    I have been reading some really good things lately about the Subaru Kicker Tweeters, now I work at a Subie dealership. I am noticing that the non JBL system in my 2018 is pretty cheeks, is it worth my time and money to install these. If someone has the part number I can see what the cost is from Subaru and possibly find some insight and deals for anyone trying to get these.

    I think they are worth it. Heck, even rockford fosgates are an upgrade.

    Even if you aren't an audiophile you should notice the difference. It depends on how much the difference is worth to you ($90 bucks?). If you're the kind of guy that likes to mess with the equalizer settings and blast music on your drives I think you'll enjoy them.

    Just checked our dealerships website, we have them for 88$. We are in Northern California and shipping would be way less money if you live anywhere in California. The parts website that you are referring to is based in Illinois so shipping to Cali would be a lot. Our website is https://www.subarupartspros.com/ and here is a link to the tweeters https://www.subarupartspros.com/sku/h631sfj101.html . Let me know if anyone has any questions I am more then willing to answer any of them!

    on ebay they are $98 with free shipping. If you are patient, ebay releases 20% off anything coupons once in a while that can net you them for $70 with free shipping.

    They do! I was able to get 4 falken tires with the coupon. I would be sure to enable email notifications and deal with the spam just for the one day they send the coupon out. There is also a thread here on TW where coupon codes are posted as soon as they are released due to diligent members willing to share a good deal like yourself.

    Get a real two way speaker like some pioneer. The Subaru tweeters are nice and do sound good. However the factory speakers in our Tacoma is a speaker, so a two way allows you to still have speaker plus a tweeter. The best of both worlds. I did both and prefer the pioneers because it still gives you a more over all better sound,as the tweeter alone just made everything sound crisp with all the highs. Try it, I learned the expensive way.

    I installed one of the subaru tweeters then compared the two via balance controls. Difference was night & day.

    Any chance you’re heading to the Bay Area anytime soon? I’d be willing to buy a set of tweeters from you to avoid shipping :D

    $80 from BAM Wholesale - PM me for link as it's getting removed. Or you can go on their website and just search the part number.

    Total came out to $80.44 shipped to me - just ordered them yesterday.
