Default any good tiny tiny tweeters?

i want to stick a really tiny tweeter to the pole piece of
a Vifa P13, or maybe like the hammer 12? Xo is to be frirst or second order @5 to 7K. Yeah, yeah ,I know i just need to try thisOr maybe stick a pieazo element to the dust cap? I already have the p13s from an old project, doing nothing. I listen Near Field , so I want it concentric.
Anyone know of a good tiny one? maybe i could call it "the tackhammer 5" LOL

You might try the Audax TM010A1. It is the best small tweeter i have heard I used 2 in my car because space is tight and I am very pleased with them. They are about 1 1/8" in diameter and are the perfect shape to mount on a pole piece. You might also try the TM010A39 which is a slightly larger 8 ohm version. You can find both at www.madisound.com

Default Hello John ,

thanks for bringing this to my attention the FR looks really good, and its also shown out of its housing, looks to be maybe a 1/2" the dome is about .4" im going to try this crazy idea Since I HATE XOs the plan is to let the p13 assume its natural smooth roll off. it looks to be -3 @5K and -6@7K. so a paper in oil cap (also left over at 5K would match or a cap and inductor down 6 db@7K, if 6 db dosent cut it off fast enough. I actually listened to the p13 by its self for a few months, but finally the missing high end got to me. This is a very smooth little driver, extremely well behaved and ruler flat from 100 to almost 5K

The P13 was built for maximally flat freq. response.

The little gold Audax TM010A7 is the best of the little Ts. The TM010s are typically used 1st order at 6-7k or so. The ApexJr version also isn;t bad and is probably the cheapest... picture is of one i carved the ears off of.

Check out the closeout Onkyos at Parts Express. Already pole mounted. I used 24 of them in a pair of line arrays, very flat from 6kHz to 20 kHz. You can afford a few of them at $0.37 each.

I would prefer the Vifa PL27TG-35-06, if it comes to that point. Try to have a look on the data sheet...

Parts Express #264-527

Greetings, B.
