    Hi,

    I've been researching the Anthony Gallo Micro's for my HT. I emailed them about freq. range since their website is unclear. One portion says bottom is 120hz, another page says bottom is 80hz.

    The sales support at Gallo replied saying the Micros (which are about 2 years old) have been shipping with "semi-transparent drivers" for about 8 months, and they can be taken down to 80hz.

    Can someone explain how these would allow for lower frequencies?

    Thanks.

    Semi Transparent? If they meant that somewhere in production

    they changed the "material" of the driver cones over from

    a poor material to something better (PolyPropelene which can

    be made clear) then yes I suppose it is possible to improve

    the response. Better cone materials can allow the drivers

    to run with less distorsion at higher volumes with more

    power. PolyPropelene is better than "standard" paper. Perhaps

    they were using paper driver cones previously.
