I am now ready to buy my system

and looking for the components that i wanted. went to diamond audios site and i see the scratched the M series and replaced it with the D series so since i'm not going to change speakers anytime soon and will bring it to new car if it has 6.5" going to get those instead of the M.

now they have the D661A = Aluminum tweets and D661S = silk tweets

which one is better to buy the A or the S?
i like to listen to music loud

will be amping them with ~100w RMS amp

going to get DIAMOND AUDIO CM361 for rear

i want component set with cross-overs

thanks!!

The silk ones will be softer, smoother. The aluminum ones will be sharper and more precise. If you like rolling highs get the silk ones, if you like crisp highs get the aluminum ones. Personally I like silk better but they're both good.

i prefer some metals over silk and some silk over metal, or even fabric over others.


it really depends on the tweeter as a whole, not just the material of the tweeter.


likewise, some of my favorites are the Focal TN-45, Seas Lotus Reference Metal and Fabric, and Morel Supremo. Mind you they are not limited to silk, metal, titanium, fabric, etc. What sounds good sounds good regardless :D

if your tweets are going to be on your back dash (like reflecting off of the back windwindow) then it'll be really sharp and harsh so I'd go with silk dome, but for kick panel or doors you could go with metal dome tweets. For the magnets though, neodynium all the way.
