120dB from a tweeter?

Hmm... maybe, but you'd want to be a little ways away.

10m away from a 120dB-capable system would give you pretty lifelike transients, I'd say.

The Bemya TPL-150 is supposed to be pretty good.

lol that is $450USD, probably $800AUD if its sold here in Australia. The Peerless would be 1/20th the price of that thing.

Besides the Peerless, I have a few cheap chinese made ebay compression drivers in mind. driver #1 driver #2

I'm hoping they are as good as Eminence's no-frills offerings; since some Eminences are imported from China I beleive (their ASD1001 compression driver is).

Sadly the particular hi-Vi is not sold here, and even then because of its wide horizontal dispersion; not a good match for the dispersion pattern of the rest of the speaker.

Hi tech, you can always ruotate it by 90 degrees !

Normally I do not buy any driver in my country because they are outrageous pricing I prefer purchase at solen.ca and pay shipment and tax , everytime I save money the same

Cheers,
Paolo

Too bad that you are in Aus since I could have gotten you some very good compression drivers from B&C for not much more than those Chinese knock-offs. I never understood why drivers are so expensive in AUS. Those Chinese drivers are like $US17 in China.

If price were not an issue, what would you consider the one or two or three "best" sounding alternatives that meet the 102db efficiency test?

In my case I'd be mating them to two (or four) high efficiency PHL or AE drivers in the 6.5" (or so) size range.

Would want to cross around 2khz
