    WTF, Just.....WTF???

    So, I have 2 pairs of Alpine SPS-610C component sets running on a little alpine 45 x 4 amp, and after only a couple months 3 out of 4 of the tweeters are blown.

    I am wondering if I could replace the tweeters with a couple pairs of alpine tweets, like these:
    Alpine Electronics of America, Inc.


    or upgrade them with these:
    Alpine Electronics of America, Inc.

    I don't know how the impedance works with the component sets. The speaker and tweet together are 4 ohms. Not sure if they are 8 ohms to start with, or if the inducer coils and capacitor crossover deals change the impedance. With that, I don't know if I can just change the tweeter to another model.
    Or, would moving up to the R series be best:
    Alpine Electronics of America, Inc.

    Running this head if it matters :

    Any suggestions on this, women, or taxes would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Type S is very low end. You can drop whatever you want into the tweeter hole, likely won't be any worse than what you have, but I've been pretty impressed with the type R components for what they are if you like the Alpine product line.

    Before I bought these, I was seeing them all over ebay for sale, without the tweeters, just the 6.5 speakers for sale used. I bought these new, but I think I see why so many were being sold without tweeters, because the tweeters are straight trash. I know they are just average speakers as far as things go, but they worked well enough for their application, for what little time they worked. I don't want to keep putting s series tweets in if they are just going to be eaten up by the little amp, but don't want to pay double for a component set if I don't have to. The 6.5 is marked 4 Ω, the tweeter has no markings. Still not sure how the two pieces of the component set come together to be 4 Ω, or if I just buy a replacement tweeter that is sold as a 4Ω if it will change the overall resistance of the component set.
