    Anyone heard of these A/D/S tweets?

    Just wondering if anyone knows anything about them. I just got outbid on a silk dome aluminum case pair by $2.50

    Second question...I have been looking for a while for nice higher end tweets...I am not finding what I want...post up some links. I need more stuff to look at.

    Well, they are going in the a-pillars so for large format they still need to be <4".

    I went ahead and got the A/D/S tweets. Time will tell what I think.

    I am talking to Don about the Morel Supremo Piccalo...Price is right.

    Range is <$400 for the set. If I see something that really looks good I'll just save for a few more months and get them.

    Well, you have the obvious such as the Seas Lotus and Rainbow Cal25 and Cal28. Morel Supremo as you mentioned.

    Scanspeak has some high end offerings.

    DLS Iridium tweeter.

    Dynaudio.

    Hiquphon

    Aurum Cantus ribbons

    LCY ribbons

    All I can think of off hand.

    I wont touch anything from the lotus line ever again.

    I like the rainbows, but dont like them for the price. IIRC they are well over my price and the Morels perform very similar.

    Scan speak is on the list...

    Dont really care for the sound of DLS

    I like DYN, just dont think I can afford the ones I like, and the next line down wont fit.

    Not enough room to get the ribbons to work...

    I still have the BG neos to try out next

    Products build quality looks great but performance quality and longevity is majorly lacking.

    Cliff notes...

    The Ref 165s lasted a few months on 100rms per side. Each speaker decided to randomly start reading 4 to 49ohms with lower volumes. Coils arent covered under warranty...

    3 different speakers in the same install later lead me to point the finger at the Seas.

    You only asked about the CAL28s, I think you would be suprisingly pleased with the detail and openess of the CAL26 which fall well below your allowable budget.

    Which Dyns? The MD130/Esotec should fit the bill, but unfortunately not the MD330/Esotars..

    Any chance you can get me a responce graph or distortion plots for the cal26? I cant find any. Only thing I see that I dont like is the recomended 2.6k x-over point. I am looking for 2k maybe 2.5k...although I am sure they will be ok at that point.


    I dont like the MD 100s and the MD 130s are over my 4" limit... Is the flange removable and able to be flush mounted?

    I just realized that Mikeyboc has the Profi vandi line comps...I can hear them before I commit to something I have never heard.
