Fountek Neo X 3.0 Ribbon Tweeter Black
Are polar response curves available for the ribbon tweeters Fountek makes?
Unfortunately Fountek only provides on axis response curves for this tweeter.

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.
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.
