tweeter attenuation

Postby richard moran » Mon Sep 10, 2012 10:55 pm

Hi Folks. I'm wondering if anyone can help me with this situation.
I recently built a pair of speakers based on a fried tl design that i had. The tweeter I chose is a Dayton rs28f-4. I feel this is a great tweeter for the price but it seems to play louder than the 88 db that is in the specs. Not a good match in that respect to the woofer. I was told I could use an L-pad with a 16 ohm res. in between the + and - of the tweeter and a 1.2 res in line on the positive side. It seems to work fine but I've never liked to put anything in the signal path that might hinder sound quality. Not to mention the fact that I got ones that are too friggin big. Does anyone know if there is a way to cut down on the tweeter output without using the L-pad?
