Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Piezo Tweetersthat claim that you don't a crossover for Piezo Tweeters. However their sound is horrible. to get great sound with minimal parts add a 4.7uf cap on the positive lead and shunt a 8 ohm resistor on the positive and negative lead after the cap. it will actually sound like a tweeter now
