You dont hook them up you just mount them anywhere. Amplifiers can send wireless signals to tweeters :fyi:

a standard component setup (tweeters and a midbass) with be wired into a crossover, which is then wired into to the headunit.

When going active, its a completely different story (im guessing you wont be doing this).

so, ya better hope there are two wires coming from your tweeter (positive and negative)

you should have a crossover with them if you bought them as a set.. if not you will run the tweeters to their own channel and set them up that way..

Edit: i see you only have a two channel so if you don't have a crossover you will need one or another amp

Hooking up tweets is simple, it should look something like this when your done.

what kind of speakers do you have? did these tweeters come with them? or did you buy them seperately?

some tweeters don't show enough impedence to bother with, but u can always just saddle with the front door speakers behind the radio. if you have an aftermarket cd/radio then chances are you'll have a wiring harness as well. hook the pos to the solid colors (white/gray) and the neg to the matching color with the stripe on it (white w/black stripe, gray w/black stripe.)

A crossover determines what frequencies go to what speakers. The tweeters you have can only reproduce high frequencies and not lower notes or bass of any kind. So in you case you would want to block all the frequencies EXCEPT the high ones and only the high ones go to your tweeter.

All the terms you hear, high pass, low pass, bass blockers, crossovers, all refer to how the signal from your stereo is manipulated by various devices sending the right signal to the right speaker.

could i just run my wire directly to my door speakers? + with + and - with - ?

or will that push to much watts for the tweeter?

It will drop the impedance load so I would say no, dont do it.

so are you saying i run my pos/neg wire from the tweeter to the back of my HU were my speakers are connected to?

or hook them directly to the speakers?
