Default Re: Using Ribbon tweeters in the car

Looking for a tweeter to cover from about 9k and up. Like the fact everyone saus these are nice and lively, plus take very little to get loud. They would be matched up with a pr of Varetis horns and midbass's. Would anyone suggest this?

Wow, very nice! I used to have my ribbons on the dash when I first experimented with ribbons. Here is a few problems I stumbled over, some of which you perfectly accounted for.

Horizontal dispersion led to some harsh reflections when the windows were up. It seems that you were aware of this since you treated both left and right panels for the LCY.

You managed to mount them away from the windshield to leave your view unobstructed, that is incredible too.

The left one was always too 'hot' as it was rather close but yours seem to be mounted a fair distance. So far so good, the best attempt I've seen at running ribbons high above.

However, I'm not to keen on the two seat listener goal. In my experience if you go over 15 degrees of axis vertically the FR starts dropping. I have one ribbon rolling off at 18khz from a minor mounting angle difference. If you want to get them flat to at least 18khz in that position you will probably need very heavy eqing. You will narrow the sweetspot quite a bit if you go with anything other than on axis for one driver seating. Two driver will be even more wild.

How much reflection benefit do you get and where, how large is the sweet spot for both listeners and how desirable are these reflections to begin with?

Ohh and you should know the nickel plating on the magnet slugs will deteriorate very rapidly in direct sunlight. I suspect the magnet force will too so the sensitivity will drop.

Default Re: Using Ribbon tweeters in the car

There is some more work to do, but the window is acting (as was designed) like the mouth of a waveguide, aiding the sound instead of interfering. The baffle will need to be modified to further increase this effect though.

I am getting an off-axis FR, within detectable limits, the same as on-axis. I haven't yet tested it with a mic, and my hearing starts to fall quickly past 18k, but honestly, the sweet spot is extremely wide, with a really nice horizontal dispersion. Again, I'm going to add a bit more horizontal angle to eliminate some of the combing I'm getting that high up, but its certainly not a large issue. Reflections are minimal, and with a dashmat, easily treatable.

Also, dont forget I'm an aussie, and hence right-hand side driving (none of this wrong-side of the road/car issues).

The pictures dont show it, but you cant see the ribbons at all from the listening position. I actually lifted the camera to get those shots off. The entire spectrum of sound from them is off-axis.

As to the magnet slugs, well the ribbons arent in direct sunlight. They are tucked away nicely behind the baffles, plus the way the units are mounted in the dash, its really not in that bad a position. Further up the dash and it would be another story though.

Its all about the music. Always has been, always will be. Im here for the music.

I'm really impressed. If I wasn't continents away I'd love to have a listen. It's funny how we drive on opposite sides, and I totally forgot. I wonder if we lost hearing more in one ear and it's opposite. That's a very neat install, I don't see many folks attempting waveguides.

mehh...anything without background noise or hiss. I've heard tube amps before but I couldn't pick up a signature sound or anything, maybe I have to use it in a controlled test.

npdang was selling all of the LCY Ribbon tweeters with 27uf (27 micro-farad) Solen Fast caps, which were about $9 each at the time. One capacitor per tweeter of course.

Do the ribbons need an enclosure? I just received my Hustler audio Mystique ribbon and all I received was a dash mount to have them facing the passenger, but then the whole driver would remain exposed.

Default Re: Using Ribbon tweeters in the car

A question pops in my head...

Ribbon tweeters have a very good horizontal off-axis respons, but a terrible vertical off-axis respons, right?

So this means, even if both tweeters are aimed at the driver, the passenger gets almost the same nice sound as the driver, if the passengers head is at the same height, but if you sit higher or lower in the Car (or a judge who has a longer/shorter body than me sits in the car), the top-end response reduces very fast.

Now, I don't give a f*ck about passengers but sometimes I'd like to sit low in my car, sometimes I'd like to sit higher, so if I want the best sound undepending if I sit higher or lower, I need a high vertical range of good detailed sound, right?

Unless somebody without legs or somebody who has much longer legs than me, the seat won't be moved back/forth so extreme that the horizontal angle of the axis changes thŠt much to reduce the top-end very much, so I don't need thŠt much of a horizontal dispertion, right?

If the answer on the 3 "right?"s is 'yes indeed', then why not mount ribbon tweeters horizontally (turned 90į) instead of 'normal' if the install is a 1-seat-install?

Edit: and an additional question: what if you mount 2 ribbon tweeters per side, next/on top of eachother, 1 mounted normal, 1 turned 90į, wouldn't that give a nice horizontal *and* vertical dispertion?

greetz,
Isabelle

Default Re: Using Ribbon tweeters in the car

When Zaph did his test of the "non dome tweeters" he said that most all ribbon/planar style tweeters have similar off axis response as a 1" dome, where they lack is off axis vertical response. That's probably a big deal for home audio users, but in Car I don't see it being an issue.

I do find that my Neo3s do have a slightly narrower listening angle than my previous LPGs did, but again once aimed properly unless you're leaning forward for a long time, it isn't a problem at all.

Xenia has a pair of Fountek ribbon tweeters for her van and she'll use an Xtant amp on them. I don't see why a tube amplifier would be necessary. A good, low THD, high SNR amplifier is just fine.
Low THD and high SNR is always important on tweeters, but since ribbons give even more detail than most dome tweeters, it's even more important...

Default Re: Using Ribbon tweeters in the car

I have a 6x9 Speaker hole on my front doors
and I am going to put 5.25" comps there instead, but am considering putting walmart ribbon tweeters right next to the mids on the door. Is that ribbon tweeter position too off axis and too far?

Or should I us the regular dome tweeters on the door and find a way to mount the ribbons on the dash?

What should I do?

Default Re: Using Ribbon tweeters in the car

For those who have ribbons in their car, do you use it as a 2 way or 3 way set up? So, is it the stand alone tweeter and then say a 6.5 and that is it. Or is it used as a mid? Just curious what some are doing. Thanks for the input!
