Ribbon Tweeter are flat tweeter loudspeakers, which are equipped with a ultra-thin diaphragm membrane. This is electrically conductive and also acts as a voice coil. The diaphragm consists of a rectangular metal foil that is located within a strong magnetic field and generates high tones with the help of air vibrations. Ribbon tweeters make sense in both 2-way and 3-way systems and can be installed in a space-saving manner.
Difference between ribbon tweeter and AMT
AMT stands for Air Motion Transformer and describes a principle similar to ribbon tweeters based on the interaction of a thin metal diaphragm and a strong permanent magnet. The special feature of AMT tweeters is that the foil diaphragm is folded many times like an accordion. Due to this, AMT's produce a higher efficiency and better impulse response.
Which tweeter is the right one?
Who his sound system with high-quality tweeters is well served with both variants. Sound enthusiasts who place great value on high-end sound can use an AMT tweeter to bring out fine nuances in the sound characteristics. For maximum listening pleasure, the use of a signal processor (DSP) is recommended for both tweeter types.
