Default test planar magnetic tweeter 9 12 or 25 micron alu ?

well i did a small test. thick alu foil or thin?

conclusion for me is the , the less they go towards line source the thicker the foil. to compensate for increasing top end.

here the video

YouTube

And here is the heaviest foil playing music in my mini monitors. i must say that 4Khz distortion peak that i did not fix here is rathert anoying combined with the 8 Khz peak of my audio recorder, well anyhow fun song

I think I'll have a go at the wire versions, actually

Oh, and I dig that version of I Will Survive, thanks for the introduction to the artist.

@Wrinex,

Thanks for sharing the results of your foil thickness tests.
Glad to see you are still experimenting and trying new things.
I haven't had much free time for hobbies this year.
