Considering upgrading my speakers in my 2010. I really don't want to mess with the head unit since I like XM, Bluetooth, wheel controls, etc. But, I really like my music and would like a decent set of speakers.
I called Crutchfield and the advisor told me that the rear speakers would not get the full sound spectrum unless the head unit is replaced. Evidently the speakers are driven by two separate amps? One for highs another for lows?
Also he said I could replace the front panel speakers with full range speakers (built in tweeter) and cut the wires to the factory tweeter so as to not get too much of the high end?
Please share your thoughts and thanks for the info.
I have heard good things about SKAR on other forums.
But like 22s says.. just hook a component set up to your factory wiring, if you don't like the tweeter in the pillars running at the same time, just unhook it, or install your new tweeters in that location(removing the old ones), but IMO that isn't the best placement for tweeters, AND it will require some modifications if it's anything like other GMs with the tweeters in the pillars.
I used Pioneer Premier Components in my front. 6*9 4 way in the rear deck. I was able to replace my factory tweeters with the Pioneers. And added a 2800 Hz crossover in the leads. Or you could get Components. Keep the factory tweeters. Crossovers are built in. Just change the Midwoofers.
