Default tweeters

The speakers I am using are MB quart Q SD216
the front stage uses 2 soundstream amps with a Arcaudio
mx1 xover. the tweets are driven with a soundstream Class A 3.0 amp and the tweets are in the lower front corners off the doors. this spot is optimal for imaging.

the OEM xover point on the passive xover is 2.4khz
I am finding as you move the point up from that you loose some presence and vocal quality. I have been trying to tune this sytem for 3 weeks. ( I like the B@W S in the car idea I now i will gut the speaker ,take the tweeter................

Thank you jeff

you no doubt are hearing the side effects of a hi-Q resonance... i'd try a coat of puzzlecoat on the back side of the dome. I've had good resulta taming the ringing on aluminum cone drivers.

My experience with MB Quart tweets is the same. For me those tweets always seems edgy with female voices. The detail is very good and presentation is very airy.

Default try toiletpaper

Try to cover the tweeter with toiletpaper!
Try some different brands,some say that recycled have a sweeter sound in the upper regions,but my personal preference is cleenex (peach scented).Since this is for a car you might also consider hanging wonderbaums dangeling in front of the tweeter to randomly diffuse the harshness.
This migth not improve the actual sound but it will maybe smell better inside the car.

Good luck !
thanks for reading.
