    From what I understand, metal tweeters are sharper and more crisp. The silk tweeters are more natural and mello. I can't say much for dis. and adv. I'd go with silk if I got them.

    Often, soft domes roll-off before metal tweeters.

    Re: tweeter

    often these are generalities of tweets. its more of how the tweeter is installed and how well tuned it is. you can definitely make a silk tweeter sound just as dynamic as a metal tweeter and you can get a metal tweeter sound as smoothe as a silk tweet. but thats IMO.

    Re: tweeter

    ^ agreed with kenny, as it can depend on the construction and specs of the tweeter, as well.

    Re: tweeter

    In other words, you really can't apply generalizations to tweeters just based on material.
