G Four - possible distortion on high freqs

Hi,
Just received a new pair of G Four (to replace 8030A + 7050B). I'm not sure, but I'm sensing the tweeter of the other G Four might have some distortion on high frequencies. As I said, I'm not sure. Is there a way to test this? I can use computer to generate some simple signals.

Thanks.

Hi,

It is difficult to test distortion without proper measurement device. If it is severe enough, you might be able to hear the difference to the other speaker if you know how the distortion sounds like.

You can try to play back a sine wave sweep through your speaker (one at a time) and listen if the high frequencies sound any different. Please use a reasonable level so that it won't hurt your ears.
