Pyle PDBT38 Titanium Super Tweeter
Pyle PDBT38 Titanium Super Tweeter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best tweeters installed!!!Recently I installed two of these super tweeters in my speakers Paradigm 90P and those who had were burned. Actually I never thought the sound was gonna be much better than it did. These tweeters are spectacular. They are EXTREMELY powerful, well built and are very cute. The sound is clear much better than expected and above all the price is the most surprising. I recommend them to anyone who wants to make an upgrade to your speakers. Thanks Parts Express!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super tweeterthis is the bomb. altho you must be careful when installing it as the hole is almost as big as the mounting ears. as for sound and power, this is worth the $$$.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced a Roland KC-550 HornAfter doing some testing and blowing multiple stock tweeters on my Roland KC-550 keyboard amplifier, determined there was an engineering flaw built into the amp that blows the tweeters. Decided to up the power handling slightly and this fit the specs. Honestly I didn't expect much from this tweeter at the price...it was less than another stock replacement. I push my this tweeter hard and run a nord electro 4 through it while playing in a 5 piece funk/jam/rock band. Blew a total of 3 stock Roland horns in 3 years. This one has been going strong already for 3 years. I recommend one to anyone I see with a Roland KC-550 before they blow their tweeter!

Pyle PDBT38 Titanium Super Tweeter

Could I use 4-6 PDBT38 in an array

together with 4 PPA12" and cross them over at 2000 Hz ? What XO frequency would be approriate ? And how many PDBT38 would balance well with the subwoofers ?
Asked by: Blaukopf
When building array be sure to stack vertically and as close to each other as possible. Like touching the frames together. As far as how many, they are 106db efficient. One would most likely work and then you may need a L pad to match to the sub. Remember a 10db increase in volume is perceived by the human ear as being Twice as loud. Now the sensitivity of PPA12 is SPL: 90.0 dB 1W/1m which means the tweeter is Twice and a half louder than those twelves. Adding more PPA 12 do not make them more efficient, it just lets them work easier and that makes them more accurate and of course can handle more power. Arrays give more ambiance and power handling. If your going to build an array why not use (270-125) they are 104 db and less than half the price.The chart below will guide you to what capacitor to use depending on the load you end up with. Be sure to series and parallel the tweeter wiring to end up with the ohms you are wanting.Hope this helpsCapacitor Value2 ohms 4 ohms 8 ohms 16 ohms1.0uF 80,000Hz*40,000Hz*20,000Hz* 10,000Hz2.2uF 36,000Hz* 18,000Hz*9,000Hz 4,500Hz3.3uF 24,000Hz* 12,000Hz 6,000Hz 3,000Hz4.7uF 16,800Hz* 8,400Hz 4,200Hz 2,100Hz6.8uF 11,600Hz 5,800Hz 2,900Hz 1,450Hz10uF 8,000Hz 4,000Hz 2,000Hz 1,000HzFrequencies marked with a (*) are effectively beyond the range of normal human hearing

could I wire this into an L-Pad and then into a 3-way crossover without modify it?

Asked by: MrBluesBassman
Absolutely: wire the crossover tweeter output to the L-pad, L-pad output to tweeter. The crossover "sees" a constant impedance so crossover frequency is unchanged and you adjust the L-pad to the desired output level (to balance with the other drivers or to your taste).
