Thanks in advance for any assistance,

How would go about wiring up the crossover then, since there are separate wires running to the tweeter and the mid in the stock setup?

Hopefully it uses similar crossover points to the aftermarket crossover

Here is a link to someone that replaced the Sony's with JL's. Maybe it can help out.

If I was going to replace the speakers and keep the amp I would use raw drivers instead of a component set. No point paying for crossovers you won't use
