I don’t have to tell you this new procedure is a P-A-I-N. The low cost FT17H is ideal for use as a rear mounted super tweeter. I have to say that if anything, these tweeters are under-hyped. You see, the Hammer Dynamics main 12″ driver has a sensitivity of 97dB while this Audax is only 94dB. Right out of the box, they look good. Since this Fostex has output up till 50kHz, there should be I haven’t heard much mention of how pretty they sound.

Those guys on the Super 12 Forum is right. Last update 29 April The nominal impedance foste the FT17H horn tweeter is 8 ohms making the horn tweeters easy to drive even with small amplifiers. Ever since my Hammer Dynamics started singing, I have been having lots of fun. I haven’t heard so much treble from my system!

The Fostex, at No, not the sound, but the idea. The FT17H horn tweeter uses a shielded magnet. The overall weight of the FT17H tweeter is g 0. The FT17H offers high cost performance and is fostfx suited for added that ft1h7 little bit of sparkle and air to high sensitivity speaker systems. Will fiddle around until I find a position I like.


Heard that some commercial mosquitoes repellant utilize a 40kHz frequency tone to “shoo-shoo” mosquitoes away.

Ft71h mean, how many parts on earth do you have to keep on buying until you find what you like? Previously, all it takes is a couple of e-mail messages and the fr17h will be on your way, but nowadays, they requested me to fax a copy of my ID AND my credit card. Haven’t done much on it, but swapping the only electrolytic in the crossover with a better cap yielded even better sound!

A gasket comes affixed to the tweeter housing.

The horn super tweeter offers a crisp high frequency response that extends out well past the audible range.

I hear a wider, more open soundstage.

However, they are too big to be mounted on the current tweeter position. But it’s very clear, and very extended I don’t have to say this right?

Seems that mosquitoes can’t stand this frequency probably some pets too. Provided that a crossover point in-excess of about 10 kHz is used, the performance is very good.

Still can’t hear much depth, but I reckon it’s more of a “room” problem. If you haven’t been on this planet lately, a search on Ebay will show you that speaker drivers with alnico magnets command a stratospheric price over their non-alnico cousins. Included with the horn tweeter are mounting screws and a datasheet. Noting that I hate sizzle or exaggerated treble. Fostes 12 Forum guys recommend “padding” the tweeter with a 1 ohm series resistor and 65 ohm shunt resistor.


Furthermore, if the fax gets to “somewhere else”, I’d be more worried about being a victim of credit fraud than anything else! This explains the VERY relaxed treble.

Every unit even has frequency response chart, specifications, mounting dimensions and configuration example. Upgrading every component in the crossover doesn’t sound good to me. The Fr17h FT17H is an economical horn super tweeter with a frequency response that extends out to 50 kHz. Another e-mail on the Forum recommended a single 0.

I get too conscious of the treble!

I was suprised to find it quite heavy, g 0. The build quality of the Fostex FT17H horn tweeter is good for the price range. We have had good results with this tweeter using a first-order crossover in the 10 to 15 kHz range. Other than the “air” factor, it also seems to have more “body” and “feel” to it. Fostdx Fostex FT17H horn tweeters came neatly packaged in a small cardboard boxes. Err, wish to add another point. You can use and L-Pad attenuator to match the tweeter level to your speakers.

Instruments have more “air” around them. Reason being, too many credit card frauds. Finally cymbals and hi-hats have more “body”. Vocals are impressive too.

Hey, you idiots reading this, stop spoiling our reputation! DAC in use now, is the non-oversampling variety, thus, there should be a What do I have?
