Default Anyone know some more about these

Does anyone know some more about these tweeters.

I have figured out allready that they are vintage Electro Voice tweeters, but I'm not shure wich type. Is it the T35, T350 or another one. Datasheet anyone ??

T35's. The data sheet is available with a web search. They might be fakes if not clearly marked. Several knock-off have been seen coming from the east.

All of the t35's or T350's I've seen had round magnet structures with round sheet metal cups shaped covers on the back that had the EV name and model.

I Don't know if the ones I've gor are origanaly Electro Voice drivers.
Yhey have only a couple of numbers on the back. That says nothing about the oigin. I have seen a lot of driver with no company nmae on the back wich were OEM drivers from very knowm company's. Mine came out of an old PA system wich had Electo Voice woofers and midhorns wich look a lot like the old Electro Voice also. I guess it was an all Electro Voce system.

I have measured the tweeters frequency response and it is kind of rough, just like the way they sound. Defenitly not the smoothest and most detailed speakers around but there dynamics are truly awsome. The frequency response also shows that they only begin at 6 kHz and radically stop at 15 kHz with almost 40 db/oct. Strange little things, don't know what to do with them yet, got four of them and just want soem more information on them.

They maybe some kind of OEM T350 offering from EV. I believe the T35 was good down to a crossover of 3500Hz and the T350 was much higher (don't remember how much higher).

With such a narrow BW, they would be almost useless in a home audio system unless you went for a 5-way system. They may be usable in a 3 or 4-way HT type application.

They look like T35 avedon sonophase throat tweeter made by EV but for Klipsch, it might be the ones that Klipsch renamed K77 but I'm not sure. (You might want to check frequency response before using them.)

I once blew a T-35 tweeter listening to "Silence is Golden" by the Tremelos, way back in 1966.

Buy some of the phenolic diaphramed Beyma's or BMS and sell the EV's to a vintage enthusist. You'll get much better sound.
