Beston RT002A Ribbon Tweeter
i have a pair of legacy signature 1's will this ribbon driver be a direct replacement for them? if not what would? legacy do not carry these drivers for this model anymore.

If I crossed it at 5 KHz instead of the recommended 2.5 KHz, will it have any effect on its power handling capacity? In other words, I'd like to use it as a super tweeter in a 100W RMS system but possibly crossed at 10 or 12 KHz - will it work? Thanks.
This tweeter will handle its full power capacity regardless whether it is crossed at 2.5kHz or 5kHz. Yes it will work crossed even higher as a super tweeter.

Dear sir, Beston RT002A Ribbon Tweeter, I want to make super tweeter. Pls tell me to make crosover aplication for Beston RT002A Ribbon Tweeter running above 30 khz (capacitor ?uf, inductor ?uf...) Thank you so much, NGUYEN THACH ANH KIET HCMC,VIETNAM
At that kind of frequency you will only need a cap, and the tweeter will most likely not make any kind of difference audibly to the system since most people cannot hear anything above about 17kHz. You will need a cap value of about 0.9 uF in order to cross this over at 30 kHz.

I like the sound of ribbon hi freq drivers and I am interested in paring these with a 200w (rms)12" woofer and using it as a stage monitor.. How well would this driver handle live sound situations??
I would not recommend using this for an application like that. The sensitivity is not high enough and they can be very fragile.

can any of your ribbon tweeters be use in a monitor for live music? any help will be app
Ribbons have been used in pro applications like this before so there is nothing wrong with it per se. As long as it is crossed over properly and used within its thermal limits you should be fine.

Actual horizontal & vertical dispersion?
Does anyone know what the actual horizontal & vertical dispersion is on these? I know most ribbons are relatively wide horizontal and narrow vertical, but with the horn loading on these I would appreciate some more input.
Although these have a waveguide horn flare they still perfoem very much liek a planar ribbon tweeter. They do have more horozontal disspersion but the differance between the horozontal and vertical plane isnt that much noticable, they have a pretty good even converage pattern in both directions. They are not like a conventional horn that is very direcitonal at all. I think Bestron mainly did it for looks
