You ref a planar type tweeter............
 - How were you thinking of using it  ?


Hi Bbe22, im still busy with the huge cabnets project that I posted about a while ago, the baffle has a cutout of 170 x 85mm

Was thinking these might work beter than putting a horn type tweeter ?

..........have you sorted out the potential leakage from the baffle of your cab others mentioned ?

So depending on what goes in for the mid / midbass....................
           Nah.......... these have a poor top end off axis , and don't like crossing over lower than about 3500 Hz , so really not all that easy to work with

Of the 3  I mention the best 2 would be the larger BESTON and the HiVi RT1.3 but then just as a tweeter

These cabs are solid and sealed. Wont have leakage problems.

Nice..................... those should get up to 3.5K    :)   then I would suggest go for the Beston if the sizing  / measurements are a match.
No local supplier though
The price on them is good and they are light so postage will be minimal,  ask Scott (or do Aramex Global) to bring in for you
