View Full Version : Making tweeters less harsh?

I have 2 Vifa XT25SC90-04 tweeters on a separate 2 channel amp. I added a 10uf capacitor to filter out everything below about 4k hz I believe.

What makes a Tweeter harsh?

Is lowering the gain on the amp the same as adding a resistor inline with the power wire?

They are mounted in my dash aiming up at the a pillar on each side.

Thanks

Do you know if these can be made using parts from RadioShack?

You're probably better off getting a silk dome tweeter of some sort

Oh okay, well I just spent $45 on these but thanks for the input.

So. Does anyone know if lowering the gain is the same as adding a resistor?

In theory, yes. Give it a shot

Lower the gain. If you play just the tweeters they should barely be audible. I'm guessing you're throwing too much power at them, especially if they're reflecting off the windshield...

Thanks, I lowered the gain and they sound good.

Tweeters can be harsh due to the install (to close,poor locations ect), tweeter dome material, settings/tuning, and the list goes on. Been a long time since I've been on a car audio forum, I'll post again in another 5 years lmao!
