All new speakers

So I don't really care about sound. All I play is country...
But my girlfriend likes to play her music loud.

I have the JVC Bluetooth head unit (20rms 50 peak)

I'm buying kicker 5.25s all the way around... I have adapter brackets)
I'd like to add a couple tweeters too. Can I just splice them in with the front ones or will it be took cj for the head unit?

*too much*


Looking at the Polk db1001 tweeters if that makes a difference.
The kickers are just the 11ds525

Anyone smarter than me tell me if this is okay?

I'm not going to run an amp. I got the 20rms head for a reason. I don't have a sub yet.

your best plan would be to put components in the front with the tweeters mounted with nalin mfg brackets or using jk tweeter pods.(there is a writeup here somewhere)

if you go with a coax and add a tweeter you would have to wire it to 2 or 8 ohms, doing it at 2 would toast your head and 8 would reduce the power coming from the head to say 10rms, with a component set you will have a separate tweeter and mid and still be at 4ohms.

Components means crossovers? I've done speakers but never tweeters

I think the polks have passive crossovers.

Yes the Polk tweeters have a crossover but to wire them you have to branch off the main speaker. A component set has one crossover that runs both the mid and the tweeter. The kicker 5.25 component set is ks5.2. But they cost 179.95 a set. I would say get Polk ds5251 for the front and db651 for the soundbar

I was gonna keep the soundbar with 5.25 because ill add a sub in the future.

Are you suggesting I just don't buy tweeters?

The Polk component set is better priced but only comes with one tweeter. Are they stupid???

Okay I started reading reviews and they come with two tweeters. Amazon screws up sometimes. Ima follow your advise with the Polk db5251 but get the kicker 5.25s for the bar.

Thanks for your help!!

They come with one tweeter per side. Adding more than that makes it sound weird.
