I had these speakers in my old truck, so the money was already spent on them, and they had been sitting in the box not doing anything.

Looking over that thread, it looks like the JL crossover has the option to have separate inputs for the tweeter and mid, mine has only the single input line.

Could I just bypass the stock tweeter wires and run from the amp to the crossover using the door speaker wire? Or does the sony amp remove the higher frequencies from that line?

From that article it sounds like there are active crossovers in the amp which would mean that the tweeter frequencies would be removed. I would run them without the crossover you have.

I swapped mine out with focal k2p. At first I hooked up the factory tweeter wire directly to focal tweeter. Sounded ok for a little bit, loud but tingy. I have know added the audison bit ten digital processor and the focal crossovers and it woke everything up.

Installed four of these this past weekend, and that's the best $100 I've spend in a while. The clarity and the bass is remarkably better.
