BLITZ audio FTW!!!!

Seriously, you need to provide some info, not just ask a simple question. What mids are they mating up with, what "sound" do you like, are you just looking to get loud/make noise?

its going to depend on your mids and where you want your crossover point to be

I have a RE XXX 15" so I am leaning more towards loud than for SQ. In the doors I have 4way 5x7 pioneers.

I have my door speakers on a MTX amp and would probably put the tweeters on my Eclipse CD5000 cd player. I dont know if that would be the best setup

I know those 4ways have the tweeter and super tweeter but they still cant stay with the bass. I think as much highs I can get from those pioneers, I turned the bass all the way down on them and added bass blockers.

Its a little more money than $50 but if you want the best tweeters for the money look at some Earthquake Screamers...They will keep up with anything ;)

I'm in North Louisiana near Ruston.....You can check on some DD tweeters DDT28...they are really nice quality heavy duty tweeter that sell for $59 a pair.....I think your close to MST over near Baton Rouge / Gonzalez area they are a DD dealer....

Unless you put a bandpass filter on your mids, then you'll be getting cancellation by just throwing in a tweeter.

Sorry, what do you mean by cancellation?

it seems to me ur gettin further away from SQ. ditch the 4ways and pick up a good compnent set. No point in cheaping out on the speakers if u already spent that much money for a 15" XXX

I was going to go for sq, but to get decent components that would keep up with the sub is too much $. I would love to have some rainbows,morel,focal or something along that line at some point.

but to get decent components that would keep up with the sub is too much $.

So just set the sub levels correctly so it doesn't overpower the front stage?
