    Can I ask - why the love?
    Specifications / measurements or listening / detail / dynamic capabilities?

    I got mine from Solen but hopefully somebody gets them.

    Solen in Canada carries Wavecor drivers.

    I looked up wavecore and the in the US it lists meniscus as the vendor but you can't get tw030wa11/12. Do you guys get it from Canada?

    Well- the old TLabs that some say these are knockoffs of weren't exactly small faces either. You know what they say about a tweeter with a big faceplate? It should also have a big magnet.
    Examples:
    MDT33
    TLabs N26
    Motus
    TB 25-1743
    Fostex 33mm
    Audax 34mm
    Seas Exotic

    ...and now the Peerless, and likely others I didn't mention.

    Big magnet (and maybe big diaphragm/dome as well) just equals big faceplate. I guess the DA32 is over 5" deep. Yowza! That tweeter gotz junk in its trunk.

    Later,

    Took me a while to find, but the Peerless website has pictures of the 25mm and 32mm tweeters:

    This page has measured drawings too. Faceplates are big - 123 and 132 mm respectively.

    That could be the case, still, the distortion in the usable range is extra low, I have not had time to do extensive testing yet.
    It will happen soon with calibrated dB measurements.

    I think part of the reason I like the Wavcor so much is the way the waveguide better couples the dome to the air...

    If they dug a little deeper into the bass, I could sell all else and be happy. It's honestly an over-all toss-up between them and my Attitudes, IMBO, but both for different reasons. 3rd and 4th and 5th would be, in no particular order, Stance, Vijon, and Glucinium Amor.
