from Sounds Good, needs documentationSOUNDThese sound very nice. I installed them in a 2005 PT Cruiser in place of the factory dash mounted tweeters.Despite claims that they go down to 1.3kHz my calculations based on the component values in the high pass filter show a crossover point of 5.9kHz, significantly lower then the 12kHz crossover of the 24db/oct filter of Chrysler's stock tweeter. The increased upper mids and overall improved driver efficiency makes voice and music much clearer - removing the "mud" from the stock front speaker system. (one day I may tackle the rear speakers, but for now it's too much hassle)MOUNTINGHere's where the "needs documentation" comes in. There is none, not one bit. You get 2 speakers, 2 flush mounting rings (as shown together in the picture), 2 surface mounting rings, 2 copper brackets, 2 high pass filters, 2 double sided sticky pads (which appear to be for sticking the HP filters to something for mounting), 4 speed nut clips, and 4 screws.There is NO indication of how it all goes together however. I was mounting these to the factory speakers, so I removed the original driver and bored a 1-3/4" hole through the factory plate - screwed the flush mount rings to the plate using their screws - and then reinstalled the plates in the car, sticking the filter to the rear of the speaker using their sticky pads. How you would "surface mount" them I have no idea.An exploded view of the different mountings at the very least SHOULD be enclosed with them.If what I did sounds like something you would do, then have at them, they are great for the price. However, if the idea of "rolling your own" mounting is at all off-putting - move on to a less "economy" brand.

from Installed in my S-15 Sonoma, good enough.I measured these on and off-axis, flush and surface mounted. Surface mounted they have a huge spike in the 5-10K region. Flush mounted they have a suck-out just below 5K. Distortion rises pretty dramatically under 5K, but the included crossover (while extremely cheap and uber-low quality) addresses the distortion pretty well. Measurements found on this thread:http://techtalk.parts-express.com/showthread.php?p =1678402#post1678402I don't think you could design a better crossover for them, at least WRT component value but you could sub out a cheap mylar cap and 20awg coil from Erse audio, but then the price of the set would triple :)

from Value is an understatementPros:VALUE! These tweeters can certainly hold their own against much more expensive solutions in terms of audio quality. These make a great addition to an aging factory sound system without tweeters. Hands down the best upgrade dollar for dollar one can do.Cons:Very flimsy and all around cheap mounting hardware without instructions. If I was a true audiophile and spent hours each day in my car, I d probably look elsewhere. Also, the green Pyle Plus on the flush mounting hardware. WTH? I hit mine with 0000 steel wool and black plastic spray paint before installing them. Also, I used some adhesive (silicone caulk) on the inside of the door to hold everything in place. Like I said, the mounting hardware is CHEAP.Thoughts:I ditched the included crossover, which appeared to be a 12db @ 5000 Hz high pass filter. This was only because I was looking for a low cost solution (and I had some spare 470 uH inductors from work) and I wanted to make a true crossover network for my factory paper cone full ranges, and 470 uH inductors put the crossover frequency at 1350Hz 1st order butterworth. This is too low, but it still works. I used some cheap 30 uF caps for the high pass section, and for funsies threw in a 470 uF cap for a bass blocker on the woofer. 3000-5000Hz would be a much better crossover frequency, but I feel that a true crossover at 1350 Hz sounds better than running these in parallel with the 6.5 paper cone. The final result were crisp, clear highs, and tight bass and mid response. Not bad for a factory speaker and an uber cheap tweeter. I ll let someone else pay $300 for a component set at best buy that sounds the same. LOL.

from If you didnt knowThe best way to get clear and lasting output with tweeters is to use a filter at least 100w with .55 to 1.0uf and a non-inductive resistor. That adds a least two months to your tweeters if you running an amp over 600watts.
