Wink Where is Linaeum Tweeter

Hi,

Where do I find Linaeum tweeter. Some site says it is available with Radio Shack, but their web site does not list it. Has anybody used it?

Thanks,
Goldy

You've got to order it as a replacement part. Do a search here for the part numbers.

try this...

http://www.aurasound.com/oemdivision/frameset2.html

It is part number NTL25-354-4A (at bottom)

It has a nice clean "ribbon-like" sound.

For the money it is hard to beat.

Where do you get it from? No Aura dealer lists the tweeter.

It is in their OEM catalog (see link above).

Ya if you go to radio shack and ask for a replacement tweeter for the LX-5. It was the bookshelf with the 6" woofer and the dipole tweeter.

Heres a picture of the box of my pair. I bought these probably a year and a half ago, but the box looks pretty original design.



You can see part # 40-1389. I think they were ~$30 each, plus like $10 for special order.

While we are talking about the 40-1389, what is a good midrange go with it? I have three of them that I have never used for lack of a suitable midrange driver to complement them.

I'm using a Dynaudio 17W75EXT (4 ohm) per side in well-damped/stuffed concrete truncated "pipes" @ 26L (if I remember correctly) with a Linnaeum sitting on top--XO around 3400hz 6db slope--they sound terrific. One time I blew my original Linnaeums (with the silk diaphram) but managed to order a new pair as LX5 replacement tweeters from RS. These have the plastic diaphragm but still sound pretty nice. Total cost was around $70 including postage to Hawaii.
Getting back to you question--you can't go wrong with Dynaudios if you can find a pair on ebay--the EXT's go up to 5K so they seem to mate well with the Linnaeums in my experience. Good luck and have fun with your project.

Default How is Linaeum tweeter different?

Hi,
Does anyone know why Linaeum tweeter sounds so different than other tweeters? What kind of technology is it? If they really sound as good as claimed by many, why did it die out?
Thanks,
Goldy
