    I am looking to reduce the hiss of my tweeter, without turning it down or off. Looking for recommendations on replacements (or alternatives) to get a hi-fi sound with much reduced hiss.

    Both cabinets are VERY nice boutique cabinets (DNA 112 and Form Factor 112), but I feel like there might be better solution for the tweeter.

    Anybody find a good alternative? besides turning the treble down on my amp or bass, or tweeter :) For instance, do the Bag Ends with coaxial tweeters hiss as much?

    Tweeters do not generate any hiss. They only reproduce what you feed them. So the source of your hiss is elsewhere.

    Good point. But it seems some tweeters are quieter than others, with respect to hiss. So, I guess I am asking for the least hissy tweeter (or small woofer than handles highs)
