Re: Super HL5 Super Tweeter
The function of a super tweeter is nothing more than to boost the extreme high frequencies. Some believe that these frequencies right on the very edge of human hearing are influential in more accurately capturing the subtle nuances in music.
As a history scholar you're most welcome here. All the really great work in acoustics has been long researched. By the time you are in middle age and when a method has been found to directly inject 'sound' into the brain, all of this will seem as distant and remote as the industrial revolution. All I'd ask you to remember is that we, like they, were doing our best with the knowledge and tools we had available at the time. If we had more knowledge or better tools we could and would definitely do better. In the meantime, to be worthy of our place in history as those early engineers were, there is no place for anything other than proper attention to common sense and logic.
