A big splash
If you haven't heard of Audiofrog yet, here's what you need to know – there's no one like them. We know, because we put their speakers to the test, side by side with some of the most celebrated car speakers in car audio. Track after track, with music that spanned many genres, Audiofrog's speakers made our jaws drop.
It's no coincidence. Audiofrog was founded by car audio veterans, who have been on the front lines of audio innovation for 30 years and have a rich, colorful history of crafting award-winning, custom car installations. Drawing on that substantial experience and their practical knowledge of what makes a great speaker, Audiofrog has created a no-nonsense, high-quality car audio line. While their speakers will fit into a large number of vehicles, Audiofrog's emphasis is definitely on custom installations.
Audiofrog provides versatile mounting solutions for flush and behind-the-panel installation.
The toughest tweeters in town
Audiofrog's GB10 1" tweeter sits in your palm with the weight of a stone -- there's not one plastic part in this speaker. Cast zinc housing protects the polyester soft dome, which delivers impressive performance that's as lush and nuanced as live sound. A copper polepiece cap helps extend frequency response and reduce distortion, making this tweeter a tough one to beat.
Such an efficient design puts the GB10 near the top of its class in the realm of power handling, with a rating of up to 100 watts RMS. Add in Audiofrog's grueling standards for real world speaker testing, and you can trust that the GB10 will live a very long life in your car.
Built for custom installations
Audiofrog was founded by experienced installers, who know all the pitfalls and shortcuts of tweeter installation. The all-metal finish of the GB10's removable ring and tray can be polished, painted or upholstered, depending on your vision for your interior. The grilles are ideal for painting as well.
With this tweeter's unique metal mounting bracket, you'll find custom fabrication of pillar and sail panel pods much easier. The bracket's versatile straps provide for numerous installation scenarios as well. Without the mounting bracket, the GB10 will fit a standard sawhole cut. Audiofrog's unique spring and nut design for flush-mounting allows you to dial in the speaker's depth for the snuggest fit possible. Any way you install it, this versatile tweeter gives you the potential to gain the widest possible soundstage for total musical immersion.

Audiofrog GB10 reviews
WOW, i never write a review but had to with this, worth every penny. the sounds that come from this small thing is incredible. NOT HARSH, loud and so accurate. It makes me want to buy only audiofrog for the future, will pull these out if i ever change vehicles. box came with plenty of accessories for install, but didn't need it. Installed into 2019 Dodge Durango fairly easily with some mods to the sail panel and added a capacitor to protect them. Running off of the stock alpine amp and sounds great, I can only imagine the sound quality with a more high quality custom build. i had some sub 100 dollar tweeters that improved sound quality (but harsh). The GB10s have COMPLETELY changed/improved the feel of the sound stage in my car. i just want to sit in my car to watch movies, listen to music as i type this.
Pros: beautiful build quality. sounds amazing, worth it....You get what you pay for.
Cons: if you have the funds, get it.

I have tried so many different tweeters in my three vehicles and now have these and the GB15 in my other vehicle. All I can say is I'm blown away by the realism and detail they have added to by full active system. They make my music sound real! I didn't even think a tweeter contributed so much to the music until I bought these. I have these paired up with some JL C5 mids and a set of GB15 with the GB60 in my other vehicle. My search is over for the perfect tweeter.
Pros: Phenomenal sound and clarity. Awesome installation accessories.
Cons: Only the price but you get what you pay for.

What an amazing product. I wouldn't expected this product to make such difference in my car. The Highs sound phenomenal compared to my factory Lexus' Pioneer tweeters ;Crisp and Clear without being harsh on the ears. I'm so happy with the upgrade. FYI: I'm not even running these tweeters with an amplifier...for now.
Pros: Pure Audiophile Tweeters.
Cons: Can be Pricey.

Fantastic tweeters! I purchased them for me 2011 Grand Cherokee and they fit the factory sail panel with an almost factory look with a little shaving of the I.D. of the hole. They mate perfectly with my GB60 midbass drivers in the lower door location crossed over at 2500hz 24db slope. Very detailed even at high listening levels. While I didnt use any of the provided installation accessories, the fact that they are provided to suit any installation needs for very cool.

Awesome tweeters for the money! Very detailed and very well designed and built. I have them in my a pillars on my Jetta powered by the stock amp. Though underpowered for the moment I can hear the details of each song with a lot of clarity vs the stock fender system. These fit nicely as well without much fuss or mangling. Simply remove the original tweeters and get these in there and fasten however you wish. these tweeters aren't harness or dull. Not too bright but just perfect.
Pros: Build quality and detailed. Not harsh or too bright. A good balance between clarity and brightness. Standard size makes these a simple install.
Cons: A lil pricey.

Great resolution tweeters, use them with 8.2 microfarad cross over cap in the corner of my WRX 2017. They are installed with GS62 Audio frogs in the door with the standard head unit. For installation, bend the installation brackets slightly upwards so the tweeter is deeper in the cavity, now you can use the original gril, you can also scrape a little plastic away from the grill inside and all fits perfect. I also used some dynaliner around the speaker to reduce reflections. Highly recommended, super resolution no harsh metalish sound. Cymbals sound natural, violins sound super.
Pros: Great sound Lots of installation hardware
Cons: Flimsy contacts.

When I first received the package I was a little awe struck. Since when did car audio companies pay so much attention to installation accessories? I can't tell you how much simpler it is to mount these tweeters with the options provided vs finding your way through DIY. Anyways, how do they sound? Laid back and in your face? I've never heard a tweeter sound so smooth or get as kid without becoming harsh. I only have then powered off 20 watts and crossed at 3.5KHz with 24db slopes. But I'm certain nobody would ever know otherwise. These are hands down the most detailed tweeters I've heard without mentioning home audio. They're mounted off axis in my pillars paired with the GB25, GB60, and GB10D4. This is truly a monster setup. After messing with these I have no doubt they could easily play at 2.5KHz with 24db slopes to match very well with a 6.5" woofer. However, I'd only go this route on my way to an eventual 3-way setup. I'd stick with the GB15 if your heart is set on 2-way and I'm positive you wouldn't be missing out. I'd only skew one way or the other based on locations and install priorities.
Pros: Power handling Smooth Extremely detailed without being harsh Installation optionsoptions(easily hidden in stock locations Understated looks
Cons: Allen head screws used throughout.... They're very small and the provided tools rounds out easily.
