Specifications Top

Very commonly used tweeter in musical instrument, sound reinforcement and DJ speaker systems, it is also popular for use in carpeted automotive speaker boxes. Piezoelectric design offers excellent transient response, high efficiency and very high immunity to burnout. Very high impedance at low frequencies eliminates the need for a crossover, making this a very inexpensive and reliable tweeter to incorporate into any speaker system. It is perfect for direct incorporation into multi tweeter arrangements.

      Basic tweeter, you can do better

      Overall: 2 out of 5

      I bought this tweeter to replace a 20 year old Realistic piezo horn tweeter. I was severely disappointed by the sound. The Realistic tweeter made this tweeter sound dull in comparison. With these new tweeters, I cannot hear a crisp symbol. They just don't have the definition I was looking for. You can do better by spending a little more and upgrading.

      Piezo Horn Tweeter

      Overall: 3.5 out of 5

      As soon as I removed this tweeter from the flimsy cardboard box, I noticed that there was a crack at one of the corners of the mounting flange. This was not surprising as the flange itself is not all that thick and could easily be damaged. Now I realize that this was probably not the fault of MCM but it may be worth bearing in mind to perhaps check this particular item before shipping it out. It only would take a second or two to open the box, remove the tweeter and replace it. Well, instead of contacting MCM, I decided to repair it by using superglue, which was an extremely easy task. In my opinion, due to it's very low cost and the fact that it did not affect performance, it was not worth sending it back for an exchange item. It does what it's meant to do and does it very cheaply!

      I had 2 blown horns in some old Peavey monitors, this was the same horn, now the monitors work great!
