Install them. One of a few things will happen, none are bad.
  • The factory had no crossover in-line, so you just saved your tweeter's life.
  • The factory crossover is set higher than the crossover you have, in which case your crossover is already in the crossed-over band and will make no audible change.
  • The factory crossover is set lower than the crossover you have, in which case you needed your crossover to protect your tweeters to Infinity's spec.
  • The factory crossover and your crossover are set at the same frequency, in which case the rolloff will increase and roll-off those unwanted frequencies at a steeper curve.
