Dayton Audio AMT Mini-8 Air Motion Transformer Tweeter 8 Ohm
How would this tweeter work in replacing the tweeter and super tweeter in Dahlquist DQ10? The existing crossover for tweeters is 6K and 12K for the super.
As long as the crossovers are at least second order this should work fine, although there will be no point in using a second identical tweeter crossed at 12kHz as a super tweeter since the other will be reproducing the same frequencies.

To use the larger faceplate, can I remove the existing plate, or does the larger plate only go over top. I am concerned that the extra thickness of both plates may cause some phase cancellation problems, but I don't want to damage them.
I attempted to remove the small faceplate but it did not come loose, so the larger faceplate must be designed to mount of top of the smaller plate.

Can I swap these in the t652 speakers? Would they be a big improvement?
The B652-Air ( Part 300-651) uses an AMT tweeter comparable to this but yes you can swap it out. It will add a nice airy sound to it.

Mounting these in a xploder to a 115w ch alpine amp. Could I run these at that wattage with a lower value on the cap and add a resistor?
The power handling of the tweeters will not change regardless of the crossover point (unless its too low obviously). The amount of output you will be able to get with that power will change. As long as these are crossed at or above their recommended crossover frequency you should not have any issues, but they will not handle the full 115 watts.

what's the overall plate diameter that comes with the twitter? thanks.
The overall diameter of the included faceplate is 2-1/4".

Can i run this with dayton rs100 n rs180 part of a 3 way front run actively?
Yes this will work fine in an active setup with those drivers.

I am thinking about building a 2-way bookshelf speaker using this AMT tweeter and a Visaton 5 inch woofer Part # 292-564. Would this be a good combination? What should I cross it over at and can you recommend a crossover for me? Thanks for the help.
Unfortunately this tweeter will only work well as a dedicated super tweeter or in a small 3-way design. I would not recommend crossing it over any lower than about 8 kHz, and that woofer will only play well up to about 4 kHz.

What's the diameter of the face plates that come with these now?
Diameter is 55mm. This will replace the original small face plate.

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.
