BostonFan Posted September 8, 2018 Report Share Posted September 8, 2018 I just bought a pair of mint condition VR30s while impatiently waiting for a pair of VR40s to turn up somewhere. I've got a few questions for the experts in here: 1. I've not had a pair of speakers with this kind of hybrid 3-way, and I'm wondering what the crossover is actually doing. The old product brochure for the Lynnfield VR series calls it a "two-and-one-half-way" system with "unique low-frequency driver configuration." I understand the concept, with mids and bass going to the upper driver and low-end bass support via the lower driver (which is visibly a different driver than the upper). But I'm wondering how the two drivers responses actually overlap? Is it just down to the two different driver designs? Sounds tricky. Or is it just marketing trickery and a 3-way after all? Any insight from the Boston designers on the forum? 2. I've seen serial numbers on these in the 012000-range that are Lynnfield, MA labelled. Then somewhere in the 013000-range (mine) they are Peabody, MA labelled. Both "Made in USA." When did the production on these move to Peabody? (just curious about their age). 3. I'm shopping for a decent stereo receiver or integrated amp to drive them with, having only my oldish Onkyo TX-SR501 AVR free at the moment. I'm fairly brand-loyal to Onkyo and Integra, but does anyone have a recommendation for specific models or minimum power to drive these well? (...and potentially the VR40...one day.) Thanks for the help - glad I found this site. Good info and good experiences shared in here. - Brian Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
