But there was no conclusion to what is a better tweeter.

Since this thread is over 2 years old with no information update, I wonder anyone has actually owned, build, listened and measured the three tweeters below.

I like to hear someone's opinion both subjective and objectively for the tweeters below and how they stack up in the HD and Dispersion accuracy.

Scanspeak D3004/6640-00 Be Dome
Scanspeak R2904/7000-00 Ring Radiator
RAAL 150-4D Amorphous Core Ribbon
My apologies! My brain went into over drive after reading this whole thread and typed the RAAL model incorrectly in my post before.

It should read RAAL 140-15D Amorphous Core Ribbon.

Megasat, it does not really matter what it reads. These are three different tweeters for two and a half or three different applications. Take the one that fits your application. In case you don't know what your application is, double-check

off axis behavior / directivity match @ x-over point to the next larger driver.

For some of my applications, the BE dome would be worthwhile auditioning. But the price tag is scary.

Thanks 6.283! I am now in the information gathering stage. Not really in a specific application designing stage. But when the drivers are picked, it's my best interest to get them worked together in unison.

And you can't always manufacturer plots come with the data sheets.

I think the price of BE dome isn't too bad when compared to other high end commercial speaker offering but only if the BE dome works better and sounds better than $40 tweeter raved by DIYers.
