Wondering about keeping my HAT Imagines, which I have had for years, as I switch vehicles. The Imagines have always sounded a touch cold to me, so I've been considering Morels, which have a reputation for being warm, or another Speaker with a similar sound. It could be all kinds of other factors that led me to think the Imagines are cold and it isn't the speaker's fault. But my experience in other audio is that the material/design of the speakers and electronics disposes them to either on the cold (Infinity, Klipsch, solid state) side or warm (Boston Acoustic, Vandersteen, tubes) side.
I've never heard a DSP, so I wondering if it can "warm up" a cold sound. I realize that it can change the output at various frequencies, and likely what I imagine is cold vs warm is somehow a product of that. But I'd guess that the effect of, say, a metal dome vs. fabric dome is more complex and subtle than can be overcome with electronics.
If the Imagines can be transformed to warm speakers with a good DSP, I'd keep them. Otherwise, I'll sell them. Thanks in advance for replies -- it really helps someone in my position.
