    Altec 802 Question

    IN the setup im building Im going to be using a jbl 2440 for my mids and Im pondering the idea of using a great plain 802 for the highs, 8 khz and up. Is this idea folly?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Personally, I would opt for a more traditional 'tweeter'
    The 802 is generally used from 500hz or 1200hz and up in a two way....

    077s are excellent in this range....


    Think some graphs have been posted showing required compensation to get 802 drivers
    response out to ~20K.... But it wasn't deemed an optimal deployment... IIRC

    Thats what I needed to know thanks.

    I would love to have a pair of 077's but there a little to pricey for me.

    patience and dilligent, local searching, will both be your friends...

    it can happen....

    baby butt cheek tweeters, 2404, are real nice too...
    and normally less expensive...

    or a stop gap in the meantime, you could use something from beyma or ????

    I ordered 2 fountek ribbon tweeters for the time being. I wanted to stick with all alnico drivers. For now these will work.

    And maybe in the future Ill aquire some jbl slots or bullets.
