    Reviving an old thread to say just did this tweeter swap this afternoon and the difference over stock is absolutely insane. I used to think the stock head unit was garbage (well, it's not great) but now it is definitely LOUD. Feels like the bass kicks more too. Great upgrade.

    Just the tweeters, though once I had the door panels off I was kicking myself for not doing them all at once. However just the tweeters alone make an insane difference. Can't believe I wasted 7 years with the stockers.

    So what pink and purple or green and blue is the positive and negative coming from the deck? At this point it would probably be simpler just to pull wire and skip all the factory stuff. I just need the two to run from the deck to the cross over then from there I’ll run new wiring to the mid driver and the tweeter
