They are a very good price point to get see if I like Ribbon tweeters. Im worried about spending too little on a cheap ribbon or too much for a RAAL and not like the sound. The only Ribbons I have heard are from Monitor Audio Platinum but those are proprietary. The past 10 years I have owned B&W diamond and soft dome tweeters along with Mirage M3si.
    The Monitor Audio ribbons are very similar to Fountek. I can offer a trial period if you want to check these out.

Im not sure if they would sound completely different or very similar.
    There's an owner of the Anniversario who has owned a speaker with the RAAL as well - you can see his post on Audio Circle. I've used many different ribbons (probably more models than most any other designer). I'm importing this tweeter because it offers performance similar to the RAAL (in some aspects even better than the 70-20XR) for a lower cost. I'm a straight shooter and this was a no-brainer. It's easily better than the Fountek with more linear response, less distortion, and will cross lower.

    No, $350 is for the tweeters only. The Anniversario kit is $850. It's not an AMT and actually performs better than any of the AMT's that I've looked at (open to anyone proving me wrong on that).

Can cross as low as 1.8K or even lower with the right slope. Very flat response (I can supply curves from the baffles I've used). Excellent power handling and low distortion. It compares well with the RAAL 70-20XR, in some ways I think it's better but it is a little lower in sensitivity.

    Are you going to be selling them individually as well, and do you have any pricing/specs?
    Just curious,

    Neither. I wanted something with performance like a RAAL but less costly so I am importing these and receiving great comments on the sound.

    Beautiful work all around...can I ask how you applied your gloss and what you used? (Lacquer, poly, shellac, special sauce, etc?). Did you use a sprayer or buff that nice gloss?
