Thors to me is one of the worst sounding dynamics I have ever owned
Odd your opinion, Based on my talk with Josh at Madisound, he too feels Excel drivers are extremely neutral, zero coloration/fatgue, Troels has very high opinions of Seas Excel. Tyler used exclusively Excel in his designs. Joseph Audio employs Excel.
Thing is with Excel and all seas and MOST Scanspeak drivers, woofers/tweeters is the low sensitivity.
I was running the dual W18's as assist mode w the FR, but figured it was not needed.
All woofers, have a roll off at 40hz. You claijm to geta SOLID 30hz ((90db??, lucky you get 80 db = worthless). Woofers sens starts at 50db, no matter what Seas/Scanspeaks charts claim.
For my exclusive classical music a FR w 92/ for the 6incher and 94db for the 8 incher solved this issue of low sens in the 50hz -100hz range. Tweeters is another matter.
I guess for Jazz you might wanta woofer for extra punch in the lows, but I heard no need for a woofer. Both FR cones managed very well in the bass depatment, No, for me woofers are worthless trash, pure snakeoil.
