Default External tweeter

Hi,

Could someone give me information about any external tweeter, ala BW or similar?
I would like to study the possibility to fit one in my project.

Thanks

I have seen other projects where they put a "conventional" tweeter in a open-baffle on top of the enclosure. I think it has something to do with influence of the woofer, the displaced air of the woofer can't affect the tweeter.

I'm trying to study the time alignment and the difraction response, but with a ready made tweeter. The adapting housing would considered as an alternative.

Any manufacturer builds this?

Swan (i think its them) build a little "pod" tweeter, and there are neo tweeters from Audax* (Morel too IB, probably others) that aren't much bigger than the dome that would be ideal for mounting in a small, minimum diffraction housing.

*TM010A1, TM010A7, TW014B5 & the TM025C1 pictured to name a few

Eh,

the audax seems to be good enough for a small housing, thanks.
But I'm trying alsto to find a complete unit.
I searched swan, but they are speaker builders, not drivers manufacturers, aren't they?

Default Car Audio Tweeters

Tweeters for use in CARS
are often of the type mounted separate.

Of course they are mostly 4 ohms.
So if you could use these, SEARCH for "CAR Speakers Tweeters"
on the web

Try the Morel MDT38. It is a pretty good tweeter, and looks like exactly what you want.

Arrow About Tweeter Mounting

Here is how Naim has done in several Loudspeakers.
This allows adjustment of the the tweeter direction.
And I imagine it avoids the tweeter to
be affected by resonances in the frontbaffle.

This is a flexible solution - to a degree, at least

Picture is from Naim SL2 user manual

/halo - likes flexible systems
