Hi,

i like to change a high piezo tweeter in my Arcus TM150 speakers.

Actually a 35 kHz tweeter is build in, can i replace it with a 40 kHz tweeter?
Is there a danger of overheat any electronic part ?
Can it result in a lower sound quality ?

Thank you for any suggestions and help,

Oliver

Dear Tom,

thank you for the info! I will keep your tipps in mind when ordering the new one.

You can replace it, and I would see that you would have any issue as long as you keep these 2 factors in mind.
Make sure the power rating is the same, if not greater than your original
Make sure the new tweeter is also a piezo.

If the new one is a coil type, you may need to put a small bi polar electrolitic (1 to 2 ufd) in series with the + connection, if there isn't one there already.

And I don't believe you will hear the 35Khz, much less the 40Khz. Our hearing range doesn't go anywhere near that level. Most people will have a hard time hearing 12Khz and above.

But have fun
Tom
