This chinese tweeter seems to be a serious alternative to the good expensive scanspeak D3806 65$ vs 170$

TW030WA05 to 08

Wavecor is a new company from old danish sound technology employees. This is an explanation to the origin of this driver.

Note : this company provides all measurements of their loudspeakers, a very rare service.

Hi all,

Jerome, I found these low Fs tweeters

http://www.tb-speaker.com/detail/1230_04/25-1743s.htm

http://www.scan-speak.dk/datasheet/pdf/d2604-833000.pdf

(both are much cheaper than the D3806?) but more expensive than the TW

Hi !

Yes ! Why not ? they are 1" tweeter, the 3806 is a 1.5" with more area.
I used the DX25 which is d2604-833000 with one magnet and a smaller chamber ?

I'm new to speaker building but this build seems like the perfect one to start out with although I do have the Hawthorne OB drivers now that I'm listening to.

I ordered the drivers from Madisound but can anyone suggest where to get the caps and inductors. Madisound also I would think but since I'm new part number would be nice or at least what wire gauge/model for the inductors and type of capacitors.

I have decided on the Pano version to start with the following

12R Resistor
5uF film cap
3mH Inductor (aircore or sledgehammer)??
12mH Inductor (aircore or sledgehammer)??

Thanks

PS, I forgot to ask what's the best type of bolts/nuts for mounting the drivers?

Hi. Which tweeter did you order?

For inductors you want Sledgehammer (iron core) for the 12mH and air core for the 3mH.
Hang on a bit before ordering, I think John as some new refinements that he likes.

For mounting I just used black wood screws that I got from Parts Express (I think)

Hi Panomaniac
I ordered the D3806 tweeter.

Regarding John's updates, are they different than that schematic of his you posted right after yours? I was thinking of just getting the schematic with the fewest number of parts but if it's an audible upgrade, I am eager to wait and see yours/his suggestions!
