  • New Peerless Tweeter

    Wow. That corundum dome from Peerless looks very interesting and really high end for the asking price. Copper cap, underhung coil, rear chamber, low Fs, etc. It even has a removable grill like the Transducer Labs units. I guess we don't know the distortion specs, but it really seems like a $200 tweeter. https://www.parts-express.com/peerle...eter--264-1676

    I really began to wonder whether this tweeter and its counterparts would ever hit the market. Design work on these units dates back to around 2013, though the datasheets I have are from 2014. The entire series is characterized by long excursion under-hung motors, laden with copper, and metal domes. A few models feature 102mm ferrite magnets, and in-excess of +/-1mm linear excursion. I am very curious to see measurements on any of them. They appear to have what it takes to be excellent performers.!! Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk

      Same moving mass as the D25BG08-06 but with a LOT lower sensitivity.
      But it does have longer Xmax and slightly lower Fs.
      I'd love to see the distortion performance.

        That looks like a new (to me) style of terminals on the back.* Aside from that it looks like its could be a real performer and hopefully easy to work with.*

            Dude, you have tweeters that are almost as old as your underwear.* You don't need more.

              I do when an 8" 2-way requires a tweeter this robust. Go away, Cheesehead, I'm sure you have a stockpile too!

                      Has anyone tested a version of this motor?

                        Way to bury the lede.

                        It has a flat faceplate! The odds of waveguide compatibility look favorable.

                          Now all I need to know is the diameter of that grid.* It might fit in the SEOS-8.

                              One on the way! We'll see what it looks like on a waveguide!
