Man, I ordered a pair of these from guitar center a few weeks back and they keep pushing the stock date.
I've got a pair of Emotiva Airmotiv 4s on the way. I don't need deep bass and listen quietly, so I was interested in the ribbon tweeters primarily. I'll post impressions at some point when they arrive.
I would have bought the 6's straight off the bat, but they have to fit on my desk. I might have bought the tiny Piegas (model number forgotten) as well, and got a subwoofer if I felt the need. They could have gone on stands behind my desk instead.
Looks like the tweeters on these speakers are what they call a folded ribbon tweeter. I believe these to be a modification of the famous Heil Air Motion transformer tweeter which also used a folded ribbon transducer. This transducer instead of pushing & pulling on the air in a straight back & forth movement used the folds in the ribbon to squeeze the air & expand to suck it back in. In so doing it could shoot the air out of the folds at higher velocity than a standard tweeter could.
Adam is one combining the ART tweeter (Heil motion transformer) with a woofer for years.
They are said to be a bit forward in the treble.
Might be interesting for the OP as he wants clarity at low volumes.
Likewise any 2 way with a metal dome tweeter might do the job.
