LPG 25NFA if you want soft-dome: http://www.madisound.com/cgi-bin/index.cgi?cart_id=7487680.5227&pid=635

Vifa D26 (used in the CDT ES 07 set): http://www.madisound.com/cgi-bin/index.cgi?cart_id=7487680.5227&pid=1325

Dayton Reference Tweeter: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Partnumber=275-130

Seas has some good tweeters aswell.

All of those are good options.


first of all, what's the difference between hard dome and soft dome.

secondly, how much would a decent pair of tweeters run me...

thirdly, if i'm using the pioneer premier deh770 head-unit, can i sufficently power a pair of tweeters, or do i need to get an amp.

and if I do need an amp, how big will it have to be to run the two tweeters AND my front 2 4'' rockford fosgate speakers.

Hard dome uses "hard" material such as metal for the dome of the tweeter, soft dome is "soft" material like textile, etc.


secondly, how much would a decent pair of tweeters run me...

$50-$100

You'd be better off with an external amp.

I wouldn't ;) If you are going to add a tweeter, now would be a good time to upgrade the mids aswell. Might as well just buy a new comp set.

Adding a tweeter to those co-axials isn't really going to help much. You would be better off with a whole new frontstage.

i thought about a whole new comp set, but the sticky recomended putting stuff in kicks or door panels. i drive a small car(mazda 626) so i don't have room for kicks, and my door panels don't have speakers in them, and as of right now i don't have the time do deal with making new panels or having someone else do it for me.

edit: if i were to get a comp set, are both of these acceptable?

and if they are acceptable, could i get an amp reccomendation?

I like the pioneers better. For that type of wattage requirements, the diamond audio 3.400.4 isn't a bad bet at around $150 shipped. There may be better deals but I have one and it works well.

so if i got those pioneer components, it would be 2 6 1/2'' speakers, and two 1'' tweeters.

so would i just put those 6 1/2'' speakers in my rear deck?
