Pyle PSN1165 4.35" Piezo Horn Tweeter Pair
I heard somewhere that piezoelectric tweeters don't really have an RMS power value, but only a peak power value. Is this true ? Will this speakers work well with a very low power, like 1 or 2W, or will I destroy my amp if I do that ?
I doubt they would destroy the amp. Piezo's are not like other drivers with magnets. They basically have wires that go directly to the element and it vibrates. So, they should be fine. I have driven them on 5 watts. They are very shrill compared to magnet drivers and I would not approach them with audiophile sound in mind. But that's my opinion. (IF someone wants a driver and can't hear above 10k Hrz, I usually use these as replacements.)

I hope you can tell me if these will work ok to replace a burned ones in a pair of cerwin vega V-12B cabinets they are the same size and they will be used for a dj, also could you please tell me how do I install the resistor,?
if the original tweeters are piezo like these ( no magnet) then you don't need to do anything but drop it right in and connect it. Th resistor should already be installed.

Need part number of recommended resister.
The part number we recommend for a piezo tweeter is 017-20.

The spec state these are 4-8 ohms. But they're piezos, so isn't that wrong? Confused...
These are piezo's so you are correct, the impedance does not matter. In this case Pyle is basically saying these will work with 4 or 8 ohm amplifiers.

These horns are alittle loud for my taste - How could I tone them down a couple of db without an Lpad?
In order to bring the volume level down an L-Pad will have to be used, although it does not have to be a variable L-Pad. You can use resistors to do this as well but the value will have to be changed in order to find the level you want.

Can i use these tweeters as vocal?
Im planning to use these in a car , 2 per door wire in 4 ohm with a two way crossover . I want to use the tweeter as vocal and leave straight mid bass for my other woofer if that possible ? thanks!
These will help with the upper registers of the vocal range but will not handle the whole range. The woofers will have to play up to 2,500 Hz or so and these will handle the harmonics and sibilance. If you plan on using these with a 2-way crossover, you will need to install an 8 or 4 ohm resistor in parallel with them so the crossover sees a resistive load. The value of the resistor depends on the crossover you use.
