"Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass

Ok, I just finished putting together my 1.2's with the new RD0198's and this is the 1st time I am listening to them with working tweeters. It's late I can't push them but from my 1st listen they sound so much better than the SRS 2's.
Next week I will get me new AMP and I will keep swapping out the 1.2tl's & the 2's and I will get to the bottom line and figure out exactly which pair sound better.
working tweeters are kind of important to quality music listening... glad you got them. enjoy
I can tell you right now that the 1.2 tls with upgraded tweeters will sound alot better than a 1st gen sda srs2 without mods. Now if you mod a 2nd gen srs 2 and upgrade the crossovers and tweeters then you can have a contender for the 1.2 tls. I currently own 2 sets of 1.2 tls 1 with the original sl 3000 tweeters and 1 with upgraded rd 198 tweeters. I also have 2 sets of sda srs2 1st and 2nd generation 1 with the upgraded rd 194 and the other with the original sl 2000.
My oppinion of which sounds best out of these 4 speakers:
1. sda srs 1.2 tl with upgraded rd 198 and a very close 2nd sda srs 2 2nd generation with upgraded rd 194 tweeters.
SRT For Life; SDA Forever!
The SRT SEISMIC System:
Four main satellite speakers, six powered subs, two dedicated for LFE channel, two center speakers for over/under screen placement and three Control Centers. Amaze your friends, terrorize your neighbors, seize the audio bragging rights for your state. Go ahead, buy it; you only go around once.
However, subsequent application of Walker SST has taken my system to another level, and quite a high one - for my SDA-1C's, I've applied it (carefully, according to the directions!) to tweeter/driver connectors, crossovers, speaker jacks, IC pins, etc. The Walker product also is used throughout the rest of my system on tube pins, RCA connectors, ICs, PCs, IECs, speaker cables, etc. It's pricey, there's an even more expensive Walker formula available, and some persons think Mapleshade is a similar (and less costly) product. There's a number of positive reviews of the Walker product out there, Google is your friend. FYI - SST is not like DeoxIt ProGold. I've used both and SST smokes ProGold, in my system with my gear to my ears.
One thing for sure these 1.2's are very efficient. hardly any amplification and i am getting a lot of music.
You shouldn't run SDA's off a receiver, period.

"A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."
But your carver you have coming will like it. Even though most of the time you will never use even half its actual power, it has the headroom and capacitance to handle it, which is a good thing.:)
With a nice amp you will be amazed at how few watts it uses to obtain a nice listening level. I was I know.
