In Reply to: RE: Would wiring 4 super tweeters per speaker box increase life of tweeters? posted by domic on February 23, 2017 at 19:44:23
Of course 4 tweeters will work fine (if wired series-parallel).
The real problem is the tweeter isn't going to have a longevity issue unless you are clipping your amp a lot; in that case 4 tweeters might all fail at once.
The simple solution is to install a fuse to protect the tweeter or get a more powerful amp.
Note: tube amps are less likely to damage tweeters when overloaded as they make less higher ordered harmonics than transistors do when overloaded.
HERE ARE the specs of the 3 way crossover and super bullet tweeters i my buy-
Universal 3-Way Crossover-
Crossover frequencies are based on 8 ohm load. an 8 ohm speaker may vary from 7 to 15 ohms or more. Four selectable crossover frequencies: 800, 1600, 5,000, and 7000 Hz. Each speaker element has two options.(with standard 6 dB/octave
attenuation). Here are the 2 possible combinations for Tweeter(letters are labels of terminals.):
5000 hz (E) 7000 hz (F). Crossover handles up to 100 watts of audio power (maximum music power).
Super Bullet Tweeter, 300 watts, 8 ohms-
Power Rating Watts 800W Music Program 1600W Resonance 25Hz Usable Frequency Range 40Hz-800Hz Sensitivity 97 Magnet Weight 109 ounce,Voice Coil Diam. 4-Inch, Resonant Freq. (FS) 25Hz DC Resistance.
Will the 4 super bullet tweeters wired to this crossover have a longer life than if only 1 of same tweeter was wired using 500 watt receiver based on those specs? OR should i buy a new crossover? Thanks for replies.
Usually tweeters only handle a few watts.
