Many tweeter diaphragms are made with this, but when it comes to the actual acoustics, is it more of a metallic "shrill" type of sound, or a fabric/textile "warm" type of sound? Thanks.

mylar is plastic, so think of polymide tweeters. They generally sound like ass. Silk and metal would be a better choice.


Although Audiofrog uses a polyester tweeter which sounds pretty damn good. But maybe that is more of a fabric/silk dome:confused:

so there are no hard and fast rules i guess.

Like mini said mylar is plastic and in the case of tweeters it’s often a plastic disc with a smaller inner dome and out reversed ring. I see mylar tweeters in very low budget drivers and coaxial speakers.

Planning for my next car, will be a low budget system, albeit with a P99RS! I need shallow midbass speakers and have had good luck with previous Pioneer components, but they had soft dome tweeters
