    I just installed a JVC head unit and pioneer speakers all around.

    I figured I would disconnect the door tweeters, since the new pioneers are 3 ways. BUT,,, if I unplugged the harness to the tweeter, the main speaker went off. So I left them plugged in.

    Now with the new system, I think they are being pushed too much and giving some real high pitch sound.. SO I would like to disconnect them and see if it makes a difference.

    Anyone know how, like I said I cannot just unplug them because of the way they are wired.

    You could wire your new 3 ways directly to the head unit. Just completely bypass the stock wiring harness for the speakers and run totally new speaker wire.

    Yeah the tweeters and wired in series with the door 6x9's not parellal.
    - I completely removed my stock tweeters, cut the four wires going to the door side of the tweeter connector and soldered the same colored wires together.
    - If you don't want to cut the connector off, then make a set of jumper wires and connect the same color wire together on the connector.
    - Or cut the connector off the tweeters and make it a jumper, solder or splice the same colors together and reconnect to the door connector.
    Hope this makes sence and helps.

    gm, that seems to be the easiest thing to do. I did see a set of wires soldered to the tweeter on the top, the white harness went in from below.

    So if I just cut the soldered wires off the tweeter, the main speaker should still work then. Correct?

    Thanks guys, and if the above fix still kills the main speaker, I'll jumper them by color as L8r said.

    Thanks dude.

    If needed the wiring diagram is located at ?????

    Click on and open "audio and electricial"

    Then open "speaker circuit" and go to page AV-50.

    The tweeter is front speaker #2 and the 6x9 is front speaker #1.

    I plan on Amping up in the near future and running new wires to the door speakers. Then using the deck to power after market tweeters in the stock location using the stock 6x9 speaker wire. A sub will be down the road from all this. Mike

    All set,,,,,,,,I just snipped the soldered wires right at the speaker and VIOLA !!!

    Thanks.

    Chris...Did running your own wires make much of a difference?
