my right side rsd tweet is pretty melted too. it's actually dead now. lol my entire right side of RSDs are dead since friday. though i've had them for about a year already. i don't understand though as they have been on pretty much the same settings on each amp and all tuned with the ktx-100eq. oh well.. they were alright.

noob question: do they play music?

maybe i should have elaborated.

im looking for tweeters myself as you know. I looked at those but didnt give it much consideration because they are 8 ohm...most of them. from the little i know about car audio most of them are 2 and 4ohm...including my rsd set.

so whats why i ask. i wouldnt mind getting a set as they are cheap..but would they work fine?

yes. they also have crossovers you can buy if you dont have them.

Theride

only the crossover that comes with the RSD. would i need a crossover to convert from 8ohm to 4?

same boat - melted rsd tweets. were fine unitl the other weeked...been solid for about a year. played them loud for a long time but also had the car in the sun a lot.

i can't see it actually being the sun?? if so then i'll probably end up melting my next tweets too. i had 90w going to each component. perhaps when i tried to blast the stanley cup final on AM radio??? hahaha it sounded really bad.

i can't read behind all the sarcastic comments if the sun could actually be the reason for the melting??? please help so i don't make the same mistake.

can i still mount my new tweets in the 'a-PILLARS' ?? went with Pioneer TS-D1720C to replace.

I bridged my amp (150w/side) to my RSD set, here in the New Mexico heat (pretty hot) for at least 6 months and my tweeters looked fine after taking them out.
