    I'm trying to visualize this... how can a tweeter and speaker (mid?) be wired in series?

    I dont know how, but Front left and front right wires are 4 ohms... So they have some sort of wiring, maybe two 8ohms in parallel to 4, not sure.

    Typically factory wiring puts them in parallel, with a blocking (hipass) capacitor on the tweeter. An ohmmeter only measures the mid because of the cap.
