Dayton Audio DC28FT-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Truncated Tweeter
Dayton Audio DC28FT-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Truncated Tweeter is rated 4.5455 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW. What a difference.Back in '09 bought a pair of BIC Model 1530 speakers (3 way. 15" woofer, 5" mid, 2" tweeter). Instead of a 3 way cross-over, they come with "Speaker Protection Circuitry" that shuts down the speaker due to excessive input or abnormal signals. Big pain in the rear. Decided to put in a 3 way cross-over (Parts Express Part # 260-210) and remove the circuitry. At the same time it was suggested in another review to replace the tweeters with Seas 22TAF/G alloy dome tweeters ($36/each in "11), which I did. Sounded much better in this configuration, but twice blew one of the tweeters. After the second time (a week or so ago) decided to go another route and found these. Just finished replacing and what a difference. Seems to really complement the mid, which is pretty bright, and for that matter the woofer. Better than the prior tweeter. Smoother and, hard to explain, just a better overall sound from the entire speaker. Now listening to Robert Palmer's "Sneakin' Sally Through The Alley" and it never sounded better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice soundI bought these for a boombox project. I made a great choice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I thought it might grow on meThe good:Low crossover pointDecent power handlingTransparentLow distortionThe bad:Pricekind of dull sounding.I have a pair of these matched to the Dayton Audio DC160s and they sound okay. You could listen to these all day without a lot of ear strain. My problem is I like a little more sparkle than your average tweeter; something akin to the Motorola horns used in pro audio or the LeSon tweeters used in acoustic and keyboard amps. I completed a recent project using some no name brand 1" soft dome tweeters I got for less than 3 bucks apiece on sale. These $3.00 tweeters sound way better than the Daytons and have a 1.5 - 20k response and will handle 30/60 watts rms/peak. They are also more pleasing to me than the Dayton PT2C. Yes really, by a long shot. But these Dayton tweeters aren't all that bad. They're just not what I like because what I like is different from most people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic TweetersI purchased these tweeters to replace Polk Audio SL 2500 tweeters. They fit into the old tweeter space of the cabinets perfectly, with slight wood trimming for the terminals.They sound fantastic!These tweeters are a great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these tweetersI used the DC28FT-8 along with a “DS175-8” woofer to replace my stock Mordaunt Short front channel drivers. I also upgraded the stock crossover to “XO2W-2K”. I’m extremely happy with the results, the DC28FT are absolutely awesome tweeters. The front channel's are used for both listening to music and as part of a Dolby 6.1 setup for movies. In both cases high range performance exceeded my expectations.Part-Express also gave excellent technical support. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from restoration completeI have these installed with Jamo 20418 8" woofers and 10" passive radiators in vintage acoustic suspension cabinets. The speakers appearance has improved with the addition of these drivers as has the sound. These tweeters sound smooth and detailed and won't leave your ears ringing. Now my old refurbished speakers really do sound amazing. Thanks parts express!

I already own the regular version of this tweet. Is it possible to buy the truncated faceplate separately?

Asked by: RoyinVT
Unfortunately no, we only have the truncated face plates for the RS28 available at this time.

Hello,  I recently installed this tweeter as a replacement in an 8ohm 1987 B&W 3-way home stereo cabinet.  The driver seems to pass audio but also includes a perpetual white noise hiss.  Any ideas?

Asked by: samterk
The tweeter will only play what is fed into it. The hiss will be caused by the amplifier and is likely more noticeable if the tweeter is higher in sensitivity than the original.

Will these fit properly in B&W DM12 enclosures?

I don't have the diminsions of not available original TW26t
Asked by: soberpar
Its pretty unlikely that these will be a drop in fit, the original tweeter faceplate looks a bit larger that these.

why do these have a lower fs than the DC28FS-8?

out of interest ..
Asked by: fish fingers
The shielded version does not have a bumped back plate because of its bucking magnet. This raises the Fs of the driver.
