Pyle PDBT18 Bullet Horn Tweeter Pair is rated 4.625 out of 5 by 16.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Price to Performance Ratio!I used these in a variation of the Podzuma. Great performance for the price range (~$10 per driver). Crisp highs with out being to harsh. High efficiency and good response with a HP @ 5KHz. Build quality is decent, not great but to be expected for the price point. For the price, they are hard to beat. Will use them again on similar application or were budget is tight. Also like stated in several other reviews, don't use the included mounting template as it is not to scale. Overall great value.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Way too harsh sounding, one was defectiveFor the materials used to make these tweeters I would say there worth the money but for the way they sound I would not suggest buying these. They were very harsh sounding and one of them made a "crackling" noise at all listening levels. I used the capacitor that came with it maybe I should have used a different one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound with high volumeI have bought several pairs of these and they sound great in the PA systems I have made, and have used them to replace cheap piezos in speaker systems. They are crisp, clean and have high level output,,more than happy. I used them in a pair of home speakers and one in each cab blew the socks off the twin 8 inch with twin mid/woofers. Had to take them out and replace with a lower output tweet. I have been ordering from PE for some time,,great prices, stuff I want is usually in stock or have a short delay. Some stuff is very low price (but you get what you pay for) and the overall quality is great. I have built several pro audio speakers and all have turned out great with exceptional sound. My current project is a pair of PA cabs for accoustic music with a 10 inch sub, 8 5 1/4 inch pyle mid/woofers, and a pair of these tweets per cab. I'll let everyone know how they sound :-)

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.

Asked by: MKCT
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.

crossover cicuitry

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.
Asked by: Mr. Cross
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?
Asked by: Doyne5
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.

Fs ???

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 ?
Asked by: Droidipihle
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!
Asked by: DJMarshy
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.
