I currently have a set of CDT HD-62CF's, that came with the HD-100 tweeter. I will be running active utilizing the crossovers on my 80PRS, running to a DC 175.4 for amplification.

I have heard the woofers are good so I will be using those, but the HD-100's aren't so great. I am looking for either opinions on the HD-100's, or a recommendation for a good tweeter to use. Budget is about $100 for a pair, though less is always better. I prefer a softer tweeter, not that bright.

I like the look of ribbon tweeters, though never heard them and from what I understand they are fairly unforgiving in terms of power delivered to them (both above and below rated) and crossover points and slopes. Could someone school me on those?

personally I'd listen to the tweeters you have to make sure that YOU don't like the sound of them. Otherwise hit up diyma as they have a ton of reviews on most of the popular tweeters out...

Yeah good call. Got ahead of myself after seeing a couple bad reviews. Guess I'm just looking for anyone with experience with them, and also education on ribbon tweeters.

The CDT's? That's what I'm going to do. I wouldn't want to just do planar tweets though without any information. So far what I've read in a nutshell is that they aren't great under wattage and are really sensitive to over-powering, and are very picky on both crossover point and slope type. They aren't exactly cheap to just burn by learning.

Ribbons are very picky

Seas Neos. Damnn near impossible to beat for the money for a compact tweeter.

Very versatile too

The HD-100s are very similar to the TW-25s, which I've used extensively. I upgrade from TW-25s to DRT-26, the silk version. That was a really nice upgrade, although I have since switched to the aluminum domes.
