Will adding supertweeters to my Kefs increase dynamics?

Recently upgraded to Kef Q150s on my desktop. They sound great but Im looking for more. I considered buying some Klipsch Reference bookshelves instead, but I wondered if a super tweeter would add more punch to the high end?

So, get some Klipsch or try out some added supertweeters?
BTW, I am running a Sony amplifier with an additional Yamaha running my sub.
Maybe I just need a better amp to get the most out of the Kefs?

Ugh, where to now?

How old are you?

Supertweeters are of little value after a certain age. How old are you?

Good although you are already

Good although you are already on the cusp.

I suspect that whatever the supertweeter may bring, it is beyond the range of contributing any punch unless it misbehaves. I'd think that setup, acoustics and/or DSP would be more effective.

Thanks for your replies. I

Thanks for your replies. I really appreciate it. I suppose I could add some acoustic panels behind my speakers as they are very near the wall (small room). Thoughts on the benefits? i do have a rug on hardwood floors and curtains as well. Bookshelves to break it up a bit too.

Now my question is: Do I upgrade the amplifier and hope it livens it up a bit or get the Klipsch Reference bookshelves?

So I added back my Schiit

So I added back my Schiit Audio DAC through fibre optic. Im going to listen a bit and see what happens.

Um, wow! The garbage DAC in my receiver is just that. My little Schiit woke up the higher range quite a bit. Maybe that's all I really need for now.
Thanks for steering me away from super tweeters. That was the wrong way to go. Onward!
