  • Perhaps a dumb question and bullet tweeter with DATS software

    Using the added mass method with a bullet tweeter.

    Why would you want to? Tweeters are already "enclosed", so you don't have to measure Vas. All that's really required is their impedance curve (for x-over design) and frequency response (ditto). DATS can measure the former, but not the latter.

    ​I'd love to see a good FR test on those tweeters, btw. The issue with a lot of cheap tweeters is not just FR, but consistency. For my Blastorama upgrade, I had to by four of the cheap Pyle tweeters as they all had measurably different response curves. I chose two with the closest response curves for the x-over design.

      After I wrote the post I realized that I didn't need the VAS.

      I bought 2 pairs as they are pretty cheap. I'll have to test the others and see how they look.

        Any measured differences in their impedance response curves is likely to show up as measurable differences in their FR as well.
