I just got my comps in today and I see that there are two really weak look wires on the tweets. They appear to be soldered on there. Would there be any harm in removing the stock wire and soldering my own 12-gauge on there?

do you mean that stock wiring on the vehicle for the factory tweets? or the ones in the aftermarket tweets?

If it is the wire on the tweet. Do not bother. They were made to last so why redo it if nothing is broken.

Save yourself the headache and just leave the wire there. The manufacturer knows what they are doing and would not attach too small of a wire to their own tweeter.

Aftermarket, same one you have - the ACS265s. :D
Decided to keep the 4150xxk, I'll be using it to power these and a sealed Koda 10. I'll probably upgrade the midbass if I am not satisfied with it at a later date with a pair of Extremis powered by a 2100xxk.

Yeah, this is true. I am just concerned about signal interference since I will be running the x-overs in a fairly distant spot (trunk)

Nah, just tap into the tweets- its what I did, all Rainbows come that way-as said above manufacturer has its reasons

Are you planing on bridging the 4150? or are you running rear fill?

when I bridged my 4150 to them gain was not even up to ~ 1/4 way...be very careful...

Yeah, I talked to Brad about this and he said make sure I keep the gain as low as possible. As for now, I am going to be going to the HD for some MDF...time to start the amp rack!
