    Onkyo 6 ohm tweeters

    It's cool to run more than 4 ohms on a 4 ohm deck, right? I plugged in some Onkyo tweeters I got in place of the factory monsoon stuff and it sounds great, really ups the level of the stereo even with respect to RF tweeters I had and they don't sound silky, like my alpine tweeters used to be but they are louder. Even at 6 ohms. I got them for cheap and glued them in under the tweeter grilles in my Trans Am and it seems to be working out well, there is even a plug that comes with the tweeter that I think would work with the stock Monsoon system, but of course you'd have to cutup your stock harness to get the cap in line.

    I've got them crossed at about 4k and they sound really good but I think I'm going to try switching to 8k and see how that sounds. Anyway I got a bunch of these and I'll sell 2 tweeters and 2 capacitors for $10+ shipping if anybody else wants to give this a try.

    Yeah, did the swap just now and it sounds cleaner. 8k ftw. Pics to come!
