I believe the Magnepan literature, which says that many recordings are made with overbright highs to compensate for speakers that roll off. They suggest that you insert a resistor in series with the tweeter so as to match the Maggie response to what the recording engineer assumed when the recording was made. Every speaker crossover network that I know of except for Maggies has a tweeter "padding" resistor. Magnepan gives you the ability to easily select the value of this resistor so as to suit your taste (or more likely, your HF hearing).
