Tweeters get installed almost like any other speaker. you pick a mounting spot, then mount them, or cut the hole for recessed tweeters, etc. run the wire to the closest speaker wire from your stereo, and just splice it in. you will however need some kind of crossover to prevent the low frequencies from being played through the tweeters. if you buy new tweets, they usually come with their own crossover, or there are a few different styles you can get.there are the passive crossovers, the ones that look like small boxes. there are also the inline filters. these are the ones that you splice into the positive speaker wire to filter out the low frequencies. and some aftermarket stereos come with some kind of filter or equalizer built in, depending on your model. what I would do is buy one of the inline filters for each tweeter. theyre inexpensive, and easy to install, and they work great. so basically, just mount the tweeter, run its wires to an existing speaker wire and splice it in, and install an inline filter on the positive wire for the tweeter. oh, one last thing. if your interior speakers are powered by an amplifier and not by the stereo, then just run the tweeter wire to the speaker outputs on the back of the stereo. too much power will definitely destroy any tweeter. good luck!

Hello georgesverme,

I'd recommend starting with the local importer of Wharfdale products to see if they have exact replacement tweeters for sale. Contact:
Bob Springston, Sound Import, LLC
Phone: (508) 422-9788
Email: sales@soundimport.com

If you are unable to get tweeters from them, see if they will recommend a replacement or at the very least, provide you with the specifications, including the impedance, crossover point,frequency response, and power handling capability. If they won't or can't provide the information, then you are on you own. You'll want a relatively high-quality product, most likely 8ohm (but could be 16), crossover between 5-8KHz, frequency response from crossover to infinity (or at least beyond the range of human hearing).

Then try www.partsexpress.com. They have a large selections of speaker building products and carry small tweeters like yours in several brands, price ranges, and quality levels. Vifa is excellent. Tang Band is good. Goldwood is acceptable for entry-level speakers.

Hope this helps.

Tweeters poked to death


I know this sounds silly, but I had the same problem. Your speakers have a little plastic bulb that has been pushed in, right?

If so, simply put your mouth up to the tweeter, seal with your lips and **** gently (seriously). The tweeter dome should pop back out and in to shape.

It worked for me.

Good luck.

Hifonics AS5.5Ci tweeter soldering !


Because they are tweeters, and only 4 months old. take them back for warranty. Most manufacturers will give 6-12 months.

Car stereo crossovers


you should be able to remove the passive in-line crossover, but since it is blocking everything below 3500 hz, there is no need. leaving the passive crossover in place will also help protect the tweeters if something fails in your setup as any amped frequency below 3500 can seriously damage them.
