    Question Firebird hatch speakers...i think i messed up

    Bought a set of 5x7's for the hatch [ws.6 w/monsoon]. They are 4ohm with a midrange and tweeter but only have 1 set of terminals. How can i hook them up using the stock wiring? Should I wire the mid's to the terminals, and the high's into the two wires that extend from the cone into the tweeter? Or should i return them and get speakers with 2 sets of terminals

    the hatch isn't 2ohm, it's 4ohm. the hatch is powered straight from the Head unit. you're posts are worthless

    but you started talkin about 2ohms for what then? to see yourself type

    so if i connect the mids, won't the tweeter be rendered useless? it won' have any high's going to it? or is the signal from the HU a full-range signal? Riddle me that, bish!

    ok, update to this;

    as i said, the speakers I bought only have 1 line in but are 2-way speakers. I tried just using the wires from the stock mids to power them, but the tweeters didn't sing at all; it just sounded muddy. So i actually cut and tapped the lines from the terminals into the tweeters and mated those with the lines that use to go to the stock tweeter. OMG it was much more brilliant sounding.

    In the end, i highly suggest a 5x7 with 2 lines in [a mid and a high] so that you don't have to deal with the aggrevation of all this cutting and splicing that i had to.

    so far my set up consists of the following and I am very pleased:

    stock H/U, monsoon amp and wireing
    front: TBA
    sails: Elemental Designs 6.5" eu700s
    hatch: kenwood 5x7 KFC-C5780ie
