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 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
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 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great tweeter if you're lucky.The Usher 9950 series tweeters are designed very well and sound great. However, the quality control is just abysmal. We use this tweeter in a production environment. So, we see quite a few of them. Over the past few years our rejection rate has risen to about 40%. They are plagued with rubbing and buzzing voice coils. The felt dome behind the diaphragm is often loose. And recently we're discovering air leaks behind the diaphragm! In other words, when the tweeter is mounted in a sealed cabinet with a woofer, the air pressure generated by the woofer causes the tweeter dome to move in and out. You can actually hear the air fluttering through the tweeter!Don't get me wrong. I love this tweeter. When it's built well and properly functioning it sounds as if they took the best sonic qualities of the Scan Speak D2905/9500 and the D2905/9700 and combined them, only at a much better price. But I'm seriously starting to question the value of the this tweeter considering the amount of work and headaches it's costing us.
