A door speaker tweeter is a small and compact loudspeaker that forms part of a motor vehicle’s audio system and is used to enhance the quality of the audio output. The door speaker tweeters work by creating a high frequency pitch which improves and enhances the listener’s experience of the audio equipment. Certain types of door speaker tweeter are built into the speakers themselves whilst others sit separately from them.
Door speaker tweeters are made from various materials, including paper and other more expensive materials such as silk. They are also available in various shapes, although the most common of these are cone and dome shapes.
In certain makes and models of vehicle, especially those at the higher end, door speaker tweeters are factory installed. However, it is possible to enhance the output of a car audio system through installing a complete door speaker tweeter set.
Fitting a complete door speaker tweeter set involves two possibilities. Firstly, a set of tweeters can be purchased separately, as an addition to an existing speaker system. Alternatively, the entire speaker system can be replaced with a new set, which incorporates a complete door speaker tweeter set.
Door speaker tweeters are so effective in improving audio output that they are now almost an essential component of a car’s audio entertainment system.
