Dayton Audio ND16FA-6 5/8" Neodymium Dome Tweeter
How does this mount
I guess i am used to flanged drivers. How does this mount?
This product is designed to mount by simply pressing it into the correct sized (1-1/4") cutout. It's a snug fit, and the pressure should be plenty to keep it in place. Glue or sealant can be used, but is generally not required.

Can these tweeters be used without a crossover?
If these tweeters need a crossover or high pass filter, what are some recommendations? Thanks!
No, no, a thousand times no. Nay, nein. You get the picture. I would use, at minimum, a 12 db/octave crossover that rolls into the tweeter @ 3000 hz. Fs is around 2300 hz, I believe, so 3K would be as low as I would go with this. It's a really nice tweeter, but it requires some care in its' use.

How to I add a bass blocker to these?
I want to replace my car's tweeters with these. How do I block the bass? The factory tweeter have a cap on them, but cannot be removed. What cap do I use and how do I wire it?
I would try to keep it above 4k to keep it clean. Use a 027-336 np electrolytic cap on the positive lead. This will give a 6db/octave roll off @ 4000hz. It's not ideal, but should work fine. Hope this helps.

I am concerned about apparent inaccuracies listed of this tweeters dimensions. The dimensions given in the "specifications sheet" shows the outside diameter to be merely 32.5mm or 1.2795" that is 9mm deep but, a close examination of the photograph provided by PE indicates a narrow lip extending beyond the 32.5mm outside dimension. What are the measurements of this obvious lip?
My caliper is reading 32.5mm for the outside diameter.

Does it fit Dayton Audio B652 ?
I'm looking to change my Dayton Audio B652 tweeters. Do they fit them? Does changing to this tweeter have significant difference?Thanks!
Well, they're both 5/8" and LOOK very similar, but as I have never had either in my hands I can't give you a definitive answer. The question is why would you want to? Thr B652 goes up to 20K while this goes to 27K. Hearing snobs aside, there is very little musical information above 20k and if you're over 25 you can't discern it anyway.What I would suggest is you get a couple and CAREFULLY try them. If they aren't as easy to switch as they look, keep them and build something a little more upscale performance-wise.As to whether or not the change will result in a significant difference, only your eaes can answer that. The extra 7K range is mostly useless even if you could hear that well. You might appreciate the difference a soft dome makes. It's an inexpensive change, so give it a try and let us know.Hope this helps.

Linaeum Pro-LX550 Tweeter Replacement ?
I blew a Linaeum tweeter in a Pro LX-550. The specs look close enough to what I remember from a few years ago, I think they were 3000-25K, 6 ohm, box is 75 watts, x'd over, this should be ok but no 360° dispersion. Fit is a problem, 50mm diameter is pushing it. Any better one ? I search, I find no recommendations. I can listen to the linaeums for hours without getting my ears pierced, too bad they went out of biz.
The Radio Schumck version was reputed to be mylar while RCA version wos supposed tp be silk dome. Specs are close, they're priced reasonably enough, give it a try. It's not much risk even if PE wasn't as customer friendly. Too bad, a boxed set just went as new for about 120 on ebay or one of those.
