Smile Replacing door tweeters

I am skeptical on ordering the adapters from tacotunes to replace my door tweeters with 1” tweeters that came with my components. Are there any other options out there that you guys know of?
TYIA!

tacotunes are good unlike this site reviews, i received my order in 2-3 days...

other option is to reuse the factory mount, just carefully cut the old tweeter out specially since you'll have to cut the wiring to get the factory plug outta the system...then mount your new tweeter in the cutout...

The Taco Tunes stuff is good. There have been a few customer service issues but I would still order from them. Mr. Marv also makes good stuff too.

Tacotunes wants 9 dollars for the tweeter adapter which seems fair to me, but they want Fourteen Dollars to ship the damn things.

How do I order them from Mr Marv?

I used the stock mounts and removed the tweeter from the brackets. My Alpine type-s tweeters fit perfectly in the stock brackets.

Check eBay, they are not the quality of the others, but for speaker mounts,,, how much do you really need?

I made my own... But if you're not inclined to do that contact Mr. Marv or check out hookedontronics http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/buy...ings-sale.html. As for TacoTunes I think the problem is more with their service than it is with the products they sell.

I just ordered the complete speaker mounting set from Mr. Marv. Quick response, always helpful. He makes a very high quality product. Just PM him and he'll get back to you quick.
