Fountek, Neo CD3.0M-Blk Ribbon Tweeter
One of the more reasonably priced ribbon tweeters, these are best used in 3-ways systems in our opinion. Distortion seems to rise below 3KHz. We have seen two way designs using this tweeter, but wouldn’t recommend it.
The most popular use of this ribbon is with the “Statements” series of kits by Curt Campbell and Jim Holtz.
The full model number for this true ribbon tweeter is NeoCd3.0M-Blk. The “M” means metal. Some years ago they were shipped with plastic faceplates, but now we import only the Metal.
One word of caution – ribbon tweeters appear as a dead short to the amplifier without the crossover. Always use a capacitor in series while testing or with an active crossover.
