can you expand on that tweeter wiring? I hate the stock 6 speaker system so I'm looking at doing an upgrade in stages.

Stage 1: Stock radio -> 5 channel amp -> stock speakers and 12" xtant sub
Stage 2: Components up front, coaxes in rear doors
Stage 3: JL Cleansweep (if i decide i need it)

The car is a lease so I can't cut anything apart. I'm hoping that I can go 4 channel out of the stock radio into the amp and 4 channel out of the amp to the stock wiring, so my question is; do the tweeters have a separate connection to the stock radio or are they crossed-over from the same output as the fronts. Wiring diagram/photos would be much appreciated.

I've found that giving the stock speakers a better signal (i.e. putting an amp in-line) is a bigger bang for the buck than spending money on good speakers and wasting them on the tiny little amp in a head unit (stock or otherwise.) Also interested to know if anyone's done this on this system and if it makes a difference.
