    Default factory cross overs - location?

    Hey chaps,

    I just picked up a set of infinity Components for the front doors so I will be replacing the factory speakers, tweeters and crossovers. I had already upgraded the door speakers with some kickers but these were a real BARGAIN!

    So, simple question - where is the factory crossover located or are the signals split at source?

    (If so, how should I wire up the components?)

    This is all running off my JVC headunit by the way

    Thanks fellas!

    Not sure I understand Lee, sorry


    Just looking at the How2 for components and the poster used the signal to the main (mid) door speaker as the input to his crossovers.

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...rs-front-doors

    But I wonder where the feed to the factory tweeters comes from?

    If the treble is already split out to the tweeters, then using the input to the larger (mid) speaker wont give the correct output......... or am I over complicating things?

    If your fitting aftermarket components its best to run them from a amp and replace the factory wiring for 16 or 18awg, you can feed them from the headunit with the factory wiring but you wont benifit that much tbh.

    Thanks


    I had already thought briefly about going direct to the amp (currently runs my sub) or to the head - and I think you are right its an opportunity to upgrade the wires too - top idea!
