Usually the crossovers are included when buying Componants. Nothing special to install really.

I just got all polk interiors and was blown away, with a factory radio too!
Wasn't a direct fit though...took some time to install.
Yeah they came with crossovers..

Just make sure they fit! You could fairly easily go up to a 6.5 inch component set with a little modification. If youve got the factory tweeters in your car you could put the component tweeters in that spot for a totally stock look. Also, with components it would be a good idea to think about an external amp for them. They will sound good either way but you can get a little more out of them with an amp. Another thing, when your installing the components, your crossovers might have an adjustment to turn down the tweeter. You should try both settings and see what you like better.

I found a space in behind my door panel where I was able to stick the crossover. I sealed it from the inside of the door with a piece of vinyl.

I put mine inside door panel behind where the reflector is... and the 6x9 ones mounted right next to the 6x9s.
I had the guys at work help me (Circuit City) in car audio and it is soooo clean looking, i love it.
