Don (February 12, 2009): ESS lititure does not clasify the ESS Grand Heil transformer as a ribbon speaker. It is a unique design. From their brochure: "The Heil's lightweight Teflon Diaphragm, eqivalent in surface area to an eight inch mid-range, is accordion-folded into a one inch pleated band. The diaphragm squeezes air between its pleats at five times its own speed, resulting in extremely swift air acceleration." It is more like an electrostatic driven air pump.

steve (February 7, 2007): In it's own box is the "big heil" tweeter with a crossover adjustable at 1khz or 5khz. Looks like it was made to be an add on device for a speaker system such as a helper tweeter or something like that. As of jan 2007 I own a pair of these and use them as mid/tweeter in my setup. They sound beautiful. I will never give them up. Would like to hear from some others that have this same interest. kc8vpx@hotmail.com
