Hi,

I have a pair of Concerto's. Now one of the T27 SP1032 is broke. Which T27 should I look for and buy? The same SP1032 of should I go for the SP6535? Are there any differences in quality of "sound"?
Please notice that I do not want to modify my crossovers because I just bought them at Falcon Acoustics last week.

Paul

EDIT: Terry just mailed me with an answer. Try to guess it ! Laughing Cool

Great minds think alike... Very Happy
Trust Terry to be 1st off the mark!

If you intend comparing the variants on the T27 tread with caution.
Too many variables.

I'd be happier to have the two transducers side by side connected via a changeover switch and through the intended crossover.

Then I'd feed either white or pink noise through them, any tonal differences would be immediately apparent.

If my memory serves me right the earlier unit has a more pronounced 'pshh' Shocked charcter under these circumstances...
