I bought a pair of Pioneer TS - T110 tweeters a few days ago. I wired them in parallel to the door speakers i already have but whenever i turn up the volume they dont produce much sound at all. At best they can get about as loud as headphones. Any idea on why this would be happening?

Tweeters alone do NOT make much sound at all.

Also do you have a HPF on them or are they playing full range?

besides the question above, where are they? what impedance?

Those tweeters have a 7000 Hz crossover - what were you expecting to hear?

I was under the impression that they would play the vocals louder, I have two 15" subwoofers in my trunk and the bass is overpowering.

you need some mids that will work with the tweets. you have a biiiig gap in frequency

2 15's in the trunk? Man talk about over kill, sell those things and get a single 12 inch with a 500 watt amp

No, just step up your mids/highs. Mids play vocals, not tweeters...

I'm dumb then, what exactly would the tweeters be playing?

Yeah it doesn't sound bad, I just want to round everything off pretty much.

Get a component set, you'll be straight. Tweets play upper end vocals and beyond

tweeters with a 7kHz crossover: the "esses" in vocals and cymbals.

Have you told us what speakers you are running up front and what amp is on them?
