Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Replacement Tweeters for my Snell JIIsThese tweeters fit the through hole just fine, though I had to route out the recessed portion for them to fit correctly. They sound great! Now my Snell JII speakers are pumping out the tunes better than ever! The ordering process was easy peasy and the items were received on time and in perfect condition! Thanks Parts Express!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great soundI bought these to match the hivi m6a. These two sound great together. However, you have to be careful when handling otherwise the protective black material on the diaphragm can start to peel off. This happened to me and there's a clear drop off comepared to the other. I can't wait for the replacement to come in. Definitely getting more for your money with these just handle carefully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great!Well how should I put this? They are as smooth as silk?... Especially for their price they are very excellent silk domes. I would use these for any of my home audio projects.Paired this with a couple of Hivi M3N's and the silky sounded great once I put an L-pad on to drop it to the level of M3N's

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supper Clean!i just built a 5 way sealed box for my first speaker project. and these tweeters are not only a great price but these tweets are the star of the show!! my friend who is into building speakers had bought some dayton tweeters from here and went for the more expensives. when i started my project he showed me these and said "i bet the sound quality is close to the same" and he was surprised how crystal clear these tweets are for the low price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for Energy Pro 22!This is, by far, the cheapest option I've found for replacing blown Energy Pro 22 tweeters, and they work well to boot! They seem to be able to handle the low crossover point of the Energys, though I haven't turned them up to ear-splitting volumes yet. I've never heard the original Energy tweeters for comparison, but I'm pretty happy with the way these turned out. You will need to come up with a way to mount them as they are significantly smaller than the Energy tweeters.

here is the speaker I am replacing a tweeter on: A KEF 104. the crossover is 3000 hz. this is with 18 db/octave. will this tweeter handle that? power for the tweeter should be around 50 W the entire driver assembly(woofer/Midrange and Tweeter 200W

Asked by:
Yes this tweeter will handle that crossover point and slope without a problem.

Are these a big step down from the reference series tweeters from dayton audio? My crossover is designed for a 8 ohm tweeter instead of a 4 ohm and the reference tweeters are not available in 8 ohm. Or would you guys recommend another tweeter?

Asked by: Macmyth
The Dayton Classic tweeter is our best seller, although it does not have quite the motor design and low distortion of the Reference tweeters. If you would like a very similar tweeter to the reference that is 8 ohm, consider the Usher 9930-20 or 9950-20 instead.

Hello, are people using these with the acoustic research ar6. Looking for a replacement. I think crossover point on ar6 is 1800. Thanks

Asked by: hobbithunter
These make great replacement tweeters for many different speakers. They will handle a crossover at 1800 so as long as they will fit in the cabinet or you can modify it, they will be a good choice.

I'm reading mine at around 5.5-6Ω.  Is this normal?  Are they just that sensitive?  Should my crossover be for 8Ω or a 6Ω?

Asked by: morphemes
Yes this is normal. These have a slightly lower than average DCR although they are considered a nominal impedance of 8 ohm and will work with 6 or 8 ohm crossovers.
