Has any owner of 4425/30/35 felt the need to supplement the top end response with something along the lines of a 2405?
If so, what did you use and what are your impressions?
Also, how would the net system impedance be affected, I`m guessing it would be lowered somewhat.
TIA

ALMe either.

Back when ring radiators rulled the day I invariably had them turned just above off.

I have to say that when we first put the 4430 and 4435 next to the previous product line they took a bit of getting used to, but they won the day. The first tune I ever heard on a 4430 (sitting next to a 4333B) was Steely Dan's Black Cow and it was memorable.
