I use Epos titanium dome tweeters and Alpine Silk dome tweeters.

The alpine sound really nice and easy on the ear , the Epos sound like typical metal dome tweeters do (sill high quality), i was wondering if ribbon will sound better.Most typical ribbon have very high sensitivity 95db or more (my woofers have 84 and 88db sensitivity ) , what i´m looking for is a tweeter that´s easy on the ear and not harsh.

A minha questão é que alguns acham que os ribbon são melhores outros preferem os dome , eu como gosto de ouvir musica relativamente alto necessito de tweeters que se comportem bem com o volume do amp alto.Os ribbon ainda por cima são altamente sensiveis , e isso com o volume elevado não me parece q dê bons resultados.Provavelmente é melhor ficar com o que tenho , que já não são nada maus.

Especialmente os Alpine que tem um som muito suave.

Ribbons over are still highly sensitive, and that with the high volume maybe will not give good resultados. Probably is better to stay with what I have, that is not nothing bad.

Especially the Alpine that has a very soft sound.
Hi L. Duarte,
Where can we look at your speaker/s specs.
If it was me, for a new project, I would use 1- a good ribbon or/ 2- a good dome. Also it depends of the main speaker (mid/woofer). As I don't know your Alpine tweeter, to change it or to upgrade, I would go with a (very) good tweeter (or better than). And maybe you don't like resistors in the tweeter path in the case of a tweeter with high sensitivity. The xover is different as you know in both cases.
