  • Low cross tweeter

    I'm looking for a small framed tweeter that will crossover around 1200
    Any suggestions?

    That is low. What kind of budget are you looking at? What is the application?

      Well looks like I had a typo
      I meant to write 1400
      It's a 3 way. Crossing over two a seas L15rn-sl

        There are very few tweeters of any size that will cross that low, much less small framed varieties.
        Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

          It's very typical to try to shoot for 3 octaves coverage for the mid on a 3-way. So your Seas will run from 175Hz to 1.4k? Is that a 6" driver?

          C-C between a 6" and any "normal" 4" tweeter would be about 5", allowing an Fc around 2.7kHz.
          A 6" cone shouldn't suffer from beaming at 2k, possibly good even up to 2.5k. So . . . what are your issues? If the Seas has a problem at 1.5k, I'd say it's not meant to work well as a mid.

            Another typo, it's an L16, not 15. http://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com...m-cone-woofer/

              I'm trying to reuse my Pluto woofers
              For a new build but things get a little squiggly after 1400
              And I really like the fact they play low in a seal box!

                Probably the best way to get a tweet to play that low is to use it in a waveguide.

                    If the SPL requirements aren't to wild I'd say maybe the SB29RDCN-0004. It's about 75mm diameter and can take a beating. And if you did decide to use a waveguide later, it does well in quite a few waveguides and can cross around 1khz with one.

                    This isn't a bad idea in my opinion. There will most defineatly be tweeter flare issues if you were to cross up around 2.5khz with a flush dome. They might not be a big deal, but if you're trying for uniform polar response I think a sub-2khz cross over is mandatory.

                    What's your woofer choice?

                          I did. Do a search in the gallery forum on Poor Plumbers Pluto.

                            You've already got the NSW2 . . . or you could try the Peerless 830893.
