    Do the tweeters have to be 4 ohms impedance if the h.u. and the other speakers in the system are ?

    I was hoping I could get away with these 2 ohm infinity kappa 10.9T tweeters

    http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/speakers/tweeters/infinity-kappa-10-9t.html

    If not does anybody know of any 4 ohm tweeters with crossovers or inline capacitors?

    I found some sony xplod XS H20S tweeters at 4 ohms ideal for my setup, but cant find a uk retailer and seems a bit extreme to import them from the US

    I was hoping to wire from the front components in parallel to the crossover using piggyback spades, and then to the tweeter respectively.

    Cheers

    Tweeter impedances are pretty irrelevant, they don't pull any power. A 2ohm tweeter maybe very slightly louder than the 4 ohm equivalent but that's about all.
