View Full Version : Best tweeters on 18RMS

Since I'm using a pioneer head unit and amping my mids the head unit still puts out 18 rms x4 at 4 ohms I was thinking about putting 2 tweeters up front.

The Alpine Type-R coaxials I'm using are decent but I'd like just a bit louder highs.

Anyone have experience with a cheap pair or tweeters that might do well off of the head units internal amp?

What's your budget?...plus if they come with an inline crossover, you can run your fronts at 2 ohm.
Or rear and use your fader at a volume control.

Well, I'd like to keep my budget under $60-80 considering I just want ones to run really low power. I don't mind paying for quality but I'm not at the stage in my build to get monsterous tweeters and amp them.

The ones I usually get are the ones with the little capacitor that you connect inline with the power wire.

How would I be able to run them 2 ohm? I was thinking the internal head unit amp was 4 ohm stable.

Thx dude

Precision Power T.5 4 Ohm 80W Dome Tweeter - Sonic Electronix (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_67905_Precision-Power-T.5.html)

Looks decent. What do you think?

How would I use my fader as a volume control if I'm already running front and rear speakers?

What do you mean "bit louder highs"?

Adding a few tweeters off 18watts each will do little to nothing to make you louder...

More of the high hissing type sounds that tweeters make.

Well you won't even be getting 18w out of the internal amp...
I use these tweeters though, and recommend them. They do well off of low power: Vifa XT25SC90-04 1" Dual Ring Radiator Tweeter | 264-1014 (http://www.parts-express.com/vifa-xt25sc90-04-1-dual-ring-radiator-tweeter--264-1014)

Way better than the PPI's. Either those or the LPG 25NFA tweeters at the same place.

Do you know if they come with a filter or what a lot of people call a bassblocker?

I've never heard of these companies before, are they generic?

Also can't seem to find the LPG 25NFA on parts-express..

Thanks for the suggestion

They are not generic. LPG and Vifa OEM for alot of high end companies. Looks like the 25NFA's they dont sell any more. Madisound has the 26NA's or the Seas Prestige

Oh okay, I understand. So, do you know if the Vifa XT25SC90-04's the he recommended come with something to filter out the lower frequencies? Right now the HPF is set to 50Hz obviously that isn't going to work..

Why would you want a hissing sound???

Seriously get a decent comp set or PA mids and supertweeters...

Seas Prestige's has served me very well but I run a good amount of power to them not the 8 or so watts you have.

I went ahead and bought them, now I'm wondering which crossover to use for them. Any tips?

Just buy a Bass Blocker for a few bucks. Id cross around 3k - 3.5k...
