These monster tweets safely play anything from 2000hz to 20khz to bring the full high range of concert venue sound to your vehicle of choice. They come in sleek black aluminum with black bullet centers with threaded mounting shafts. The shafts are threaded so you can have a flush tweeter or use the shaft to create a directional sound like a more traditional horn driver.
These tweeters come in 4-ohm DCR, have a neodymium magnet, and a sensitivity of 106DB. This correlates to a very loud tweeter on low power and can handle more power much more efficiently.
