Another e-mail on the Forum recommended a single 0. The FT17H is ideal for mounting in an enclosure – front and rear firing. I mean, how many parts on earth do you have to keep on buying until you find what you like?

Part recommendation: Fostex FT17H

The Fostex FT17H is an economical horn super tweeter with a frequency response that extends out to 50 kHz. Last update 29 April Vocals are impressive too.

I don’t have to tell you this new procedure is a P-A-I-N. The FT17H horn tweeter has a high sensitivity, rated at The nominal impedance of the FT17H horn tweeter is 8 ohms making the horn tweeters easy to drive even with small amplifiers.

Noting that I hate sizzle or exaggerated treble. The horn super tweeter offers a crisp high frequency response that extends out well past the audible range.

Every unit even has frequency response chart, specifications, mounting dimensions and configuration example. Those guys on the Super 12 Forum is right.

Other than the “air” factor, it also seems to have more “body” and “feel” to it. So I did as they did, and mounted mine on top of the cabinet, angled at the listener, with some Blu-tack.


I haven’t heard so much treble from my system! Created 29 April Hey, you idiots reading this, stop spoiling our reputation! The Fostex, at I was suprised to find it quite heavy, g 0.

If you haven’t been on this planet lately, a search on Ebay will show you that speaker drivers with alnico magnets command a stratospheric price over their non-alnico cousins.

No, not the sound, but the idea. Included with the horn tweeter are mounting screws and a datasheet. What do I have?

The overall weight of the FT17H tweeter is g 0. Heard that some commercial mosquitoes repellant utilize a 40kHz frequency tone to “shoo-shoo” mosquitoes away.

Ever since my Hammer Dynamics started singing, I have been having lots of fun. You see, the Hammer Dynamics main 12″ driver has a sensitivity of 97dB while this Audax is only 94dB.

I get too conscious of the treble! Right out of the box, they look good. Furthermore, if the fax fostsx to “somewhere else”, I’d be more worried about being a victim of credit fraud than anything else! This explains the VERY relaxed treble. A gasket comes affixed to the tweeter housing. The FT17H horn tweeter uses a shielded magnet.

But it’s very clear, and very extended I don’t have to say this right? Previously, all it takes is a couple of e-mail messages and the goods will be on your way, but nowadays, they requested me to fax a copy of my ID AND my credit card. So far, build quality of all Fostex drivers I have come across look really good. The build quality of the Fostex FT17H horn tweeter is good for the price range. Since this Fostex has output up till 50kHz, there should be Will fiddle around until I find a position I like.


Seems that mosquitoes can’t stand this frequency probably some pets too. The Fostex FT17H horn tweeters came neatly packaged in a small cardboard boxes. DAC in use now, is the non-oversampling variety, thus, there should be a I got mine from Madisound but ordering through them isn’t as easy as before.

Err, wish to add another point. You can use and L-Pad attenuator to match the tweeter level to your speakers. Upgrading every component in the crossover doesn’t sound good to me.

Provided that a crossover fosted in-excess of about 10 kHz is used, the performance is very good. Finally cymbals and hi-hats have more “body”. I have to say that if anything, these tweeters are under-hyped. Haven’t done much on it, but swapping the only electrolytic in the crossover with a better cap yielded even better sound!

Reason being, too many credit fostwx frauds. Super 12 Forum guys recommend “padding” the tweeter with a 1 ohm series resistor and 65 ohm shunt resistor.
