Default CDT ES-02 question

I am going to install a pair of CDT ES-02 mid/tweeter units in the doors of my 06 BMW 330ci. It will replace the existing pair of BSW mid/tweeters.

1) Does it have to be "sealed" in the rear as I have read ? Some say yes,
some say no. It looks like all that would be involved in sealing it would
be to attach and cement a 2" id plastic pipe cap or end. Is is that simple?

2) Can this be used without adding a tweeter ? Is lack of a tweeter glaringly evident ? It will be powered with either an ADS 50w x 2 or an Xtant b2100 (also 50 x 2) through a JBL MS8.

Anyone running these as both mid and tweet, and like it ?

Thanks,

If there's another, larger speaker in the door then seal it. A PVC 2" cap should work.

Whether you like ES-02 without a tweeter is subjective. Some people are ok with a 2" or 3" speaker and no tweeters, but if your hearing is good on the upper end you might want to consider adding a 1" tweeter pair. Try it without and give it a couple of weeks.
