Product Details

HiVi Q1R 1-1/8" Textile Dome Tweeter

A precisely manufactured German diaphragm is mated to a large shielded motor structure. The result is a tweeter with excellent timbre and low distortion characteristics. Transient response is improved via the use of ferrofluid and a copper-clad aluminum voice coil. Some of our customers have used this tweeter as a drop in replacement for the popular classic AR3a speaker from the 70"s. Note that they have recommended adding a .07mh 18 gauge inductor in parallel with the tweeter to more mimic the original AR3a sound.

HiVi Q1R 1-1/8" Textile Dome Tweeter is rated 4.8182 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent AR3a replacement!!I just purchased a pair of these with the .05MH 18AWG air core inductor x-over coil for my current AR3a rehab. I am very satisfied with the outcome of this project. The 3a's sound great with these. They sound so good that I am going to use them in a pair of 2ax's with the recommended mods. Highly recommended for reviving those classic AR's!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sweet and clear for AR2axnot a tech review....opens the high end with out a strident effect..have replaced mid and woof (polycone woof, rock and roll...long time ago, can really crank these things) blends with beautiful result. Excellent cross with mid.Not too top high. Some drilling to fit old speaker problems..old Yahama RX 770 can throw it out there..very happy even in an "acoustic" quiet mode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sound!The HiVi Q1R 1-1/8" Textile Dome Tweeters were purchased as a replacement for the blown tweeters of a pair of vintage AR-2Ax speakers. With the modification using the copper induction coil (see separate review) and reverse polarity connected directly to the crossovers, the AR produce the best music playback I have ever heard from vintage speakers. The three drivers operate flawlessly as a unit, producing deep clean bass, excellent mid-range and perfect highs, with no trace of brittleness. Whether listening to rock, jazz or classical the Ar's, with the HiVi modified tweeters, sound simply superior in every respect. Very highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tweeters and caps and inductorsI purchased 6 tweeters, 2 caps & 2 inductors for a pair of AR LST 2's I'm restoring. One tweeter had a cracked mounting flange which I returned for a replacement. I received the replacement in a few days, and was reimbursed for the postage.I would highly recommend PE to anyone looking for fast service, good prices, and great customer support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent smooth Tweeter for use in AR-2AX Speaker rebuildThe OEM tweeters in my 1964 AR-2AX speakers had gone bad. Rather than replace with more old parts I elected to use this tweeter recommended on Classic Speaker Pages. I also used a 0.051mH air core coil and a 3mFd polypropylene capacitor and inverted the polarity of the tweeter per instructions on Classic Speaker Pages. This combination restored the smooth, clear undistorted audio response I had always known from these speakers. The tweeters use smaller mounting holes than the original for screws, but I used some suitable wood screws with phillips heads to avoid drilling holes in these tweeters larger and running the risk of steel fragments causing future problems. The coils were mounted to the back of the tweeters with GE silicone caulk to prevent vibration.
