Tweeter Quest
 
Dear All,

I heard a really good ribbon tweeter over the weekend. Its spurred me on with an idea I have had for some time - namely replacing the vifa tweeter in my pmc mb2-xbd-a with something of the standard of the rest of the drivers. What ribbon units would people recommend as being the best around? In addition what are the pros and cons of ribbon v. electrostatic. What are the best electrostatic tweeters currently?

Regards,

Nick.

Have heard and enjoyed Raven and Beengineering ribbon tweeters. Highly recommended.

Thanks - already had the raven recommended, the raal looks pretty interesting though. Do you have a link for the other unit?

Thanks!

Nick

I'd avoid ribbons personally but this one sounded pretty superb to me in a pair of AC Harmony floorstanders.
