put them in the a pillars. for wiring them if your running them off an amp you will have to run wires from the amp to the a pillars for the tweets. if your going to power them off the deck then you will have to run wires from the front speaker outputs on the deck to the a pillars however if your running them off the deck then you cant run the other door speakers off the deck to.

go with the double sided tape idea and move it around until you find a place that you like the sound of and then do it again to make sure its a good spot for you.

MAKE SURE that the tweeters are run through the crossovers or you blow the tweeters/

That box with terminals that come with a component set.

It sends the correct frequencies to the tweeter and mid.

go behind the radio to the front left and front right speaker wire sets you'll want to military splice into these and run your speaker wire respectively, you will also need passive crossovers to remove the bass, also called bass blockers. personally, i would just get a good set of 5 way speakers and install those, youll get about the same sound and a ton less work!!
