Help identifying horn loaded vintage tweeter

Recommended Posts

Hi All.

 

I picked up a single tweeter today and would like some help identifying it.  The seller said it was a Jensen tweeter from the 1950s, but I think it looks more like an EV tweeter.  There are no identifying markings or labels on the tweeter.  The horn front is 1.3 X 4.5 inches, and the horn with driver are 3 inches from front to back (11.5 X 3.25 cm and 7.5 cm deep).  Pictures attached.  I'm hoping to use it as the tweeter in a three way center channel speaker I have in mind.  Any help with identifying it that you can provide will be be much appreciated.

 

Cheers,

Tiz

Thanks for identifying it filmofreddy.  What is it about it that makes it not so great?

I had a look online for TW-35, but all the examples I could find had a ribbed horn lens instead of the smooth one that I have at hand.

I think I found it.  This photo looks most like it.  No front photo unfortunately, but it looks identical from the back (minus the label).  T35B
