Pyle PDBT18 Bullet Horn Tweeter Pair
What are the dimensions of this item? Ideally the distance from hole to hole. Looking to use as a drop-in replacement.
These measure 3-3/4" in diameter and require a 2-3/4" cutout with notches for the terminals. The screws are spaced 2-13/16" apart.

In the description it says a crossover cap is included. Does this mean the whole crossover frequency circuit (i.e. including appropriate resistors) or the capacitor itself. The first case leads to the question whether the circuit (or components) is/are integrated and already installed or if it needs be soldered.
This comes with a capacitor already installed. A capacitor in series is considered a 6 decibel per octave high pass crossover without any other components. This is the simplest form of crossover there is.

Remove Pyle Decal
Any suggestions as to removing the Pyle Pro decal without harming the finish?
The question is; " Is it silk screen or a decal?"My guess, at this low price it is most likely a decal or adhesive backed graphic. There are various solvents that dissolve adhesives. If is ink or paint, then a paint solvent may be your answer.Use care to keep any material liquid from dripping into the inside, it may damage the voice coil. The frame is aluminum so you could try abrasion and go for a brushed finish.Many years ago, Pyle was a cheap product name. Today amount those aware, it is a quality brand within application. True, it's not JBL but it has earned industry respect over the years so perhaps keep the logo and be proud you got great sound at low cost.

Very minimal specs are stated in the ad copy and the Pyle Pro website offers none at all. Can someone post more comprehensive specs please ?
The Pyle Pro horn tweeter pair are bullet tweeters. The fs spec is not provided because there isn't an fs applicable to bullet horn tweeters.To understand this, let's review exactly what fs is.fs is the resonant frequency of a speaker in free air and not inside of an enclosure. At resonance, the speaker's impedance increases dramatically. The speaker's impedance may go from 8 ohms to more than 30 ohms at resonance.Typically a bullet tweeter performs as if it is in an enclosure and any relative fs would be a very high frequency.Good Luck

What impedance are these? (Please read the whole question)
I picked up a couple of these at a local shop recently, but on the box it says they're 4 ohm-8 ohm. Does this mean I can run them in either a 4 ohm or 8 ohm system? I'm planning on pairing them with a Goldwood GW-10PC-8 and crossing them over at 3.5kHz. The woofer is obviously 8 ohm, so I'd like to run the tweeters at the same impedance. Is there a specific way to do this?For the record, this is my first speaker build/rebuild and if it goes well I'm planning on building a whole system from scratch soon :) Thanks!
When a speaker gives you a rating like that, it usually means it is a 4 ohm speaker but will work with either. The DCR of this tweeter is actually 3.5 ohms, which means it is optimally a 4 ohm tweeter.
