Default Coaxials in front with stock h/u? '08

Please help, has anyone replaced the component fronts with coaxials? The key is keeping the stock h/u.

I'm making an assumption that the lines in to each speaker have already been through an active crossover.

From what I've read, replacing the tweets can be quite a job and all I want is a relatively simple upgrade in sound.

Can't directly answer your question, but the tweeters in the Gen7 (2008-2012) are in the A-pillar trim. Easy to unsnap and service.
