Hi Chris,

For those of us that have not had the opportunity to listen to open panel
speakers, can you describe their strengths and weaknesses compared to rear
loaded horns such as the Hedlund.

Strength Quasar MkII:
- no time delay
- deeper bass
- no colouration
- open sound
- easy to built

Weakness Quasar MkII:
- costs (i.e. extra amplifier, bass drive units)

Does the bass have EQ and is the Fostex 206E driver selected for economy
or would Lowthers or AERs do the job better.

Yes, the bass is EQ-ed. The Fostex is more economical but also has more body in the low-mids so that the BD15's can be crossed steeper. Lowthers will do a better job in dynamics, resolution and detail, AER's will do a better job in detail, clean mid's and transparancy.



BD-Design - Only the Best!
