    Play them WITH the coax's and you should notice a diff up top, but if you need more overall volume then get better speakers/more power...
    This was what I was beginning to think as well. Thanks for the answer

    Re: Bought set of tweeters, very quiet sound... are they blown/broken?

    Amp should be good for thst freq range as 4 channels are designed to run mids/highs usually. Audison is a higher end brand but u can normally find a good deal used. As most companies they have lower end lines on up to high dollar.
    Not sure on budget but most that run the ID ctx series rave about them. Also the jbl ms series i believe it is gets great reviews. If willing to spend over 2 or 250 then the options are wide open

    No, even a mediocre amp isn't going to do that. Stay tuned for component suggestions, lol. People love to suggest here... For what you want, maybe the infinity components would do you well. What amp are you using? You probably want more than 50 watts a channel If you're looking for louder highs. I know my old 40x4 wasn't cutting it.

    Re: Bought set of tweeters, very quiet sound... are they blown/broken?

    Mlstrass brings up a good point. With the 80prs im easily able to mute each rca out and its weird hearing how thin and tinny sounding tweeters are. Then when everythijg is playing together it sounds great

    I'm currently using a Rockford prime 300.. it's really worked great for me with the coaxials. In certain places in the car there are major quiet spots.. especially in the back combined with the road noise. I will probably just have to upgrade to a component set sometime soon.

    Are they 4 or 8 ohm tweets. You may only be getting like 3-5w @ 8 ohm from your head unit if that's what they are.

    They are connected to his amp. Being 8 ohms might have something to do with it, if that were the case.
    Also, what amp do you have OP?

    Man I wish i went with those LOL.. they look great. But in the meantime I don't have an amp to give them even the 40/50 that you suggest... I definitely will remember those though for my next setup..

    What 10's do you have, what amp do you hook up the tweets to and how many of the tweeters did your car need?
