Trying to find good 2ohm tweeters that can handle about 80-90W RMS

Why?

Speakers in the door are wired together in series. The 3xl speakers are 3ohms, so im trying to keep impedence low. Stock tweets and speakers were 2 ohm a piece for a 4 ohm load on the HU

Good luck finding some.

Get a pair of 6 ohm tweeters and run in parallel. 6-8 ohm tweeters should be pretty common on Partsexpress.

Was just going to run one tweeter on each channel

and WTF makes you think you need 80-90watts on a tweeter?

x2 LOL - Maybe he meant peak power :cool:

OP is clueless, I've read enough of his posts....

Get some 1" 4 Ohm tweeters and call it done. With music playing the impedance is constantly changing so don't sweat this minor difference.

Sounds like ill do that. I'll grab a set of the accompanying 3xl tweeters rated @ 90 watts so i should be fine.

I'm trying to visualize this... how can a tweeter and speaker (mid?) be wired in series?

I dont know how, but Front left and front right wires are 4 ohms... So they have some sort of wiring, maybe two 8ohms in parallel to 4, not sure.

Typically factory wiring puts them in parallel, with a blocking (hipass) capacitor on the tweeter. An ohmmeter only measures the mid because of the cap.
