Looks pretty nice for a 30mm neodymium tweeter. And pretty cheap too at about $70 each. Check out the specs. Frequency response even off axis is pretty nice. And impedance rise to about 4.5ohms from 4ohms is nice and low. Let me know your input.

It would be cool to see some distortion specs, but otherwise it looks ok. Sort of fades off to 10k at 60* off-axis...which compact domes do to some degree. But at least it doesn't drop like a rock or have any ragged response.

You know how it goes; buy it 'n try it.

Hard for people to make judgment on stuff they have never listened to, but wait this is ca.com so Ill make a uneducated guess and say buy them to try something different from the norm.

If you look close at the response chart, the 3db down point at 60 off axis is around 5 khz. If you want to mount these off axis, I would go a different route, on-axis seems fine, but they do seem very directional.

So are these tweeters (http://tymphany.com/files/products/pdf/D2904_600000.pdf)which are used by a lot of people {not to mention Alpine and Phass for car audio} and are very well regarded. That's not to say you're wrong, but when you get a tweeter in a car next bouncing sound all over, things change.
