Default Seas 27 series domes interchangeable?

Does anyone know if the domes on the Seas 27 series motor are interchangebale? I'd like to try a fabric dome on the DXT tweeter...

This is impossible. If you unscrew the DXT you will find out that the dome/surround is a part of the faceplate/waveguide. You can swap out the motors however.

Hi,

Probably better to try out a waveguide on a fabric dome,
like here : Zaph|Audio

rgds, sreten.

Where do I find a waveguide? The links in the Zaph page are outdated.

Ahhh, that does make things hard!

I could grind down a MCM waveguide but I do like the plug and play nature of the DXT lens. It also seems to hold directivity lower than a waveguide of the same diameter if Iím reading the graphs right.
