:confused: I'm out looking at component sets.I have a 2001 altima SE with the factory components.My problem is its a lease car and I don't want to cut holes any where.I'm thinking about buying a kicker component set.Its the 6.2I.I checked crutchfield and they don't even sell these as front speakers they only sell them as rear for a 2001 altima.Thats why I wonder if they will even fit in my doors.Anyway does anyone know if this component will fit in my doors with out cutting?Or know the size of the factory tweeters?The 6.2I has a 1 inch tweeter.I'm pretty sure the mid/woofer will fit.Also have one more question I'm thinking about installing the same set in the rear of my car.The kickers have a bridge so you can mount the tweeter over the mid/woofer like a coaxial.Just wanted to see what people thought of this.I'm going to amp with an alpine 45 X 4 watt Rms.Many of my friends said that tweeters in the rear of the car might be to over powering and said I should just go with midbass drivers.But I thought that midbass drivers need to be mounted in a box.Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.Thanks!

3M makes doulbe sided tape that works wonders.

Get it at Home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart, or Target.

:) I know double sided tape is always an option for mounting tweeters but I would rather not do that.Just personal taste I guess.I'd rather have them flush mounted thanks for the Idea though!

I took a look at my friends 2001 SE, and I'm guessing either .5 or .65 inch tweet. I don't really know, but the "grill" on the door for the tweet is SMALL. Don't count on being able to put anything aftermarket in there until you pull off the panel and take a look for yourself. Definitely don't count on putting a 1 inch in there...

Edit::MB Quarts makes a .5 inch tweet. CDT makes a .75 inch.

Edit::: JBL has a .5, Cerwin Vega has a .75

They are around .75 inches. There is a lot of space behind the grill so don't worry too much about size. The tweeter grill is way too small.......It probably blocks out half of the sound coming from the tweeter. Bad design. :angry1:

The stock tweeters on the 01 SE does NOTHING. Its just for show. The sound from the full range completely overpowers the tweeters. Crapy grill design, crapy tweeter.

Back to the main topic, using double side tape is the only way to mount aftermarket tweeters........unless you wanna drill a hole on the tweeter's magnet. Most components come with double side tape for its tweeters. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info guys!
Miah, my best advice is to take off the door panel and take a look at how the factory tweet is mounted.

On the Subaru WRX, it's got a bracket with a single screw goin into the tweet and then it's glued on. Unscrew, pop the glue, then you have enough room to mount even a 1 inch tweet. I've heard of people changing out their tweet with the only tools bein a screwdriver and a hot glue gun.

But that's on a WRX. Check to see how much space the alty has where the factory tweet is. You might have more than a three quarters of an inch!

EDIT:: RPM, you da man! ;-) I'll have to pass this along to my friend who has an SE. He doesn't know jack about car audio, but he wants to get some new speakers after he heard my diamonds...

Whizzer cone. Fun to say, not fun to listen to. And yer right, those stock tweets are really not audible...
