are you on the diyma forums??
i cant get enough of the design and innovation Hertz audio has. I am definately planning to purchase these...no doubt.
6spd from ca.com has em, and my god i literately got a boner(yes im nerdy when it comes to audio equipment)
check out his pics:
oh btw the are Hertz Ml500(from the Mille line) ribbons (he said they aren't truly ribbons they are "planers", he said they are a bit more rugged for the car audio environment. but very efficient. sound superb...
<br /><br />
they are more or less midrange drivers. reason they are considered midtweeters is because they play from ~700 - ~35k!
and you would bang them if you're an audiophile
Are those electrostats? amazing sounding technology. I'm an audiophile (sorta), but I prefer women to speakers. But if that's your thing, there's nothing illegal about it... yet.
i believe so, it uses a mylar membrane.
" Most enthusiasts and professionals believe that ribbon speakers can ensure faster transients than traditional cone drivers, thanks to their very light mobile voice coil. According to these parameters, mid frequency range is a very difficult load, in terms of importance and of amount of information.ML 500R can easily carry out this task. Its frequency response can go from 700 Hz to 35 kHz: it is the flattest, widest response which a midrange can have. ML 500R is quick, dynamic, efficient; its power handling is very close to the one of a subwoofer. Its warm, natural sound can generate pure listening emotions. Imaging is real, sound levels location is definite, tridimensionality is very easily conveyed. When it is used in two way systems, it has to be perfectly aligned with the listening point. Its response is excellent in this configuration; however, this speaker performs at best in three way systems, where it is naturally integrated with woofer and tweeter, providing no-compromise, state-of-the-art systems. "
Audio equipment is a lot like women, no matter how much you love em' they are still expensive...
i'll take my chances with the speaker
I adore my High Energy hertz, i cant image the Mille line, they are the BE of Hertz.
Shame anything Audison, Hertz, Connections etc gets the price jacked up like crazy here in Canada..
I've never listened to planars myself, but I have heard they have their own unique sound
If your cheap like me and want some good ones to play with
