Product Details

Usher 9950-20 1-1/8" Textile Dome Tweeter

The 9950-20 uses a specially coated dome that offers flat frequency response and a very open and detailed sound quality. A tuned rear chamber and a lightweight ferrofluid in the gap provide a well-damped, low resonance point, making for easy crossover design. The 9950's take the technology of the 9930's one step further to include a copper shorting ring on the tweeter pole. This ring dramatically reduces the distortion levels, and also helps provide greater high frequency extension. The 9950 is an extremely well made unit that contains all of the features found on the highest-quality tweeters, but at a fraction of the price.

Usher 9950-20 1-1/8" Textile Dome Tweeter
Usher 9950-20 1-1/8" Textile Dome Tweeter is rated 4.8182 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tweeter for any project.I used these in a MTMW design and they integrated very nicely with the mids. They have a little bump around 12k-16k which sometimes is nice but ultimately I settled on cutting that bump in half with an EQ and was then extremely pleased with the sound. It was very relaxed, and detailed.My X/O point was about 3.5kHz and was a little disappointed that the tweeter was the first driver to distort, but that was at a very impressive volume in a 25' x 25' room with 10' ceilings.I must admit I pushed these extremely hard during testing and they never failed.The only negative is that I kept hearing some undertones when playing a sign wave above - 5kHz. I heard it on the one I tested with and a brand new one. It didn't show up very significantly when I tested for harmonic distortion, but was audible, not enough to bring this down from 5 stars, though.Definitely using these again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A well behaved tweeterFlat response, though tilted up a few db towards 20KHz. Doesn't have the characteristic 'notch' in the top octave that the Usher metal domes based on this design have (inc. Dayton RS28A).2nd order harmonic distortion is a little higher than some competitors, but 3rd order and higher are respectably low.Value varies - when this is on sale it's a good deal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing but naturalHaving tried titanium a few times and being reminded every metalic 's' vocal sound that it was titanium, I had to try a cloth dome. I returned a few tweeters before I found these and I am so glad I did. No breakup, very natural crystal resolution. I am a musician running a recording studio and I use these for my final mix. You will not find a better tweeter sound, only more power handling if you need that. Great deal for twice the price - Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have not heard a lot, but this is clearly the best I have heard.This usher tweeter sounds so beautiful.Very detailed but smooth.Best I have heard so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tweeterI have this in a 3 way setup xo'd at 5000hz and it sounds incredible. Very detailed sound and excellent imaging. My only complaint is that they are not sealed. I had to make a small enclosure for them, but not big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp SoundI purchased these tweeters now over 3 years ago. I am using 7 of them in my 7.2 system for music and theatre as of today still. I designed my X-O's for best performance with music of all kinds, Jazz mostly though due to the broad spectrum of tones. Words are hard to explain these tweeters, but all I can say is they are very crisp, clean, and no harshness. I do have to say one thing, it is important to design your X-O's detailed for these to perform at their peek. These tweeters I'd say are not your run of the mill tweeters to just install into a set of speakers to act as a replacment, take the time to design the X-O's to the specs of the tweeters and these will blow you away.
