Hey everybody I've been lurking around this forum for quite a while and have searched for many hours on this topic. I can't seem to find a direct comparison.
The vehicle i'm working with is an 2007 Chevrolet Silverado x-cab.

My question for yall is would I be better off using tweeter that came with my hertz hsk165 set or to go an buy the seas neo alum. The tweeter will be mounted in the factory location (way off axis) and paired up with ID oem's.

I'm sorry if this has been posted but I just can't seem to find it. Thank you for any help provided

Can't say I don't like Neo/OEM combo as I chose them myself, but try the Hertz first- since it's factory location doesn't sound like a ton of effort to swap out if you aren't satisfied.

Thanks for the input. Anybody else?

Reason I'm asking, if I don't have to spend money on seas neo's I don't want to.

Wait do you have the complete HSK set or just the tweeters, what are you doing with the ID OEMs?

I have used both the HSK tweeter and the Seas Neos, totally different tweeters IMO. If you already have the Hertz tweeters, try them out first and if you like them keep them if not then go to the Seas

I have the complete hsk set but I didn't like the mid so I'm going to use ID oem for the mid instead. Was trying to find out if I should invest in a new tweeter.

My advice would be to try what you have then change what you dont like, especially if you dont have the money to buy both and try them out

The HSK165 includes of the HT 25 tweeter, and the HV165 woofer
I've heard this component set several times.
I think you are right, there is a lack of mid.
(although the HV165 woofer is capable of producing a lot of bass for a 6.5" speaker).

In my opinion, try the HT 25 tweeter that you already have (as it was told),
if it doesn't sound good, you can sell the complete HSK165 set, and buy a good tweeter that fits your taste.

The dome of your HT25 is made of fabric (tetolon), so Seas Neo alum will probably sound different (I've never heard Seas alum)

Helped a friend with his A4 few months back. quick swap between his hertz and the seas he has. Seas Neo > HT 25, hands down.

I have the neo/OEM combo and I love it. Mine are pretty close to on axis so I can't help you with a way off axis situation.
