    To me, that couldnt be the original design intention, its just a way to corrupt a fine system.
    No not at all. Ken designed speakers to be used "as is".
    But treble and bass extension have never been priorities for him.

    With Kens speakers, both frequency extremes are always domesticated, but that doesnt mean that treble and bass have no priority for him. In fact, he spend much effort to give them the qualities they have with his speaker designs.
    To use a third party, low budget tweeter with them is like ordering ketchup to a three star dinner. But there always will be people who prefer this taste.

    Hi, is there someone who have compared a Shindo Petite or big latour in a Shindo system with a Western electric / Line Magnetic 22a or 16a horn speaker? Where are the strength of each speakers?

    The difference is, that Ken refined his speakers to a certain level of quality. And quality is mostly indiscribable. Even by auditioning, some people will still miss the point. One of those several points is coherence. An excellent chef can create such a meal with some different components combining. An amateur in Western Electric loudspeaker systems won't be able to let it shine the way Western Electric once intended it.

    LOL. I owned and still own enough Shindo to participate on this thread.
