Tweeter Placement.

To those who have added componenet speakers with tweeters, where are you mounting them. I would like to keep them in pillar where oem tweeters are located in my '11 with factory premium sound. Curious if anybody had taken oems out and put aftermarkets in. Tips and suggestions welcome thanks

have you changed anything out yet? I am adding the tweeters to my xlt and am wondering what the little jumper harness looks like and what the part number would be.

No I haven't, just started this thread last night curious if aftermarket teeeters can mount in the pillar. I did call a stereo shop earlier and he said shouldn't be a problem.

I have seen in threads that others have used the oem housing to mount aftermarket tweeters.

In theory, for best SQ, your Tweeter should be mounted as close as possible to the mid, but a lot of people prefer them up higher, and it's convenient to put them in the factory location.

Mine are down in the kick panels with my mids. Sometimes I do wonder how they would sound up higher. Use some regular strength double-sided tape to try them in a few different places, if you have that kind of patience. Don't use the strong tape or you might screw something up.
