Tweeter Question

I am the owner of a 2000 jeep grand cherokee limited and am having a problem with the tweeters in the dash.

I have the inifinity gold system and when I turn the volume up, to even a moderate level, I hear a annoying rattle/hum coming from the tweeters. Consequently, I have been only using the back two speakers by switching the control knob on the factory head unit.

I find this very obnoxious and would like to find a cheap/easy way to fix it. Is it possible to just cut the wires running to the tweeters, or will that mess up my whole stereo?

I am not very knowledgeable about audio stuff at all so I was hoping to get some input from other owners. Thanks in advance for your help.

you can cut the tweeter wires with no ill effects concerning the working ability of the system... but you will have no highs up front.

you could, however, replace the tweeter easily with a pair from crutchfield (they have cheap ones that'll work just fine for the factory stereo).

According to Crutchfield:

No direct factory replacements available. Your factory tweeter does not match any aftermarket size exactly. Call us for details about available space in your factory locations for custom mounting.

True, there are no direct fit from Crutchfield. I believe the indash ones are some weird 3". But that doesn't mean you can just use some 1" tweeters with a mounting bracket of sorts in the same location without any major modifications.

I would consider a surface mount with a swivel, mounted on the dash.

Just an FYI, the x-over points on those factory tweeters are pretty low, the get near full-range sound from the amp.

Found a pair

I found a pair of OEMS at a website called www.jeeptweeter.com . They were something like 90 bucks for the pair..... worked for me...

i bought a pair of tweeters from bestbuy because i had the same problem. youll have to fab up some of your own mounting brackets in most cases but thats easy. just pop up the cover over the tweeters (the whole thin cover that runs under the whole windshieild). cut the clips off the factory system, splice the wire and hook them up. the aftermarket offers much better highs than stock anyways. good luck.
