You looking for full comp set, or ONLY tweeters? How are you setting these up? Active or on a passive?

well depends. im still debating on which is better full comp set or build my own. money is just a barrier..if i really want to do something ill take the time and save and do it right. but for this post. im going 2-way setup, tweet and midbass, active setup, 4 channel amp. plus sub & amp which i already have. but i love listening to acoustics and i love clarity when i listen to my music. that's why im trying to find out what's a good set of tweets out there to satisfy my craving!

Look into the Dayton RS tweeters, Max Fidelity Neo30, Seas tweeters, LPG 25/26nfa.....aswell as the offerings from Morel, Vifa, Peerless, Scanspeak, Usher, etc etc.
Have fun and good luck :up2somet: :D And just remember that price does not dictate performance.

yea i know taht from what i have read so far and heard...when looking at tweets what are the important specs to observe? so i know exactly what justifies a qulaity tweet?

Well, if you know how low you'll want the tweeter to play, FS is a something. General rule of thumb is to cross a tweeter at no lower than twice it's FS. You want to make sure the general efficiencies between the tweeter and mid are close, otherwise you're going to end up padding one or the other down a lot. Check frequency response plots for on- or off-axis performance if you know where they will be located. Waterfall plots if you can find them. That kinda stuff.... :) It'd take a chapter of a book to get into all the nitty-gritty details..but that should get you started.
