    You dont hook them up you just mount them anywhere. Amplifiers can send wireless signals to tweeters

    Re: How do i hook up my tweeters.

    a standard component setup (tweeters and a midbass) with be wired into a crossover, which is then wired into to the headunit.

    When going active, its a completely different story (im guessing you wont be doing this).

    so, ya better hope there are two wires coming from your tweeter (positive and negative)

    Re: How do i hook up my tweeters.

    you should have a crossover with them if you bought them as a set.. if not you will run the tweeters to their own channel and set them up that way..

    Edit: i see you only have a two channel so if you don't have a crossover you will need one or another amp

    Hooking up tweets is simple, it should look something like this when your done.





    I would be a procrastinator, but I keep putting it off.

    what kind of speakers do you have? did these tweeters come with them? or did you buy them seperately?

    Re: How do i hook up my tweeters.

    some tweeters don't show enough impedence to bother with, but u can always just saddle with the front door speakers behind the radio. if you have an aftermarket cd/radio then chances are you'll have a wiring harness as well. hook the pos to the solid colors (white/gray) and the neg to the matching color with the stripe on it (white w/black stripe, gray w/black stripe.)
