Clear, crisp, alive!

Matthew from Nashville, TN on 1/15/2018

1999 Chevrolet Tahoe
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Love Love Love Rockford Fosgate! Never had an issue with any of their products. These were no exception. I replaced the factory tweeters in the factory location (arm rest) of my 1998 Chevy Tahoe. Typically, a fair amount of modification is required, especially since most tweeter are now 1" or 2" rather than 3/4" factory. These were the easiest to date! Popped the factory out, lightly dremeled the outer edge of the tweeter hole, ran a light coat of adhesive around it and pressed the housing in. Done! Sounds great! Highs are crisp and clear! Now, for the rears and door mids!

Pros: Great price Sounds awesome Many different mounts included, options!

Cons: No Rockford Fosgate stickers anymore!

Great Upgrade from stock tweets ...

2007 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these in a 2007 F150 Supercrew FX2. My truck did not come from the factory with the upgraded stereo system. When removing the speaker grill on the door, you'll find that even though there were no tweeters present from the factory, there is a cutout in the door where they go. So I was able to install these Rockford Fosgates in the factory location and hide them behind the grill. I did not amplify these, but instead opted to run them straight from the radio's power. It was a good decision, as these little speakers are loud - and since they are producing the extreme high-end of the music, they can get "tinny" in sound, particularly at loud volumes. The speakers themselves appear to be well made and come with three different options for mounting, which I appreciated. These would be a great option for anyone who is unhappy with the lack of treble that comes with most factory stereo systems. Although some adjustments will most likely need to be made in your EQ settings as these little speakers could easily overpower if you typically run your system with the treble all the way up. All in all a very good quality product at a great price.

Pros: Price volume quality

Cons: Can be overpowering if not properly adjusted

Great tweeters!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these to replace the factory tweeters in my 08' Tundra dash corners. Took me less than 10 minutes to install after i cut out the new brackets that they came with. The sound is incredibly better and more crisp. They sound great paired with the Rockford Fosgate speakers i added in the front doors and even added a Pioneer dvd/cd head unit that powers them beautifully! I bought the scratch and dent deal since they wouldn't be seen under the factory screen. They was nothing missing or wrong with them and was $10 cheaper!

Pros: Clean sound, easy install, great price, great product

Cons: Nothing ive found yet.

High quality

Pros: Very great quality tweeters I did test them but not in the vehicle I purchased them for

Cons: Tweeters didn't come complete with brackets to fit to the vehicle without having to drill any holes or cut any wires although they did specify that there would be some cutting required for the wiring of the tweeters the having to cut and drill holes to make them fit the inside the door panels are the only reason why I didn't not give them five stars

Davin from Texas on 6/26/2017

2011 Honda Odyssey
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Cannot beat the price on these and the cross-over is built in. I put these into a 2011 Honda Odyssey EX-L. They came with the flush mount ring already present. It was a bit to pry these off because it is a snug fit. The factory Honda grills are 40 mm + or - so I used silicone to attach them. Honda does not give a whole lot of extra wire, so the wiring took the longest to do; especially on the Driver's side (trying to strip wire insulation with a razor blade....). The Posi-connectors work great for this when you don't have a lot of room to work. I gave myself about 8 inches of extra wire on each tweeter (each comes with 6 feet). It all easily tucked inside the dash. So far, the sound is much better than stock - 4 ohm vs. factory 6 ohm.

Pros: Fairly small, great price, built-in crossover.

Cons: None from the speaker or Crutchfield, but Honda.....

Amazing Sound and Value

Bought these to replace my son's factory tweeters on his Xterra. They are way better than i thought they would be. Super clear and loud. Pair very well with his Kenwood head unit. For the price don't think you can find better.

Pros: Amazing clarity for the price

Cons: none

Bought these to replace factory tweeters. Big difference in sound of course. Easy to hook up...just spice into factory harness. Seems though that they are supposed to be part of a component system.

Pros: Excellent highs come out of these little tweeters...they are very noticeable. Fit easily in my 2012 Elantra workout any glue or tape!

Cons: Grills don't come off.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound, helps a bunch to add more clarity to my sound w/ my 12" sub so that the highs aren't so drowned out from the sub. The only issue I have is that the tweeters were not sent with any other way to screw them down other than using the screw holes at the base of the plastic housing, I was expecting the option to use screws around flush plastic housing.

Pros: Better than stock

Cons: Needs additional power....

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Phenomenal tweeters. The 2.5" factory dash speakers in my 2011 Hyundai Sonata were atrocious, and these tweeters were exactly what the system needed. Crystal clear highs. Not even going to need to replace the door speakers (for now). Incredible value. I was afraid that without any amplification these tweeters would start to get sloppy at high volumes, but they do just the opposite. Just ordered some universal backstraps and these fit perfectly.

Pros: Amazing sound for the price, don't need amp to make them sound good

Cons: None

Good crisp sound

With the stock speakers essentially 4 mid range woofers, the addition of these tweeters has transformed the Subaru's sound system. Great speakers!

Pros: Wide frequency response. Good Price.

Cons: No useful instructions

AmeriSAbrit from Ormond Beach, FL on 9/11/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These tweeters are a great sound upgrade over stock, but you need to get creative to fit them in the 2014 Jeep JK Sport dash pods which is why I didn't give them 5 Stars.

Pros: Great clear, crisp sound over stock

Cons: These are not a simple plug 'n play upgrade on the 2014 Jeep JK Sport. I didn't use any of the housing or face plate which came with speakers. I did however use the stock face plates but had to zip tie the speakers into them using the three tabs on stock face plate.

Did not work well for me.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Weak and fuzzy. I got a replacement pair of the same tweeters that were also weak and fuzzy. I plugged another speaker in and it worked just fine. Not sure what the deal was. Wish I could say it was something else, and maybe it was the high pass filters or something, but I had no way to test without, so sadly not a good rating from me. Just ordered some of the kicker cst20's to try. Hoping for better.



Solid economical twitter to replace factory speaker

Glenn D from Atlanta, GA on 7/27/2016

2016 Acura ILX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very economical tweeter from a reputable manufacturer. Not the most expensive (purchased for $35/pair), but a solid investment. Purchased to replace a factory pair of tweeters, and they do the job well. Installation was a snap for the most part, although I had to trim the flanges where the factory tweeter "locked" in. Used the Rockford Fosgate grills and trim ring, and they look fantastic, and have a slight swivel that you can optimally point the speaker once installed. Sound is great for an economical pair of speakers, and was a worthwhile investment.

Pros: Great item for the price of admission, better than factory speakers, nice-looking, even in an upscale automobile.

Cons: None

Good and affordable upgrade from the OEM tweeters

Cons: none

Payce from Marble Falls, TX on 7/20/2016

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

In my 03, I officially have all RF components: Amp, Subs, and component sets of RF 6.5". After about 3 years of just blaring my music I finally sent the tweeters in the front to distortion but purchased a new set (with crutchfield rewards program) so I can't complain about the setup. I do wish they offered these in a shallow mount format, but I made due. Awesome when paired with a component 6.5".

Pros: Can stand years of abuse With the right speakers, matches level of my sub

Cons: No shallow mount format

I love this product even over my stock Bose (which sounded amazing). These speakers are crystal clear and have no distortion. Someone needs to invent tweeter adapters.

Aaron from Vero beach, FL on 4/23/2016

1998 Dodge Dakota
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you're looking to build a performance set up that plays loud then this will sound harsh. But for everyday use listening to the radio at normal volume levels it performs great. Not harsh. Clear sound. And for the price I can't complain. Keep in mind you'll need to custom make a mount set up for stock applications. Aftermarket set up's, the provided case should work fine.

Pros: Clear, great sound, cost effective.

Cons: Harsh at louder than normal sound levels. Not a simple plug and okay set up. Modifications might be required.

Great price great high end sound

Leo from San Ramon, CA on 4/11/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Tiny unit, must install with straps for corner dash mounting. Soldering to OEM harness recommended. Could be a hard install if not handy with soldering and basic electronic skills. Sound quality is really good, great improvement over OEM tweeters.

Pros: Sound quality, price, compact size.

Cons: Install is not easy for technically challenged.

Decent sound

An Onymous from Barre, VT on 4/2/2016

2004 Toyota 4Runner
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Decent sounding tweeters. Did not notice a huge improvement over factory, but I am powering them from the stock head unit. For my particular vehicle an additional mounting bracket was required but not provided. Not sure that one exists. I was able to easily rig something up to keep them in place. Overall, I'd say they are a decent, reasonably priced solution.

Pros: The price is right. They are self contained, easily mountable anywhere you want them.

Cons: May require some custom fabrication of mounting brackets.

I purchased these speakers to replace a blown tweeter on my 2010 Toyota Tacoma. Overall they are OK, but I think the original JBL tweeters had a little warmer sound and seemed less "harsh" sounding than these. I purchased these based on the the other customer ratings, which were very good but to me these speakers sound just average. Also, if you purchase these, make sure to get back straps to mount them.

Great tweeters for the price, (replaced center dash speaker) sound is clear and much better than OEM cheap speakers. Custom installation was required and no instructions or even ideas on how to install them are provided, even with the correct harnesses I had to split/ cut the wires and figure out how to mount it.

Cons: Installation

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I just added these to my NSX, which has the OEM Bose sound system, but the head unit is retrofitted with the guts from a Clarion marine unit. These are nice, well-made tweeters, especially for the price. Not only do they include an angle-mount base, but the tweeters also swivel within their main mount, so they are even further aim-able. Nice feature!

Pros: Great value, great quality, great features.

Cons: None

I installed these in the window panel of my Ford Escape. I had previously installed Rockford Fosgate speakers in the lower door panels, but the location needed help. Adding the tweeters in the upper part of the door in the window panel really filled out the sound field.

Pretty horrible. Got these to replace the tweeters in my dash and they hardly make any sound at all. With the volume up they just buzz and can't distinguish any sounds. Better off without them. Maybe they sound better in a component system but I doubt it.

Pros: None!

Cons: Everything about them.

Great tweeters!

Ben B from Michigan on 9/14/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wired these into the stock tweeter locations in my dashboard and they vastly improve my stock stereo! I was thinking about redoing the whole system, but with the tweeters I might just live with the stock setup for a while. Vocals sound crisp and in front of me instead of underneath, cymbals and high pitches sound a lot more focused and clear. Best $50 you'll ever spend on your car stereo.



Excellent product. Very pleased.

Keith from Ferndale, wa on 9/6/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these tweeters for a stock replacement of the dash tweeters in my 2014 Xterra. It wasn't an exact match, so I had to fabricate a bracket. Very simple. They are currently running off stock watts and sound great. They add the perfect highs I was looking for. I recommend these speakers to anyone.

Pros: Excellent sound Easy install Durable

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

2007-2013 Jeep Wranglers have tweeters mounted in small "tombstone" mounts on top of the dash. Mine were stolen for some reason so I bought replacement mounts and then decided to try an upgraded tweeter. I had to cut away the inside of the mounts to install these larger tweeters but it was easy and it looks great! Oh and they sound great too!!

Pros: Good price and good sound

Cons: None

Installation was ok but had to do a custom installation had to splice wires for a '03 Vibe GT. Now I hear engine whine through tweeters. Wish I had a custom harness for tweeter.

Pros: Easy installation

Cons: Need custom harness.

Rockford Prime R165X3 6.5" 3-Way Speaker

Ahmed from Chicago, IL on 4/18/2013

These speakers sound sooo great very clear with bass. I had to replace my stock rear deck speakers and they sound soo loud and good. My stock speakers I had to crank the volume to 25 now i crank them to 5-9. My next step is to purchase the same ones for the front doors. The setup is so easy its a plug n play which crutchfield adds the wiring harness automaticly to your cart.

Pros: Easy plug n play with the free wire harness that comes with the speakers free. Price is great for those speakers.


Exactly as I expected

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am by no means one of those hardcore audio enthusiasts. I didn't want not expect the most amazing quality, merely to fill in some "dead space". This product was received quickly and was well packaged. The tweeters came with multiple mounting options along with clear and concise instructions for installation. They perform well hitting good highs and distort very little if at all. If your looking to increase clarity and/or fill dead space these are a great option.

Pros: Attractive price. Low key design blends well with interior. Multiple mounting options. Clear instructions for installation.

Cons: None noted.

Great for the money

Exactly what i was looking for




stephen from Blackfoot, ID on 11/1/2012

Always been a rockford and Crutchfield fan and i hate to write a negative review . But Im very dissapointed i mounted these tweeters in the door of my 2002 chevy and They sounded AMAZING!!! Very clear and very loud. But i am yet to figure out why they only lasted me 3 days. And yes they are running through their own crossover off a kenwood HU????

Pros: Great clear sound

Cons: Rockford Fosgate failed with the Prime series

These Tweeters Rock!

This is a great little speaker for a cheap price




Matt C from Nokomis, IL on 6/21/2011

great purchase. if youre looking for tweeters that put out great crisp, clean highs, these are the ones for you! i mounted mine right into my dash and pointed them at my drivers seat, and man does my music sound better. i listen to alot of bassy rap, but the highs are much clearer now that i bought these. HIGHLY recommended



These are KILLER!

Tom from Chicago, IL on 6/15/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought a pair of these a few weeks ago and just got around to dropping them in my door panels this afternoon. Pretty straightforward installation once I had the door panels removed and cut the holes out. I mounted these in the front doors of my 1994 Ford Ranger XLT and connected them directed to a front pair of RF 6x8 Prime speakers in the doors and the improvement in overall sound was immediate. The sound stage expanded tremendously, the upper end became much cleaner, crisper and detailed, and that brought a grin from ear to ear. My system is really pretty modest, I have an Alpine AM/FM CD Receiver and a 2nd pair of 6x8's in the rear along with a Powered Sub and a couple of smaller amplifiers and together it ROCKS enough for a 50 year old that wants to recall the days of his youth without attracting a lot of unwanted attention.



Rockford Fosgate Prime R1T-S

oddsnends808 from Honolulu, Hawaii on 3/24/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have no idea what tweeters these replaced (newly purchased used truck), one tweeter was dead. But, after changing the tweeters out for the pair of Rockford Fosgate Prime R1T-S I can't believe the difference. Just changing the blown one out I could hear the difference in sound between the two different tweeters. After replacing both tweeters and testing the R1T-S, these give crisp, clear and much brighter highs. They were easy to install and are a bargain at these prices! Brought my sound system up to a whole new level.

The Honda Accord Coupe 2009 (7 speaker install) has awful front door tweeters.

You can wire them direct! [ JONAS  Feb 06, 2015 ]
I would recommend using a crossover, Simply because they direct the proper Frequency to the tweeter usually 2000Hz/20,000Hz and woofer also known as Midrange typically 300Hz/5000Hz.In line between Head unit/source and speakers. Front or Rear channel. Your ears and friends will like what they hear With a crossover Installed. Michael [ Michael  Feb 06, 2015 ]
You can wire them directly to the factory wiring. No crossover is needed. [ MATTHEW A  Feb 06, 2015 ]
