Many audiophiles praise the ribbon tweeter's excellent clarity, transparency, and imaging. The key to this remarkable performance is the almost weightless ribbon element: a Kapton film membrane etched with a pattern of aluminum conductors and placed precisely between two rows of neodymium magnets. The result is an immediate response to any transient impulse found in the original signal. The PT2's ability to deliver musical detail is clearly amazing.

The tweeter's large membrane and radiating area provide higher power handling and a substantially lower cut off frequency. This membrane is thermally attached to a cast aluminum plate that facilitates cooling and dramatically increases dynamic range. The flared waveguide's wide horizontal dispersion projects an excellent off axis response. At the same time, vertical dispersion is limited, which reduces distracting floor and ceiling reflections. Perfect for line array applications. The recommended second order crossover cut-off frequency is 3 kHz or higher, although the crossover point can be lowered to 2,500 Hz if a 3rd order crossover is used.


• Superb resolution and detail for the most discerning audiophile
• Wide horizontal and narrow vertical dispersion patterns
• Perfect for use in line arrays
• 3 kHz recommended crossover frequency at 12 dB per octave

Ribbon tweeter adds zing

I have wired these PT2C-8 to the matching 3kHz crossover which is connected in parallel to some entry level Martin Logan electrostatics, which could be 20y old now, and which have lost their sparkle at the same rate my hearing of HF has tapered off! Younger ears say the result is too bright, which could be true, so I will be getting a resistor in line. The units are well made and came well packaged. Good value.

Fantastic Tweeter

These are really great, so detailed in fact that they border onto studio reference quality. As they are so revealing, pairing them up with high quality mid-range drivers would be recommended.
