    Default help a n00b with db6501 crossover

    I have a stock system in an '04 GTO and want to install the db6501 system. The stock system has tweets in the dash and speakers in the door panels. I assume I wire the new speakers to crossover but what I don't know is what do I wire to the crossover input?

    and cancel the imput of the original tweets.

    The db6501 is a component speaker system if I'm not mistaken.

    This means it comes with tweeters, midwoofers, and a pair of crossovers.

    Each crossover should have 3 sets of +'s and -'s.

    The +'s and -'s on the far left is where the amp hooks up to.

    The middle set of +'s and -'s is where the midwofer hooks up to.

    The +'s -'s on the far right is where the tweeter hooks up to.

    It's in the manual.

    That's what I thought. But how do I cancel the imput of the tweets? Do I just leave the original speaker wire hangin'?

    Actually, you want to use the signal for the tweeters. Just leave the door speaker harness tucked away in the door somewhere so it doesnt get tangled in the window track.
