I took some pictures of the brackets while I had them off, let me know if you want them. I always have problems posting pictures on here.
Thanks! Yeah, I'd like pictures, if you want you can send them to my e-mail, chrs.pollak@gmail.com

What difference would it make if the wiring is there or not?

My understanding of installing component speakers would be the following:

1) Remove factory speakers
2) Re-route wires formerly going to factory speakers to the input of the crossover box
3) Install wiring from crossover box output to the subwoofer
4) Install wiring from crossover box output to the tweeter

Either way, thanks for the answer.. Now the challenge would be to find a 6.5" set of components. Crutchfield does not have that big of a selection, most of the components they sell that "fit" the 2012 are 5 1/2"
