Above are some of the pictures taken from a reader's Swiftlet farm after Hi-Nest Gs18 tweeters were installed not long ago. Almost all the installed Hi-Nest GS-18 Tweeters have nests built above them and some have nest markings on them.
Mr.K was quite pessimistic about tweeters. To him all tweeters are the same. His Swiftlet farm has been operated for almost 2 years now.
A typical China-man, who believes birds will eventually come when one has luck. To him all tweeters are the same the only different is the shape and the price.
He had called me many times often wanted to get tips from me. He is very polite and honest which I like the most in him. He once told me..."James, I only have 20 tweeters in my farm. Is that enough?". Well my reply was " it depends how big is that area. If it is a 12x12ft size then it is sufficient".
I asked him to try some of the Gs18 tweeters and that was a couple of months ago. To assure him, I told him if there is not a single nest built on those Gs18 tweeters you could send them back to me.
And now a couple of months later almost all Gs18 tweeters have nests built on top of them. Words can't express how happy he was. To share his joy he invited me to visit his Swiftlet farm to see it myself. I guess that is what sharing is all about...ha..ha..ha.
Now he is talking..." James, I realized not all tweeters are the same. You really have changed my thinking".
What so special about the Gs18 tweeter? Before we go into it we need to understand what and how a tweeter is made.
A tweeter consists of 4 important parts which influence the sound it produces.
1) The Outer. Which consist of the( Piezo ) front mouth and its back cover.
2) The Paper material which sticks to the copper plate ( wafer).
3) The copper plate.
4) The wires that connect the copper plate to the in/out (+/-) outlets.
Of course there are many more factors that may influence the sound that produced by the said tweeter. But lets look at 4 factors first.
The Outer material (front mouth) has to be of tweeter making material. Not all plastic materials are suitable for making the Outer. Some materials which are not designed for tweeter Outer making would actually absorb the sound instead of re-bounce. In order to save cost many manufactures used normal plastic materials to make the cover. To them..."anyway how many people are smart enough to know this". When the sound is being adsorbed it would distorted the frequency.
The Paper material also influences the sound. There are many types and grades of Paper material to choose from, obviously the high quality ones would cost double the price. High quality Paper materials are durable. It has the right elasticity to produce good sound. Due to its good elasticity it would last longer. As we know Swiftlet farm Internal sound runs 24/7 non-stop. So a good quality Paper material inside the tweeters is important to the life span of the tweeter. Often to save cost of production low quality Paper material is used.
The Copper plate influences the sound significantly. Rule of thumb, bigger the plate louder the sound. Besides the size, thickness, harness, etc..... the material of the plate itself also affects the sound quality. Again due to cost of production, most manufactures opted for a smaller copper plate. Often they are plated with copper.
Often copper wire is used for connection. This is due to its efficiency in transferring energy and sound frequency, but they are expensive. To save cost non copper wires are used and they are coated with copper instead.
Now you understand how a Tweeters being made.
With the understanding of the above Gs18 selects the best materials to come out with a Tweeter that could produce the best Swiftlet sounds.
Gs18 tweeter was made through the adjustment of the 4 factors above. Gs18 is tuned to the frequency of Swiftlet. It is designed, tuned and produced by people who understand Swiftlet sounds. For sure it is not made for Karaoke use. I guarantee you this.
