Opinions on the Monacor DT-300 tweeter & Waveguide

Has anyone here ever heard the Monacor DT-300 tweeter used along with it's waveguide? If so what are your opinions of this setup? It seems quite reasonably priced also.

I've heard that waveguides offer numerous advantages, and I thought that trying the DT-300 along with it's waveguide attachment would be a good way to go.

The plan is to replace the existing tweeters in my 2-way bookshelf speakers, it may be a little tricky as the waveguide is quite a bit larger but I'm sure I can get around this issue somehow.

I'm hoping to crossover at 1.8KHz with a 48db/oct LR filter as I'm using an active XO. Would this be too low as the official spec sheet says that you can crossover at 2KHz when using a 12db/octave slope.
 
Very good tweeter for is price. I have used it in a two way with a 10" [email protected] with a single cap.
In an active system you should equalize it a lot
I'm guessing that that is an active system also? If so was the tweeter for DC protection or was it also acting as a filter?

1500Hz is a nice crossover point though, I'm hoping to use some 8" woofers and it would be good to crossover as low as possible really. :)
Troel Gravesen hase made a coupple of designs using it. have a look here for more details.

kind regards

Thanks, it does seem like the waveguide really does add a significant boost in efficiency but I think with some good EQ it could be made to sound good.

I only know the dt-300 with-out wave-guide pleasant sounding tweeter.
