Question about component speaker install?

I have a question about component speakers *cough cough lilmisslude cough*. I had some really crappy component speakers installed recently and I went and picked up another pair, and I was just wondering if I'm going have to replace the crossovers again or if I can stick with the same crossovers and tweeters and just connect the new component speakers? Thanks in advanced!

Re: Question about component speaker install?

I would make a visual inspection of the crossover. Look for residue on the terminals or any of the components inside the crossover.

Orange - Rust = Replace
Green - Electrical Corrosion/breakdown of copper = Replace
White - Oxidization = Will probably still work but its life is limited.

Are you replacing the speakers with the same size/brand? If not, I would still swap out the crossover. Each speaker, even minutely, measures differently and it would be considered a BEST practice to use the manf crossover that came with it.

Re: Question about component speaker install?

okay then, where would the crossovers be mounted, i've seen it mounted right behind the speakers, or in the dash. if it is right behind the speaker, could i just take it out, and replace it, or should i rewire it completely, and the component speakers are about 2 months old, i doubt it would have rusted or corroded.

thanks for the answer :D

Re: Question about component speaker install?

I recomend keeping the crossovers inside the cabin. Placing them in the door is asking for early failure.
Didnt know they were that new. I would still re-wire it, use the factory wire that is there to "pull" a new replacement wire throught the grommet. Since you are going to have it apart, why not do it right so your speakers will last a very long time and provide you with hours and hours of entertainment?
