Dont install any tweeters atleast not the famed TS20. THey will do more harm thatn good.

Why do you want to install a tweeter anyway?

a. With the conventional mounting, the the driver is way off-axis for the tweeter in the JBL coaxial for someone who appreciates the higher frequencies. Perhaps a bit of tilt can be beneficial? Even a slight nudge in the right place on the equalizer might do wonders.
b. Sometimes somethings are for others, not self, right Navin-ji?

On the TS20 - I thought that is the standard for chilla chilla. What harm? Will keep the car rodent- and pest-free!

the ts-20 is a big and mighty tweeter it produces so much of HF that even mosqutio are also afraid of them..

I would suggest to remove the 2-way front speakers and install a component kit there. you can get a tweeter there which will give you better results...

Well OLD MAN you have not heard the TS20 I guess. Actually the TS20 can be tamed but why bother. It is easier just to get a better tweeter or as LBM suggested a component set.

the TS-20 is cross at 7k and higher which contains a lots and lots of treble which will only cause fatigue nothing else.

u know what....there are 2 versions of TS20 available in market; genuine and desi, i think you would be better off with desi TS20; they are not soooo harsh.

would cost app Rs. 550/-

SAM bhai, i never give a silly advice, specially on non-meet threads. whatever i say is what i know of my own experiences.... as LBM rightly pointed out, desi TS20 is not as bright as original one. (to me atleast). I've used both of them (desi and genuine) and gifted them to my BIL after I upgraded to JBL front comps.

desi TS20 is meant for people who take pride in showing off "dhinchak" system; have no money to buy the original TS20 which is priced at app Rs. 1800 and to give themselves a physcological satisfaction that am using the same tweeter as Mr. X jiski gaadi mein solid awaaz aati hai (wohi chaar 2150 aur do 307 wali kaali zen).

as such, i would advice him to get a pair of desi TS20 which would solve the purpose!
