    Help choosing Tweeter

    I need your help choosing a tweeter for my active set-up. I do have a pair of XXX6.5 mids coming and I need a tweeter to go with them. I am located in Canada so my selection of easy-to-get stuff is a little more limited than the States. I have been looking at Solen, a distributor here in Canada, list of offerings. What would be recommended off this list of tweeters to get, as I could never hear all of these in person? My amp is 40W@4ohms so I am hoping to stick with the 4 to 6 ohm models if possible.

    Here’s the link. http://www.solen.ca/cardri.htm

    If you have a fat budget get one of the scanspeaks... or its still a better value to have the dayton rs tweeter shipped from the states www.partsexpress.com -- You need to cross low with the xxx mid... it gets tons of linear distortion over about 1.2khz... the xxx rly should be lowpassed 600hz at the max 4th order... be used as a woofer more than a mid... Seas MP 5" mid = an awesome mid though btw... (better than the seas excel mids IMHO) not to be used under 150hz though... 300hz would be my recomended 4th order highpass at the lowest personally...

    I was thinking the XXX6.5 would have a low crossover point, but not 1200hz. Humm. I was thinking of going three-way but I was going to try two way first for the added simplicity. If true, difficult to find a tweeter to go that low. My main reason for the XXX was the 2 ohm vc and the decent reviews.

    Do I need to do a rethink on the 2-way set-up with this woofer?

    ideally yes... I mean it is still useable higher up atleast it doesn't have high harmonic distortion products however it wont have nearly the resolution that I like in my component sets...
