I think the Heil replacement is actually a dynamic instead of the original
crystal. I seem to recall seeing some specs on it, and it pretty well cuts
everything off below about 300~. The original Astatic xtal element responds
down to 100~ or below, if you work it into a 5-10 megohm load.
If Bob Heil got enough requests, he might be willing to custom make one with
good low frequency response while keeping the characteristic D-104
acoustical presence rise.
