  1. Hi all, I'm in need of help in regards to swapping the tweeters in my Aaron ATS-5 main speakers. This all started when Ditu's Aaron HMF-600's became available for sale and I was the intended buyer until I wrote my car off the following day and funds aren't there atm! Anyway I had been trying to decide for some time about swapping the tweeters out for the Vifa XT25 which Aaron actually use in there top end (Hyperboloid) model. The only thing I would like more with my ATS-5's is the tweeter although it is nice and mellow for my liking (newly owned them since 98!) they seem roll off at the top end just a little to much and I would like to try the XT25. The Dali's I bought are just to bright for me and although they have great detail they are very fatiguing but also are only bookshelf speakers so maybe its a combination of that? My friends Jamo are similar to me in that they are to bright and although this can seem good for HT with movies it is a killer on my ears very quickly. I thought that if the Vifa's fit the cutout no probs or with little mod I'd be willing to buy a pair and make the crossover separate to match. Aaron use all electro caps so no big dollar stuff needs to be applied but I will need help for what crossover components to use? I have photos of my model of ATS-5 but believe the standard tweeters were crossed at 5khz (as are the HMF's). I can supply pdf's of their crossover layouts as they provide them on there website. Vifa sell a couple of different models in the XT25 though and I'm not sure which ones to use? They have the XT25TG30-04 and the XT25BG60-04 but was thinking of using the TG30? My speakers have the specs are- Freq Resp- (28Hz - 23kHz (+/-3db) Power-(30 - 200 watts) Sens-(93db) Imp-(6 ohms) and the design is of (Low Q Ratio)! Not sure the 93db sensitivity is correct but they are efficient and at least over 90db using fabric cone surrounds! Can a 4ohm tweeter be used with the 6ohm system no problems though as this is out of my knowledge base? I thought of just copying Aaron's crossover design from there HMF-600 Mk1/Mk2 which is also at 5khz with also what I think is a filter for the resonant freq? Anyway all or any feedback is much appreciated and can add links, schematics or pics if needed. Thanks, Brett
  2. Item: Aaron ATS-5 Floorstanding Loudspeakers Location: Elsternwick VIC Item condition: Acoustically excellent, cosmetically some scuffing (pics to follow) Price: now on ebay: http://bit.ly/YJB249 Reason for selling: see extra info Payment Methods: Cash on pickup only Extra Info: I purchased these late last year via ebay for my teenage brother, who subsequently had a change of financial circumstances. I have hooked them up and listened and they sound fantastic. All the drivers are in great shape, but the box and grills have some wear and tear (will be posting pics tonight). $317 is exactly what I paid for them and is therefore not negotiable. If I can't sell them at this price, will re-list them on ebay and take my chances. Pictures: on the way...
