    folks.
    do you think by adding tweeters can really boost audio performance? from my understand, in theory, that human ears can hear 20~20kHz. usually tweeter delivers >20kHz, some even jumps to 100kHz! but if ears can't really hear >20kHz freq, what's the point to add useless tweeters?

    if you guys think tweeters can really upgrade my HT, which brand/model do you recommend? my budget is <US$1000. tks pals.

    my current gears are:
    main: Tannoy Stirling
    center/side surr: Mirage OmniSat
    rear surr: Celestion DL6
    powered sub: SVS PB12-ISD2
    amp: Onkyo NR900

    Super tweeters have been discussed a few times, some say they work very well whilst others claim no difference to the sound quality. I would try and arrange a loan set or home demo to see if they work for you.

    Another issue is that they tend to be very expensive although some have made there own.

    Humans do not really hear above 20Khz, we perceive it in the same way we perceive information below 20hz

    tks.
    did bit search, found few makers offer tweeters.
    now consider Tannoy ST100/200, Murata ES105.
    now main sp is Tannoy Stirling but may get Westlake BBSM soon.
    not sure which tweeter is the best choice and $ of each one?
