    tweeter power

    i just bought my new head unit (pioneer 7800) and got a component set for the front, and two powerful mids for the back with a 4 channel amp. (no bass yet) and was wondering since im not using the 4 x 50 from the headunit if that power would be enough to run four little tweeters to keep up with the loud mids... or would you not hear it over the other speakers?

    Re: tweeter power

    tweeters don't need alot of power to get loud. i'm planning on running mine off the deck and my mids off a 2 channel amp.

    Re: tweeter power

    yea sounds good. i think im guna do the same. cause i dont think the two little tweeters off of the component set will be enough...but then again this is my first time with a decent component set so we'll see.

    Re: tweeter power

    cant imagine how that could image well....get the components and see if they are enough for you before you do this...

    Re: tweeter power

    also i see of my crossover for my component set there is an extra output for aux... could i put an extra tweeter on there if my amp has alittle more juice to spare? or would that make the components themselves less loud?

    Re: tweeter power

    i tried that with some extra tweets i had, the RMS on those were lik 65w (infinity silk domes), and off 13wrms from the deck they sounded like poo ...at least off my pioneer deck power they did. forunitly my crossover had a RAF (rear acoustic fill) output on the crossover to go with the tweet and midswoof. hooked me extra tweets to that and they sounded good (theyhad an inline capacitor for the crossover, i think the RAF is full range). the lil extra power they get from going that route made them sound ALOT better......thats my input
