Default Does anyone know of a good paper tweeter?

I was wondering why there aren't more paper woofer + paper tweeter designs around. I heard such design not too long ago with cheap no name drivers in a real wood box and it surprized the hell out of me.
Also I read somewhere that in Japan, most audiophiles only listen to paper because they know it sounds the best. Hmmm.. I wonder if they're full of crap or not.
I was thinking something like the SS 8531 with a paper tweeter like a 2" TB or the Davis graphite one.

Does anyone know of one?

partsexpress has the goldwood 4" gt-25 for cheap. They have the matching midrange driver as well. I have some bookshelf speakers with paper tweeters in my kitchen that I listen too more than anything else. They sound nice.

Default paper tweeter

the peerless looks good! BUT if u need to cross lower then use the fostexFE87E. Its 200Hz to 30K!! =+/-~3Db. if you dont count a small narrow dip at 2.5K then its +/- 2 and yes it sounds like it goes out forever its a great little speaker only 27.50 at MAD

According to the Fostex web site, the FE87 is discontinued.

That's quite cheap: )

The FE87 has been replaced with the FE87E.

Hang on ,paper is good i agree, i have paper cones but i can not discount the new materials as not all of the applications are equal.
There are so many grades of Kevlar and aluminium and so on, finding one that sounds good is just as hard as doping a paper cone with the right mixture or pressing the paper cone with the right force.

I dont use paper in my subwoofers as it does not fair well in harsh environments.

B&W do not use paper cones in there flag ship speakers, its all aluminium and magnesium.

Thats progress
