Wj Tweeter installation idea? help!

I think thinking about adding these new tweeters in my wj but using my bose computer speakers as the tweeters. Would it be possible to disassemble the speakers and put them in my wj? They are 2" to 2.5" tweeters and love the quality of them and would LOVE them in my jeep. Thanks!

It's questionable whether they'll do the same thing for you in the car as they do on your desk, it's a whole different application - but here's a similar project that worked out pretty well.

It seems like it would be the same basic thing. I was just thinking of the bose because of the quality in general is far more superior than other brands without a doubt.

Well, that's certainly one opinion...

Good luck, sir!

totally agree with your statement! But to each their own...

To further answer you need to watch the impedance. Typically home or multi media speakers are 8ohm nominal. Car speakers usually run 4 ohm nominal.
Further, what channel on the amp/ head unit were you planing on using? There is a fet cap on the OE tweeter matted to its impdance etc. Honestly a full set of components with mid+tweeter along with cross over network is your best option as they are designed to work in a car. Your desk speakers are paired to the enclosure they are in to obtain that sound. Changing the enclosure will change the sonic signature.

My dash tweeters are from some Harmon-Kardon PC speakers that I had laying around. I think they are like 4 Ohm 5 watt speakers and they work fine.
