Dayton Audio ND16FA-6 5/8" Neodymium Dome Tweeter
Could i use this with the Dayton DC250-8 10 only or would i also need a midrange. Also a suggestions on a reasonable priced crossover Thanks
A midrange would be needed, yes. The upper useable frequency range of the DC250 is 2500 Hz, the tweeter's useable range is 3500 Hz and above. An appropriate 3-way crossover could be PE item# 260-210. Most 3" or 4" speakers will have useable frequency response extending above and below the 800 and 5000 Hz crossover frequencies of this crossover.

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.

Is there a version of this tweet with higher power handling?
There are a lot of tweeters out there; lots of them with high power handeling. What you need to do is decide how you are going to use a tweet (what kind of music, volume and sound quality desired, where you intend to use it, other components - woofs, mids, xovers- etc) then try to match things up with the available offerings.This tweet will hit 98db with 2 watts headroom-properly crossed over- and that's pretty good for a small system. Used in multiples it will get seriously loud.Tell us more about your needs, expectations and budget and we'll try to give you more help.

Im planning to pair this tweeter with the ND91-8 fullrange woofer to get som better treble. How can I easiest find a suitable crossover software to get the scheme and components? I hope i don't need get some measurement software and hardware.
You will definately need a crossover, but no measurement software unless you intend to build your own.A good 2-way at around 3500hz will do just fine. One other thing you will need will be a way to balance the output of the tweet and the woof. An l-pad will allow you to get it just right. The tweet is a lot hotter.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.

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.
