Smile High power tweeter

Dear All
I am searching for suppliers of very powerful tweeters for an industry project I am involved in.
The tweeter must be spherical shaped and produce high sound at about 15 kHz.
Can anyone give me a guide?

Thanks

A guide ?
Maybe a waveguide !!
Or better ...a horn !! As you didn't specify which size , it could be a 20 cm diameter sphere .
Housing a pro compression driver from ...let's see : B&C , BMS , and others .

Sorry, I did not specify.
I am searching for a horn tweeter driver with highest possible sensitivity and output. The driver shall be mounted in a conical horn design.
Thanx

Is sound quality an issue? What is the budget?

Hi Cal
No sound quality is not an issue. The driver will not produce music, only one tone.
I can accept a higher price than a mainstream driver.
Thanx

The bigger the horn, the more sensitive it will be. What is the maximum size horn?

This Selenium might fit the bill

Selenium D3501Ti-Nd 2" Titanium Neo Horn Driver 4-Bolt 8 Ohm

Now let's find a 2" horn with a 4 bolt pattern after you answer how large it can be.

Never mind, I just reread your first post. Just make sure your horn is a standard 4 bolt pattern if you pick that driver.

Thank you Cal.

Sorry for my late reply. I was out kayaking in a Norwegian fjord late evening local time.

It looks promising.
Do you know who deliver such drivers at the best price?
Do you know of manufacturer and suppliers of conical horns?
Thanks again.

This one here but it's not very big. I wonder if someone else knows? Does it have to be conical? You can them bigger with a narrow pattern and higher sensitivity that way.
