    One of you guys told me to add a tweeter with a crossover to the cab in the pic...
    I think it's a good idea.
    can you give me some suggestions about it? (I mean...everything...)
    the cab is a 2x12 + 6" mid 4 ohm /600 watt

    With a 6" mid you probably can get along without it anyway. By and large most bass cabs would be much better off with a six inch mid instead of a tweeter, but tweeters are easier to install and less expensive so that's what's usually used. If you really want to add one the only option is to move the upper port to the rear of the cabinet and install the tweeter in that spot. One of these Eminence APT 80s would do, with a crossover at 4 to 5kHz depending on where your six starts to roll off.
