ceramic dome tweeters initial impression
1" ceramic dome tweeter cloth surround. Edge driven but for me as a prototype!
Head unit is a AVH-X4800BS
not exactly the best sounding unit but it has a decent amount of processing power.
X over 3.15khz and 4khz ceramic dome tweeters
Placement for now on the dash next to the a-pillar 15 degrees off axis.
Amp phoenix gold xenon 200.4 im gonna take a wil guess and say a solid 50 watts is plenty. Excellent sensitivity.
Mids are custom build based on a platform the build house had. Its long gap long coil design with a coil would for very low inductance and excellent heat dissipation. Carbon cone. Crossed between 2500hz and 3150hz 90 degrees off axis. Has No problem play up to 5k+ but of course as with all 6.5s off axis more realistically 2500 to 3k.
As compared to silks
Just as forgiving but better damped down low. More airy and higher energy.
As compared to cloth. Very similar to the excellent cloth/fiber tweeters still over all more airy and more natural around 2500..
As compared to hard dome. Not quite as sharp but not quite the air similar output an efficiency but without the harshness! Every bit as detailed] maybe abit less attack bit less delay.
This tweeter seems to bridge the gap between the smooth forgiving natural upper mid range silks with more air but not the harshness associated with the hard domes. I love them!
