Description

SEAS Prestige 27TBCD/GB-DXT (H1499) Tweeter

27TBCD/GB-DXT is a High Definition aluminium/magnesium alloy dome tweeter with DXT® lens.  An optimally shaped dome and a wide SONOMEX surround, both maufactured by SEAS, ensure excellent performance and consistency. The compensation magnet increases the sensitivity and reduces the magnetic strayfield and allows use in close proximity to CRT screens. A fine mesh grid protects the diaphragm. Stiff and stable rear chamber with optimal acoustic damping allows the tweeter to be used with moderately low crossover frequencies. This revolutionary DXT® tweeter addresses the major issues regarding directivity control in traditional loudspeaker designs. DXT® solves several well-know issues regarding; directivity control, off-axis response, integration with midrange units and baffle diffractions.

The H1499 and H1571 are used in the Idunn speaker kit.

A taste of exceptional dispersion
This tweeter features low harmonic distortion in the recommended range, combined with top-of-line final response (with the help of crossover) and exceptional dispersion. The sound result exceeded expectations! No wonder that controlled dispersion systems are in vogue now. It is no longer necessary to stand still when listening to quality music.
I combined this with the SEAS tweeter ER18 Reed Cone, with the crossover at acoustical 12dB/octave circa 2.5kHz, as some famous projects on the Internet, with meager changes to the correct response in my baffle. No trouble with 60W amp power! This tweeter handles this well.
It is interesting to note how a technically correct system such as this coincided with a high emotionality during the hearings; many songs never sounded so magical as now!
No need to talk about the resolution of this tweeter; It is above average and reveals a realistic amount of detail without being clinical or analytical.

Very recommended!

Very nice, unique tweeters
I used these in an Sb Acoustic/Seas three way speaker and find the sound of them to be very good. I've read some say that they're a little boring, but I don't find that to be the case at all. They do take more work than a typical dome tweeter to hammer into shape and get them integrated properly. Depending on your baffle, a notch around 5500Hz is basically a must, but after this is taken care of, a smooth 2nd order LR slope was easily achievable for me at 2600Hz. They can be used quite a bit lower than this without problems depending on your power handling requirements.

I was expecting a metal face plate for the price, but I assume this is a manufacturing issue with the DXT lens. But, just know that it is plastic.

fantastic!
I've always been a soft dome or ribbon kind of guy but these tweeters are amazing!
not only are the surprisingly soft sounding but the detail is amazingly clean without that typical metal dome harshness.
i paired these with some Seas H1488-08 woofers which are said to only get as high as about 2200hz before getting nasty.
I crossed these over at 2200hz 24/db and the blend of these two drivers is something enjoyable for sure.
I'm loving this combo, the bass is extraordinary and well controlled in the .41 cuft enclosures I put these in.
dont hesitate to pick these tweeters up they're great!
