Tweeters

Hey guys,

I'm getting ready to buy a set of tweeters, and I was just wondering what is the best quality tweeter out there. I'm also wondering if anyone here has the tweeters with the LED lights.
I'm mainly buying them to plug up the 1" hole where the door cranks used to be. Hopefully it'll make my system sound better too.

Thanks in advance,

Brian

I'm mainly concerned with plugging the 1" hole where the door cranks were. So, it would be looks. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to get good sound from that location.
I'm thinking about getting some Alpine adjustable tweeters.
Are those pretty good?

Let me look in my audio parts box, I might have a set of gray tweeters that might fit that crank hole...

EDIT:

No luck, my garage is such a mess it will take me forever to reach all the nooks & crannies.

I would not just add a tweeter to a another set of speakers that already play the high notes..
You need to have some crossovers to cut the high frequencies from the existing speaker, and cut the low frequencies from the tweeter so they don't burn up.
High frequencies will be too loud and overpowering if both speakers are playing them.
you also get some cancellation and lobing if you do not.

You should probably look into a complete component package like the above, or if your a little bit more technical, you can find some nice raw drivers here.. http://www.parts-express.com/ or here http://www.madisound.com/
