FaitalPro HF-102. It’s about 95dB @ 20kHz, 1w/1m. It’s compression but sounds like a quality dome tweeter on steroids.
You probably want to use a short-throw horn or no horn at all, depending on your ceiling height. It's best to keep the dispersion fairly narrow when reflecting off the ceiling for ambient fill. The highest frequencies will radiate into the room the same way a cymbal disperses energy. I have found the rules for ambient tweeter setup to be different from everything else. Try crossing high with a single cap; I am using a 0.15uf Mundorf Supreme with my FaitalPro HF-102. It has a big impact on my front firing full ranger and is quite seamless.

Sorry, I’m actually using a Jantzen Z Silver cap with the HF-102’s. It’s a 0.15 uF value. I preferred this to the Mundorf cap that I had on hand, when coupled with the compression drivers.
Finding the right value cap for my tweeters is an exercise in trial and error. Alligator clips and listening to a variety of caps takes so time but it's worth it.
Thanks again Matevana. My aims are the same as yours and your knowledge is much greater. I will go with that
Hey Chris,One thing you might try per Poultry’s suggestion is to buy a bunch of cheap caps between 0.15 and 1.0 uF and do some testing yourself. Once you have your drivers dialed-in, then go order a more expensive premium cap. Many of the small value non polarized caps are under a buck.
