Different sound from the tweeter if it has a silk or titanium dome.

Titanium will have a metally harsh sound. Silk will have a softer sound. Both can sound good. It is personal preference. As for size it's up to you. I would get the biggest tweeter you can fit. And Kicker is not known for tweeters, but they do make decent equipment.

Thats all personal preference...

Listen to a bunch and look for characteristics that you like.

Silk tweeters are usually less detailed, but much easier to listen to at high volumes ...

I guess this is where MB Quart went wrong...although, listening to some new Q-Line and Premium speakers recently was drastically different than before - I actually liked the tweeters. Im probably an idiot though, because they probably didnt change anything from last year.

I have titanium tweeters in my rear and silk in the front and I personally feel the sound is cleaner and more realistic out of the silk tweeters.
