    so you were gonna mount the mids in back and tweets up front? or re-wire your car? it's quite easy to use the xover with a stock radio

    yea but you would have to run wire from your headunit to the tweeters, and then you'd be running active and i assume the deck has no active crossover? mount the xover in the door where the main speaker leads are from the factory and then wire in your mids and tweets

    In the doors works fine, just be sure it's between the door panel and the inner sheetmetal so that the xover won't get wet.
