can i replace my alpine type r tweeter with a different one like a cdt tweeter? reason i ask is someone pushed my tweeter in with their finger or something when they were in my car and now it doesnt sound all that great.

man your in pittsburgh, you need to kick his *** and steal his money for a new tweeter, thats not cool...

Only if the "new" tweeter is of the same impedence with close to the same DCR. If you change the impedence of the tweeter with a different impedence it will change the xover point.

08-29-2004, 10:02 PM

Personally as a "Above Newb but not expert" opinion..I have gotten alot of Diffrent answers on this in the past..MASTER SQUEAK is right..The new tweeters need to meet the guidlines of the old ones..but overall many VERY HIGH BUDGET Sytems often use diffrent makers for thier speakers (i.e..alot of guys use MOREL mids w/diff tweets)
With some high budget components I have heard you make dis-approve of the overall sound with other tweeters...They complain that these High end Set ups are "perfectly matched" and messing up that combination is not reccomended for good SQ
but that may be just to get you on the comeback.
Putting those CDT image tweets as replacements is actually a great decision in my mind

thats the tweeters i was actually thinking of buying, the cdt ones, but are they a good match? i dont know?!

and yes, i've lived in pittsburgh my whole life and i guess ur trying to say ur tough cause ur from here? its not exactly the "steel city" anymore, kind of filled with yuppys now

08-29-2004, 10:53 PM
you know where to get these CDT tweeters right ;)
CDT also has tweeters that come with an attenuator in the same package

im from homewood, but say pittsburgh because people are like.. what??? if i say homewood

cant say homewood is yuppiness.. i believe the local PD had to get the FBI or some other task force involved in the past weeks because things got so bad they couldnt handle it

08-29-2004, 11:01 PM
homewood, is bad ...yea.. not saying theres no spots that arent bad its a big city man, im saying for the most part its not really anymore. isnt homewood where club empire is? my buddy was there like 2 weeks ago and there was a gang shooting or something after the Juvenile concert.

Are you talking about these? The Fronstage set from CDT?

08-29-2004, 11:08 PM
me ?, if it is no those are not what i mean

08-29-2004, 11:09 PM
Are you talking about these? The Fronstage set from CDT?
i didnt think it came with the crossovers, i basically jsut wanted tweeters, i thought u could get them off of thezeb.com, http://www.thezeb.com/detail.aspx?ID=6294 something like that.

08-29-2004, 11:11 PM
depression, tell him where to get them from ;)
this is what i meant.
If you think the zeb is cheap your in for a treat

08-29-2004, 11:11 PM
I meant Jtonsic..if he wanted those tweets as pelpacements..the Image FronT' set???

And and as everyone knows "ASK SUPA C" to hook you up if you wanna buy CDT
Supa C is to hooking up CDT's as Cypress hill is to weed!

08-29-2004, 11:13 PM
would they be a good replacement for the alpine tweets? im not sure if they have all the same stuff as the alpines.

08-29-2004, 11:14 PM

08-29-2004, 11:19 PM
Well I think they are awsome..I am not sure about "without" the crossovers..I think that is part of the SET UP..AND GET FROM SUPA C...PM him..he is a straight guy and many of the members have gone through him with Excellent reviews..He can take almost 50% off the prices on the site..Have you seen the site
