I have some specs somewhere...
They're about 105 dB with 1 watt at 1 m. They CAN cross as low as 2500 Hz (12 dB/octave), but keep the level down! I crossed mine at 5000 Hz (18 dB/octave), so I can crank it a little more. E-V also made a tweeter protector circuit specifically for these tweeters.
Great sounding, crisp tweeters.
I am designing some studio quality PA speakers for my kids band dedicated to vocals only. At 225 watts per channel, I guess if crossed at 3K, the T-350 would be ruined?
I toasted lots of them babies.
I'd go with some selenium compression types..I have 6 D205TI's feeding a 6 by 6 biradial horn, 3rd order xover at 5Khz. My son toasted a pair of these, and a friend also did, but I've had good luck as long as I'm runnin the rig.
One on a 280wrms channel is ok if you know what you are doing, but for a kids band, I'd double up.
I know the 205's are no longer in production, but there are similar ones avail, try PE..
I think the eminence td2002's are also possible, get 16 ohmers, and double up.
Buy spare voice coils, at least 4. Just in case.
