Are the vocals any better now?  Have you played with positioning, listening position, etc...?  With that kind of driver spacing, I would imagine moving them back may help.

 Best to ask someone better versed in physics, but I think the idea is that an appropriately designed wave guide shapes the dispersion such that it leaves the baffle "intact" and as such, the wave front of the tweeter can be considered as somewhere along the waveguide rather way back at the tweeter.

Just a final summary of everything I have heard from the Spirit 1

Well the time has come. I have not listened to my stereo all week and when I turned it on I was heartbroken. I knew something was missing. The Spirit 1's. Then I remembered Lonewolfe lent me his TP Mini's ,so I hooked them up and VIOLA . The sound that was missing. Almost, except for the bass.The Spirit1 goes much lower. The Spirit 1's were gone and this was the only way to experience them again. The Spirit 1's have a very natural "you are there" sound to me. I keep emphasizing the bass only because they go low and bring out the lower registers in my music and add such a great deal of dimension. The imaging is superb, the best I have heard in my room yet. Cymbals are so real sounding that I get chills up and down my spine. I can raise the volume and the music is clear and precise and no distortion,effortless. Every instrument is separated from each other superbly. I never thought I would be so GA GA over a monitor , but I am. And you know what is going to happen now ?

Thanks to Bob Smith of Aether Audio for the demo and for making one of his designs easier on the wallet. And only because of no custom cabinet. Otherwise I think these would cost more than the Mini's.

Here is a list of associated equipment

Odyssey Candela
Butler TDB-2250
marantz SA15S1
Salk Songtowers

And let me clarify that these are not the best speaker in the world....but they will put many floor standers to shame . these thoughts are based upon my listening impressions and a few others and what seems to work best in my room.
