Got these in a few days ago. Shipping took 2 weeks.

Are they real? I don’t know, they look real. From people that have real and these they can’t tell the difference. They sure feel solid.

Not bad for $40 shipped. Still don’t know where they will stay, I don’t have sail panels but I can get some made. The pillar isn’t shaped right. They are ok where the hertz where but these are bigger. [ATTACH=CONFIG]26557593[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]26557594[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]26557595[/ATTACH]

I never had the old ones so I can’t compare. But there is nothing wrong with these. They do like to be a bit more on axis then I have them now so I got work to do.

Best $40 set of tweeters out there for sure.

Next is a new DSP and getting all my tuning tools again that I sold years ago.

Then a new mid, probably the upcoming SI TM

How long did they take from order to your hand? Isn't it a long time?

Best $40 I’ve ever spent. I was worried I’d have to retune with the different location and axis but they sound perfect. Luckily highs are more intensity then timing. Since I can’t get into the MS-8 to change the tune anymore.

 

The stage may have got a hair deeper but I can’t tell 100%. Anyway I’m good for now.

 

Have to glass them here eventually. Eyes do get pulled to them if you are looking for them but that’s typical. [ATTACH=CONFIG]26557596[/ATTACH]

After beating on them all day I’m no longer worried about where they are crossed over.

This is the best my car has ever sounded but I can’t say it’s all in these tweeters. Totally different location and axis from the 4x as expensive Hertz.

But they do draw your attention. I’m going to cover them in grill cloth when the glass gets done. That will help I think.

I lost a ton of power so I can’t say. But it’s loud enough and still very dynamic.

I want to say a bit louder then the hertz but again, on axis is typically louder up top with the less roll off.

I don’t think they can be touched under $200 or even $400

For sound quality wise, they are the only cheap tweeter that can beat my massive CT-2s.  However they dont have anywhere near the amount of output needed to keep up with a big subwoofer system. Maybe around 140db and under.
