Default Tweeters

Hey guys,

I'm getting ready to buy a set of tweeters, and I was just wondering what is the best quality tweeters out there. I'm also wondering if anyone here has the tweeters with the LED lights.
I'm mainly buying them to plug up the 1" hole where the door cranks used to be. Hopefully it'll make my system sound better too.

Thanks in advance,

Brian

I have alpine component set with tweeters.
you wont get very good sound with them down that far.
They need to be up higher.

I actually have them on my door. Right by the dash. Just below the window.

Alpine makes good stuff.
I would look at manuf. websites to see what they offer in separate components.

i think that to be very useful tweeters need to be pointed strait at you and up higher than the middle of your door...

That is true. In the ranger there just are not a lot of options.

My alpine ones swivel so they can be pointed up they are not that far down on the door at all.

Putting tweeters in a Ranger is like putting a bullhorn on a hotwheels car. You're going to have waayyy too much high end sound and end up disconnecting them. Therefore wasting money, making you stupid.

Take my advice, don't take my advice.. I could really give a shit about how you waste your money. Btw, good luck finding tweeters from alpine without buying a component set with them.

Don't ask questions if you're not ready for answers.
