Anyway...

In my quest to build a great sounding 3-way front stage I am narrowing down my choices for a small format tweeter and 4" total diameter mid to mate with my Extremis midbass. Npdang has recommended the LPG silk tweets and the Aura NS3. While these are great choices, I happened across Audio Development drivers. Does anyone have any experience with these? They look pricey especially their gorgous looking MM series. Just wanted to know how these might sound with 100Wx4 going to them.

I still have a pair of Audio Development CX6s (I believe). They were 6.5" coaxials with outboard crossovers. They were pretty nice, but I don't know how good they really sounded, nor how good the install was, because I was very much a noob to car audio last time I had a chance to hear them.

They may be going in my brothers car shortly, though.

Yeah, those specs jumped out at me too. Someone mentioned over at EAC that they were a dealer of different high line companies and mentioned AD.

Are you on your second set because of them blown or just another set? I would love to hear a second opinion on those Aura NS3's. Please start another thread with your opinions!

Just FYI, AD is the speaker line of Sinfoni amps. Most Sinfoni dealers can get the AD drivers. I believe there is a link to the us version of the page on the us sinfoni page.

My brief experience with their mm tweeter... it was all show and no go. They could be decent stuff, but the price is pretty high. I stick to the cheap, and well proven drivers rather than risk my money :)

I wonder if AD’s drivers are OEM’ed by the Italian firm ATD. For the EU hobbyist market make the Veravox drivers for Cantare and do a few drivers for Expolinear under their own name. For the US market they made the Zellaton that Andre Perrault (e-speakers.com) used to sell.

ATD makes (made?) a small spiral planar tweeter (used commercially by Genesis) that I’m very fond of. They bought the design from Philips. However, I’ve never seen a compact neo version of it. If this tweet is that version, I want a pair for my NS3 nearfield towers! Anyone have any idea on the price of these things?
