    need on axis tweet

    Hey, I need a 3/4 to 1" tweet for an on axis app. It' going in the tweeter pod on a Is 250 for those that have seen one. If not, it's at the front corner of the side glass, pointed at the cabin. I'm a little nervous 'bout a metal dome on axis. I'd like a jl c5 3/4", but their on backorder. Could I do a jl xr 100? or maybe a rainbow cal 25. I'd like to stay under $150.00 and size matters, the pod isn't that large. Thanks.

    Vifa XT19 or the Alpine Type X derivative. Also, the Polk SR tweeter is a 22mm tweeter based on the Vifa XT25. Both are ring radiator designs that are very low distortion and play flat well beyond 20khz.

    ^^What he said. I have the Polk SR6500 components with the above polk/vifa tweet. Sounds great and should fit the bill perfectly.

    The xt25 is EXCELLENT on-axis, but might be a problem to mount. If you can find the Alpine SPX17 Pro tweet it also does VERY well on-axis and is smaller. Might find some for sale on DIYMA. I currently run those and they're quite good...

    I have a pair of SR tweeters for sale if you'd like to try them. Mine are basically brand new...just used for testing. Smaller than the "SC" version of the XT25, too.

    Re: need on axis tweet

    Also going to recommend a variant of the Vifo XT25/19 ring radiators. Good luck finding a smoother, flatter response tweeter for an on-axis install. I own the big bastards but not everyone may be able to fit them. Keep an eye out for the smaller Alpine versions and it will be worth the wait.

    Re: need on axis tweet

    Thanks for all the responces, The controlling factor is the pod that the tweet needs to fit into. The vifa xt-19 on madisound would be waay to huge. The pod is the size of a small chicken egg, and about the same shape. I might even need to shave any flange on a 3/4" tweet. I'm gonna have to do some test fitting this weekend. If I could shoehorn in either a jl xr-100 or a rainbow cal 25silk, would either work? Basically are they ok on axis?
