    speaker question

    i made a thread last week about my system, and we concluded that my drivers door is missing a crossover, while my passenger door has one, and that is why my drivers side speakers wont work.

    i plan on buying a crossover in a few weeks when i get the money, but for the time being i have some extra speaker wire, could i just wire from 1 crossover to the other door for the next few weeks?

    Yes. But it really isn't worth it IMO. Just be patient and do it right. You'll thank yourself later.

    No, because that crossover in your passenger door has passenger door signals going in. If you wire from that over it will become mono right channel in your car.

    I'd just wait for the crossover, def not worth running the cables. You can just connect the wire in your driver door to whatever woofer is in the door for now if you want. It might be a bit blurry compared to the passenger, but it should take it okay.

    I'd avoid the tweeter incase it doesn't have a cap on it (low frequencies own tweeters)

    No problem. The crossover shouldn't be much.

    I'd say look into active crossovers if you have a good set of components, but you'd need a seperate amp for each set of speakers (tweeters/mids/woofers/sub). It's basically a configurable crossover. Need a hell of a set of ears to get them configured right if you don't have a fancy SPL (sound pressure level) meter though.

    Really though a passive crossover like the one in your door should be pretty cheap. You can make your own, but it's not worth fooling with it in my opinion - too much guess and check.
