    Best tweeters for under $75 each

    I only ever want to open my A-pillars once.
    What tweeters would you choose for under
    $150 for the pair (not including shipping) for
    an active setup. I like the sound of silk domes.
    I can go a little higher for something outstanding.

    where does everyone fit tweeters with bodies as large as some of those? i think not even 10 percent of the ones there would work for me :/

    Try a set of Earthquake screamers...they are more like mid tweeters and play an octave below most typical tweeters...they are very sonic accurate...and very efficient.....

    LPG (avail at Madisound). The metal domes are beautiful. Pretty much impossible to beat at the price for top end extension. Nearly flat as a board till 20k....better than the Seas Prestige, esp off-axis.

    Don't get metal. Get neo or silk.
