Probably because it doesn’t sound as good. The ribbon tweeter is great.

Yes, these Brits for one.
I assume that almost all dealers if they have a demo D30 or 48 on the floor, will have the R version, so I wonder how many have actually heard the 30 or 48 with soft dome, rather than comparing to earlier models equipped with that tweeter, which I assume is pretty much the same.
The dome and ribbon tweeters are the same at all Proac speakers the differences between the models are at other areas (drivers,crossover and so on) .The Ribbon are much better at every aspect it's really a difference of day and night I can't understand why someone can consider inferior tweeters (which cost less of course) if he can get better ones.
