    SLC's tweeters blew out, so what tweets to get?

    So yea i was driving to get my cd8455 installed then as i was driving to the local shop my tweets just went out . So i was wondering if you guys had any suggestions on some replacement tweets? i loved the way the rainbow tweets sounded so i would like something similar. thank you in advance.

    Just turn the HU off for a few seconds and turn it back on. Its somewhat common. What isnt too common is both tweets blowing at the same time...

    Re: SLC's tweeters blew out, so what tweets to get?

    ^ i found it very odd too. but i dunno the tweets seem not to work. Umm i didn't mention that after the tweets went off i got my deck installed. put on a cd and the tweets still didn't work. I have turned off the HU and number of times just to see if your idea worked and the tweeers still don't work. . Like i said earlier, i plugged in my stock tweeters and they worked. so i dunno. also the wires are connected so thats not the problem. so i dunno.

    anyways at least can you guys recommend me a nice set of tweets in case the rainbow tweets don't work?
