    audio experts have a few questions

    im about to upgrade my 05' s stereo.... i want to keep the stock head unit and want it to look as stock as possable. i plan a buying a 5channel amp. now heres the questions
    i bought pioneer 4 ways 6.5's for the front door and 5 1/4 for the rear door. from what i heard the stock tweeter in the front door uses a resistor to only recieve the highs. are the highs still gong into my 4 way speaker mounted lower in the door? can i throw a better tweeter in place of the stock tweeter with out any mods( hook it up to the stock wiring)?

    on the rear doors i was thinking about leaving those speakers powered to the stock head unit and custom mounting a set of 4 way 6x9s in the rear buy the window and having those run off the aftermarket amp . so the set up will be front lower door speakers(6.5 4ways) and rear deck speakers(6x9 4 ways) powered buy the amp and the the stock tweeters and rear door speakers going off the head units power. dose this sound feasable?

    i figure if i leave the factory wires to the speaker for the front door unhooked from the new speaker the tweeter will still get power and ill hook the new speaker directly to the amp. in theory i think it will all work thanks guys

    first things first, you DONT want huge great speakers coming from the rear. that being said, ditch the extra set of 6x9s idea and keep the rear speakers powered to the deck. make sure you have some uber nice front speakers and semi-decnt rears off the deck.

    you dont want to mess up your sound stage with another set of 6x9s...besides, this is just a regular car i assume.

    i had a gorgeous set of Boston Acoustics components in my protege in the front...people thought i had a small sub if i turned up the base and they were clear as hell. but my rear were low grade BA NX67s powered off the deck.

    i faded to the front and adjusted the sound stage on my alpine and it sounded phenomenal.
