LittleHoov,

I have heard that the DelPhi/GM HU in the later years produce 50w per channel.. So they aren't that bad...

Hook the tweets up just for the heck of it... I hooked mine up and they made a diffrence as the factory tweets are amined a little better... They are in no way optimum but it helped me more than I expected, as my 3 way speakera are at the bottom of the door and the Mid and Tweets are too low down... Its not going to hurt you to use the stock Tweets..

how would i go about hooking them up? just attach the wires to the metal area around were the wiring harness plugs into? like the stock speakers were wired? red=positive red/black=negative right? and i would need a soldering gun correct? or is there any other way to do it?

You might be able to use a female spade connector and/of a tap-in connector. Either way I'd take a ride to Radio Shack.

even most high end aftermarket units do not put out 50watts RMS.

My considerable paint skills at work:





Now to clarify, just use the small part of wiring that SHOULD come with your new speakers, and cut the factory end off of your original wiring. wire the + and - to the pioneers that you have and twist them together, then twist the (stripped) tweeter wires onto those. So you will have three wires joined together. Then solder and electric tape them. Then just mount the pioneer as the door speaker is originally, running the tweeter wire through the little hole. This will give you the same wiring as the factory did, the tweeter in parallel with the main feed. All should be well.

I doubt the factory tweet is better than the one in your Pioneer, but the factory tweet is definitely aimed better. All in all, I'd recommend going a third route and getting separates. Put a tweet where the tweet goes, and put a low/mid in the larger hole. Seriously, the factory door openings are made for that setup, so why not just go with it? Can you return your Pioneers and get some separates?

Alternatively, if you do go with wiring up the factory tweet, consider disconnecting the tweet on your Pioneer if it'* too tweety.
