    Do you know if it’s possible to wire the Subaru kicker tweeters into a 2nd gen ? The Subaru has a 4 connector plug but oem is only two

    They might plug into the lower connector (the one with 4 wires going into it) but I’d double check the wiring just to be sure. However, that wiring will need to be lengthened to reach the tweeter location, so probably more work than needed

    Thank you, I’ll take apart my door and check it out, do you know of any harness that could extend the lower connector you’re talking about

    None I’m familiar with. It would be a very easy job with a few red butt connectors and some wire crimpers. Or solder if you’re comfortable with that. It’s only 4 wires and you can’t really mess it up. Cut them (noting which are which, because there’s 2 of each color) strip them back ⅛ inch, add in new wire, crimp, call it a day

    I did Kicker DS....pretty similiar to CS except lower power rating which is good for factory headunit or aftermarket. CS would be better with a higher power amplifier

    Compare specs and materials they are made of and they are close and a good swap out alternative

    Yes you can without cutting the factory harnes. check here: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...p-possible-non-jbl-also.611437/#post-21077325

    I did it on my 2nd gen jbl system. Further investigation leads me to believe the adpater harness I bought will work with the non jbl system also. It's actually the same plug. Just on the jbl, only 2 wires are used instead of the 4 with 2 going down to the door speakers.

    Only two of the Subaru wires on the tweeters are used. You can easily wire up the other 2 to go back down to the mid range in the door.
