Pyle PDBT38 Titanium Super Tweeter is rated 4.7273 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from DisappointedThis speaker was a real disappointment. First, I don't think anybody 'knows' what 4-8 ohms means. The listing was for an 8 ohm speaker which it definitely is not. I think it is between 3 and 4 ohms (I didn't measure the Re). When I installed these in my keyboard amp cabinet using the existing crossover, it left a big hole in the frequency curve from 4k to something very high. I did not use the capacitor which was 2.2 microfarad but a 4.7 microfarad which was in the old 8 ohm tweeter's crossover circuit hoping for it to crossover at somewhere near where it used to-- at about 4kHz. It sounded more like 10kHz. Also the speaker is said to be 105db efficient but with a midrange speaker with a spec of 91db I was expecting the hi's to be much more prominent. I ordered some larger capacitors and am hoping I can get these to crossover closer to 4kHz. The 8ohm tweeter that was in the keyboard amp was only 20watts, and it is not blown, so I hope I don't blow this 150watt tweeter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bang for the Buck!Excellent quality Tweeter. Performs like a MUCH more expensive item. If you want a strong INEXPENSIVE tweeter, THIS one is it... and for only $21 bucks!

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 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!

Can you tell me what is the spacing between the mounting screws?

Asked by: ArmandoD
The mounting screws are 4.2" apart measured diagonally.

Can these be crossed over at ~3000Hz without problems ?

Asked by: CyrusRamsey
Yes, I would recommend a minimum of 12 dB per octave.

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).
