    Want to go active, what tweets?

    I love my DLS, but I want to try active. I want to do 2 way and I have a great set of Morel HU 621 mids. I need a set of good tweets. I was looking at the Legatia, but I am worried they might not play low enough for just 6.5 inch mid. I want a soft dome.

    Vifa textile domes on madisound.

    They are excellent tweets, VERY laid back (which is my type of tweet). They are 6 ohm though, only downfall. But, they only need 25-40w to get "loud"

    Vifa xt tweeters are pretty popular for running active. Never had a chance to hear one though

    yea the xt 25s are nice. I just picked up some of the tangbands that PE has for 14 bucks on sale and those sound amazing for the money. Just look through madisound and PE you can search hundreds of tweeters.

    Nothin wrong with it, just wont see as much power. I like them bc it allows my amp to run cooler, and more efficiant. Higher impedence speakers tend to shun people due to the fact that the speakers wont see as much power. I didnt like the higher impedance drivers until i read the thread over on DIY, completely changed my mind.

    Re: Want to go active, what tweets?

    I had good luck when I called Maidsound and talked to a guy. He knew the driver I was using for a mid and we came up with a good solution.
    My XT25's are more directional than I would like....meaning they don't like to fire across my windsheild. If you can point them at you, they rock.

    Exactly. I loved the sound of the XT 25's when they were pointed DIRECTLY at me, when they were off axis, the sound just wasnt there.

    to the OP, are your tweets gonna be on, or off axis?

    That makes two of us I've been all over that site for the past couple of days. I should be studying for my last final though...
