I have wanted to experiment with an AMT tweeter in my car setup for awhile now. I have heard home setups with AMT's and was blown away...so I was always curious how they perform in a car environment.
Im a big research freak, especially within manufacturing environments and have ran across a company that makes AMT tweeters for about 80% of the companies out there (rebadged, repackaged,).
So I went straight to the source and ordered from them, after some back door emails with sales reps, this is what arrived in my mail box yesterday.
The housing is extruded aluminum with a nice textured finish on the front bezel. Dark silver almost grey in color (anodized). The back plate is glued in place, I wanted to pop them open to see inside but I don't see any real reason so I will leave them be.
A set of caps came with the set.
The spec sheet on the box gives an impedance of 3.6 ohms
and sensitivity of 89db.
I know AMT's are VERY directional, my current setup with my Phoenix Gold Elite tweeters are very much on axis, so this will be my starting point with these.
I want to do placement auditions to see what happens when placed in different locations in the car.
That's all I got for today, this experiment and the results will take awhile-
I just had major surgery to my nose 2 days ago and Im laid up in bed a total wreck! So be patient... lol
I hope to get them installed in the car over the next 2-3 days.
