    wiring up front comps 2 amp

    i want replace the standard astra mk4 front comps to vibe se-k60's, but i want them to be powered by my amp.

    how to i wire up the tweeter and speaker to the crossover??

    in my old car i snipped the wires at back of head unit for the door speaker, and had the crossover goig to that, and the tweeter didnt have anywhere to go so i put it on the dash and had the wire going straight to that.

    anyone know where the wires are for the tweeter and speaker im confused? surely there must be a crossover point somewhere?

    Well if you like you can still connect the amp's output onto the speakers where they would go from the back of the headunit.

    Then when you have the door panel off to fit your comps use the wiring going to the main speaker as your input to your crossover and then take the output from the crossover to the relivant speaker. All you do is forget about the factory wiring going to the tweeter

    For the record the crossover for the factor tweeter is built into it

    The best thing to do would be velcro it to the outside of the door membrain ( the plastic). If You need more room you can remove the bit under the arm rest (all will make sense once the door panels off)
