Anyone have specifications or know anything about Sony XS-R1 ribbon tweeters?

I picked up a pair along with a set of XES-F50s from a guy.

Do these compare at all with the XES-H50s?

I've searched everywhere and cannot find any info on them.

Appreciate anything anyone can provide.

Thanks,
Jesse

I believe the Sony ribbons required a 5,000 Hz and above cutoff point if that helps any. Also, for any ribbon tweeter, make sure they're as on-axis to the listener as possible.

First....

If you are using these outside of an XES system (Z-50 and M-50) you will have to come up with a comparable alternative to use them. Otherwise, you will compromise their design....and lose the bennefit of having them in the first place....

So....

The R-1's and the H50's have identicle requirements. By that, I mean either set needs a 7k and up @ 72dB per oct. And, NEVER "pop" them w/ a battery!!!

The F50's (full range driver) needs to be band-passed from 80-8k again, @ 72dB per oct. As you know, a wekaer slope is going to negatively effect your output across all freq.

Finally, Laker could not be more correct in his statement about on-axis placement. The Z-50 allowed for time alignment....further sweetening the deal...

Hmm...I didn't realize they required the 72db/octave slope. I sold my XES-p1/x1 setup. I may have to go with an XDP-4000x on my C910 then.

Appreciate the input...that is very helpful.

That would work. As you know, the 4000 will allow the band-pass you need for the F50's too. You can download DSC, but I can't begin to tell you who has the interface cable.

The 4000x doesn't have a standard serial connection? Please elaborate...

Is it 7K?? Jesus that's high. Those mids that came with the set must have gone pretty damned high. Did those mids by chance sacrifice lower midbass response for a lighter cone?

80-8k....no sacrifice there.

1) Hello IM distortion!
2) I bet those are the -10dB points
3) Manufacturers always overstate the frequency response
