I've been listening to the 35's I picked up last week. I was pretty surprised, both good and bad. These things sound pretty darned good for their age. They are much more detailed and revealing than I expected. Not necessarily in all areas but Tull's flute along with every breath the player takes is easily heard and very clearly. I also heard breathy sounds in some of the Live I listened to that don't show up as well even on most of my Polk's. Clear smooth bottom end that has more depth than I expected out of the aperiodic design. Low bass extension similar to some decent acoustic suspension systems. Mids are great (again back to the flutes). Much better than I would expect from the 10 inch driver, and the treble they have is clean. But then the treble just falls off the map and is gone in the upper range. Not sure exactly where this happens but it seems far below 20k. My guess would be somewhere around 15-16k.
Anyone familiar with these; Is my perception the norm for these. I understand the crossover is very minimalistic. My guess is the large tweeter size creates some significant roll-of of the upper frequencies, while creating a very detailed upper midrange. Are there any mods to improve this characteristics? or is it just characteristic of the drivers?
