Features

Tweeters: The Neo Type-M SE Imaging System tweeters are 1" Type M-1 anodized alloy domes with AMD (Amplitude Modification Device) for a smooth high frequency response and linearity. AMD is a patented acoustical tuning device that uses precisely sized hollow tubes positioned in front of the tweeter to refocus short wavelength energy and create an extremely smooth, flat response. This is done without using elaborate electronic components that can degrade the sound's purity. The supplied Quick-fit mounting cup simplifies tweeter installation.

Mounting Options: The tweeter can be flush mounted or surface mounted (at approximately 45°).

Mounting Dimensions:

  Flush Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Height 0.4" 1.5"
Depth 0.845" 0.428" (screw depth)
Frame Diameter 2.034" N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.718" N/A
Frame Width N/A 1.878"
Frame Length N/A 1.746"

Crossovers: The crossovers' inputs and outputs are set screw terminals and will accept bare wire up to 14 gauge. A set of outputs (unaffected by the crossover) is shorted to the inputs, making it easy to add the tweeters to existing speaker wire.

Tweeter Attenuation: A jumper on each crossover allows you to adjust the tweeter output; select un-attenuated tweeter output (0dB attenuation) or an attenuated output of -3 dB, -6 dB, or -9 dB.

Imaging Mode: Another jumper on each crossover changes the imaging mode. In SQ mode the crossover point is 8 kHz; in SPL mode the crossover point is 3 kHz.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Length: 6.458"
  • Height: 1.553"
  • Width: 1.942"

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced a set of the Boston ISTS imaging tweeters with these for no other reason than just to have matching tweeters for my Boston Pro SE Component set. I thought the ISTS series tweeters sounded great, as evidenced by my review on them. I used these in the stock dash locations on a 2010 Dodge Ram Pick-up truck, and gave them 50 watts. Wow, there was definitely an improvement over the ISTS series, as those were little harsher. The ISTS sounded great in the system, but the NEO's take the cake. The crossover is huge, has a tweeter protection circuit (light bulb in the crossover for over power), and is adjustable in two ways....There is a jumper selection for SPL setting (3,000hz crossover point) and Imaging (8,000hz crossover point). There is also a second jumper on each crossover for attenuation (0db, -3db, -6db, -9db). Additionally, there is a set of outputs on the crossovers for daisy-chaining speakers. I am very pleased with these as they have brightened my front sound stage more so than the ISTS series. I would recommend the ISTS to anyone with an entry level to mid-level system. However, if you have a more complex or higher level, definitely get these!

Pros: Tweeter protection circuit, crossover options, clarity!

Cons: Enormous Crossover for a small tweeter!!!
