    Kicker, MTX, Pioneer, Kenwood, Infinity, are just to name a few decent companies that sell tweeters seperately. I'm sure many other decent brands have tweeters available too, but you should be able to find an affordable one out of these.

    this is unfortunately so much more complex than u might imagine, riven, as going the seperates route can cause ur systm to sound like crap if not done right. But if you're PATIENT, have a good ear, follow a few basics and are at least a little bit savvy, u will end up in car audio nirhvanna! Having sed that, I suggest u try first to stay w/ a tweeter that is a close efficiency match w/ your mid or full range driver (hopefully u have that covered). Location is everything, too, as ideally u want the tweeters to both be in close proximity to ur mid driver, and to be pointed at or near your ears. Once that's covered, I strongly urge u experiment with crossover-if you're like most users, u alredy have an active x-over unit; if you're a dinosaur like me and prefer passive components, I suggest you plop down 10-15$ for a variety of mylar capacitors, from around 1.5uf to 4.7 uF, then keep trying different values till u get it right, being mindful of power limits. As for what specific brands will give u what u need, there are a lotta good choices-try looking in th april 2000 issue of car stereo review if u can find one (buyer's guide issue, kind of a bible), or go to speakercity.com, or parts express.com...e-mail me if u need more 2cents worth, will be glad2help...

    You can actually use a set of aftermarket 3.5's as tweeters with exellent results. I use a pair of one way MTX 3.5s in my dash, they sound surprisingly realistic and don't "shreik" like some tweeters can.
