  • "Good for PA; for hifi, not so much" by dwayne.newton1 on 11/30/2012
    Overall: 3.5 out of 5

    This has a smooth, clean sound with a response curve that offers a nice midrange boost. It's a good alternative to piezo tweeters in lower powered setups because it can be matched to a wide range of drivers without the need for a pad to be introduced into the driver's circuit. But don't expect it to have the sound of a typical mylar dome tweeter since the horn loading gives it a little bit of that ol' tin can sound. So it's not wonderful for use in a hifi setup but it works just fine if you want to reach an audience.

    The design is good the execution is horrible.Until China implements some quality control stay clear of these products.The drivers are mounted so far off center I couldn't believe it.Junk is Junk.
