The frequency response, acquired with the method of the "Free Field Response", shows a "canonical" high-pass of about 24 dB/oct and a good extension on the low frequencies. Beyond 700 Hz the trend has a slight decrease, around two-three dB, while in high range, after an emphasis localized between 7 and 10 kHz, a strict and deep depression appears between the emission of the tweeter and the supwertweeter. The sickle shows itself with a maximum attenuation of 8,5 dB cantered at 13800 Hz, cross frequency between the two transducers.
