    Icon8 Well shlt... I guess some suggestions please

    Well, yeah.. No tweeters, and that really doesn't sound to good.

    So.. I'm not sure if I also need to replace my crossovers or what..

    I don't think I'm in the position to spend 100$ on a new set or anything..

    SO.. Some decent tweeters to go with my PG RSD mids/ crossovers?

    or is mixing and matching bad?

    Hey.. Can anyone comment? please??

    I would like to know, if. Or how I can test if my crossover is blown as well as my tweeter.

    And some recommendations for tweeters!

    THanks.

    Crossovers are basic R/L/C circuits. It would take a lot to blow them. To test, hook up more tweeters. Wal-Mart sells crappy generic sets for $10...

    Eh.. I think i'll buy the tweeters I WANT, and use that as a Test..

    I can always wait.. I'd rather wait then waste money. (really don't have any to spare, but this is "necessary"

    I have some Power Acoustik NB-2 tweeters with my RSD mids, and they sound good. They are brighter than the RSD tweets though, not really my style. I am still looking for a better set also.

    I am actually looking for another set of RSD mids, if you want to sell them and buy another comp set let me know. I would be willing to take them off your hands for the right price.

    The Seas Neo Aluminums seem to be a popular choice. I would also grab an external crossover as well.

    Yes. As far as the crossover... if your staying on a budget then Coustic makes one for like fifty bucks on ebay.

    Not new. You can try DIYMA and see if you can score some used ones. There is also a Blaupunkt tweeter I see recomended every once in a while.. and IIRC they were pretty cheap.

    High-order crossovers can blow pretty easily if you run them without a tweeter attached.

    the 5.25"s would actually fit good in my kicks, and then ill run my 6.5"s in the doors. If you do decide to let them go PM me.

    are both sides not working?

    you can use any type of speaker to see if the tweet out on the crossover is working

    if you have a mid it will work well enough to let you know if the tweet is blown or if the crossover is bad
