im gonna get some coaxials to replace my factory component set so that will leave the stock tweeter in there and i was wondering if they would be iigth just for something really cheap to replace the factory tweeters, r they very harsh?

Depending on the brand, they might not be too bad. Audax, Dayton Audio, etc all have some very cheap but fairly decent tweets. But I'd stay away from anything Walmart/Pawn Shop related

there is a guy selling some aura tweets for cheap in the classifieds, they sound awesome, I changed my silk cdt tweets out for these and IMO they sound better.

Please don't buy cheap tweeters. My friends do and it literally hurts my ears when I listen to songs with highs.
Thank you-Matt

They dont seem to be harsh to my ears, They just sounded alittle louder than the cdts w\ the same power xovers etc, probably due to them being !" vs 3\4". Im pretty impressed with them, I am giving the cdts to my g\f (she wouldnt know the differnce between quality and crap) Plus the aura come with a neat thing that acts like a grill for the speaker (sorta) and you can use that to mount the tweet to.

I sell the aura's guys :) If you have any questions email me anytime! They are actually almost a $200 retail set if you bought the domes back in 1999 haha! Dealer was around $110 with crossovers. I have the rings I am clearing out for $10 each per tweet and free shipping. They are an awsome sounding dome ready for custom install. I also have matching crossovers for them for $15 per crossover. I bought up a massive amount of aura gear for pennies when they stopped selling the mr stuff and sold.

With this deal, do not look at the price because if you spent $200 on this set of domes with crossovers you would be happy and at $50 for the set "but a little more work to mount them" you will be VERY happy!

many 'big' companies actually use 'rebranded' audax tweeters. a proffesional sound engineer i know bult a set of home speakers and included £50 a piece super tweeters, he later replacd the with £15 a pair audax and the sounded better. his set sounds like a £800 b&w speaker set.

you'll be suprised that many of the 'big' speaker companies don't manufacture speakers themselves!
