Default Monaco RBT95

Just checking, but should the Monacor RBT95 be surface-mounted (apart from the cutout for the back of the tweeter of course) or flush-mounted on the baffle?

Thanks for any help.

Flush-mounted for sure. Otherwise you get heavy reflections and interferences from the edges. Front plate thickness is 8 mm!

Hello Dissi,

Sorry to bother you again.

What I really meant in my question at top was whether the Monacor tweeter should be recessed into the baffle or simply screwed straight onto the baffle face without recessing into the baffle.

So, just to confirm, you're saying the Monacor should be recessed so that the face (the outside edges) of the tweeter should be flush with the surface of the baffle?

Thanks again.

Hi gassit,

I just noticed the face plate of the RBT-95 is chamfered to the left and to the right. Therefore my advise to flush-mount the driver is hardly doable.

The tweeter is used in the Monacor Cirrus and is surface-mounted. Not nice, but simple and obviously the only solution...

Re; driver mounting. Generally it is good to keep bumps/edges and anything odd away from the face of the cabinet. I can recall reading many years that one manufacturer measured changes in the measured frequency of a tweeter caused by the heads of fixing screws...! Least that's what they said.
What part of Oz are you from btw?
Cheers, Jonathan

You can you use the RBT95SQ with square flange and flush mount it.

Have you found any t/s parameters for these tweeters?
