Holy cow has this one been coming for a LONG TIME! Truth is, I haven’t had a Blackhawk HP available for a shootout until now. I’m not gonna waste your time with a bunch of talk; we’ll get right to the shootout video asap. I will say this, the tone of the HP surprised me a little, as it was a fair bit brighter than the regular Blackhawk, and I usually expect high-power speakers to be somewhat dull. The HP had more prominent upper-midrange in the 2-3kHz range, whereas the regular Blackhawk had more dominant lower-midrange in the 200-400Hz range. As far as apparent overall volume (sens.), they were dead-on with one another. It is important to point out, however, that the HP model was fresh out of the box, and the regular model had probably 20+ hours of play time … so the HP model may “warm-up” a little with break-in. Okay, that’s it, here’s the video … please post your comments!
