Features

Tweeter Mounting: The tweeters offer multiple mounting options; choose a flush mount, surface mount, or angled surface mount. The tweeters are shipped in the flush mount housings and the angled surface mount housings are included. The back of the flush mount housing and the top of the angled surface mount housing combine to create the (non-angled) surface mount housing. Once installed in any of the housings, the tweeter will pivot slightly to optimize imaging.

Crossover: The crossover's inputs and outputs are screw terminals that will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315" wide.

Customer Q&A

7 questions already asked

Q
The reported frequency response range of 94-20kHz seems narrow compared to competitors, i.e., 94 is higher. Is this just the range for the 5 1/4 or does it include the range of the tweeters? You'd think separate component tweeters would really extend the range for a quality company's speakers. But I can't find a separate response frequency for those.
[ Keith  May 26, 2022 ]

A
That is the total frequency response for this component set. This set and most component sets focus primarily on the mids and highs. For more bass you'd really want to consider a subwoofer as most full range speakers don't produce a ton of bass.

Q
What size amp would be recommend for this set?

Welll there buddy. These banging little speakers sound crisp and real dang clean compared to the 600+$ focals that were in my truck before. They're 50RMS and 100 at they're max. I run them on a 125×2 kicker amp along side a Memphis 300 watt amp feeding the DD 8 I have. I could not be happier with the sound. I do need one more set for the back doors and going to add another sub. And I will be going with the Memphis PR'S????????????

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.

Q
Will the tweeters that come in this package fit into my mach 460 system in a 2001 ford mustang?

You can check to see if this will fit your vehicle by using our Outfit My Car tool: http://www.crutchfield.com/car/carselector.aspx For additional details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle.

Not sure about your mustang but they do come with multiple backings and can be completely removed from there casing without damaging. Can you post a picture of your current tweeters ?
[ Broderick  Aug 24, 2019 ]
Q
Do I need an amp for this system?
[ Doom120406  Oct 23, 2017 ]
4 answers
A
No you do not you can use an amp but you don't need it for them to work
[ Christopher R.  Oct 23, 2017 ]
A
These speakers could run off of the built in amplifier from an aftermarket head unit, but you would be better served using a separate amplifier dedicated for the door speakers themselves.
[ Christopher  Oct 23, 2017 ]
A
No, you can hook it into any system. But it will sound best with more wattage than a standard receiver will supply
[ Levi david  Oct 23, 2017 ]
A
No, but for the best possible sound it couldn't hurt. I have mine running off the stock bose amp in the car and it only pushes 25 watts per along with the other 27 watts from the deck. They sound amazing.
