Default Dayton RS28A-4 vs Seas 27TBFCG

Two tweeters, Dayton RS28A-4 vs Seas 27TBFCG. Has anyone done a comparison between these two tweeters? I'm sure they sound different form one another.

Zaph Audio has an interesting MTM project using the Seas 27TBFCG. Whereas Parts Express has a DIY kit featuring Reference Series Drivers including the RS180S-8 7" Woofers and RSRS28A-4.

The whole cut-outs and recesses seem close enough so that the tweeters for each project could be swapped out, Dayton RS28A-4 to Seas 27TBFCG and visa versa. Of course the x-overs would be different.

I'm wondering which project sound better.

I've tried both and also the 27TDFC, Peerless HDS & North D25 all had pretty much 104 mm faceplates. Just the slots for the terminals were a bit different for every driver.
All are very good low distortion tweeters.
It would be to hard for me to pick one for you. I liked them all and could live with any one of them.
You would have to try them yourself as you might like cymbals or high hats or other instruments to sound the way you'd like them to.
Each have very minor differences and what I hear may not be what you'll hear from them.
If you were to twist my arm and make me cry 'uncle' I might side with the RS28 as it is pretty much neutral sounding to me compared with the others.

I always liked the Rs28 since I heard it and compared it to other tweeters.
Here's a thread at PE matching that tweeter to an Usher midbass driver. Should make for an excellent monitor.
