    Is that an 8 ohm or a 4 ohm tweet? I'm thinking of replacing my CDT's with these, but the ones I see are 8 ohm. Will this matter if I'm using a passive x-over?

    yea these are 8ohms. I dunno but when i talked to the guy at meniscus he said you should set the crossover to 3khz at a 24db/oct. i dunno what the settings of your passive crossover is though.

    Changing the impedance is going to affect the crossover point...

    Which is NOT a good thing.

    Moral of the story; Yes, putting an 8ohm tweeter on a passive designed for 4ohm will matter, and in a bad way.

    To fix that, we must wire 2 tweeters in parallel then!

    If you really like the sound of the tweeters, but the only restriction is the impedance, I say go fix it by replacing the cap and/or inductor on the passive (may need one or both)



    Having a different impedance shouldn't stop you from working around it, instead of looking for a whole new tweeter that might not even be for you. Getting a set of tweeters just for the impedance is satisfying your passive xover. What you need to do is satisfy your ears.

    Re: tweets...

    OK, so how about these ? I know they are 6 ohm, but I'm getting closer. I guess what I should be asking is does anyone think I am going to gain that much SQ to make a difference by switching out the CDT's I am currently using for one of these other brands? And btw, I'm still using the passive x-over that came with my RE comps unless Ican upgrade that to something else.

    Why not those? I'm going to try those with my RE comps with koda crossovers(3khz at 36db/oct).
