    Hey guys, so i bought my 2010 4 dr with the "upgraded" JBL system so i wouldn't have to fuck with building a new stereo. 8 months later my drivers door tweeter is blown out.

    What would be a good replacement and is compatible???:confused:

    I no nothing about crossovers or speakers which is why im asking for help and the dealership wanted to bend me over for $190 just in parts for a new tweeter.
    Thanks guys any advice is appreciated

    You can check on Ebay for a factory replacement, or check out the Buy/Sell/trade sections on here, as some people who upgrade dump the old stuff pretty cheap. to install, remove the door pannel, un plug the tweeter, and install/plug in the new one. its an easy swap.

    My pass side is blown out too(JBL). Dealer says no, it ain't.

    Crutchfield.com has a nice selection of speakers to replace yours.

    Can get some nice new front components (tweeters plus the bigger speaker below) for significantly less than that. For instance I just bought a pair of these:
    http://www.crutchfield.com/p_500SPS...ir=FFBrand|Alpine&nvpair=FFSpeaker_Size|6+3/4

    Look on Amazon too though, as things are a lot cheaper there from reputable dealers. With Crutchfield you pay a premium for their (admittedly fantastic) customer support.

    Good luck with the upgrade!
