Default Human Tweeters?

I saw the Human tweeter recommended amongst the best. I found this company when researching for replacement drivers for EPI and Genesis speakers.

This upgraded design uses aluminum dome. Any one try these out?

It has a dip that would require a super tweeter OR a lot of eq. in the crossover:

Mark K (the guy that tested these) thinks the best tweeter currently available near the price range of the Human tweeter is:

interesting data -- i always liked the (2nd generation EPI) paper cone tweeter... i'm not a big fan of metal domes in general, if those FR plots are applicable to a larger set, i can cross the new ones off the list.

I have the EPI 1" inverted dome "air-spring" tweeter that is hard plastic, don't recall a paper cone model.

Is there any data on that one?

I'm tempted to try the Seas 25mm textile tweeters.

One of the best tweeters I have ever heard is Seas "Excel" T25001.

I am useing it I my speakers , and it is perfect match of transparency (a lot of air) , musicality and neutrality javascript:smilie('')

I guess this is the ugliest tweeter I have ever seen!

To put a tweeter like that in my system, it MUST sound incredible...

Was that tweeter designed by Winston Burhoe? Except for the dome, it looks identical to the Energy 22 tweeter which was a Burhoe design. I like the sound of the Energy 22 tweeter a lot, but it has a +4dB spike at 4.5K. Possibly because it's a flared dome.

EPI was founded in 1970 by Winslow Burhoe. They are all adoptations of the original design.

has anyone measured their most popular tweeter? It boasted linearity, low distortion, wide bandwidth for its time.
