Ah. I didn't realize you didn't need the crossover. I don't know why MB Quart lists their sensitivity rating that way either.

What kind of tweeter did you want?

~1.5 inch max diameter so it will fit in my factory grill (included a pic a few posts back). I'm looking for something that will sound good (sq oriented) and be able to keep up with the daytons. Everything will be powered by a 18 wrms/ch headunit for now, but eventually, I will get an amp for the daytons. I mentioned the active XO in my first post, so you must have missed that.

I don't know which has the best SQ honestly. I know a little of the difference between what mylar, titanium, and silk dome-types sound like (I like silk), but I don't know which is most faithful.

PE doesn't have much in the way of car tweeters. If you're looking for something fairly cheap, you might want to check millionbuy.com:
http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/millionbuy/car-tweet.htm
or
http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...category_ID=24

Madisound has a pretty big selection too, but it looks like the good ones all start out around $40/pair.

The millionbuy website sucks. They have pyle (of sh*t) horn drivers listed under car audio . I'm not putting horn loaded tweets into my car . And what's up with the prices on woofersetc.com? I'm not paying $150+ for a pair of tweets.

Joking aside, I really appreciate your help, but I'm not looking for anything cheap. I'm aiming for great sound quality, and cheap and sq don't go together.

I am having alot of difficulty finding a tweet to match those specs.
since the daytons go to 3k your looking for a tweeter with a fs of .5 times crossover frequency or less but yet very small.


tweeters I can think of with a fs of 1500hz or less are basically 1" to 1 1/8th not leaving much for a faceplate.

The closest comprise I can think of is from parts express 275-030 at a diameter of 1.75" that you could trim if needed. I do have these tweeters on my pc and I am very impressed. If you could go larger I think you could find better drivers.


something like
Parts express MA audio car tweets

may be used but few specs are given and I suspect they are suited to a crossover of at least 3K

I edited out the part about Pyle.
millionbuy is generally a close-out place, and Woofers Etc. keeps most of their stuff right around retail. They have a HUGE selection, but you can find almost all their stuff cheaper at othe places.

You said you wanted to try to get everything for under $100. Those 6"s are $57 for the pair. IMO tweeters under $43/pair are cheap.

Not to say there aren't good ones out there for under $43 a pair, but most of the ones that aren't listed as car tweeters are 8ohm and are too big to fit in that opening.

Soundstream makes good subs. Not sure about their tweeters, but if I was buying a dome tweeter in that price range, this is probably what I'd get:

I'm going to buy a pair of these because I've already got a 12" from the same series that I like quite a bit as a sub.

They seem to be well suited for small cabinet sizes.

Thanks for the replies everybody. I decided to go with the dayton rs150 mids and the nd20fa tweeters. I should get them Monday or Tuesday, so I will have them installed before next weekend.
