Wilson Audio Duette / Custom Crossover Upgrade
@hilde45  Yeah --it's not scoffing. You don't really understand Fritz. He's a master speaker maker and has been doing it 40 years. He's a boutique maker and has very high standards. Others here who know Fritz will testify to the dis-analogy betw...

@pwerahera  I don't think stereophile review of this speaker is great. Summary says Sophia 3 is better value. Whenever the reviewer bring another model into the summary, the model reviewed is pretty much a dead duck. And your own experience sa...

Folks, you should be able to see 5 different frequency response measurements in the initial post, including a spectral decay measurement.  I can see them. If you can't see those, let me know and I will repost, linking to a different source for the...

@hilde45 I wouldn’t have Danny "fix" a Fritz speaker. That’s like asking Thomas Kinkade to touch up a Leonardo. I get it. It can be a lot easier to dismiss than it is to seek. I’m sure many would scoff about messing with a Wilson Audio product...

@erik_squires Also, hands down, Fritz makes a better sounding 2-way speaker that don’t require crossover upgrades. Erik, this may be of interest to you. You might find it worthwhile to reach out to Danny regarding the "Fritz Carbon 7SE" speaker...
