Default Using Ribbon tweeters in the car

So you've heard someone mention ribbon tweeters, how amazing they are, and now you want to get the inside scoop. You may have also heard people say how fragile and difficult they are to use in cars. Well, now's the time to separate fact from fiction and learn what issues you need to know about when using ribbon tweeters in your car.

First off, what is a ribbon tweeter and how are they different from regular tweeters? Here's a look at an Aurum Cantus g3si ribbon tweeter:



Imagine your regular old dome tweeter and voice coil. With a ribbon tweeter, there is no separate dome and voice coil. The aluminum ribbon element acts as both the radiating element (the dome) and the voice coil together. Also, the ribbon element is much thinner, lighter, and faster to respond than your typical coupled voice coil and dome tweeter.

So what are the advantages of a ribbon over a regular dome?

- High sensitivity and superb dynamics. Less than a few watts will typically yield very high spl levels. Also, above a certain frequency usually 10khz or so, a ribbon acts as a line source meaning that for every doubling of distance, you lose only -3db rather than -6db like you would with conventional point source drivers. The longer the ribbon, the lower the frequency.

- Greatly improved horizontal off-axis response resulting in excellent high frequency detail retrieval, a more open and "airy" sound, and a wider/deeper soundstage.

- Very fast decay times, which give you a smooth, uncolored, and grain free sound. The worst example of this here is your typical metal dome tweeter, which can be extraordinarily detailed but sound harsh and "metallic".

- A limited vertical dispersion. Simply put, the sound present above and below the tweeter is greatly reduced in comparison to the sound radiating directly in front, and to the sides of the tweeter. This is an advantage because it reduces in-car reflections from the floor and the underside of the dash when mounted in kickpanels.

- In the case of Aurum Cantus tweeters, replacing/reconing the ribbon is extremely cheap and easy, usually costing you only a few minutes of time and about $5-$10 USD.

Disadvantages:

- Limited vertical dispersion. While this can be an advantage, it can also be a disadvantage. The tweeter must be aimed directly at the listening position, otherwise the spl will drop off. Can be a pain to work with if there are 2 people of different height sitting in the car.

- Fragile ribbon element. Yes the ribbons are very fragile. You do not want to blow directly on them, and they require steep crossovers usually 18db (3rd order) or above to protect them from overexcursion. It is also absolutely recommended that you place a capacitor inline with the tweeter to prevent them from being damaged by turn on/off noises etc.

- Size. These suckers are pretty big and deep.

A pic of an Aurum Cantus g3 ribbon with a protective cap inline:



A pic of an Aurum Cantus g3 ribbon installed in the kickpanels of a 94 Honda Accord:



Unequalized frequency response of a g3 ribbon (red and green lines) mounted in the kickpanels. Measurement taken at the driver's headrest. Note the steep rolloff at 1.5khz, and the flat extended response out to 20khz!



Compare the high end response to the Morel mdt-43... a conventional tweeter known for having excellent high end dispersion. This tweeter was heavily equalized to boost it's upper end frequency response. It still doesn't quite make it to 20khz



Some tips for using ribbons in cars

- Kickpanel mounting is generally best because these guys are big!

- 1-5 watts is plenty of power, and will easily play at painful listening levels.

- Always use an inline capacitor to protect the ribbon. A Solen 27uF poly cap works fine.

- Make sure to vertically aim the tweeter at your head level.

- Use a steep 18db (3rd order) or higher highpass crossover.

- Loud bass or slamming doors will not damage the tweeter. Stepping on the tweeter will not damage it either, since the ribbon sits behind a strong protective grille. I've personally recorded spl levels > 135db in car without any damage to the ribbon element, and after nearly a year of constant use with people stepping on the driver, kicking it, and slamming my doors hard the ribbon is still in pristine condition.

So who makes ribbon tweeters? Check out these links for more info:

http://www.aurumcantus.com/
http://www.fountek.net/

Fountek ribbons are generally cheaper and offer similar performance to the Aurum Cantus units, but are considerably more expensive to fix and utilize plastic bodies instead of solid aluminum.

There is also another category of tweeters called "planar tweeters". You can think of them as close cousins to ribbon tweeters. The most noteable difference is that the planar is not a pure aluminum element as with a "true" ribbon, it's in fact usually a plastic or similar sheet with aluminum embedded in it. It's also attached to the frame on all sides, whereas a ribbon is only attached at the top and the bottom. Personally, I have yet to hear a planar driver that can match the performance of a "true" ribbon tweeter.

Just wanted to update this post with a new type of ribbon design by LCY. My experience with this driver is that it uses a shorter ribbon than usual, stacked side by side and a horn loaded faceplate. What this does is radically increase the vertical dispersion of the ribbon, giving a more spacious soundstage with a wider sweetspot. These ribbons are also a tad bit smoother sounding than any other ribbon I've used from AC, Fountek, to Raven.

Compare the vertical response from your typical 12cm ribbon to that of the LCY-130. (These pictures taken from www.lcy.com.hk and are copyright of LCY)

Do you think that the upper door area would be too windy if I drive with the windows down? Like about 4" down from the windowsill, and all the way forward in the door, flush mounted in the doorpanel.

I'd say probably not... it's really only if air is blowing directly on the ribbon that you have a problem... but again I've never done it myself so I wouldn't know 100%

npdang,

quick question(s):

What vaule cap are you using for the "protective cap"?

So i dont have to search/calculate (:P):

Where does it start cutting frequency (xxxxhz @ -6db/oct)?

One More:

What slope are you using from your active xover (without protective cap / passive xover)?

27uf... I think it's around 1khz or 1.5khz.

Active xover depends on your setup.... I think my left tweet is 12db butterworth at 2khz electrical, and 1st order at 2.4khz on the right tweet. Both of them are 4th order acoustic... whatever it takes to sum flat with the mid.

Hey, I'm new here, got a ?

You say 1-5 watts is plenty, what kind of amp would you rec?

It looks like the Tru C-7.2AT would be a good match, but how about something more affordable?

hey cheapboy,

is your passenger side ribbon mounted exactly like the driver's side ribbon?

what do you think of the dayton metal 7" as a possible driver to use with the cantus g3's?

thanks

Hi robert crumbley,

I'm not cheapboy, but I'll answer it since I think Npdang has been pretty busy the last few days.

He told me that the passenger's ribbon is aimed 30 degrees to the listener (driver). He saids this is the way it's setup in home audio. And by doing so, the drivers' imaging is perfectly centered.

So in short, the answer is NO, his passenger ribbon is NOT aimed like the ones on the driver side.

Hey everybody,

first off, i just want to say this is an awsome site. I have a quick question about ribbons tweeters. NPdang mention above that @ 135db it did not damage the ribbon but what about spl above 135...let's say up to 150db, will that effect or damage the ribbon? I'm asking this is because I will be getting a pair soon and I also compete for SPL so I want to know should I remove the ribbon tweeter everytime I compete?

I can't promise anything, but I would think that it's fine. In the worse case, reconing damaged ribbons is extremely easy and cheap ~$10-$20 for most brands.

ITS OFFICIAL

Ribbons tweeters will withstand 150.6 dB's of subwoofer sound pressure.

My team member Shaun Ly hit 150.6 dB's in his Civic coupe at the SLAP competition this Sunday (5/22/05) in Chula Vista, CA. the LCY ribbons tweeters were still installed in kickpods because we didnt have time to take them out.. after an inspection after multiple burps, we found the ribbon tweeters to be perfectly fine! 8)

i should have pictures if Shaun would email them to me?!?!?!?
(will be updated soon)

here we go:

picture isnt too great because of the LED display, but it says "150.6" - it was acatually a video but i dont think he wants to post up the whole video....

okay ribbon folks

I have a daily driver with two passengers (me and wifey )

so I cant really aim both ribbons at the drivers head

so I was thinking aim the ribbon at each person (assuming the same ear height)

and then use TA when Im in the car by myself


will this work or should I stick with my seas reference domes on the dash??

bored as usual and want to try this ribbon kick



and also whats the difference SQ wise from the LCY

130 (large round face)

2.0khz-60khz
92db/w/m - 8Ω
150w (3rd. order 2.0khz)


110 (small round face)

2.2khz-60khz
92db/w/m - 8Ω
150w (3rd. order 2.2khz)

and the one thats looking reall attractive to me since I can mount it easier

108 (small sqaure face)

2.2khz-60khz
92db/w/m - 8Ω
150w (3rd. order 2.2khz)

and also anyone have any dimesions on these LCY's?? I cant find them anywhere

Specs at www.lcy.com.hk

They're also all the same ribbon driver, with different faceplates. 108 = 108mm square, 110 = 110mm round, 130 = 130mm round.

Ribbons have exceptionally wide horizontal dispersion, so feel free to aim them horizontally wherever you need to.

I'm not sure about your wife... But most people I know, (who are not into car audio) won't really noticed the difference. So I'd say, build the kicks aimed both at the driver. So that YOU get perfect imaging. your wife may not even notice anything missing!

yup, i personally wouldnt necessary aim both of them directly on axis. im aiming them between the listeners, so theyre both equally off-axis to both listeners.

thx man appreciate it

so basically the larger face area has no effect on the range of the sound dispersion horizontally or vertically?

and I like the idea of aiming them center that seems like a cool idea

Default Re: Using Ribbon tweeters in the car

I think I just damaged my dayton planar tweets, they sound mediocre at best now no sparkle to them whatsoever. I'm thinking it was the turn on/off pops.
Edit: got even worse in the past 24 hours. I just ordered a new set and some solen caps. Hopefully it will do.

Just noticed my previous post. I lied lol. they were not damaged. as a matter of fact neither the Bg Neo 8 nor the dayton planar designs needed an inline filter for my application.

The question I have is whether I can mount the LCY 110s in the actual door. Will it ruin the element if the door is slammed? Do I have to hang them from the pillar?

Default Re: Using Ribbon tweeters in the car

I'd like to know if it would be wise to run a set of tweeters along with the ribbons in a car i.e. ribbons in the kick as the main tweeter and the regular domes in the a pillars crossed at like 8 or 10k to raise the soundstage. Sound like a good idea? Or no?
