    No one has picked them up for production yet, have they?


    If so, let me know. I need a tweeter that I can cross at 1.6khz.

    A guy on DIYMA has them installed in his 04 F-150, so yeah they are in production.

    How do the sound? Are they laid back, or harsh? How much power do you have running to them?

    Thats me!

    I had them in my truck with ID OEMs run active for about a year. I liked that setup quite a bit, it was my first active setup. The tweeters are quite versatile, pretty smooth down to aorund 2.5k. They aren't the most detailed sounding, but not super laid back either. They dont' really do anything wrong. No listening fatigue after hours of listening. Top end response drops off a tad when crossed lower, might need a slight EQ bump but nothing major. Are they worth $200 new? No. But if you can get a used pair for a good deal, I'd go for it. Comparable/siimilar to the Seas Neo Aluminums.

    The ID OEMs dont like playing much higher than 2k without beaming, so keep that in mind. Midbass monsters though in properly treated doors.

    Yeah, I emailed hessdawg about some 2.0 OEM's but he hasnt got back to me yet. I got turned on to some SB Acoustics tweets too, and they are half the price of the TBI's.

    SB Acoustics SB29RDCN-C000-4 Neo Magnet, Ring Dome from Madisound

    They are supposed to play pretty low for tweets. I'm prolly going to cross them @ 2.5khz.

    Depending on where they are mounted, on/off axis, power etc you never know how they will sound crossed at certain frequencies. Play around with them at different locations, different settings until you find the best spot/settings for your particular vehicle/install.

    I agree with mSa, they were a really good all around tweeter but not worth the price tag.

    Re: TBI tweets. Anybody ever heard of them???

    for 200 id look into the scan speak illuminators or helix RS..
    crossing a tweeter that low while remaining loud is a terrible idea..
    my only recommendation is the CDT es02. there great on axis...



    knowledge is powerful but imagination is exponentially powerful..

    experience is key!! otherwise life is boring, uneventful and pointless..

    sub amps RD audio 1750s(SD3500 when i sell the RDs)---better audio prototypes
    mids CDT ES-6--tweeters CDT ES-02
    comp amp SD sax100.4D(for sale looking for a zapco 1000.4)
