need some adive please!!!

Ok, so im running 4 jl audio 5x7's and 2 jl audio .5" tweeters. they are hooked up to a jl audio 360/4 amp. i got the rear 5x7's each on a channel for the rear. and the front channels each have a 5x7 and a .5" tweeter. well over the past few years i blew 3-4 of the .5" tweeters. sometimes one at a time, sometimes both. i got the amp on high pass filter, gain half way & the tweets have a crossover inline to help block low frequincies. here is the link to the speakers & amp-

TR570-CXi - Car Audio - TR - Coaxial Speakers - JL Audio
TR050-CT - Car Audio - TR - JL Audio
JX360/4 - Car Audio - Amplifiers - JX - JL Audio

the 5x7's are 4ohms and the tweeters are 8ohms. im not sure what that brings the total ohm load to? but the amp is 2ohm stable. i don't have anything bridged, just both + and - wires together in each channel. if the amp is running them at 4ohms it says 70 watts a channel. if its 2ohms then 90 watts a channel. plus i keep the bass down on the head unit. surely there not getting over powered? i mean the tweeters are 50watts Continuous Power Handling (RMS) & 125 watts peak. the 5x7's are 50 watts rms & 225 watts peak. any ideas or suggestions is appreciated!!!! thank you!!!

plus i was thinking, since the .5" tweeters i've been using & blowing are discontinued, but still available some places. the newer jl audio series is out and i can get .75" tweeters for $50.00 and 1" tweeters for $60.00. while the discontinued .5" tweeters are between $70-$100!!! i mean it only makes sense......i can get a bigger tweeter that handles more power for quite a bit less!!!

the only thing is the tweeters & 5x7's i'm running now are the same series, the tr series. but it only makes sense to get a bigger, more powerful tweeter for less money.

I agree that JL audio is good, so I understand the want for them.
BUT it seems you are planning on putting coaxial (2-way) speakers AND tweeters in the front?

Sounds like you need a component set. I'm sure you've heard of those...
You wouldnt have to worry about double tweeters and ohm loads, since these component sets are meant to be together, usually at 4 ohms.

Keep 2 coaxials in the rear.
