I have only done this with dome tweeters, but it should work for planars. With the UMIK-1 on a standard boom, I put the mic much closer. Probably 1/10th of that. That gives pretty high resolution. Does it capture everything the tweeter has to say? I have no idea but it looked smooth to me. A bonus is that with such a close distance, you can (or must) reduce the measurement level which also reduces other potential interference.It is a complex thing. I measure the tweeter with the mic about 1 cm away from it. This could cause reflections/comb filtering that would be highly dependent on the shape and configuration of the tweeter. I am open for feedback on how to improve this.
(never do this so close with a woofer folks – they will collide)
