The High End of Things
As I have mentioned earlier, we have silk dome tweeters which generally speaking should provide these particular speakers with some advantage over the majority of the competition at the moment to some degree. Near field tests were initially quite good with reasonably smooth upper-mid to high end response in a range of test tracks I was playing.
I initially began with some electronic music which always has plenty of dynamic high-end to warm up those nice new dome tweeters; and let me say right off the bat they don't give up easy. These things really impressed me with their ability to produce clear well maintained upper presence right to the point of 100% volume. That's right folks; full volume (including my soundcard's own amplified outputs) pumped away without a hint of distortion. Top marks right away there for matching a tweeter with an amp that does not conflict in tolerance/output as to course distortion between the two.
Maintaining a smooth balance between the upper-mid frequencies at the 14-18k range can be a tricky prospect for all designers, and it's an area where time and attention must be paid to use a quality crossover network, which put simply is up to the job of splitting the frequencies correctly to avoid spillage. The end result avoids muddy high-end and a loss of upper mid crispness.
On the whole I think GIGABYTE has used a fairy good crossover for the tweeters, and whilst not silky smooth like the "Crossfires" they are very combatant at what they do, and they're much more capable of showing up shortfalls in material over the Logitechs. This is really just a result of the tweeter, but goodness nonetheless.
In short, I really like the dome tweeters GIGABYTE have chosen to use here; I think they provide what they're set out to do very well.
