i was searching across partsexpress.com and i looked up some tweeters and i saw some onkyo 3/8s squares for .25 cent so i said what the hell and i bought for of them...mounting is kindof hard due to terminal position but overall these things are clean and very loud...expessially mixed with my alpine type s's...to those of you looking for a REALLY enexpensive tweeter i'd choose these flat out

just my .02, i will prolly get bashed by the SQ guys but im just stating my opinion.....

I wouldn't run it below 5khz....or above 10khz.


But hey, for a quarter, what do you expect?

Though I would suggest investing in a dictionary;

for = four
expessially = especially
enexpensive = inexpensive
prolly = probably

I bought 10 of those tweeters just for shits and giggles with my last PE order. A couple of them were DOA. The ones that work don't sound that great (they play very high, somewhat harsh, weird sound). They include a high-pass capacitor on them. For $0.25 they're a lot of fun to play with!

The 4x6 speakers for $0.40 are a steal too. I picked up about 8 of those to make some videos with.

They may not be too bad if you had them in dash or a pillar
