Default Need help with a tweeter with a full range woofer match up and more?

Hello everyone I hope everyone is doing well? Well am helping my friend out with finishing his speaker project. He has his full range woofers already. He has bought the Tang Band W6-789E drivers. I have everything to finish his speaker project but,the tweeters and the wire. Well with the wire. We are looking for a wire that is sold in bulk and adds nothing to the sound or takes it away. We saw brands like, Canare, Belden, Gotham, and redco. Does anyone know which wire is amazing sounding? Now for the Next question? Mating a tweeter with the full range woofer? We are looking at both Eton Soft domes the; 19SD-1 tweeters and the 25SD-1 and some seas tweeters H1189, H1149 H0519, H0881, H000E, So that's the list of text dome or soft dome tweeters we are looking at? I did hear that the Eton's are very quick sounding but, who knows? So please chime �� in and let us know? Thanks JM

I would not worry about the wire. Use Cat5 cable solid copper 24 ga strands for your tweeter and you should be fine. Regular stranded 18 ga copper zip cord (lamp cord) works well for mids and full range or tweeter.

For tweeter, I recently bought and tested the Dayton ND25FA-4 it is a 25mm softdome with Neo motor. It is tiny package so fits almost anywhere. Great sound measures flat and is realtively low distortion if used above 3kHz, which you will want to do if using with a full range.

More info here - I tested it with a TG9FD and sounds great. You can even listen to sound clips.

I also like the sound of the RC28F-8, very smooth and lets you have lower XO point. Frame is rather big though so doesn't let you mount tweeter and mid with as small a CTC spacing as ND25FA-4

Here is -24dB/oct BW HPF at 4kHz and ND25FA-4 in trapezoidal OB.
