How low of Fs are you looking for? The Seas Neo tweeters have an Fs less than 1200, and I believe some ID tweeters had a resonant frequency below 1000Hz.
I forgot to list that. They don't have to be that low, I am just looking to go fully active from my amp so I only need it to go around 4k and up, but i won't disregard anything lower.

I don't care much for that tweet. Seems to be a likem or not thing.
I like it but I just want more options for going fully active, there aren't many options when your trying to cross your tweetsat 8k

lots of tweeters can play at 2.5-3K and up....the FS of the L1V2 is why they have the L1Pro ;) (smart business move IMO)
The L1Pro is also expensive as hell ;)

but there are a lot of inexpensive ring radiators out there ;)
You bring up an interesting point. Up until now I have been pretty set on a soft dome tweeter (should have mentioned that earlier). In your opinion what are the different characteristics of the two?

I am also limited on space, the tweeter needs to be able to fit in about a 1" whole. There is also not much room behind the tweeter

nothing that a bench grinder and some handy sanding can't fix ;)





Started out as....

Vifa XT25SC90-04 1" Dual Ring Radiator Tweeter 264-1014
That's puuuuuurrdy, nice work man. Yea I know what your saying but that pic I uploaded was my 3rd attempt at glassing those pillars and I don't want to modify them anymore. I really need to just finish the pillars because I have been driving around with my car a mess for too long. That is why I am trying to find a tweeter that I can just plug in so to speak. I did check out those vifa's but I don't think i can make them work without a lot of work, plus i want to have an option for the L1 Pro in the future *crosses fingers*

I totally agree with you. I am a fan boy of SQ and I don't care how I get there as long as I get there, the issue here is fitment. Most of the DIY tweets i have found are just too big to fit where i want them I am looking on parts-express and madisound but can't find anything that is a good fit. Suggestions are welcome. I mentioned the L1 Pro because i think it would fit perfectly where the L1V2 is currently without any modding and I have heard it before and liked it.

When i had the L1v2 they were crossed at 4k on a 12db slope. Sounded great but it was only temporary as i soon got the L1pro SE. Insane SQ.

Interesting, I heard they sound very bright when they are crossed that low, your opinion on that? How much power were your running to them?

I was thinking about crossing them at 5k just haven't had the time to remove the caps from behind the tweeters.

Any tweeter can sound bright if not installed to suit the car. Mine were in the kicks with 30w each of a Genesis SA30. They weren't bright but very in your face and lifelike.

What cap/crossover are you using. 6db oct cap wont be enough unless it at around 7-8k.
