Tweeter in parallel with coaxial. Does tweeter RMS need to match coaxial?

Hmmm. I was under the impression the amp would not see a 2 ohm load because the tweeters are only operating at the higher frequencies.


Anyone know how I could quieten down the tweeters if they are too loud?


This is true when you are talking about component speakers. That is how you can have a 4 ohm tweeter and a 4 ohm mid and the amp sees 4 ohms. You are still sending high frequencies to to both speakers in your case.


There are a bunch of terrible answers here. Your best bet is to not wire the tweeters up with that amp. Wiring tweeters on their own channel and the coax speakers on their own channel is not a solution, you will lose all stereo sound, although it probably won't hurt any equipment. Best bet is either to not use the tweeters and stick with the coax speakers (or replace them with a component set) or to buy an amp/replace your current amp with a 4 channel to run the tweeters. You can possibly run the tweets from the headunit though I'm not sure it would be worth the effort.
