    RS-Audio Pro Tweeters are definitely the best I've ever heard.

    Aura Tweets are very very nice. Rainbow Soundline tweets work very nice too. The only other tweeters I've listened to are the nobium PA ones, which some people call harsh.

    The tweets in the Alpine Type X have a crisp, but warm sound to them too.

    Re: What are the best tweeters you have every heard?

    I find the Kicker R-19 tweets to be very good. I've only ran about 3 different pairs but the kickers are the best I've had.

    No

    what model?
    Illusion Audio CH1

    ID only makes two models of horns right?
    No. They make 3. The CD-1e (~$300), the CD-1Pro (~$450), and the CD-2's (~$899)

    one that is like 600 and the one youre referring to right?
    My horns are comparable to the CD-2's, both of which retail in the $899 range. Also, you can change out the compression drivers. For example, you can get the CD-2's with a Neo magnet, or you can get a Maylar diaphram, etc etc. And then you have different horn bodies; full sized horns and minihorns. Obviously prices can and will vary depending on what you get.

    what can one expect when paying for the 6 hundred dollar horns compared to the lesser ones?
    Higher efficiency, lower crossover points can be used, better midrange tonality.

    im very interested in horns but barely know anything about them.. do they go UNDER the dash where they cant even be seen??
    Under the dash; yes. Can they be seen still...yeah, unless you cover them somehow. Mine will be incognito once I finish my install because of the panel I'm going to build.
