Dayton Audio D250T-8 1" Titanium Compression Horn Driver
Dayton Audio D250T-8 1" Titanium Compression Horn Driver is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for the priceWe used these to replace the previous tweeters in self built tops that already sounded good with some EQ. These didn't need any EQ, and will allow us to lower the crossover a bit. Very satisfied with these. The pictures are of the system and side by side with previous tweeters.
