#6 . For a 2 way
I am associating with 6 1/2inch mid driver. Most probably peerless HDS 830875 midbass or discovery scanspeak 18W/8434G00-8 . Approx 20L enclosure.

I have good experience with Visaton G20SC tweeter.

It doesnt have a particularly low Fs, but is a good performer, IMO.

I think it may be just one side or the other of your budget. Some SB tweeters may have some performance or value advantages, being more modern drivers.

On the other hand,

I saw these the other day

Monacor RBT-56 Magnetostatic Ribbon Tweeter
£22.05
€24.95

But possibly this isnt useful for a 2 way?

There are several Monacor tweeters, which may fit your budget and look worth consideration (but I have no personal experience with them)

I did a 2 way with the Peerless 830883 (documented here on diyaudio), paired with a Seas 27TBFC/G, which will fit into your definition of budget tweeter. I could also have built the speakers with the TDFC, but found a deal on the metal tweeters. Both are right enough tweeter that can be paired successfully (i.e. crossed low enough) to a 6.5" mid-woofer, and the build quality is good.
Beware of low cost tweeters where the performance is at the expense of consistency.

The ScanSpeak D2608/913000 (Peerless 810921) springs to mind.

Highly recommended by HiFi Compass and Zaph but probably a little bit over budget.
Low moving mass and decent Fs.

Closer to your budget the ScanSpeak R2604/833000, twin magnet version of the already mentioned R2604/832000 with higher efficiency and lower distortion for only a few € more.

Assuming all of what you mentioned is accomplished:
"You still have to make a solid box with rounded edges, and you need a router to do a flush mount. Perfect phase alignment at crossover frequencies and tons of power to digest. Why would you choose for a poor tweeter"
Can anyone name some budget tweeters which are very highly appraised as regards sound quality as I am particularly sensible to real sounding cymbals, hyats and lifelike sound of acoustic guitar being myself a guitarist
With Scanspeak discovery you should have very good speakers for a good price.
If you don't have tools to design the loudspeakers go to a kit, perhaps you want to learn design loudspeakers.
See TroŽls designs :
18W-8434G00
Other design :
Prima - JustDIYIt !

It is a suggestion. I think like others have suggested, SB acoustics has made very good drivers for a very good price.

For good tweeters, the Seas 27TBFC/G is a serious candidate

I can vouch for the high quality to cost ratio of the Monacor tweeters. Available in both dome and ribbon varieties.

Dome
