Question On the hunt for the great off-axis tweeter response


I'm searching for the "big great" tweeter who's got the very best off-axis response. Covering the area 4-20k.

I've got my eyes on these:

Morel ST-728

Vifa DX25TG05

Morel being the one who "looks" best. I haven't heard any of the morel tweeters so I don't know the sound quality. I normally use Raal Ribbon in my speakers which I love alot.

What other tweeters are out there that offers great off-axis curves?

Check out the Seas DXT tweeter. It has a small, shallow waveguide for improved off-axis dispersion.

Here's the raw response in a box (220x400, WxH) with the tweeter horizontally centered and vertically ~9 cm from the top. 2-3k range shows a baffle diffraction null on-axis. 0-90 degrees.
