Image Dynamics Speakers Way Too Harsh! Add Processor or Replace?

General Car Audio Discussion - DIYMA Car Audio Forum - www.diymobileaudio.com
I recently installed a set of Image Dynamics ID 65CS components in my fiancee's 2016 Honda Fit with an ID12 sub.

It sounds ridiculously harsh. My ears ring when it is at moderate volume. My fiancees ears are much more sensitive so she doesn't use her stereo at all.

There isn't an adjustable setting for the tweeter on the crossover.

Total system set up:

Factory touchscreen headunit.

Soundstream iCQ.4 LOC

Image Dynamics ID 65CS components

Image Dynamics ID12 sub

Precision Power P900.4 amp

I have an Arc Audio PS8 processor I wanted to save for a different install, so I'm hoping to find a better solution than using that, and paying for a $200 tune.

I found a few sets of Focal speakers that had up to a -6db selector for the tweeter.

I need a set of speakers that are very smooth and gentle on the ears. Ideally $200 or below.

Any recommendations for my situation? Thank you!

Edit: Disregard. The shop owner I worked with either lied to me or was uneducated. The crossovers were set to +3db. Changed them to -3 and it is much less harsh.
