from Buy the Goldwood Silk domes insteadI bought these tweeters 7 years ago for a MTM tower build. I have never been terribly impressed with them. The definition is pretty good, but the imaging has always been pretty terrible. I finally replaced them with the Goldwood silk dome tweeters, and after approximately 5 seconds of listening I'm quite happy with the replacements. The Goldwood silk domes are a drop-in replacement for these, as they have the same cutout, magnet and terminals. Save yourself the trouble and spend a couple bucks more on the silk domes.

from Not Goldwood's BestWas going to use these till I heard them. Bought them to replace some dead tweeters in a well built pair of thrift store speakers. Free-air, these had a resonant sound I blamed on the plastic face plate. I figured they would mellow out once mounted, instead the resonance changed but didn't go away. These have a HUGE 16 db FS peak centered @ 1,850 hz with a width from 1,400 to 3,000 hz. This peak makes shallow 6 db slope cross-overs out of the question. The peak was audible even with a 12 db octave slope @ 5 khz. It took a notch filter and 12 db per octave @ 7.5 khz to get these to sound right. Sounded even better @ 9 khz. Unfortunately the higher cross over made these unusable for my intended application. Also the extra parts needed for the notch filter and steeper cross over make these budget tweeters less than cost effective. If you want a Goldwood tweeter, the GT-322 (270-150) and the GT-338 (270-165) both have FS peaks but are much easier to work with. If you need to have the round face plate, the Dayton Audio DC25T-8 (275-045) is a much better choice. Also don't use taper head screws, they will crack the plastic face plate.

from Excellent budget tweeter but watch out!Used these tweeters for a reload of some cheapo Realistic speakers I bought for $5 at a garage sale. Paired with a single Dayton DC130BS-4 in a .19 cu ft ported box, f3 around 70hz. 2nd order x-over at 1.2k on the woofer, 3rd order at 3.5kz for the tweeter. If you cross this tweeter high enough and steep enough it will perform admirably for something in this price range. That being said, the plastic faceplate is CHEAP, and as others have noted the terminals are very fragile. I used a putty scraper to support the terminals when I snapped the disconnects into place. The biggest fault I see in this tweeter is it is NOT a sealed back unit. There is a large air gap which runs all around the diaphragm causing a massive air leak and made my DC130's sound horrible. I knew something was wrong right away. One of them even made a squeaking type sound at high volume due to the air escaping with every kick of the woofer. I removed both tweeters and their faceplates, and used my trusty 260-540 PE gasket tape to seal up around the 4 faceplace mounting holes. After reassembly I listened to them again, and it not only solved my woofer problem but it also cleaned up the tweeters clarity. I don't know if this voids my warranty but it is necessary unless you want to build a separate box for the tweeter!

from Not Bad...At this price, you shouldn't expect audiophilequality, but if you're looking for an inexpensivetweeter, this gets the job done. I found it canbe crossed over at about 1 kHz and gives areasonable upper end response in a two-way setup.The construction reflects the price, and becareful with the terminals, which break easily.

from Bad ChoiceI like titanium dome tweeters, but unfortunately there are not many to choose from. I had good luck with a prior Goldwood product, so I thought I'd try their titanium dome tweeter. It installed easily, and I used a 6 dB slope 5,000 Hz crossover. It played terribly and made some awful sounds that were not even in the music, as mentioned by other reviewers. Piano sounds were especially bad. Thinking that the crossover frequency might have been too low, I raised it to 10,000 Hz. It helped it a little bit, but the piano still sounded bad. But now that I'm thinking about it, I think it improved slightly because at my new crossover frequency there just isn't very much music playing way up there. Anyway I replaced it with the Dayton DC25T-8 using the original 6 dB 5,000 Hz crossover and I am pleased with the results (see my review of the Dayton unit).
