    With tweeters they are mostly used for the higher frequencies. If you were to hook splice them into a coaxial speaker set up you would have the tweeter hitting all frequencies except for the ones low passed by your head unit. This would result in a muddy sound which would not be good. You can build your own crossover or buy one and wire the tweeter and speaker into the crossover to low pass and high pass your individual speakers.

    Usually when people add tweeters it is for a 3 way set up with dedicated mid range and midbass speakers. But you can add tweeters to coaxial speaker set ups, but the result will probably be over powering highs which can sound very harsh.

    Now if you have component speakers with separate tweeters than this information isn't too relevant. You would just have to wire them in place of your existing tweeters

    Basically if I were you I would just buy a component set or make your own by mixing and matching GOOD crossovers, tweeters, and speakers! You dont want to have your tweeters tryin to play your mid bass line

    Was it a component set of speakers or coaxial and then you added a tweeter?
