    How do supertweets sound SQ wise?



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"

    What made me curious was from the latest video from Soundman skip to 1:45 time to see what I mean.

    supertweets tend to be really bright, at least every set I have heard i personally wouldnt be able to deal with the sound of them on a daily basis.

    That was not in any way a sound quality build Meece was showing. Placing the tweeters under the dash was for convenience and cost savings for the customer, plus it avoided cutting up the dash to fit giant tweeters. Add some CDT WS-100i tweeters to your 560i crossovers. I have them in stock.
