basically, I bought the infinity reference series components for up front, and was
wondering if its absolutely necessary to use the crossover box they give you, I
just don't see a reason for it. There is pos and neg for the tweeter, and pos and
neg the the regular speaker, why the need for the crossover?
which leads to the next question...my passenger side is not sending anything to
the tweeter wire, but the speaker wire is working fine(I tested it on the tweeter
too, and the tweeter is fine, so it's defeinitely the tweeter wire) is there anything I
can do to fix this??? And if not, would it actually be possible to slice the speaker
wire and put it in the crossover box, and connect it to both the tweeter and the
My apologies for not making this shorter, but I wanted to make it as clear as
possible, but I really do appreciate any responses, thanks a lot. I hope I dont
have to just go to an electrical place.

The midrange would probably be ok, but the tweeters really need some sort of protection, as they dont handle much power anyways and by forcing them to play a full range of sounds (bass, midrange, tweeter, and they WILL try to play those even though you cant hear bass from a tweeter) the power handling drops considerably.
As far as your factory wires not giving you any sound, and I am assuming you have the fader/balance in the center, you may have some bad outputs.
I am also assuming the factory speakers didnt have any sound either. If they do, you dont have the speaker hooked up correctly.
What you may be running into is that the factory amplifier that is designed for that factory tweeter has a x-over already. You may have to listen REALLY close to be able to hear it. Hope that helps....
