Yup, plain and simple. Didnt use them. Just disconnected the wire and taped it down. They are so bright they create an unnatural sibilance (that Ssss sound you hear when someone talks to close to a mic).
The tweeters in the Alpines are much more natural sounding and don't give me a headache after prolonged use.

Doing some more R & D this week and going to try to get an exact maximum depth measurement. Not that easy as the only way to do it is to put the door panels back on with no speaker. Then going to take a small straight wire and push it through the mesh opening until it touches the back of the inner door, subtract the difference of how thick the door panel is and voila. Easier said then done. Needs to be done so we can know what we can put in the doors
2013 S4 Loaded (and NO RFT's) Awesome is an understatement
