    Tweeter help!

    So I just ordered 4 new tweeters with built in crossovers... I have 4 alpine type r 5.25's and 6x9's on a 4 channel... Now to the questions... Can I just mount and wire the tweeters to another 4 channel I have or should I wire them in with my other door speakers? I hope that's a somewhat clear explanation of what I'm asking.

    Re: Tweeter help!

    Whats the specs on the tweets.
    Honestly Id wire them to the separate amp that way you can control their volume levels independently of the other speakers i.e. separate gain settings in your case.



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"

    Re: Tweeter help!

    you can wire them in parallel with the other speakers, one per speaker. a 2 ohm high frequency load is trivial. that way fader and balance are maintained. a separate amp for separate level control is nice, but the same can be achieved with resistors.

    but why? two in front of you (aimed at you) is really all you need. do you already have hearing damage (serious question)?



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    I was originally ordering 2, but I got a good deal if I ordered another set... I wasn't gonna use all 4 just yet but it all depended on if I need to wire them in with my other speakers or put them on the seperate amp. I either thought about mounting them in the dash where the windshield meets the dash or on the a-pillar at the top corner of the windshield...

    that makes sense. dash corners is a great location.

    You know, I moved my tweets to the a pillars and i'm getting much better response than the dash location. Their 1". I'm leaving them their, more detail.

    i agree with you on that, but dash corners are a good starting point that is easy to work with. i also moved mine from the dash to the apillars then to spheres.

    What's the benefits of spheres

    reduced diffraction with spheres. diffraction causes what we hear as high frequency harshness.
