Exodus Anarchy in car, what tweeters to use?

I'm upgrading the speakers in my 2002 Eddie Bauer ford explorer, and want to use the anarchy's. But I don't know what tweeters to use...I'd say my budget for these including the price of both anarchy's would be $300 including crossover parts also. That's another thing...I'd need someone to build a crossover for the final product...I can obviously buy the parts and build it, I just don't know how to design crossovers yet.

What would you guys recommend? I'm going for insane sound quality, I love crystal clear mids and highs.

Re: Exodus Anarchy in car, what tweeters to use?

Would these tweeters be a good suit for the anarchy?

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=275-140

These Vifa's have a wider frequency range...don't know if that matters.

Would it be worth the hassle to build a crossover and match the tweeter and all that, or should I just get something like this that will be an exact drop in for what I have now?

I would need something that would have the tweeter in place of the phase plug...I'm not sure if I can mount a tweeter anywhere but there for now.

I put these in the rear deck of my sedan, and I highly recommend them.

I had to use adapter rings to get them to fit, but they were worth the trouble.
G'luck,

I think I'll give those a try. They're fairly cheap so it's not too bad if something does happen to where I don't use them or don't like them. I'll need an adaptor plate as well...but I've already found one that I need.

Alright, I'll get them ordered. What amp should I use for them? I might be running four, can't decide if I want to change front and rears, or leave the rears stock...

Those Dayton RS drivers are deadly good. They can play as low and loud with low distortion, as just about any 1" dome tweeter except perhaps a Scanspeak Aircirc or CSS LD25X.

In a car, building a passive crossover is not an option due to the necessarily complex time/phase delay of anything besides a coaxial. You will want an active crossover and will need to bi-amp. I recommend these amps:

Don't underestimate us! Whether it be time, space, or alternate realities, they mean nothing to us! We will pierce the path and methods you've chosen! That is who we are!

So I won't need to build a crossover then?
And I had heard they were really good also.

I found the build quality to be impressive, and the sound is great. I think they were "designed" in Europe and made in China, as so many drivers are these days.
I second the Aura amp recommendation; there are several models on sale at PE, and they're monsters! They actually test out above their rated power. You'll have to know how to install them, though, as the instructions are a bit weak- I think they're designed for the pro-installation market. For example, all of the Auras have a ghost sub channel not listed in the specs. Took me some head-scratching to figure it out, but I'm not a pro autosound guy, so maybe you wouldn't have that problem. I did wish I'd bought the 5 channel unit though, would have simplified my installation.

No, in fact analog crossovers just don't make sense in a car. You'll want a digital crossover like a miniDSP, and some measurement gear.

Digital Crossover are not a get-out-of-jail-free card - it'll take plenty of patience and tweaking to get it right, and the electrical slopes in the software will not translate to acoustic slopes in the hardware - but if you're willing to learn then it's probably well worth it.
