    The JBL tweeter has rattling sound and it needs to be replaced, should I replace it with OEM tweeters or should be looking into something else?

    Is there anything out there that is Plug and Play?

    Crutchfield suggested this https://www.crutchfield.com/p_13699048/JL-Audio-C1-075ct.html,

    Are these plug and play or do I need to do some modification of my own?

    Nice!! thanks for that link.
    What tweeters would you suggest I should buy that would match or even better than my OEM JBL tweeter?
    It should be one that would match the OEM brackets.

    I got the Red Wolf harness, any recommendation on the tweeter replacement?

    A number of people have went with a 3.5" speaker vs a tweeter (see thread). I found the 3.5 to be nice but overbearing unless I moved the fade/sound to the center of the rear set. Once I put in my new 6x9s found that was all I wanted/needed and removed the 3.5". Currently considering a tweeter but well see. My system is not JBL so not sure that makes a difference.

    The nice thing about the Wolf harness is you can plug in different speakers or go without and the 6x9s still play.

    I thought about the 3.5 myself but my wife would not agree to that, is her car after all, so, I just need a pair of tweeters that are of the same quality or better that will fit without any mod.

    Actually I am considering the JL Audio tweeter Crutchfield recommended to you. I just installed an amp and this tweeter might fit right in, plus always been a JL Audio fan after owning some of their stuff in the past.
