    CDT Tweeters- are the hards better than the softs?

    I have the EF-61CF's with the soft dome tweeters and i was thinking about getting and imaging enhancement set when i saw
    CDT:
    New engineering break through for metal domes:
    cdt audio news:
    “the metal dome – done right – is the optimal choice for practical automotive sound systems. the small size, flat energy response, moderate cost and good power handling offers the best balance of parameters. until recently metal dome types have had a somewhat hot (sometimes when cranked up) harsh sound due to response variations right at the very top of the response end. these deviations have recently been engineered out of the response by cdt audio engineers to a sufficient extent to put the best metal domes ahead of the soft dome.”
    if so would i be better off just getting a set of new hard dome tweeters?

    I'd still go for soft domes..hard domes, no matter what they claim, sounds harsh to me.

    Yep, those imaging tweeters will be very harsh and are more of a super tweeter. I love the way my 1" silk CDT's sound. Don't get anything harsher.
