    Re: Tweeters Question

    You are going to use a crossover with those tweeters, correct?

    Re: Tweeters Question

    certain speakers are made to see certain frequencies and this is what a crossover does. you don't want your tweeter seeing 100hz because it's just not designed to see that. If it does then you can kiss your tweeter goodbye. a crossover will basically tell what speaker sees what frequencies. do a search on passive and active crossovers.

    as for your components, did 2 lil boxes come with your mids and your tweeters? because if you bought a component set, it should have come with 2 boxes that are called passive crossovers.

    Re: Tweeters Question

    The simplest crossover is just a capacitor in series with the tweeter that keeps the low frequencies out of them. If a tweeter says built-in crossover that's what they have and you don't need anything else. The better quality tweets have more sophisticated crossovers that are enclosed in external boxes.

    What tweets were you looking at with the built-in crossover?

    lol. Those are good as stock tweeters in most cars.

    It'll work if you dont really need much.
