Hi

I am currently putting together an audio projects website and I will be featuring my Brines speakers.

I don't have the pictures to hand at the moment but I will post a message on this thread when its up and running.

I hope this helps.

Hi

I am thinking about adding a super tweeter to my speakers but would like to know if you have any suggestions for an enclosure?

Bob has recommended the FT17H. I would like to mount them in a small case on top of the existing speakers if possible.

I don't necessarily need to use the FT17H you have better suggestion.

Thanks

My speakers

Well, they don't need an enclosure, so you can make a simple box with the same finish as the main enclosure to stick on the top. The FT17 is a nice little unit, good as anything else you'll get for the price & works well with the 167.

Thanks Scott

What would you recommend crossing the tweeter with?

That's one of those 'how long is a piece of string' questions TBH. Depends on what you happen to like; I'd probably cap it off at ~12KHz initially & adjust from there. It shouldn't need any padding, IIRC Bob took some measures a while back & found its sensitivity to be pretty much identical to the 167.

Scott...what value cap would achieve ~12Khz?

Try ~1.5uF. Just get a handful of cheap caps. & see which suits you best. Once you've done that, you can buy something fancier of the appropriate value if you feel the need.

Thanks Scott, that's good advice.
