Need some tweeters for my 04 chevy...

I have an 04 crew cab. .........Bose system (factory), Sounds good in the front.......but I noticed it sounded alittle flat in the back. Come to find out they did not put tweeters in the rear. Just a woofer. Hawk is charging me 40.00 for 1" tweeters and 30.00 to install. This seems a little high. Or is it? The labor seems somewhat in line. All they have to do is pull the door panels and jump the tweeters from the woofer and screw them to the door. I assuem they are top mount so no hols would have to be cut.

That is cheap.
The least expensive tweeters I have are $50pr. We would charge more than $30 to install.

let me be the first to recommend against this.

just meter the speakers, and if they aren't 10 ohms or something ridiculous, put some new coax's back there.

i would reccomend not touching the bose system. they normally crap out after a couple of years anyway. adding tweeters would strain that sensitive ass amp even more, and make it go sooner. there is a logical reason they dont put tweeters in the rear. i wont allow any tweeters in the rear of my vehicle. screws up your sound stage. i would buy parts for a bad ass system as you go. that way when you get that world renound bose buzz you will be ready.

I appreciate the heads up everybody. But I bit the bullit and had them put in. Sounds great. It did just what I wanted it to do. Fill the void.
