Goldwood GT-510 1" Soft Dome Tweeter
Goldwood GT-510 1" Soft Dome Tweeter is rated 4.68 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice tweeterThese are well made and sound great. I used them to replace fried dome tweeters on some old two-way base reflex speakers on my pool deck, and the sound is really amazing considering the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect tweeterI have been working on a set of monitor style speakers using the buyout 6.5 woofer and these tweeters matched up perfectly. I am using a .5 ft3 sealed box made of mdf and I had to make my own crossovers because of the different impedance. Crossed at 4k with air core inductors and dayton metallized poly caps all from PE. They sound great even in my garage and short of power.(running off of a car reciever I have hooks into my work bench) I cant wait to get my custom stands finished for them repaint and get them into the house. Thanks parts express for the quick shipping good parts and good service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pleased; Good Quality and Sound for the PriceI have some Allison Acoustics AL-100 bookshelf speakers that I had previouslyre-woofered using the 6.5" poly buyout woofers. They have a mylar tweeter (not thegood inverted domes). I am making some clones of them for a friend/clients store.I wanted to try these and see if they were an improvement over the mylars. I crossedthem over @ the same 5kHz and 6db slope. I immediately noticed more detail andclarity. However they were a little too sensitive. I added a 3.3 Ohm resistor. That made them too tame. I then tried a 2.2 Ohm resistor. That sounded perfect. So it looks likemy friend will get dome tweeters and I will definitely remember these when building"most bang for the buck" speakers. There are better tweeters out there, but you willhave to look hard to find better at this price. I would have given 4.5 stars if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft Dome TweetersBought these to replace tweeters in '76 vintage Pioneer CS-511A speakers. These are replacements for replacements. Soft domes are in my opinion very smooth and especially nice at the upper limits where they tend to taper off nicely rather than abruptly. Their shape is nearly identical to those of microphones and probably a leading reason they reproduce high frequency with a natural uncolored quality. In the past I've tried horns, bullet, cone-type, and piezo tweeters. None ever came close to the sweetness of soft domes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tweeter upgrades on ADC 18'sUpgraded tweeters installed on ADC 18's. After a tedious crossover redesign and restoration on these 44 year old massive floor standing loudspeakers, these tweeters are wired 2 in parallel with an Re approx t 3.8 ohms in each cabinet. Very open with wide dispersion and power handling. For the price, PE has a bargain here worth capturing. Impressive dome tweeters with the proper crossover slope, notch filter and impediance compensation in the redesign goal. Smooth and very spacially open!

Could this tweeters work with my studio monitors?

Hi Parts expressI have a studio monitors (m audio studiophile sp 5b) and the tweeters are damaged, I need a replacement, in the monitor's manual appear this specs for the tweeters :HF Driver: 1" magnetically-shield natural Silk Dome, 33wCould you tell me if this speakers are OK/similar for this replace? if no could you suggest ones of your store?I will apreciate, thanks.Regards
Asked by: daenmo
As long as the impedance matches and you can get it to fit there is no reason it wont work although it will sound different from the original. Replacing both would be recommended.

Is this tweeter a fit (mechanical and roughly electronic) for the Event 20/20?

Asked by: xaplexus
No. The tweeter in the event 20-20's is the same size as the Peerless 811852 (see Parts express number 279-179 discontinued)If you want to use the Goldwood you will need to enlarge the mounting hole from 2.5 inches to 2.875 inches for the Goldwood to fit. The Goldwood is 1dB more efficient than the Peerless so if you want to match the efficiency you will need to pad the Goldwood tweeter by 1dB. A 1 ohm (seriies) and a 20 ohm (parallel) will give the approximate 1dB attenuation. You will also need to drill new holes for the screws to mount. Sadly the original tweeter for the Events are available through Event. A DT-10 Peerless is the one that has the indentical faceplate of the event. You Can buy the 279-051 tweeter and rob the butterfly /voice coil /dome out of it and it will fit the magnet of the Event tweeter but the Caveat is you will need to be careful pulling the faceplate off (plastic breakable tabs) and the soldering is very fragile. you should use aircraft push terminals with fragile terminal tweeters. Good luck!

So is the part # in the catalog incorrect, or are the specs in the catalog incorrect?

I understand what shielded drivers are and about stray magnetic fields. I do not really care about the magnetic shielding properties. I am concerned with the ragged impedence and response curve of the GT-510/S as compared to the smooth response and lower Fs of the GT-510 versus the GT-510/S. I was hoping PE could simply provide the info in this Q/A forum regarding which product they are actually selling. I'll be happy to phone tomorrow, if for some reason the information cannot be provided here.Thanks,Dick
Asked by: Dick
I apologize, it would seem that there was a typographical error in our copy. We no longer carry the GT-510/S, the GT-510 is the one we have in stock.
