    How much more?

    EDIT: Looked em up, they are a bit much for what I'm looking for. For now I'm going to entertain offers for a little bit, and look. I'll come to you with my final choices, and we can see whats going on then. I would like to stay with Cdt. I've been considering the upstage system. Does that use four tweeters ,ran off of two channels and a crossover? It would disperse the power a bit, and help put the sound up on my dash if it works the way I think it does.

    can i pick and choose cdt tweeters, using the housing and crossovers? Or is it a package? Also, are the crossovers available seperately, if i chose to fab my own housing?

    Re: Tweeters

    Yes you can pick and choose. The xovers are sold separate but as a set its cheaper. You can just get a xover set that has the upstage option on them as well might be a better way to go

    I could use the crossovers with the upstage option, and only use it for the four tweeters? Would it affect the crossover points with there being no mid on it? I would prefer to leave my mids ran straight off of the amp.

    Re: Tweeters

    I just looked up some info, it looks like the upstage tweeter is simply toned tone a bit, instead of having a different xover point. Which is still cool, just not sure if its what i want to do. The only drawback it that it'll get pricy. I'll need two sets of tweeters, and the crossovers... I may have to stick to the og plan for now, and then pick up the xovers later. I do want to try that out.

    Re: Tweeters

    if you use the xovers that have the reg tweeter and upstage tweeter option ,you can use it with out the mid,doesnt change the xover points at all.like i said might be you best option ,then its only 1 xover per side
