FYI, you cannot buy replacement tweeter parts from alpine or any of their distributers. If anyone has a set of the mounts they didn't use because of a factory installation or have any tips on how to fabricate one, please let me know. Right now, I have a hole in my door panel larger than the tweeter without the mount...making them useless.
I don't know honestly. I know they are the 51mm ring radiator tweeters from the SPX17PRO set. I would prefer the whole setup so I can swivel mount them as well, but I am will to take the flush mount at this point (off-axis tweeters sound better than no tweeters at all).
Let me know if this is same series as what you have.
This is correct. They fit nice and snug in there. No need for glue.Use PVC, they fit right into I think its 1.5" pvc, or maybe the piece of pvc the 1.5" goes into. Just take them up with you to the store
Yeah, the above suggestion was for if you wanted to fab tweeter pods which is what I did for my sails. I've never put my tweeters in the doors so I'm not sure about placement without the mounts and/or gluing.I have holes in my door where my PG RSD's were mounted already. Unless I am missing something, I don't see how PVC is going to help me here. I could see it if I wanted to mount them on the a-pillers like the write-up in the "how to" section, but not here.
When I had my old Integra it came w/ tweeters in the doors and when I replaced them for better components, the sound was never right as the driverside tweeter was too damn close to me and overpowering. So I moved the tweeters to the kicks and just put the stock tweeters back in to cover the hole. Perhaps if you still have your PG RSD tweets or buy the $40 set on amazon you could just plug the holes for cosmetics. This would free you up to use a more optimal posttioning of those awesome X-pro tweeters maybe up in the pillars and get better sound, plus baffle the hell out of any autophiles that took a look and listen.I don't think everyone understands. I HAVE to put them in my doors or buy new ones (which I can't afford). I mounted my PG RSD tweets there when I bought them over a year ago. In hindsight, it was a mistake, but I either have to mount these in the door, or buy new doors, or rock door panels with giant hole saw holes in them (not really what I want in the car I have always wanted).
