    Can I run these tweeters?

    My tweeters are garbage and want to replace them

    My current setup is Alpine Type S components.

    My amp is around 100x4 at 4ohms

    I was wondering if I can run these tweeters instead?

    Impedance: 2 Ohms
    Power Handling: 50 Watts RMS
    Power Handling: 150 Watts Peak with supplied crossover

    They probably won't work with those xovers, unless the orignal tweeters impedance was 2 ohms.


    That is of course if you are running passive.


    If you are running active you might be able to run them, but more details would be needed, such as an Fs, or rec. xover point/slope

    x2 on more info being needed.

    But i would try to find tweeters that have the same impedance as the mids, just to make life easier

    Re: Can I run these tweeters?

    Out of curiosity, what kind of tweeters are those and where did you find them?

    Why waste time upgrading tweeters on a cheap set like the Type-S? There are plenty of good comp sets out there for$150 or less (PG RSd for one).

    Here's a great replacement, or a start to a good upgrade. PacParts has the Alpine Type X tweeter, which is a rebadged Vifa XT19 small format tweeter. Very nice tweeter. They're $14.00 each on PacParts which is an insane deal for the quality.

    This link might work for you as well.

    Awesome tweeters. And at that price it's such a steal!
