originally bought focal 165ca1 and immediately fell in love with the highs...TO ME...they sounded amazing...first time really listening to an aftermarket system. They were bright, detailed, and had a beautiful stereo effect. I had to upgrade to manage the Watts of the amp better, so I got the hertz hsk 165. Although the mid sounds better to me, I am very unhappy with the tweeters. They lack everything I liked with the focal tweeters. I'm thinking this is because the focal is metal and the hertz is silk tweeters. The only thing I like with them is if I move around in the seat the frequency response doesn't change as much as it did with the focals...I'm assuming because of the principle design/shape of the focal tweeter.
My question, just out of quriosity, how many of you prefer the metal vs silk tweeters or vice versa?
also I'm thinking of replacing the hertz tweeters and I'm looking at the following:
Cadence cvlt10 $90
Cadence cvlt35n $50
Lanzar optitw $46
cdt Drt-25t $150
Memphis 15-mc1am $140
Rockford t2t-s $136
Any opinions or suggestions...1" metallic material, 3khz to 20khz, handle at least 90 wrms. (unless someone can show me specific eq curves that would simulate a metallic material without introducing the harshness and sibilance I've been getting in trying to recreate it)
