piezo speaker max. voltage

  1. Hi sec!

    What's the maximum useful voltage a piezo speaker can take? I thought of
    putting it in parallel to a Geiger Mueller tube or an Ne-2 bulb as an
    improvised geiger counter.

    The piezo speakers I have are salvaged from other devices so I have no
    data sheets. Looking at other datasheets the maximum specified voltage
    was 30 V. I have created about 50 V by flexing a piezo speaker, though.
    One datasheet specified "DC Voltage Not to be applied between
    electrodes"[1]. I'd be having 80+ V DC.

    Thanks, Bernhard
