Vifa OC25SC65-04 1" Textile Dome Tweeter
hi will this fit the CC6 S2 B&W centre speaker? Thanks A
Unfortunately this will not be a direct replacement for that tweeter. You would be farther ahead contacting B&W for a replacement since their drivers are all proprietary.

Does this come in an 8 ohm version? OC25SC65-08 ?
I have disassembled mission 731 (not i) to replace burned out tweeters. The tweeter mounts from the rear with a twist lock ring to the baffle. This tweeter has the exact diameter that would snap in, however the 731 is an 8 ohm speaker. Thank you.
When used in a full range speaker system with crossover the tweeer impedance at4 or 8 ohms would make very little difference.ale sure to replace both boxes tweeters so the load ( even though minimal difference) would be the same.

Help w/ Crossover, car audio
I bought a pair of these to use as door tweeters in a pickup. I built a crossover with the intention of using these as components (with 5" woofer, PE part #299-414), but am less than satisfied with the sound; it is very "one dimensional" and lacks the sparkle and brilliance of good components, especially missing detail in the high end. Almost like listening to an alarm clock radio (exaggeration, but you get the point).I chose 4100 as the crossover point for both. Tweeter is a 2nd order w/ 6.8uF cap & 0.22mH inductor. The 5" speakers are first order with a 0.13mH inductor. I wired the tweeter reverse polarity because of 2nd order, but the woofer straight. Looking for any suggestions on how to better my results and add much needed life to the sound.
Your crossover point is way too high. The tweeters you bought need 900hz. Your subs are handling the midrange and low highs. Not good design for a 2 way system

Active crossover tweeter protection
I just want to protect this tweeter from any mistakes using a jbl ms-8 as the the actual crossover. Can you recommend a capacitor or other procedure to accomplish this?
The only proper way to protect a driver is to have it operate with a safe crossover frequency. In this case that will need to be at or higher than 4,000 Hz assuming a second order filter. If you decide to use only a cap it will need to be twice as high, so a 2.5 uF cap is recommended.

Linaeum Pro LX-550 Tweeter Replacement ?
Linaeum tweeters are not available. They are 360° radiating ribbon tweeters 6 ohm crossed with a 5.6 uf in a 75w rms box. I am considering these since two of these back to back, will fit on top where the linaeum ET-19 that burned out was and give the best substitute for dispersion and response. Since this will be two 4 ohm in series = 8 ohm, would like crossover and phasing suggestions. Woofer is a 6 ohm with a .9mh coil in series.Does it even look like a good idea ?BTW the linaeum tweeter is great, their dispersion makes hours of high volume painless highs but miss a tiny bit of timbre. Too bad they are out of biz.
I see no reason this won't work although it will be a different sound than you are used to.

Would a 22uf capacitor be great to use on this tweeter? I have a JBL 6 speaker car audio.
Using a 22uF capacitor is going to provide just under a 2000Hz crossover point for this tweeter. Following the Fs x 2.5 rule, you'd want a crossover frequency closer to 3800Hz to be safe,and a 10uF capacitor is going to do that. I've referenced one of our more popular such capacitors below for your convenience.
