    WHat are some nice smooth tweeters in the market today?

    Im all about smooth tweeters, anything even close to harsh/bright and I dont like it. What are some tweeters to take a look on the market?

    Right now I have the rainbow cal 20, and I was extremely happy with that running active on the 9887, I want to experience the cal 25's, nobody seems to be sellin em on the forums.

    Any suggestions welcome!

    Eh, I would say around the $50-$100 range?...Ill put it this way. I dont care about warranties, I dont mind buying used good condition items, refurbished, or things new on ebay to save a few bucks(depending on what item im buying.)

    Basically Im a non-jew whos a jew.

    But with the equipment that I own, I obviously will spend the $$ if its worth it. I like researching things too.

    there's a tweeter showdown somewhere that has the good, the bad, and the harsh about the top 25 or so tweets.

    I usually had the tweeter Around 3000-3500 or so, I never liked my tweeters to play very low, I thought it brought out more of the harsher qualities. Maybe its just me.

    I want something smooth/silk. Nothing metal/harsh at all.

    and if you like the cal25s then the Blaupunkt VC100's are supposed to be from the same build house and very comparable. Look them up on DIYMA

    Re: WHat are some nice smooth tweeters in the market today?

    Also the tweeter has to be reasonably small, due to the fact of its location:

    http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u...g?t=1233867825

    Thats where my cal 20 sits now. Looks very clean, and the sound is nice as well, maybe not 100% Optimal, but were working with an older civic, what can you expect?

    I have heard a little bit about the Sea Neos, I need to look into them Any model number to search?

    OHHHH noo.. about the VC100. I have a friend who has them installed, MAN they are BRIGHT tweeters. Seriously. I dont want anything even close to that tweeter. I bought them and never installed them gave em to a friend to uss because he needed tweeters and just wow.

    I dont want them to play low, it all depends on the driver im using to what sounds non harsh/good to me how I would cross it. I usually crossed my cal 20's around 3500.
