View Full Version : Where to mount tweeters?

Hey guys, I just purchased a pair of Infinity 6820cs speakers for my 1998 Contour's front doors. They will be amplified using a 90rms Infinity 475a 4 channel amp.

I was planning on mounting the tweeters in the same area as in my old car, however a car audio friend (who has been doing installs for 8 years) told me that he highly didn't recommend that. :confused:

He suggested that I find a place to mount the tweeter closer to the midrange speaker lower on the door. He said that Infinity tweeters are very "high" and it could be annoying to have the tweeter as it's shown in the picture. Though, on the other hand, I've always been told to have the tweeter higher up so it's closer to your ears instead of pointing to your lap (unlike the midrange speaker). I love the location of the tweeters on my old car, but they are a different brand and also not amplified.

So what area suits best for installation and why.

Thanks guys :)

I suggest using double sided tape and try multiple places to find out what sounds best to you.

that works. a few days for each spot would be nice. then again with each spot, there's different aiming..

listen to your friend, Infinity tweets are harsh, keep them close to the mids

I currently have O2 tweeters and I love their location. I'm actually disappointed the Infinity tweeters are said to be so painfully high that they must be relocated somewhere else.

I will try several different places on the door, but from everyone's opinion, if this were your car, where would you place the tweeters?

lol, for the price I think they'll be decent. Nothing but great reviews from a few sites.
