    components

    hi there, i've just bought a mk4 5door and got myself some 17cm component speakers for the front. i've fitted the speakers and tweeters, is there any point me fitting the separate crossovers also? as i hear the astra has them built in already... just wondering if there'd be any vast improvement in sound quality making it worth my while

    cheers, chris

    The standard tweeter has its own crossovers.

    If you are replacing mids and tweeters you will need crossovers. Take the feed from the standard mid and put that to your crossovers input, then go to your mid and tweeter from there.

    If you put your tweeters onto the existing wire without crossovers you'll probably damage them.

    you must use at least the crossover for the tweeter as even the low power from the head unit will cook them if your doing it you may aswell do it properly
    if you look on the factory fit tweeter there is a capacitor and coil that is the so called crossover
