The stock wiring is split, sending signal to the woofer and tweeter, though it's though a single channel. If you go with a component like mine, you install a crossover so only the proper signals are passing through the tweeter. With a coaxial, the crossover is built in. All this to say you're already running out of a 4 channel stock amp, so you're golden. The amp gave a real sonic boost, and I love how easy it is to set up. It's a huge improvement over stock, but the DSP still hampers the sound. The next step is a signal processor. If you need help with the setup, I've tore the car apart numerous times, so I'm glad to share whatever wisdom i may have stumbled across.
