I have something a little cheaper for ya. I mounted my horn tweeters in the center air ducts, I glued them in there and they work great. Plus they are hidden and protected. Just a thought.

those don't get too hot in there??? it looks damn good. I would just be worried about how hot they get when I'm runnin the heater...

one more question for yall how do tweeters hook up to the deck? I know how to do the speakers but have no idea about how to run tweeters.

thanks for the pics again Taz

Look closly at the close up picture, they are glued in with silicon sealent and I coated the back of them with the sealent as well so to resist some of the heat. Plus the tweeters are in a plastic housing so they should be fine.

Just tie them into the regular speaker connections, that is all i did.

The tweeters should have some sort of x-over or capacitor to block out all the low end frequency.

This was a very easy upgrade, took me about 30 minutes to do. As you can see the wiring comes towards the front and then back to the head unit. Very easy install.

I just want to make sure that I hook up the tweeters to the right wires. I installed my sound bar myself I should be able to figure this out right?

Easier than a sound bar, and a lot less wires...

Just as an FYI, I would say 99.9% of any set of tweeters you buy should have a x-over or at least some sort of capacitor with them. If you are looking to save a little money (don't laugh, they work great), go to Wal-mart and get one of their $15 - $20 set of tweeters. I have them in my truck, my wife's car, and my Jeep.

So..lookie there we have saved you $79. If you would have ordered the set up from Qtec at $99.00 plus somewhere around $10 for shipping, I think this thread has done some good.

It goes up on the first day the Christmas Story is played on TV, which this year was the day after thanksgiving, and it goes into storage with the holiday decorations.
