In a thread posted for a year back or so, there was a short sentence where the author described a loudspeaker system which was built together with a converted 2440/41 or 375 acting as a "dome-tweeter" (a "back-wards" compession driver). Is it realy possible to do it ?
I couldnīt find the thread again and a search gave nothing. Is there anybody at this forum knowing anything about it ? Whatīs the advatage/drawbacks to convert a compression driver ( eg. a 2440) to a dome tweeter.
I can see an advatage here to do it: I would nearly get all the speakers in a line, and an easier way to mount the driver (2440) in the big enclosure (it wonīt take as much volume in the bass enclosure as with a compression driver bolted to a horn (like the 2380).
I also understand that efficiency will go down a lot compared to the originals.
Maybe I shall convert my old 2440 together with new Ti diaphr. ? I have a lathe and could easely make some sort of a "frame or basket" to bolt to the driver and to a front panel.
I would appreciate to to get a tip here, maybe somebody have knowledge to describe how to do it. Has anybody listen to this "driver", what was the impression, and the type of "sound" produced by the dome ?
