Thank you for the input!! All I have to do now, is get the time to order them, and install :o

Alpine SPS-110TW Type-S 1

Thoughts on those by anyone that knows audio gear?

the mids and lows seem to be acceptable to me, but the high frequencies are lacking. So...Im wanting to start with the tweeters first. If this brings to light that the whole system truely sucks, then I'll cross that brige later.

Jma20a Take a measurement of the stock tweeters and compare them to the size of the ones you are looking to buy.

I'm not aware of a set that will fit into the holes that are left, though. You'll almost certainly be faced with the choice of either cutting the hole to be bigger to fit your replacements, or do like I did and fabricate wooden backing plates that mount inside the tombstones and to which you can affix a surface mounted tweeter.

I don't remember the wiring - I rewired the whole thing when I did my stereo - but it will either be spade connectors (standard fit for all speakers, one large and one small) or the Chrysler plug style, in which case you'll need an adapter (sold in pairs on all good websites, and many crap ones as well).

Audio Idiot....

....is a good title for my audio skillz. Ive searched, and cant seem to find the answers Im looking for....

First, I want to keep the stock system, but DO want to change out the tweeters. Im looking for a "drop In" pair, that requires little mods. Also.....HOW do you gain acess to the tweeters? Do you simply pull the cover off? Do I need to use Voodoo, or a Harry Potter stick? I would like a set that I can wire directly to the OEM wiring. Help?
