Goldwood GT-1016 2" x 5" Wide Dispersion Piezo Horn Tweeter
Goldwood GT-1016 2" x 5" Wide Dispersion Piezo Horn Tweeter is rated 3.95 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked goodI used a pair of these to replace some blown piezo's in Yorkville monitors. The original piezo's (from Brazil) were getting very difficult to locate. I had to enlarge the hole by about 1/8" overall. The finished project was very satisfactory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great when used correctlyfairly efficient approx. 95 db not very good in single unit application..but remarkable when used as a line source wired series/parallel must use a series resister of about 10 ohm 10 watt as not to stress the amp. but stellar performance in line source application

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for the moneyHaving read the reviews and used the tweeter before I bought 8 of them for use as an animal repeller, which demands a clean response from 18KHZ to about 25KHZ. As expected, 6 of them sounded clean using a 18KHZ to 22KHZ square-wave sweep generator with an amplifier that put about 25 volts p-p across the tweeter (close to the 50 watt RMS limit), with a 10 ohm 10 watt damper resistor in series to protect the amplifier from the heavy capacitive loading of piezo-type tweeters, and a 1uf 100 volt capacitor with a 100 ohm 5 watt resistor after the cap, but before the 10 ohm going to the tweeter. This protects the tweeter from turn-on "thumps" that some amps have. One out of the 8 sounded shrill and weak, one more had a weak output period. I recommend buying 25% more than what you need to be sure you have enough good one's with full output.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from QC is a big issue with these...I recently built crossfire tweeter arrays (12 tweeters each) out of these. I had about 40 on hand, gathered over a year. I measured capacitance on each driver and found a wide range of values. (.06 uF to .350uf) I had about 5 dead ones, about 6 with relatively high cap values that were shrill and unlistenable. Most fell into the .120-.160 range and I used those for my arrays, and as single tweeters for stage monitors (with a Beta 8).Found them entirely acceptable for both PA mains & monitors. They do need a series resistor or passive Lpad to control response and pad down. They are happiest at 3.5Khz +, but can be pushed lower with a "real" crossover. While they are not consistent, but still have to be some of the best ultra cheap tweeters around. (Maybe not for audiophiles!)If you are mounting them inside a box, you need to seal the joint between the whizzer and horn casting. It is not air tight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad From StockBought two of these tweeters. Both arrived bad from stock. The cost of return shipping would be more expensive than the price of the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cerwin Vega replacement.Replaced the original Cerwin Vega SAT6 tweeters with these. Had to use a 10 ohm resistor in parallel across the speaker terminals and then a high pass capacitor at 3.5k to take the harshness out. Very happy with the results, almost 5 years now.

Is the Back Removable?

Does the back separate from the horn housing? I would like to paint the horn housings, but will not do this if I can't separate the horn from the electronics.
Asked by: El Roy
yes :-) just 3 screws and it all comes apart. they are very simple.

Impedance of piezo tweeters, and crossover cap values

I have some experience with these; most economy piezos are created equal [all have them same 3/4" wafer inside].Cant beat 'em for the money fer sure, they generally dont require crossovers and are bullet-proof. But now, I am replacing them in 2-way FR boxes and wish to "unload" them a little with thier targeted frequency range [2-20Khz], to make them brighter [is there any point to this?].They measure open [ohm-meter] but I have seen a spec on similar ones putting them at 75 ohms. The originals had 47uf NPE which are off the 8-ohm 1st order [6db] filter chart [2-ohm/1800hz uses 44uf, but these aint 2-ohm], so have no idea where they are crossing over without measuing equipment. What cap value do you recommend and would you use a 20-ohm resistor in series or parallel for loading/amp protection [200W/ch]?note: I wish to use these or the higher-pwr Pyle version below...
Asked by: Fanden
Piezo drivers have a different impedance at different frequencies, not a set or nominal impedance. The lower the frequencies, the higher the impedance. This is why no cross-over is used and you cannot use normal formulas to calculate. This is why it measures infinite resistance with a ohm meter, because you are applying zero hertz with the battery in the meter.
