besides dome and horn tweeters, i dont understand any of the other tweeters and how they could possible work to produce sound...

dont quote me on this but i believe on those the membrane replaces the dome on a conventional tweeter.
in the back there is a pattern of "conductors" that act like a voice coil with a pattern of neo magnets that work with those conductors to move the membrane.
from there it is basically works like a normal tweeter.

but again i am just taking a shot in the dark and could be completely wrong.

yeah, those speakers work with electrostatics pretty much charging up a membrane and then attracting it and unattracting really fast in order to produce the sound. A lot of people like them cause you don't get the weird impedance curves cause you don't have a voice coil moving in and out of an electric field.
