so I have HAT imagines and for some reason the tweeter went out, I would like to upgrade my tweeters to something equivalent or better, do you guys have any recommendations for me?

I listen to house/club music, and hip hop r&b and a little rock.

any help appreciated!

With those tweeters at almost 200rms, will they overpower my midrange at 200rms?

Depends on how much power you put on them/location/and what hertz you set them at

Ive heard Morel components at one time, and they sounded pretty clean, but Im not sure you can buy tweets by themselves Ive never looked for theyre site.Maybe a set of Focal, or CDT tweets sound excellent, is what I have,silk dome.Might look at those even

They were nice but I wanna experiment with different brands to see what I like better. If anything I might upgrade to the Clarus tweeters with the crossover

If you use the passive crossovers, I recommend that you buy an identical tweeter. Ask on classifieds on DIYMA. There are people occasionally setting just individual parts from the speaker set. Of course, you can also try different tweeters. Image Dynamics XS28 tweeters have good reputation and are not very expensive. HAT Unity tweeter and crossover seems like a good match too (Unity woofer is supposedly very similar to Imagine). Personally, I would have preferred the XS28 tweeters, as they seem to be more versatile. E.g. they can play much lower than Imagine or Unity tweeters. This is a good thing. I'd use them to play down to 3KHz or wherever their passives allow. The HAT woofers certainly play up to 5-6KHz.. however off axis they do not have very good dispersion above 2KHz due to beaming (this is true of all 6 inch woofers)
