RS-Audio Pro Tweeters are definitely the best I've ever heard.

Aura Tweets are very very nice. Rainbow Soundline tweets work very nice too. The only other tweeters I've listened to are the nobium PA ones, which some people call harsh.

The tweets in the Alpine Type X have a crisp, but warm sound to them too.

I find the Kicker R-19 tweets to be very good. I've only ran about 3 different pairs but the kickers are the best I've had.

hey squeak are you running ID horns? what model? ID only makes two models of horns right? one that is like 600 and the one youre referring to right? what can one expect when paying for the 6 hundred dollar horns compared to the lesser ones? im very interested in horns but barely know anything about them.. do they go UNDER the dash where they cant even be seen??

No


what model?

Illusion Audio CH1


ID only makes two models of horns right?

No. They make 3. The CD-1e (~$300), the CD-1Pro (~$450), and the CD-2's (~$899)


one that is like 600 and the one youre referring to right?

My horns are comparable to the CD-2's, both of which retail in the $899 range. Also, you can change out the compression drivers. For example, you can get the CD-2's with a Neo magnet, or you can get a Maylar diaphram, etc etc. And then you have different horn bodies; full sized horns and minihorns. Obviously prices can and will vary depending on what you get.


what can one expect when paying for the 6 hundred dollar horns compared to the lesser ones?

Higher efficiency, lower crossover points can be used, better midrange tonality.


im very interested in horns but barely know anything about them.. do they go UNDER the dash where they cant even be seen??

Under the dash; yes. Can they be seen still...yeah, unless you cover them somehow. Mine will be incognito once I finish my install because of the panel I'm going to build.

yessir- they made an impression on me last year, I liked what I heard- - Fusion is just not quite a household name but make very good stuff if you can get past the alien green. All their gear comes packaged in a hard aluminum suitcase, fit and finish on their speaks and subs is excellent IMO.

Squeak- even the mids are beastly/ sick ...

Just checked out the Fusion Jonah Lomu line. It does look like some quality equipment. They could use a different color scheme though.

if you liied the R19, and R22, the R25 with the silk dome are smoother...all out, best I have heard, the newer Kicker SS30.

fusion will be making waves . they are changing the way they are distributed to a degree so it wont come out as being distributed by mid level quality distributors (stereo shop owners will look at it differently) their whole line is very solid in fact i almost ran their amps just couldnt get by their colors lol. their speakers are great for the $ some of the best i played with. lomu's arent cheap though:) as far as tweeters go oz silks, avi, image dynamics and memphis are my favs all a little different all can sound amazing. kicker and mtx make some good ones as well. in the brighter stuff mb quart diamond and focal....but i dont like bright lol
