Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter
Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter is rated 4.6239 out of 5 by 109.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Questionable build qualityI just bought a pair of these for two mid 1980s Technics speakers that I am rebuilding. The main reason that I chose them was for all of the positive reviews and that they were the only tweeter available that fit the cabs without major surgery. Keep in mind that I have not heard them play music as of yet. These are just my first impressions of them.1. The terminals are very fragile. I would suggest opening up your connectors a bit before trying to attach them. Any reasonable pressure at all will break the mounts.2. Not a fan of the bug-eye design. The dome protrudes a good 1/4" beyond the face plate. This makes it very susceptible to damage from anything coming into contact with the speaker baffle. Besides, it just looks goofy.3. This is my biggest concern. There is a large dip in the frequency response between 7k and 9k (see image). Both tweeters measured almost exactly the same.So far I have modeled them into a 3-way 2nd order crossover -- crossed at 4k. Parts have been ordered and I will start testing the design this week. I'll update this review when I have results and a final opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't be betterThese are fantastic sounding tweeters. I am using them in my first build and they are so crisp and clear, but yet don't over power my mids at all. The only negative thing I have to say is that the silk dome is actually coated with some sort of a rubbery substance and they are slightly sticky to the touch. I only mention this because my drill kicked up the tiniest bit of dust which landed on one of them. I tried to blow them clean, but because of the slight stickiness, the dust will not blow off. Like I said, it is only a tiny bit of dust, and for my application it doesn't matter, or affect the sound. However, if you are flush mounting these, and one gets dust on it, it will be noticeable because sawdust is light colored. Get any dust on these and it is not coming off unless you are willing to potentially damage them.

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 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 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.

I replaced some JBL Ultra 1230's and I can actually hear the cymbals and things that "high-end" tweeters don't pick up. I have them crossed at 2.5k, but I'm going to put 2 more in my MTM's and cross them at 1.8k.

Made the swap, cued up a record, sat in the sweet spot and all I can say is WOW! Did not expect this level of performance for the money! I have used tweets from other big name makers at more than twice the price and have felt I was missing something...Don't think I'll be looking to upgrade for a long time. Would have gladly paid more for a metal faceplate...just say'n

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well taken care of.I purchased a couple pairs of these tweeters for a couple speaker projects. Installed them in the a set of 3 way speakers a couple months ago and they sounded great right out of the box and still sound great now.Finished up another set today except one of the tweeters in the remaining pair had a little cosmetic issue so I called customer service and I am VERY happy with their attention to my problem. I have placed a few orders for various speakers/crossover parts with PE over the last few months and in all ways am so far very satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Work great in Karma IndigniasI built a pair of Karma Indignias (see project page on Parts Express) and liked them well enough to build a second pair.It would be nice if this tweeter had more screw holes for mounting - three is not enough; the flange visibly bends as the foam backing compresses under the pressure of the screws. I'll end up drilling more holes I think.The tweeter surface is tacky and so gathers dust.See also the DC28FT-8, which is the same tweeter with a truncated flange (and 4 mounting holes). It is frequently cheaper than this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp, uncolored soundI'm using these tweeters with a passive 1st-order series crossover at 4000 Hz, so they're not being excessively taxed with low-frequency information, and should be well within their comfort zone.That said, the sound is very crisp and precise, revealing a lot of detail (such as MP3 artifacts) that my previous PC speakers could not. They also sound flat and uncolored to me, not (de-)emphasizing any frequency within my ability to detect.The sticky substance coating the silk dome tends to pick up dust, but this has not affected the sound quality. These tweeters also have a substantial amount of backing foam, so they will easily seal against a variety of cutouts shapes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's so easy to fall in love....I can't think of any more superlatives to use for this tweeter. It's smooth, detailed and articulate. There, I thought of three more descriptives. I suspect that if you like the forward, in-your-face sound of hard-dome tweeters you may not like this one. All the frequencies are there, for sure, but your attention is not drawn to the tweeter. Instead, it integrates with the whole. Just as I like it. The only issue I have with the DC28F is the oft mentioned stickiness of the heavily-doped silk dome. Dusty environs are not good. Even so, I've found a new love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tweeter For The Price... ButPros - Clean Clear Sound, Good Build Quality, Low Fs, 8 ohm. Very good tweeter.Cons - Tweeter dome is sticky. Weather your careful and keep it clean while your building your speakers or after they are done and sit in a room for a while. Anything like dust and debris that floats by this tweeter will end up sticking to the dome over time. Once this has happened there is no real good way to clean the tweeters dome. I've worked with these tweeters on 3 occasions and all three sets where sticky.The 3 hole faceplate makes no since but can easily be modified to 6 holes with a drill.Summery - Great tweeter for the price.....but do to the annoying sticky dome and what it turns into after a few years of dust collecting on it.... I will have to pass and go with the Vifa BC25TG15-04 1" Silk Dome Tweeter (264-1040) Sounds just as good, has the desired 4 hole face plate, can be used as a 8 ohm tweeter with the cheap addition of a 4 ohm resistor, costs less and doesn't have the STICKY dome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very smooth and cleanI just replaced the tweeters and midranges in my 1996 Optimus STS-200 3-way speaker system. I used this tweeter and a Goldwood GM-85/8 5" Heavy Duty sealed midrange from Parts Express. Both did not match up with the OEM drivers. I had to get the jigsaw out for the tweeters and drill new holes for both drivers. Once the work was done, hooked them up to my H/K stereo receiver. The midrange drivers are absolutely 100% better then the OEM ones. Since this speaker system is sealed, I had to insert wood screws into the existing holes to maintain the acoustic seal (see pics). They sound smooth and refined. I did not change the stock crossover points. Here is what I found on the tweeters:PROS: Extremely clean sound, smooth, well definedCONS: Terminals are a little fragile, dome is sticky...collected sawdust

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using the sticky, silky tweeter DC28F 1 1/8"Usually I would have used the Morel MDT 12 1 1/8" tweeter, But since this was a replacement for , a "long in the tooth" University T-202 sphericon super tweeter, the Morel would fall through the existing cut out. Also I wanted a tweeter that had a SPL, similar to the Audax 4 1/4" mid/bass that would be in the same enclosure.. Note: The Spjericon was too efficient and bright and even with the level control turned almost off it was not a good balance for the Audax midrange. I also changed the crossover freq. to 5000 Hz from 3000Hz. I did not use a crossover to the midrange, but, let its natural decay take care of the transition. A 5000 Hz high pass filter was used for the tweeter (12Db/octave)..The tweeter lives up to its name and is smooth and silky, and it matches the Audax Midrange perfectly. Would the Morel be a better choice? Hard to say, as they have very similar sound and tonal characteristics. I am surprised that the silk dome of the tweeter is very sticky (damping material??) I tried to brush off a piece of lint, but, it is not going to move with gentle nudging. That is my only complaint..Warren

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have 4 of theseI put a pair in my custom 6 FT tall PVC towers with double 5.25 woofers,(Polks.) Then two in my 4 x15 inch ft high wood custom enclosures with 2.5 Dayton classics.So I put this oneMorel MDT 12 1-1/8" Neodymium Tweeter In my other custom made enclosure.It has a 6 inch Polk.As all the speakers are different in many ways it is difficult to compare sounds.But these Dayton silk domes leave me nothing to complain about .They seem slightly laid back in comparison with the Morel .But I like all of the tweeters. I had AR speakers in the past which was also soft at the top.I liked the East coast sound. The Morel comes in perfectly clear.Somewhere near the JBL top end is my feeling.(But not as radical.) So I would not remove any of the tweeters as I like them all .I have a pair of phenolic ring tweeters coming in this week So on my forth speaker project I can compare all the tweeters. I think I will still enjoy all of them. The Daytons would be fine on any project though.I have budget limits so I am happy they are available.But I would like to test some expensive ribbons soon. I still would not remove the Daytons.The enclosure boxes are fun to build anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet and Smooth Tweeter!This tweeter has an amazing sound and great range. I am using these on a prototype speaker I am building with 2 Vifa 6 1/2 inch woofers per speaker. The tweeter has such a good frequency range and impact that it makes the set have a sweet mellow yet precise sound with excellent high end. Listening to Such Great Heights by The Postal Service displayed the impact that these are capable of. I do not know how it deals with the lower mids since I am using an old ADS 700 crossover currently since I have not built a custom one yet. But overall from what I hear now, these tweeters are especially great for critical listening or monitors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound, terrible terminals!These tweeters sound very smooth and seem to be of good overall quality. BUT, my major complaint is that the melting point of the plastic which supports the terminals is very low, which causes it to get soft very quickly when you try to solder onto the terminals. The plastic on mine melted within 5 seconds of soldering leaving the terminal minimal support, and adding tension to the single copper strand leading to the voice coil. Use crimp on connectors or a wet cloth on the plastic if you want to solder.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Output to low for Cerwin Vega as replacement tweeter.I ordered a pair of Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeters to replace the tweeters in a pair of old Cerwin Vega 12” 3 way systems (E-312) one of which had a burned out tweeter. I auditioned one of the DC28F-8 tweeters in one CV system side by side of the CV system with the OEM CV tweeter. The DC28F-8 SPL of 89 dB 1W/1m proved to be insufficient to keep up with the SPL of the CV systems. I than ordered a pair of Dayton Audio DC25T-8 1" Titanium Dome Tweeters with a 4 dB higher SPL of 93 dB 1W/1m and repeated the same side by side audition. The output of the DC25T-8 appeared to be a perfect match with the CV systems with a more natural sound and better off axis response.

Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter

Can you recomend a midrange that match's well with the Dayton DC28F-8 silky and the Dayton DC200-8 8" woofer? The midrange cannot be larger then 31/2" in overall diameter. Maybe a truncated 4".

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.

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.

Curious about using a pair of these in a 2 way setup in a car audio install,.whats the lowest crossover point they can be used at? Im using a Alpine 9887 headunit which supports 6db, 12db, 18db, and 24db slopes, would i be ok with 1.2hz and a 24db slope? 

Asked by: Teezy
I would not recommend this for a crossover point that low, even at 24 dB/octave. The lowest I would go with this tweeter is about 1,600 Hz. Something like our RS28A would handle 1,200 at 24 dB however.

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.

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.

Recommended crossover frequency in a two-way system

I'm planning a first order crossover at 2,000 hz, to be used in conjunction with a GRS 10PR-8 10" woofer, 35 -3,000 hz. Is the tweeter okay at 2,000, or better at a higher x-o frequency? How high is too high for the woofer?
Asked by: Johnny Reno
The tweeter is good to about 2500 hz with a first order crossover. Your 10" is not really a good match though... Here's a simple cheat... If you want to do a speaker with a 6db crossover... If a driver is spec'd from 500 - 5000 hz... then it's usable range is 1000 - 2500... Half the numbers... So your tweeter has a low end of 1300, so 2500 is safe. Your woofer choice however has a high end of 3000, so 2500 is too high for it to operate musically. Also - from about 500 - 800 you're in the critical mid-bass and you want the best sound from this range... Maybe a three way? Or a great two way with a 6" driver and separate sub?

Can you clean the silk dome?

I just built the BR-1S kit and during the process got sawdust all over the tweeter dome itself. The dome seems to be sticky and I didn't want to damage it by scraping the sawdust off. Any suggestions? Is there a liquid I could use to gently wipe on it without hurting the dome?

Hmm toughy. You could try alcohol but nothing more stronget than that. Spray alcohol on and blow the particals off with Dust-chaser. You never want to touch the dome.WE learn these things by doing: dont take the drivers out of thier boxes until you are ready to mount them.

Flush mount? Can the flange be trimmed?

I'm trying to replace the ruined drivers in an old Allison CD-6 cube. The original tweeters were flush with the cabinet face. Should this tweeter be mounted so that the top of the flange is flush with the cabinet? The originals were exactly 4" dia. Can I trim the flange on this down without ruining it, or am I better off expanding the diameter of the recess on the cabinet?

Cutout Diameter Clarification

Stated cutout diameter is 3-1/8 inches. Does this include space needed for the terminals, or is there some additional material needed to be removed to enclose the terminals?My existing tweeters in old KLH Model Cl-4s are 2-7/8 in diameter for the body with a "notch" for the terminals, so I would have to enlarge the hole it appears. They are 1-in VCs if I am not mistaken.

What is the outer diameter of the tweeter (is it 4 5/16?) and the sitance between the screwholes?

I just want to make sure they will fit.

Yes, the overall diameter is 4-5/16", and the distance between the mounting holes is approximately 3-5/16", center-to-center.
