Ideally you want the tweeters as close to the woofers as possible.


exactly, having them too far apart means you hear the sound coming from different directions
sounds much better if both high and mid/low appears to be coming from the same sound source.


On the contrary, when fitting splits its recommended that a distance of 50cm from the woofer is ideal. thats the whole point of splits. If you're gonna place them on top of the woofer or right next to it, just get some good 2 ways.

Oh here we go two different opinions, whos right and whos wrong LOL.

I would of thought keeping the distance to where the factory splits are in the EF XR's would be fine.

I mean with the dash mat covering them ne way its not like its producing 100% of its sound onto the windscreen should still sound very nice, if you get what i mean.

what i don't quite understand is how firing onto the windscreen can make it have more treble than having the speaker firing directly at you?

how does the windscreen produce the treble because i'm sure the tweeter isn't any different!

the windscreen reflects the sound directly at you, at around head levelish, whereas the woofer is down lower, so you can hear the treble over the midrange.

im always of the opinion that your tweeters should be around 30cm or so from the woofer
any closer and you might as well go 2 or 3 ways, but further away and i feel it starts to sound funny.

Yeah i sortta get what ya mean, With my HU thou i can change the power output of the high freq ne way. It still sounds good when its changed but the treble is just toned down a bit. Im sure most other HU's can do much the same.

i guess it comes down to what you want to do, how it fits in your budget.
ideally, you would have pods instead of mounting them in your doors, but when your on a bit of a budget, or are looking for more of a stealth install u might as well stick with what you've got.

to look in my car it looks like the speakers are standard :) no exposed tweeters, no fancy pods :)

sounds good enuf for me too, loud & clear!

Yeah im sorta happy with mine i mean i cant expect my 200wrms amp to power my 12 DVC sub to its full power. And the only thing my system really lacks is midbass everything else is good. :roll:

ive been through a few brands of splits and te INFINITY ones i have at the moment are awesome for the cost of them $300. I removed the standard dash pad mounted tweeters and fitted the new tweeters in the grill part of the dash top, they come with adjustable bases so sound direction can be changed to suit. very happy with them. i have pics of tweeter install if interested.

you could try spending some $$ on sound deadening.

i found it not only improved my mid-bass in the doors, but also the clarity of the sound and the apparant volume (by apparant, i mean, less rattles means u can concentrate on the music more)

u could do ur boot while ur at it and improve ur sub bass too :)

Yeah i gotta go login in to Alpine.com.au and grab some vouchers, as im a memebr with their website. ( i could of got $200 of thier latest CD stacker too) they sent me the coupon slip. RRP of the CD staker was $499 and the voucher was good for -$200 off of that price at ne Alpine dealer/store.

Too bad i didnt sell my car back then as that was 4 weeks ago and now its expired GGRRR.
