Any recommendation on using Vifa 1" ring radiator (XT25TG30-04)
over Vifa 1" (DX25TG05-04) silk dome tweeter?

I have used the XT25 and I like it. I have not tried the DX25.

But I can make two comments:

The first one is a bit strange. If one were using the tweeter with a waveguide, the XT25 would work much better. I have had problems with the domes causing a response dip and the DX25 has a dip in the same frequency range even in the flat baffle tests.

Perhaps a more useful suggestion is to look at this web page:

Here you can see and compare the responses of the DX25 and XT25. From this, I would pick the XT25 for smoother freq. response and lower harmonic distortion in the listening range. (esp. the odd harmonics)

I am not so keen on the looks of the XT25. But one gets use to it and it does work well.

I would recommend the BG version any time.

The TG30 is an old version, and the new BG60 sounds alot better. I never really liked the DX25.

Maybe I am wrong, but isn't it DX25 very similar to the tweeter emploied in the big ProAc?
