I found it quite instructive to go and listen to some test tones, even compromized tones from the internet. I can't even hear 15kHz at my age and 12kHz is 'right up there' to my ears. Perhaps for some of us, it really is good advice not to worry about a roll-off at 12kHz !

Thanks again for the thorough replies. Does keeping to the fostex line help sound quality overall , i mean , is FT17H the best fostex tweeter for the money, the best tweeter to pair up with fe207e for the money , or simply the best tweeter the money ? Keeping the brand isn't important for me , just the end result of the whole package.

Roland.

You'll struggle to get anything 'better' for the money, & it does work well with their wide-band units, as you'd expect.

Actually, the FT17H is a bit of a sleeper -it's a very nice little unit indeed & providing its not crossed in too low, beats a lot of rather pricer tweeters.

If you can find them (i have a drawer with a half-dozen spare) the Foster-made tweeter in the Radio Shack add-on tweeter pod is quite good -- i like it better than FT17 but not as nice as FT96 (not that you notice a whole lot of difference with an XO >12k).

let's gave Dave the benefit of the doubt, and assume that was a dimple rypo, and that he meant "add-on tweeter pod not the acronym for piece of s... ('cause that kind of language would be uncharacteristic of him )

Thanks for the replies. I don't think i can find the foster in Romania. I will go for fe207e and ft17h from a local dealer , and maybe in a few months i will get a pair of phase plugged enabled fe207e's from dave, if they are still on stock @madisound.
