General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Would wiring 4 super tweeters per speaker box increase life of tweeters?

Your requirement would not be relevant if a single supertweeter is being used within its correct operational design parameters. Having 4 of them operating within the same correct operational design parameters won't necessarily make any practical difference to longevity which can also depend upon matters like ferrofluid if applied drying out over time.

So I assume that you want to use lots of them in order to handle power levels outside of their individual design envelope. It seems to me that the answer will partly lie within the crossover design. For example, if the 4 tweeters are simply wired in parallel to the (super) treble section of the crossover then the load impedence will drop and they will accordingly draw more current which may defeat your objective. So the concept that multiplying the number of speakers will result in a proportionate increase in acceptable power handling capacity is not necessarily true.However you do say that the speakers will be correctly wired. As already mentioned there may also be a penalty paid in maintaining correct treble dispersion in relation to the other drivers although this is a moot point given that these are supertweeters operating above the conventional limit of hearing.

However I am sure that there are other inmates who will know a lot more than me.
