If I Crtites my towers, what about the center?

Recommended Posts

I have KG 4.2 towers I am thinking about putting Crites titanium diagrams in to replace the ones in the K-85 tweeters. My center channel has a K-86 which I cannot find titanium for. What are the thoughts on putting a surface mount dome titanium tweeter in place of the existing K-86 in the 2.5 to try to brighten it up and timbre match as well as possible?

It depends on how much difference there is.

 

I would be inclined to leave them all the same, for maximum accuracy of imaging and timbre match across the front.

 

There is also the matter of sensitivity.  

 

Where would you get the surface mount titanium tweeter?

 

Discuss all issues with Bob.

Does Bob still hang out now and then? As for timbre, the 86 and 85 re not really very well matched. The tweeter material is even different. I agree on the sensitivity. That might need tweaked which would be easy enough. I would just buy the tweeter from PE probably. They also have small horn loaded titaniums which might be a good match to the little horn loaded K-86.
