    How are the dimensions of a speaker taken. is it across the entire speaker tip to tip or is it to just the outise of the little ridge that goes all the way around or to the inside of that ridge?

    thanks

    I believe that the most common method is to measure between opposite screw holes.

    The tweeter is measured by the size of the diaphragm. And the 10" is a woofer, not a sub.

    and the diaphragm being exactly from where to where on the speaker. P.S. thanks for the semantic correction

    The diaphragm is the radiating surface, looks like a dome, or inverted dome. The size is approximately the diaphragm's diameter.
