    Tweeters?

    I was looking for some help,
    I just buought 2 amps, 2 subs and 4 speakers. I replaced all the speakers and installed the amps, wired it all, and they all work great, I am using RCA. Obviously, I do not have an RCA connection for the tweeters, I didn't think I would notice a difference, because my head unit wiring harness (before new amps and speakers) did not have an input for tweeters, so I'm assuming they were wired to the front speakers. My music just sounds hollow now though.

    I guess I'm asking what is the easiest way to get my tweeters back? Is there anyway I can avoid the amp altogether and somehow just use the head unit? I have the Kenwood KVT-614, and am driving a 2003 dodge stratus coupe, with stock tweeters.

    Thanks for all your help.

    The tweeters were most likely connected to the front speakers.You need to pull the front speakers back out and look for either
    some wires not connected to anything or a small plug not connected to anything.(the wires for the front speakers should be,front left + Dark Green.Front left - Brown/Red.Front right + Violet.Front right - Dark Blue/Red)If you find these wires connect them to your other wires on the new front speakers making sure to match the positive and negative correctly and your tweeters should work again.Hopefully they will be able to handle the additional power of your new amplifier,and have some sort of passive crossover in line to help protect them from low frequencies.I had to do the same thing in a friends 95 Caddy for him.



    If it don't have a system in it,I ain't drivin it.
