Default installing tweeters on SE

If i was to install aftermarket tweeters into my SE 97 Bonni, then how would i wire them? I guess I could jump off the speaker right next to it but is that safe and does it take away power? Does anyone know of a tweeter that fits that spot perfectly besides factory ones? Well thanks for the help......

Hey welcome. Where from NY are ya?

If you 'jump' on to the speaker it should not cause a problem as tweeters take little power to run. You might want to consider using a high pass crossover to avoid blowing it or 'muddying' the sound.

He'* correct. The factory speakers don't have an external crossover, the wires are just run in parallel into the speakers, which have capacitor crossovers on each of them.
