Re: Plasma Tweeters

Welcome to HTS!

Never heard of it, must be a niche product?

Re: Plasma Tweeters

Plasma tweeters are high end stuff, the Acapella ION is $18,000 a pair. There are also DIY atempts at plasma tweeters. I can't find any reference to plasma tweeters on eBay, hopefully the OP will provide a link.

Re: Plasma Tweeters

WOW, you can buy a LOT of very nice speakers for that price!!! Not sure there is a true 'benefit' in the technology.I looked it up, curious how they sound but can't accept the cost.

Re: Plasma Tweeters

I too was interested in this. I found a link in eBay uk for a pair of ionovac speakers. 600 us. I also checked ionovac website. It seems that the technology was beyond its time. Sounded great but unreliable.

Re: Plasma Tweeters

I used to work at a TV/HI-Fi store in Visalia CA about 20 years ago. A couple of guys in the back room used to make their own and add them to Quad electrostats. A nice blue glow!

They claimed they had usable output up to 40kHz.
