    Icon10 silk tweeters

    i was wondering. any of you guys prefer silk tweeters personally?
    im about to get a new set on comps and it consists of silk dome tweeters.
    is this a good peice? for music, i listen to rap, R&B for that deep bass, and rock and techno as well.

    Re: silk tweeters

    Diaphragm material does make up some of the sound but the entire tweeter design is more responsible for the overall sound.

    I end up liking a lot of silk dome tweeters, but it is ultimately the design as a whole that I like.

    Re: silk tweeters

    Soft domes usually have a smoother sound vs. a hard dome that tends to be sharper......usually
    (as already stated, design can negate either of these assumptions)

    Re: silk tweeters

    really??
    mannn i can't wait.
    after i get those comps. i'll get a new amp to power that and bridge that amp to my other amp for my subs. it's going to be a nice set up.

    for that tweeter, where in the car would be a perfect place to put it near the dash?

    I really want to hear a set of plasma tweets someday

    Are you concerned with stuff like stage height, width, instrument spacing, etc? Rap doesn't have a lot of that

    Indeed... My dad always talks about these Natural Gas tweeters, said they are the most awesome thing he ever heard.

    for silks i would mount them on the A pillar and swivel it towards yourself
    i hear swivelling them against the windshield works good too
    since the sound bounces right back but personnally not sure if i would
    do that
