    Rainbow v. Aura tweeters

    Hey all, I was wondering what ppl thought about the tweeters that came with the Rainbow SLC component sets v. the Aura RPM tweeters that desertheat has been selling. I was debating if I should use the Aura tweets in my install or not... and if not, then I can donate them to my little brother.

    Opinions?

    havent heard Aura tweets- and assuming you'll use them with the SLC xover cannot comment if they benefit from it or its strengths- you could have a hard time tuning

    What? Something wrong with those Auras? Are they not what you expected them to be?
