roots!!!

To be honest i've not heard many roots systems but piezos do have a certain crispness and 'crack' to them that i've not heeard from any comp driver, hard to describe but less fizzy and more attack.  Certainly a unique sound and very nice if not overdone/overdriven, although not neccessarily a true representation of the source material - but then thats not always desired!!

Don't think I've heard piezos sound nice. Usually just sounds like white noise over the top of the track. Titanium tweeters sound 'splashy' but I think they have better definition.

OTOH...

One thing that strikes me is that supertweeters only have to cover an octave and a bit, and anything above about 10k is a hiss or a whine to the human ear, so if there's too much of it, it WILL sound harsh.

Rog I've gotta say I'm disappointed, I would've thought someone who's been doing speakers for so long would have the lingua down a bit better than that!

Maybe you need to spend a little less time helping Void make ridiculously good amps and brush up on your patois instead!

I agree! I love both of these types of tweeter, really crisp and nice but don't hurt your ears.
Slots are insanely useful for dispersion also, just aim em so their skimming the crowds heads, jobs a good un

edit: I know some proper techie is gunna say summat about this not necessarily being the case LOL

Makes sense to me.

As this site currently allow free promotional adverts for the dances.

Charity events is definitely understandable.

this is silly
 
the way the threads work is
 
first the flers areposted up
 
then people say if they will go
 
then the night happens
 
then the people that went tell us all about the soundsystems and which sounded better?
 
move it to unmoderated if you want but dont censor it!
 
time to give fsp another look i think
Produce a killer sound. Take no prisoners.
