What exactly is a ribbon tweeter. On another forum they are talking about these LCY 130 Ribbon tweeters. Has anyone listened to these? They seem to be very large, however, i am planning on using a complete custom install anyways. Any information would be greatly appreciated, Thank you.

Ribbons are very smooth and natural, just not as dynamic as conventional tweeters. They work well on Jazz, Classical, Acoustic, and vocal forms of music. Basically in place of the voice coil, they use an aluminum strip to act as the conductor (voice coil) and it also serves as the diaphragm, many times it is attached to mylar or another similar material for strength and optimum resistance. Function otherwise is similar to a conventional tweeter.
