What value(s) for caps and resisters to make a first ...or perhaps a 2nd order cover...to use this as a super tweeter for my floor standing speaker that could use a bit mor air....crossed over at say 10K ( or would you recommend an over crossover point)
I would recommend a second order which would use values such as 1.5 uF and 0.2 mH. This will create a crossover point of 10,000 Hz.

Would like to use these in a vehicle. What value capacitors would you recommend for a simple 1st or 2nd order crossover?
I would recommend a 3.3 uF cap for this if you want to go first order. If you want second order, part number 266-474 will work well.

I have a portable speaker build in mind that will probably see lots of bumps/vibrations. How durable are these things, compared to conventional domes etc?
These will hold up as well as any other type tweeter in terms of durability.

I purchase a pair of these AMTs before you offered free face plate. Can I still get a pair of face plates?
We may be able to work something out if you call our tech department. We do not offer these separately so we will have to try and see if we have any that came back with a defective or damaged product.

Can this be used as a driver in a headphone? Seems like the biggest challenge would be the impedance; headphones tend to be much higher impedance than speakers.
Unfortunately this would not make for a very good headphone driver due to its lack of anything below about 5,000 Hz and extreme lack of excursion of any kind.

Is this price for one driver or for a pair of drivers?
This price is for one driver.

lowest crossover points
Hello,just wondering what the recommended crossover points are for 2nd order and also if a 1st is possible at say, 10khz and upmany thanks
Lowest crossover I would recommend for 2nd order would be about 9kHz, 1st order would have to be closer to 15 kHz.

What size hole do I cut ??
"This tweeter is designed for press-fit mounting"Overall diameter: 1.59"So that's about 1 5/8?
1-5/8" will be slightly larger so you may want to start with 1-9/16. This is slightly smaller but it will be easier to ream a hole out gradually than try to make one smaller. Obviously test holes are recommended.

how to mount in a mid woofer
In the discription u say this product can be "installed in the center of a mid-woofer to create a full-bandwidth coaxial driver," How exactly might this be done for example ? Or are u talking at the manufacturing level?
It could be done with some fabrication, such as a bracket, or mounted on a post coming from the pole of the motor (this would require removal of a phase plug - if equipped, or removal of the dustcap - which may affect driver characteristics and parameters). It would resemble a coaxial car audio driver.
