Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter
Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter is rated 4.66 out of 5 by 100.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome TweeterI have to say I was skeptical about purchasing the Dayton DC28F-8 even after reading all of the excellent reviews. I wanted a Euro sound but I needed the X-over to be at 1.8kHz for a 2 way system. After miking the tweeter I found the response curve to be right on spec and created a 3rd order X-over at 1.8KHz. Applying it to my system was effortless and the overall sound curve looked excellent. When I gave my new speakers the final listening test I have to say I was amazed at the spacial and smooth sound quality that the Dayton DC28F-8's put out! I mean they sound great! Plastic, yes – low cost, yes but there is no need to spend more money to get this kind of sound.Very impressed!

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!

How can I test the polarity on these?

Asked by: Lerneg
There isn't a very good method of testing polarity on a tweeter since the normal battery test won't yield much of a result, and can be dangerous for a tweeter. The polarity is marked in red on these. If the marking is no longer visible, the left terminal as pictured on our website is positive.

Would these work well with the GSR 8PR-8 (Part  # 292-428)? if so, which crossover should I use?

Asked by: kvdenney
This should work well with a low crossover point. The lowest we offer is 2kHz which you can see below.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-xo2w-2k-2-way-speaker-crossover-2000-hz--260-140

I am considering using this tweeter with the Dayton DS175-8 6 1/2" woofer. Woofer response is up to 4500 Hz. Tweeter response is down to 1300 Hz. Within that range, do you have a recommended crossover frequency for this pair ? Why ? thanks

Asked by: bwmac256
I would recommend a crossover point of about 2kHz for this combination. The upper end of the woofer starts to droop a bit and the lower crossover point will help eliminate beaming at higher frequencies.

Can this tweeter be used in the Dynaco A-50?  The xo is at 1 KHz. 

Asked by: billydog
I would not recommend this tweeter for a crossover that low. Depending on the slope, we don't have any 1" tweeter options that will be able to be crossed that low.
