Alpine C3-100CT 1" Silk Dome Component Tweeters - Advance Electronics

Alpine C3-100CT 1" Silk Dome Component Tweeters

The silk dome tweeter is prized by audiophiles for delivering realistic, non-fatiguing, high-frequency performance.

The C3 component tweeters are built with 1-inch silk dome diaphragms that deliver powerful, extended response, on and off axis. Flush-mounting and surface-mounting fixtures are included to fit a wide variety of installation needs. They can also be installed coaxially onto the C3 woofers using the fixtures included with the C3 Component / Coaxial Systems.

Inline 12 dB / octave high-pass filters with tweeter protectors are included with this kit. The C5-075ct is designed to operate above 4 kHz with a minimum high-pass slope of 12 dB / octave.

Sonic character: Clean and Powerful

Silk Dome Tweeter

Summary:
Light, fast moving silk dome material promotes high-frequency accuracy. 

Detailed Information:
Silk is a natural material with inherently good characteristics as a tweeter diaphragm. In addition to being very light in weight, silk exhibits excellent damping properties, which reduces ringing and resonances in the tweeter’s passband, leading to a smooth, pleasing high-frequency character free from unnatural sibilance or exaggerated brightness. Compared to a harder material dome, a silk tweeter does not exhibit as much ultra-high frequency extension, but is preferred by many audiophiles for its overall balance.
