Classic range 20mm dome tweeter with ferrofluid.

Classic logo

19mm soft dome tweeter with multiple tuned rear chambers, ferrofluid cooled voicecoil and hermetically sealed enclosure. This unit has been in production for more than 3 decades and is still an excellent performer ~ a perennial favourite (possibly the most universally liked of all time) found in many DIY and mainstream designs. The sound characteristic is very good with excellent detail resolution / smoothness and is unfatiguing when used for extended periods.

Suits : Linn Kan Mk1,  Sara,  Isobarik, Rega Ela,  ProAc Tablette EBT,  Studio EBS and a huge range of others.
