i'm replacing my old one with a bullet tweeter,have I made the right choice?
Hard to say....
From what I've read, the reason that a manufactuer puts a certain design in a cabinet is because that design works the best as far as sound quality and dispersion.
That said, assuming you have a proper working crossover and know the sensitivity of the tweeter best suited to your cab, look at some tweeters made by Selenium.
Most tweeters are chosen for two-way cabs not because of great dispersion shaping (that takes a larger well-designed horn) or good matchup with the woofer's response before beaming limits - but because they are relatively cheap and small. And most use compression drivers because they are more efficient so it only takes one to truly keep up.
That said, one of the better unitized compression units can be found at Carvin.com in the speaker replacement section.
+1. Most cabs would be far better off with a midrange driver, but it and the required crossover are more expensive than a tweeter.
I'm actually considering this for the compression driver on my next three-way project:
On the right medium-format horn you can cross this coax over as low as 300 Hz for a single point source that's been well proven in touring/installations. Yowzah!
my cab is a 210 with a crossover,and is rated at 400wrms at 8ohms
