I'd like to try it. If I find that the highs are a problem, do you think a super-tweeter such as this Aperion would be a good solution?:https://www.aperionaudio.com/blogs/aperion-audio-blog/an-introduction-of-the-super-tweeter-speakerThanks for all the advice. Most appreciated.

As Roseanne Roseannadanna used to say, ‘it’s always somthin’ –which is what makes speaker building an interesting balance between an art and a science.
As with many planar speakers, full rangers will roll-off quicker off-axis than a small dome tweeter, but they do avoid the issues of dealing with nasty crossover affects.
The fun thing about going to the DIY events is getting to see and hear the different speaker approaches, the downside is what to do with the previous 3 sets of speakers in the basement you’ve made in your quest for incorporating what you’ve liked from the last event...
Go for what subjectively pleases your ears.
