Product Details

Goldwood GT-525 1" Soft Dome Tweeter

Surprising performance at a low cost! The Goldwood GT-525 1" soft dome tweeter is a great drop-in replacement for the 8 ohm high frequency drivers found in many older speaker systems. The GT-525 tweeter's efficiency is increased by a semi-horn-loaded face plate, which also helps control directivity. A precisely contoured pure silk dome ensures smooth, non-fatiguing response.

Goldwood GT-525 1" Soft Dome Tweeter
Goldwood GT-525 1" Soft Dome Tweeter is rated 4.129 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goldwood? Why not?Had a pair of Yamaha's at work when one of the tweeters developed a broken wire leading to the voice coil. (Not burned, just broken). I couldn't find a replacement so after noticing that we always kept the treble turned up a notch to balance it with the bass, (the speakers are mounted by the ceiling in the corners of the room to get the best bass response without putting extra demand on the amp) I decided to try these 92 SPL tweeters. Perfect for our setup!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot handle power as advertisedThis review is going to sound very amateur. I purchased a pair of these tweeters to upgrade from my "Goldwood GT-25 4" Cone Tweeter". I wanted a richer, crisper sound. However, one thing I have learned is that these silk soft dome tweeters are much like horn tweeters and they 'crackle' when pushed. I do not use a powered sub, so I am feeding my towers with as much power as my Onkyo can give, and while the drivers can take it, the two different brands of silk dome tweeters I've tried and the three different horns could not. Interestingly enough, as far as tweeters go, the $4.00 cone tweeters offered by Goldwood hold up remarkably better, despite having a smaller magnet and being rated to handle less power.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BrokenBought two of these to replace tweeters in a pair of loudspeakers.The plastic housing which the screw go into to attach it to a speaker box had cracks in it along where it was adhered to the magnet.It didn't look to be a big problem and seemed like a minor cosmetic issue that would be hidden once installed but when I screwed them into the speaker box the plastic housing on both of them broke and made them completely unusable because they could no longer be installed. I made sure when I screwed them into the pre-drilled holes to be careful not to over-drill them and just to get them snug and not tight enough to stress the plastic but it still broke.The actual speaker portion of the product still works fine but is impossible to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for Infinity SM-82 tweeters.After reading another review; I decided on these as replacements for the high output Polycell tweeters in a pair of Infinity SM-82 speakers. These required a tiny notch to be cut at the top side of the current tweeter cutouts and 4 new holes for screws to secure. This was only necessary due to the terminals placement (one on each side of the driver). I would agree with other reviews that the terminals are flimsy. It shouldn't be a problem as long as you take your time and make connections gently. These tweeters have a much more pleasing sound than the stock polycells (known to be harsh, loud and tinny in the SM line of Infinity speakers). It also has improved the width/depth of the sound stage. It doesn't hurt that these tweeters look beautiful and seem to be built well. If you have a pair of Infinity SM-82 speakers and want to greatly improve their sound, without adjusting/ replacing the stock crossovers, I recommend these. Thanks P.E.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent on the high notesThese were a replacements for another brand of tweeters, that were old. These are kicking great sounds out and at a lower cost. I have been building speakers for 24 years as a hobby and these are great for the price.Happy customer

I want to put these in a pair of Pioneer CS-911A's to replace the super tweeter. Anyone see any issues in doing so?

Asked by: rjohns64
I dont see any issues as long as there is an appropriate crossover installed to protect the tweeter.

What is the size/kind of terminals?

Asked by: R.J. Maurer
It is my understanding they are 8AWG spade terminals (male). I always use 8's and crimped tight then add a small bead of soldier to secure mechanically and electrically.

What would be a good crossover for these tweeters?

I'll be using them with the GRS 8PR-8 (292-428) in a 2 way.

With an Fs of 1000hz and 50W power handling a 3000hz xover /12db should be safe
