As a side note the ms8 built in amps at around 25w per channel could also drive the speakers at sufficient volume before I put the amps in. The amps do it better though

He's also got 100w on Tweeters.
I like my Music Loud, but at the MOST, going Active, I would put 50w to Tweeters. If it's not a Crazy Stereo, just Power them off the Front Speaker Outputs of the Headunit, that'll be Plenty.
If you still wanna Amp them, Look for a Small Amp around 35w per Channel, but that still might be too much for you, so just try them on the Headunit First.

well if he is going to run active then there is more info we need.
what are you using for front midrange drivers(dash speakers)
are you running the mids off the rear chanel?
what head unit do you have?
wat brand are the tweeters?
like i said before aiming can make all the differance.

|Kingcat||By having the tweeters mounted that way they are reflecting off the windshield and that may be causing an issue. I see most people mounting then by the door strap with good results. Also put the crossovers back in and play with location and aiming. This makes a big difference with sound.|

Yikes... do yourself a favor and don't listen to that friend anymore.
Like the others have said, you need that crossover there. Not only does it attenuate the tweeter level, making it easier on your ears, it also filters out low frequencies that will damage the tweeter if it tries to play them. Your amp probably has a highpass filter that ends somewhere around 200 htz,while the tweeters really can't handle anything lower than 2,000 htz. That huge gap of frequencies from 200 all the way up to 2,000 will do work on your tweeters and will certainly cause damage shortly.
Turn the amp's crossover off or to full pass, and wire that crossover back in there. Do you have midrange drivers too for the front channel, or is it just the tweeters?

Well now without the Crossovers on them, you are Running them active, so yea, they're going to be Louder.
With no Crossover on them, they're gonna Blow, just a matter of time.
So either Wait til that Happens, get some Mids that can Keep Up, take them Out, or get a Crossover on them with a -3db Attenuation and you'll be good.

|Texas2070||I cut them off because my friend told me it lowers the db even lower than the -6 on the tweeter. Which it did.|
|12-01-2012 08:35 PM|
|Tiburon||Do you still have the crossovers they came with? If u put them in between the amp and the tweeter There is a switch on the box that will drop the db level. May help a little.|

Here's where they are mounted. Remembered to take it while driving down the highway. Haha

Gain is turned all the way down already.
There mounted on top of the dash. Aimed straight up in the air. I'll upload a pic in a minute.

|eboven||Check your gain levels, you may need to turn them nearly all the way down depending on the pre-out voltage on your deck. If it's just too loud, the crossovers aren't the problem...|

|Kingcat||Were are they mounted? How are they aimed?|

Tweeters hurt my ears!
I installed some tweeters into my jeep a couple of months ago, and ever since they have been so high pitched that when I turn my music up to loud it destroys my ears. My dad has an older car with tweeters in his and they sound great. So I know what it's supposed to sound like but I just can't get mine there.
My Alpine PDX-V9 has a built in crossover but I'm beginning to think its shit. Anyone muscly inclined wanna help a fellow jeeper out!?
