I replaced some very old little guys with Klipsch Rp-600M and I think they have horns in there. Admittedly, over the years, I forget everything I might've learned about speakers, so I just followed Crutchfield's rec.

Yeah the acoustics of tweeters is frustrating sometimes. I think that's where the most R&D goes, still, trying to get that thing to spray the waves around.

I have some Bose ones that are hand me downs but I haven't taken them apart to see what they are like, but they're kind of pie-shaped so maybe there's something cool under there.


Bose makes tweeters?

Lesson learned the hard way: instead of pointing my speakers so they're sitting in a rectangular position and look good, turning them to point at my work chair makes them sound a hell of a lot more precise and the treble is finally there. Duh...

Yeah, practice what you preach.  The timing of your remark directly relates this to my post in the PF thread.

Hey Randy, you are the reason I no longer post in the Positive Thoughts and Prayers thread because of this post of your placed directly above mine where you tried to shame and humiliate me for responding to Scott in a personal way that if you keep reading forward was a post that was directed towards me in part. 

Positive Thoughts and Prayer Requests

 Now let me talk about me...{#Meditate}
 

You call me out for sharing something personal as being trying to be self important rather than reading things correctly and responding in kind.

Then you have the nerve to make yourself so self important that you announce that you have Covid in the RP News You Should Know thread.  Really ?

RPeep News You Should Know

You're just one of millions.  I got it and mentioned in the Covid thread in passing as it was the right place and an acknowledgement that I am nothing special, just someone else who got it.

You've had a hard on for me for years because of my political views as far as I can tell based upon your behaviour towards me and others who have similar views.  You are not compassionate or understanding unless one agrees with your POV on things.  Everyone else can

Right ?

You need to do a little bit bit of self examination and introspection.  You do live in a glass house. I remember your journals about your mental issues and how they affected you so much that you were able to get Social Security Disability.  Am I right ?  

It is time for you to put your sock puppets away that you are so fond of showing off to all the people you have hated here over the years and grow up or get help.

So in your own words ...

Feck off!

Man, New Orleans is filthy. Have a little respect, why don’t you? You don’t need money - just get a shovel and slice up all the weeds growing in the sidewalk cracks, and pick up the plastic cups strewn all over the neutral ground (or maybe don’t leave them there in the first place?). Freedom doesn’t mean you get to be irresponsible.

I like this part of this story where the stove goes to another home for it's second life of providing comfy heat.
