Average Customer Review(s):
Awesome tweeters. They sound amazing. I bought them to replace my existing factory ones and I don't have any regrets with choosing these.
Tried to install but found these Tweeters too small for the existing brackets. Need a kit I assume.
Pros: Still in the box
Cons: Need Installation brackets
Speakers look great, once I get them installed and have about a month to try them out you can send me another review request.
Pros: Look good
Cons: Don't work well in the box
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
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.
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.
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.
These tweeters were installed to upgrade from the factory tweeters. They installed easily into the dash with a little electricians tape after removing their 'housings'. They sound just fine
Pros: Easy to Install and sound good with a great price
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
Sound great very loud. Couldn't ask for more
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.
Pros: Clear sound
Cons: Not a lot of ways to install them due to the size.
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.
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 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.
The only thing I had an issue with was making my own mounts. With that though I focused each speaker towards the back seats more. Sounds awesome. Crisp and clean highs.
Pros: Possible mounting options. Very clean clear highs.
Cons: Had to fabricate mount. Very small size
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.
Pros: Great sound for the price
Great sound and speaker for money
Pros: Easy install Fit perfect
Install these on my 2005 Tacoma, and immediately noticed the difference. The sound in loud and clear. Easy to install.
Pros: Cost, and sound!
Great sounding speakers
Sound great. Hit the high notes perfectly. I also have Rockford Fosgate speakers and a Rockford Fosgate Subwoofer. All together make one complete sound. I love listening to music in my car.
Pros: Great highs. Easy installation.
Cons: Any interference and high buzz or ring plays loudly.
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.
Tweeters are ok, there are better ones out there.
Cons: Not as loud and clear, not easy to mount on dash factory location for tweeters.
Had them installed in my 2008 F150 and they sound great. Very happy with the purchase.
Sound amazing, but if I needed more than one set, I'm not sure I would spend this much money on them.
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.
Pros: Great full sound, east to install.
They worked amazing in my car! My speaker system is nearly complete after these amazing tweeters!
Pros: Amazing sound! Easy installation!
Cons: A little confusing to install at first but once you figured out, extremely easy
I put these small speakers. In my Chevy truck they made the sound just fell the cab. I was going to add an amp but now I Don't. Need to.
Pros: Big sound little size. Great for adding to existing system.
Cons: Have nothing bad to say!
These are a couple of great tweeters. They are connected to the factory amp that came with my Chevy Equinox and they sound really good.
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.
Cons: Everything about them.
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.
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
Really good inexpensive speakers with clean sound
Pros: attractive design inexpensive high quality
Great product, crisp sound. Easy to install. Fast shipping and smooth transaction
I have never heard a clearer sound than what these produce.
Pros: Several mounting options , sound great
Great tweeter upgrade. I can't believe that I didn't upgrade to these sooner. Very crisp and clear.
Pros: Great Sound. Easy install.
Cons: Had to do some mod work. Cut away all the plastic that held the old tweeters and then Epoxy these in their place.
This product has my vehicle sounding crisp and clear. I am very satisfied with this product and will look forward to purchase more in the near future.
Replaced stock tweets in my 06 xterra, and wow! What a difference! Definitely worth every penny! Thanks Crutchfield!..aloha
Pros: The price, free shipping to hawaii, easy step-by-step installation, & the sound of course...awesome
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
Great little tweeters!
very easy to install! easy hook up, and the sound is great! i like all types of music, and i already upgraded my speakers in my 05 mustang , but i just needed more. so i added these fosgate tweeters and they are the topping on the icecream! very clear!
Pros: great sound for the price! easy to install!
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.
WOW!~ Fantastic, Crisp and Directional!
Pros: Crisp and Directional!
Excelentes y emiten un sonido claro y de fidelidad. Los recomiendo.
Pros: Great and clear Sound. Recommend this tweeters
Cons: None. Ninguno
Very nice easy to install had to do a lil custom work but still simple.
Great sound from some tiny speakers.
Pros: Size and clarity
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.
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.
Exactly what i was looking for
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
EXECELLENT! WOW! For such a small tweeter the clarity is awesome! Price isn't bad either.
This is a great little speaker for a cheap price
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
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.
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.
These little tweeters rock to the Max. Great sound. Easy to install!!! Look great!
Great Value for the money. Perfect for the individual wanting good sound on a tight budget.

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

The crossover is integrated into the tweeter housing. I cannot find a way to remove that. However, you can connect them to an active crossover and if you need to, cut out more that everything below 2,500Hz. HTH! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul Sep 12, 2016 ] Staff

I recommend a crossover. [ Tina Sep 19, 2015 ]
No you don't need to install a crossover. You can wire directly to the door speakers. [ JEFFREY Feb 09, 2015 ]
yes you`dd want high pass filter to use 120HZ and up. check parts express. [ Denver IT Feb 08, 2015 ]
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 ]
