Default Foster / Fostex N30 titanium tweeter upgrade

Hey Everyone,

I have a set of Cerwin vega speakers, the horns are based on the Foster / Fostex N30 tweeters. They originally came with the phenolic diaphragm. I have noticed they make a drop in titanium replacement diaphragm for these.

I'm curious how the titanium would change the sound quality? Power rating and or sensitivity?

Usually (from other drivers specs) the resonances will move higher up, audible or not, and directivity will change. For studio work that might be important (monitors) not in your case. Some will prefer the "softness"/flex of soft membranes. Others members with more experience will tell. Ps. make sure they are originals and not chinas duplicates, a bad experience for audiophiles.
