In Reply to: RE: Suggestions For Cap Size With Monsoon Tweeter w/ Fulton FMI80 posted by tubav on March 07, 2017 at 03:25:39
It may depend on the fs resonant frequency of the ribbon tweeter. 6uf is a rather large value 1st order capacitor if it is an 8 ohm ribbon tweeter.
It says the Monsoon tweeter is about 2.25 ohms. I won't hit it with a lot of power. I use Heathkit W3M tube monoblocks, about 18 wpc or Eico ST-40 which is about the same. What would you suggest? Thanks.
That reading seems pretty low. Are you sure you used the right setting? Take a look at this web page.
You might need an L-pad to adjust the tweeter level.I suggest over estimating the wattage on the L-pad.Maybe 50 watt or above.
8mfd to l-pad,then to tweeter.
