You may be the only one, Ohms. They come up fine for me. Could be either your browser or an add-in/extension that's blocking it.

spec's
Manufacturer PEERLESS
Tweeter Type Silk Dome Tweeter
Cone / Dome Diameter 25mm
Impedance 6 ohms
Power Handling (RMS) 225W
Resonance Frequency 650 Hz -20,000 Hz
Sensitivity 91 dB

I'm going to make these fit one way or another. They sure as heck go low enough to crossover at 1500Hz. I'll keep you updated on how it goes when they come in next week.

Nice to see this thread revived. I'd like to know how it goes with this tweeter, both in the whole swapping process and the final sound.

Odd, I did not do anything but the pics are showing up fine now... :oops:

Excellent opportunity to repair the ill fated tweeters...

Can anyone tell me if there is someone that can replace the Ferro-fluid if the coils are still good? I'm in Vancouver area.
Thanks

Vancouver Speaker Clinic repairs and services them...some people have had them do preventative maintenance with a fluid refresh.

Just wondered if the Peerless tweeters worked out?

Am I dreaming or did Boa from Centek in Ottawa not buy the guy from Halifax's tooling and parts? I'm sure I saw that mentioned here somewhere on CAM.

Well I just finally managed to find someone in the USA to machine new faceplates for the tweeters and I'll have them sometime next week, he just finished them today. Here's what they look like. Image

i suggest that the op keep an eye out here and other sites for the tweeters and that he doesnt have to limit himself to actual energy pro 22 , should look for sound dynamics too


yeah, because those sd spun aluminum tweets are bulletproof....not.

I have been speaking with Chris at ABI-Tech in Halifax recently; he is still rebuilding the 22 tweeters. I'm about to send a pair off to him this week actually.

They did an GREAT job on the mounting plates. I'm a fan of these little floor standers? I never did own or even hear a set. It would be fun to back to back compare 22's with later 22.2 and 4.1e

The last 2 didn't have the million dollar tweeter so they probably didn't sell as well, Once Energy was sold of to Klipsch which was one there main competitors, So Klipsch made energy speakers will a lot less quality and they went down hill very quickly to a run of mill speaker. Nothing like they used to be. I wouldn't buy a modern one.

If anyone wanted a set made just contact Luke Hultquist at this FB group https://www.facebook.com/groups/6657813 ... 7453259422

The hyperbolic. The later may not have a "million dollar tweeter" but do have some other fine design elements. Energy was one of those makes you can have a good deal of fun for not a ton of money. I'm picking these up tomorrow, reviews and build made them a tempting offer to try out. Loud clean midrange value is what attracted me. I will hook them up in 2.1 with peerless 10" folded horn. http://www.goodsound.com/equipment/ener ... ni_s83.htm
