    You don't need them, it's all personal preference. Some people prefer the sound of tweeters, some people prefer the sound of horns. Also, horns can be touchy, and if not installed/tuned properly will yield poor results.

    http://forums.caraudio.com/vb/showth...ighlight=horns <--- scroll down to post #14, I had a quick "little" write-up about horns.

    Horns are good.

    And then you install them and curse them for hours.

    Then they become good again unless you have no EQ or put 100W on them and your head explodes.

    I shouldn't have gotten rid of mine




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    horns are easy if you know the basics. take your time and install them good solid then the rest is tweeky weeky lol. only draw back to horns is space in some vehicles make it hard to install them or if the car seats real low and has a huge drawn out center consol then you gotta use mini horns(they disperse outward farther to get around these obsticles) the next time i do a horn set up im either going usd super a or making my own (going against the grain too by using a super hot driver)
