Factory Tweeters Question??

I have a 2012 King ranch with the factory sub,nav, xm and so on.... Has anyone replaced the factory tweeters in the rear doors or in the pods by the windows with aftermarket ones? What size are the factory ones?? And I was looking to keep the factory look by taking the old out and slipping the new in without any drilling or anything like that.

Good luck on that, 1" aftermarket tweeters will fit but need to b custom mounted front and rear. There are no direct drop in aftermarket tweeters.
I've installed some with just a hot glue gun, glued them into place where factory 1s were bolted at with great success.

I ran into those on my 08, so I unplugged those when I replaced my rear speakers with 2 way JL's. Unless your an audiophile just replace your factory speakers with 2 way's and you forget the factory tweeters.

2008 (Job 1) F250 King ranch 4x4, snow plow prep package with 2.5 level. Black Maxx, B&W Diehard platinums. Dieselsite coolant and transmission filters, NCU Motorsports/amsoil oil bypass kit. Turbo blankets, 5.5 PMF traction
Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

I'm an audiofile and my hertz Mille tweeters fit in the factory sail panels without too much hassle. No drilling, But it's definitely NOT direct drop in, but if your pretty handy it's not too bad at all And those tweeters are pretty hefty size wise
