redzone well i looked harder and found it..

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=314006

theres no crossover shown in the diagram so the tweeter might have one built in. i wonder what the impedance on the door speaker is then?

not in Canada for 2013... the Hatch base which is an SE has a 6 speaker..

ethier way i still think its a 4 channel amp with a crossover on the tweeter and the door speaker (im not positive teh door speaker has a crossover, ill have to stick my head down at the door and listen compared to the rear doors. .

Ive been trying to find wiring diagrams to no avail to confirm.

Okidoki78 Not sure, I don't have the Sony system, just upgraded the stock setup. But in previous cars, I would always take out the stock equipment and replace. FYI

redzone i was just looking at ways to reduce running wires.

i assume its still just a 4 channel amp on the hu and the tweeters and front door speakers share the same channel? idealy id like to buy some 6" mids and leave the stock tweeters but unsure how that would effect the amp.

Okidoki78 I'd use the supplied crossover, but thats just me. I'd want the speakers to work as intended. However, you could probably get away with using the stock amp/crossover.

redzone hello all. Does anyone know if the 6 speaker system has a built in crossover for the fronts?

Im wondering if i can just use the stock amp to power some high efficiency component speakers replace the tweeter and door speaker and rely on the stock crossover ?

or is it better to run the tweeter wire to the door and use the included crossover instead?

Cadger Tt69camaro, I assume you'd be using a LOC. I suggest using the rear speakers for a sub amp, and be sure to set up the amp crossover and such.
01-15-2013 08:54 PM
tt69camaro Interesting reading. What speakers (front or rear) provide the best signal for a sub amp? Thanks
