Product Details

Fountek Neo X 3.0 Ribbon Tweeter Black

Fountek’s reputation as an innovator in ribbon transducer technology continues with the Neo X series of ribbon tweeters. The Neo X 3.0 is built using third-generation Fountek ribbon driver technology, a strong neodymium motor structure, and built-in transformer to contribute to the responsiveness of this tweeter. A 12 mm wide by 80 mm high, sandwiched-aluminum ribbon diaphragm increases sensitivity and power handling, while limiting vertical dispersion for sharper imaging and reduced floor and ceiling reflections.

All of this combines to make the Neo X 3.0 an incredible, true ribbon tweeter with a super-wide (and flat) frequency response that extends from 1,200 Hz out to 40,000 Hz, while the wide horizontal off-axis dispersion makes for a larger listening sweet spot. The benign impedance makes the Neo X 3.0 a safe speaker to use with temperamental tube amplifiers. Recommended minimum crossover frequency: 2,000 Hz @ 12 dB/octave.

Fountek Neo X 3.0 Ribbon Tweeter Black

Do I need to put a cap on a NeoX3.0 in an actively amped speaker?

I just bought a pair of these, and plan to use them in with an active24db/octave crossover at 2000Hz, giving them their own LFD amp.Do I need to further protect them (from turn-on thumps, for instance)with a cap? If so, what value would you recommend? I'd prefer to have the amp direct coupled, but don't want to blow the tweeters.
Asked by: Boho
Yes, you absolutely need a cap to protect it.Try something big that won't effect your crossover.This is the challenge, the driver is very revealing so you don't want to put a cheap bi-polar electrolytic in there yet it needs to be a large value of at least 20uF or more. The precise value isn't that important. A good cap of that size will be expensive.Good luck.
