improved scans of the 40-1354 - Page 2

Hmmm... That woofer would require an amp rated to handle 4-ohm loads (in fact, I am guessing that its rated impedance is 4 ohms) - but my receiver advises against using speakers whose nominal impedance rating is lower than 8 ohms.

BTW, that 1024 woofer claims a 28-3500Hz response, but without that all-important dB tolerance rating! And 2500Hz is still too low of a frequency to cross most tweeters at! In fact, many tweeters should be crossed over at 6000 to 8000 Hz for best performance.

Here is the two way designed with that woofer-

I own a pair of these, and they sound quite nice. I compared them to a pair of Vandersteen two ways, and found these to be much better.

The drivers are a Linaeum dipole tweeter and a special 4" Kevlar woofer. This is one of the finest speakers I have heard when combined with the proper subwoofer. Actually sounds great with the old Advent passive sub.
These have become a cult classic worth many times the original price.

They use a Linaeum monopole tweeter.
