The best tweeter ever.
I bought a pair of these after a lot of research. It was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. These tweeters are phenomenal. Pairing them with a very modified A7 bottom with Lansing 515B woofers and JBL 2441 drivers with "deadened" 2350 horns, made a match made in heaven. Using an active crossover with time alignment and dedicated amps made these tweeters so musical. After many hours of listening and minor phase time adjustments the soundstage opened up like never before. With a live recording you could actually get a feel for how big the room was and of conversations coming from the audience that I had never heard. The ambiance was incredible. Would I recommend them………..Hell yes!! They ARE worth the money!
