  • Peerless by Tymphany XT25SC90-04 1" Dual Ring Radiator Tweeter

    OK this question may show what a nube I am but on this tweeter there is no + or - designation just a skinny tab and a wider tab . How do I know which is + and - ?

    According to a data sheet for this tweeter the small terminal is the positive one. I found this on a competitor's site (starts with an M) and cannot give you a link therefore.

          I don't have them any more, but mine had a blue stripe on the larger terminal, maybe that means "negative"; I was also confused, so tried connecting it each way; the smaller terminal is positive, the opposite to normal

              Blue stripe here, too. I'll check any other newish Tymphany pieces to see if that's a standard for them.

                In a private message I sent to Neptune 1 on December 31, I attached the data sheet I found on that "other" site where it's clearly stated that the smaller terminal is positive.

                    Okay finally at the bottom of this:
                    Madisound website: XT25SC90-04 small tab (+)
                    Tymphany support: XT25SC90-04 small tab (-), XT25SC40/50 small tab (+)
                    Tymphany manufacturing: XT25SC90-04 large tab marked blue (-)

                    And my actual polarity test:
                    XT25SC90-04 small tab verified (-)

                    Special thanks to the Tymphany reps who gave actual and correct info. Hopefully they can pass that on to manufacturing to get the terminals marked/marked correctly (...and also Madisound corrects their website info).
                    This was a post from 2012 so manufacturing might've changed, but I thought it deserved a mention as the OP did a polarity test on the tweeter. Sorry it's a month late as well!!
