JBL Component Speaker Installation?

OKay, I am so lost. I got component speakers for my 1999 Honda Prelude and they came with a crossover, but what I don't get is how do I hook them up..? When I took the door panel off there was a wiring harness connected to the stock speaker and the stock tweeter, I figured I would just plug in my new speaker to where the old speaker was and same thing with the tweeter but everywhere I look says I plug the speaker/tweeter into the crossover. The thing I don't get though is how would I connect the crossover to my stereo?

Thanks in Advance

I'm not sure how much you know about audio but a crossover (passive) cuts the sound at certain pitches so that say a tweeter doesnt have to try to produce low frequencies like bass, giving you crisp highs. Depending on how good the crossover is the steeper the cutoff if you were to look at a chart.

Audio crossover - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You are going to have to snip the wires to be able to get the crossover wired in, making the factory plugs useless. I used bullet connectors on mine to make it clean and got a nice set of crimpers, use spade connectors on the speakers. They probably gave you a set in with the component speakers you bought.

Re: JBL Component Speaker Installation?

Here is another trick to making sure you get the correct wires to the speakers +/- connections. All you need is a 9 volt battery and your old speakers with about 3 inches of wire attached to them. What you will do is connect the wires to the battery terminals and watch with direction the speaker moves. If it is pushed out then you have the +/- correctly connected, if it is pulled in, then you need to reverse the connections. Once you figure out what wire is + and - then you can use the factory wires to connect your speakers or crossover to the correct inputs.

Hope it helps.
