Yes, exactly. I plan on tapping into them as shown here.

Using the factory speaker wire doesn't give me warm and fuzzy feelings... I'm thinking it'll be better to run new wire. I've already dinked around with the front speakers, and the wire that's going to them now is pretty tiny, looks to be 18 AWG, so I'd like to avoid it if I can. Plus if I used the factory wires it'd mean I'd have to cut them at some point, which I'd like to avoid in the case that I have to revert the system to stock for some reason.

I'm a little apprehensive of threading the new wire into the doors-- hopefully it won't be too difficult.
