I am gonna install some Alpine component speakers with in-line cross-overs in my front doors and want to use the stock wiring. I emailed Crutchfield before buying the speaks and they assured me their harness would allow me to use stock wiring and not have to splice or run new speaker wires. Not correct. With the lines going to stock tweeter first, you lose signal to the woofer if you disconnect the tweet at its connecter.
My question is this: After the connector at the tweet, 2 red wires and two black wires fuse together and run to the tweeter terminals. Can i disconnect these from the tweeter terminals and run them instead to the woofer? Of course I would then run the in-line crossover from the woofer to the new tweeter. I was thinking if this would work, I could easily re-install the old tweeter and just solder the fused red and black wires back to the terminals if I ever want to return it to stock.
I have searched but found no definite answer concerning using stock wiring for new component speaks and I really don't want to run new wires. Any help will be appreciated, Thanks,
