Front Speaker R&R

Removing the front stocks in my 2011 LS soon. Bought some MBQuart Components -

Not going to install my amp at this time, just R&R the front door speakers for now.

My question. Do I skip the crossover for now and just pull the stock tweet - plug in the new tweet, pull the stock 6.5" (modify cup to hold new 6.5") and plug in the new 6.5" and work with that?

Or do I need to find wires "X-Y-Z" and tap off them to the x-over and out to the new speakers from there?

Thanks in advance -

***Stereo parts already in possession: 2-Kicker Comp 10'[email protected], HiFonics Brucus 1200w ([email protected]), amp wiring, front door speakers, Alpine 4x50 amp - 50 sf. of 80 mil FatMat - all items new in box - just waiting for the time to do it right.

If anyone has replaced the rear 6x9's with either 6x9 or 6.5 (adapters), I'd love to hear recommendations and wattage used for them. Thanks.

Thanks for the welcome...

I'm pretty hip on how to remove them and even alter the existing speaker cups to hold the new ones ....

My concern was, in reading wiring diagrams I've found, it shows 2 wires (pos/neg) sent FROM HEAD UNIT (stock) to each speaker (Tweeter/Woofer) in the doors.

This would make it hard to feed the new Crossover 1-set of +/- wires for the input signal.

Can anyone verify the wires that I'll UNPLUG from the STOCK WOOFER (6.5") will be full-range and that would be the one I feed to the NEW crossover?

I've seen this done in other threads, but it doesn't jive with what the wiring diagrams I've seen that show a +/- wire sent to the tweeter and a +/- wire sent to the woofer FROM THE stock head unit.

The wiring diagrams could be inaccurate as well.

I guess I'd like to know where the wires that feed the stock tweeter come from. Since I'll be omitting them if I use ONLY the woofer wires to feed my new crossover.
