Has any one here use one of this Foster tweeter before?

If so what can you say about it?

Type : Regular-phase Dynamic 100mm ribbon tweeter.
Power : 20 Watts RMS (cont), 50W max.
SPL : 92dB/Watt.
Frequency Response : 6,000 to 40,000Hz +/-2dB (SUBLIME!).

the price is about US$70 for a pair. good price if it is good sounding. I like to use it with my full range, FE167E.

Im using them in an active system. They sound very pleasing to my ears. They go very high with a clear sound. Big difference over my previous tweeters when listening to good sacds.

Hi Ttan98,

I just got a pair of these. Whathave you decided to do with yours?
Darcher Hifi is selling WR125ST's at a bargain right now. I'm thinking two of those, stacked, with a ribbon hard-up above them would be sweet. (The Planet 10 design uses a Fostex dome.)

cheers

Doug
