    eBay Alpine

    Got these in a few days ago. Shipping took 2 weeks.
    Are they real? I donít know, they look real. From people that have real and these they canít tell the difference. They sure feel solid.
    Not bad for $40 shipped. Still donít know where they will stay, I donít have sail panels but I can get some made. The pillar isnít shaped right. They are ok where the hertz where but these are bigger. eBay Alpine-4c5f66eb-c9ef-4de4-9085-a418be4e3ae1.jpgeBay Alpine-cfcfef5b-db11-4ad4-9dbb-e48bb836f2e8.jpgeBay Alpine-1e1221f0-88aa-4c3f-be8b-21fb1e3965fc.jpg

    Re: eBay Alpine

    I never had the old ones so I canít compare. But there is nothing wrong with these. They do like to be a bit more on axis then I have them now so I got work to do.
    Best $40 set of tweeters out there for sure.

    Re: eBay Alpine

    Next is a new DSP and getting all my tuning tools again that I sold years ago.
    Then a new mid, probably the upcoming SI TM

    How long did they take from order to your hand? Isn't it a long time?

    Re: eBay Alpine

    Best $40 Iíve ever spent. I was worried Iíd have to retune with the different location and axis but they sound perfect. Luckily highs are more intensity then timing. Since I canít get into the MS-8 to change the tune anymore.

    The stage may have got a hair deeper but I canít tell 100%. Anyway Iím good for now.

    Have to glass them here eventually. Eyes do get pulled to them if you are looking for them but thatís typical. eBay Alpine-bf86a239-7494-439b-99f5-4047d9727b6d.jpg

    Re: eBay Alpine

    After beating on them all day Iím no longer worried about where they are crossed over.
    This is the best my car has ever sounded but I canít say itís all in these tweeters. Totally different location and axis from the 4x as expensive Hertz.
    But they do draw your attention. Iím going to cover them in grill cloth when the glass gets done. That will help I think.

    I lost a ton of power so I canít say. But itís loud enough and still very dynamic.
    I want to say a bit louder then the hertz but again, on axis is typically louder up top with the less roll off.
    I donít think they can be touched under $200 or even $400
