Default Adding tweeter issue

Alright, currently I have ID 4x6 in the doors up front, and memphis 4x6 in the rear. I'm not switching them out for certain reasons...

I want to add a tweeter to my pillar to bring up the staging. I would prefer not to put in another amp. If need be I can though and run them active... but I'm hoping for an easier solution.

ideas I had....

1. Run off the deck, put passive crossovers in
2. Put in passive crossover from component set in, so both the coaxials and the tweets are powered off the amp


Just hoping for thoughts on the matter, or if either of my ideas are worth doing?

Here's the amps (just got them installed behind seat this week, finished tonight)

If the speakers are the same impedance, run them on 2 channels.

If they are 4 ohm each, run 2 on 1 channel at 2 ohms and 2 on the other.

Use the other 2 channels for 2-4 tweeters or 8 if you get 8ohm.

If the current 4 channel isn't active, you'll have to add a crossover or in line filter anyway.

Any more details about equipment and what passive xover would you be using?

Run them from the headunit because (a) you won't need very much power and (b) you'll be able to level match them with what you have already. Build some passives or use a spare set of component speaker passives on them.

I have some inline filters for them if I was to run them off the deck. I also have the rca filters if need be. I would prefer not to run my fronts in mono, I could take them to 2 ohm, but I'm sure the tweets take a lot less juice.

I have several types of xovers for components.... an xtant set, several mpyre audio ones. I have all kinds of trinkets laying around lol.

Can't blame you. I know a few ladies who love a good filling in the rear if you know what I mean.

If you didn't already see, the cross overs are from xtant and mpyre audio.

I'm running an Audiopipe APMI-2000 and memphis 4x50

You can use a passive crossover along with the coaxial as long as you wire the tweeters in parallel to the coaxial. Series connection would conflict with the existing crossover points as well as the tweeter crossover.

Don't be worried about wiring too low, just crossover the tweeter very high with a high quality capacitor and the ohm load won't change much at all.
