PA tweets are so ******, i stepped on mine, and after i realized i couldn't eliminate them from planet earth by stomping on them, i ran them over with my grandpa's 1979 dodge pickup.

True story..................

you never talk to me anymore. I hate you :crying:they are NEO, and you know I love the NEO!!!!!

they are ugly as ****, so the installation would be a challenge, and I love a challenge.

The only thing I wounder about is the dispersion of the PA, the Sel, is only 50% I would hope the PA is a little more than that.

Either way you will be chasing away dogs for miles:laugh:

Funny that you should mention these tweeters. I happen to own both of them and was going to do my own comparison in a few days. I first have to dig out my soldering iron and solder the capacitors that came with the PA's. On my day off I can get a chance to listen to them.

also the other with a 40X 40 dispersion sounds nice, they have a decently curved roll of if I remember correctly.

Just going by looks, the selenium looks better built. I love the selenium terminals compared to the PA's. The PA terminals are screw type teminals and the seleniums are push down. The PA's capacitors that provide a fliter are a little bulky. The worst thing about the selenium is that it is pretty big in itself.
I had a chance to listen to the seleniums and they sounded good.
I will have more of a complete answer when I listen to both.

to be honest, you're not gonna notice much difference in sound, IMO.

since you already have yours, id keep those.

i went with the PA's becuase the look, and they're smaller, and its the style tweet i wanted. i didnt want square bullet tweets.

be jealous bish

the size/weight is what's making me uneasy about running so many in each door compared to the PAs.

i don't figure it worth the hassle either but i've really run into space problems in the doors for these and since i'm not under any time restraint, i'm in no rush.. :crap: lol

Let me clarify that for you a little :rolleyes:

They're both an equally poor choice, so if you already have the Selenium just use those.
