Basics of Tweeters

It’s important that your car audio system is balanced.  Tweeters are perfect for playing high frequencies. The shape of the tweeter effects the sound.  Design is usually based on price and results.

There are several different types of tweeters.

Cone Shaped

Most factory or stock car audio systems include a cone shape as it is cost effective. Cone Tweeters are also common in home audio.

Dome/Semi Dome

A semi dome tweeter might be used when limited on space.  A dome speaker has better sound dispersion that a semi dome


Bullet tweeters have metal cones and domes making them more durable yet more expensive.

For best results, add an amplifier such as 4 channel to your front stage of your car audio system, including tweeters and mid bass.

Just like subwoofers and mid range, it is important to keep in mind what amplifier and impedence/ohm load you will be running before making a purchase.

Find the right balance between quality and budget.  Buying products that are cheap and not quality could result in replacement and expenses in the future.  Best Practice is to start right and not have to do anything twice.
