Tweeters can be narrowed down a bit because there aren't so many of them. B and C DE35's would be a good choice. I use them and supply them to Forum members along side Matrix Amps to drive them. I use the XT800 to drive tweeters. although the amp drives 8 per box. I don't have much experience with much else at this moment in time.

Peace and goodwill to all speaker builders

thanks for replying
to be honest i'm still quite confused and i realise that i dont know anything reagrding electronics
i knew the range of power output that i wanted to reach so i mounted 1000w drivers but i' not getting how to amp the hi freq and why they are so low in watt
i admit my ignorance but please tell me how can you amp a 50w tweeter with a 800w amp?? :unsure: :unsure: :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:
many thanks

Well for a start, it's not 800 watts unless you are going to bridge the amp. It's only 400 watts per channel at 4 ohms, and 250 watts at 8 ohms but one question, do you intend to run a tweeter on it's own actively or will it be tied in with compression driver via a cap or high pass filter?
