It is patented so no one else can make them for sale. They are a line source tweeter where the sound travels down a membrane from a linear voice coil setup.

Default Can I buy it online

Hi,

Can anyone provide me the link to Radio Shack online store. I could not get it from their web site. I would like to order the monopole version of the tweeter (part number 400-1390)

Thanks,
Goldy

"why did it die out?"

1. Poor distribution channel matchup (Radio Shack)?
2. Poor driver choice for bottom end (woofer got lousy reviews)?
3. Heil AMT (fantastic) had very similar problems and fate.
4. Radio Shack used cheap plastic ribbon knock-off from Malaysia -- AuraSound uses silk ribbon
5. It is not dead (see: AuraSound Baby Grand Home Theatre System)

Linaeum Monopole tweeter: 1.5 AR-52520 204-1

This is the better silk ribbon version and it is $21.00 if they have any.

The silk diaphram version from Aurasound is the better one.

Default Aurasound goes only 20k but RS goes 25k

Hi,

How is it that RS unit goes to 25K whereas Aurasound unit goes to 20K and is still considered better. What is the crossover frequency for both? Can users of both please help?

Thanks in advance,
Goldy

Aura is being more realistic and accurate quoting the 20k (no pun intended).

Their silk ribbon is definitely better, as is their quality control.

You are more likely to get miss-matched drivers from RS.

Crossover at 3k or above (I crossed over at 3.5k)

There is a noticeable dip between 2k and 3k.

Regards

Joe

Smoother is the answer for why the silk is better. As said above 3k for the xover.
