Wow! I wonder if it's true.
What do you think about the old "phenolic rings"?

You wonder if a 96 dB spec for a 3 dollar cone tweeter is true?
That tweeter on Chokes Unlimited is the same Erik mentioned.
If there is anywhere decent enough cone tweeter then from Visaton.
Not what you're looking for but it is what it is. One question though.
How do you know that you need exactly 94 dB tweeter for your
high sensitivity project? What are the other drivers?

If this is the speaker you are using for your project then
it looks like other vintage speaker units with high Qts
and I seriously doubt that it will have a sensitivity in a box
and with a XO filter
anywhere near 94 dB/2,83V. If you get
it to be 88-90 dB you will be very lucky. Modern high quality
12" PA drivers with powerful motors may hit 94 dB/2,83V.
