Cool Are those tweeters in the Dash of 97 Intrepid.

I need to replace the stereo system in the car because the speakers are blown but I noticed 3 round little 3 inch slotted plastic on the dash. As if there are tweeters there. Is that what it is? If so are they easy to take out because if I'm putting some nice speakers in the interior they might as well be replaced too. Thanks in advance.

Yes, they are... and you can carefully remove the black piece of the dash and they are mounted under it.

There's 3 of them. Thanks. The middle is probable fake right? Suppose I'd find out but this saves me time in buying new one's. What are they 3"? Just bought the car and every car HAS to have aftermarket sound equipment. Could you confim my suspicions? I believe now that there is 2 3" tweets. 6.5" in the doors and good ol 6X9 in the back. Am I right?

If you are using a factory amp, you need 2 ohm speakers, or the system will sound horrible.

No everything gutted. I'm still contemplating the factory wiring for the interiors. I've left the factory wiring before and it was cleaner easier and sounded pretty good so that may stay

Atleast in my car the wiring was some pretty good single core copper. I have a EQ amp that runs 40 amps RMS through the stock wiring to the speakers and sounds fine to me.

Hmm I was was thinking of getting a 4 channel amp also but where do you tuck one of those? Under the seat? or is there space inside the dash behind the deck?

true that, put in 4 rockfords 8ohm (2 - 6 coaxs, 2 - 6x9's), keeping the factory system and it was a toned-down garbage sounding output, dash spkrs were blown and disconnected
Had the Infinity factory system w/ the sail tweets and amp (right kick panel) kept the factory spkr wiring, & then by-passed the amp. Much better then. Now I've replaced the door spkrs w/ 6 woofers, using small 100W amp on those, added 2 sub 10's (tween trunk & back seat) backed by a 1000W Memphis amp, currently have sail tweets (3" MB Quartz) & 6x9's output off this head unit for now


Not caring for the R.Fosgates 6x9's now, probably replace em w/ higher end later on

So don't bother with Fosgates? I've never owned any but I thought they were good. Hey are you saying the factory amp is located in right kick panel? Could I just rip it out and replace with better?

I can get better photo if needed. The wiring is crazy for this seeing I am using the high level inputs and not the RCAs.


The curve of the rear tail lamp housing is on then left.

I got the low-end Rockford's, I mean I got all 4 of them for 85$ off FleaBay. So I imagine they are the low-end line. Factory wires for all speakers can be accessed @ the factory amp locale (Pass. side Kick panel).

Pretty much. All speaker output goes from head unit (I ran wires for front and used factory wires to send back) and then from the amp it goes to rear speakers and then to front of car spliced into adapter that feeds into the front stereo harness. I have photo of the harness somewhere.......
