I'm in the process of removing my door panels and stopped to come review what I had earlier seen posted by you. Now I'm also wanting to know about the tweeter install. I bought the same speakers described in the yellow bird thread but also have a crossover with tweeter to install.I have installed tweeters in top of the door panels tonight. Pictures show locations of screws and removal is pretty straight forward.
Hope yall enjoy.
The tweeters I used have built in crossovers. It's just a capacitor. No choke or coil.I'm in the process of removing my door panels and stopped to come review what I had earlier seen posted by you.

With your install did you not have a crossover to deal with or what? Should I just take a parallel circuit from the large speakers with the cross-over in between?
In the process of exposing as much as I can to sound insulate. Already a few more broken pieces of plastic than I was hoping for. You and KLP awesome for the help you've been. Documenting at the same time discovering is heroic.
I don't have pillar tweeters. Just the base radio. Either way you can't get the same sound from tweeters that don't point at your ears. I would have added these anyway.Joe from GA thank you so much! Did you disconnect the pillar tweeters or leave them in the mix? Thanx
Thanks for your help. Just as you said, sickening crunch but much less so knowing I was following footsteps.I wish I had taken a pic of the door card off but I don't think I did. There are two or three locating studs then about five or six push in clips around the perimeter of your door. Pull on the lower door pocket sharply, you will hear a sickening crunch and the panel will become slightly more loose. Repeat this all around then the skin lifts off over the door lock.
Wet because I had the door open for a while when I was distracted by another problem that came up. Van had a lot of water everywhere outside because of snow melting when it warmed up last night followed by heavy rain. All you see came from dripping above while exposed. Sadly I have no covered workspace to work in. It has been below freezing weather until today. Adds to the fun of it allNo idea but it is special!
Mine had nothing there but inner door skin. These are the mysteries that people who buy not build there vehicles never discover! Plug something in and see what happens?
You have got a lot of water in there, any idea how it got there? I had a little there on my van but could not find a way in - my best guess is around the side trim.
I left all the drip runs clear but my thinsulate is gonna be getting wet if your door is any indication.
I wouldn't fiddle with it too much until you confirm that it isn't the side impact sensor for the air bag system.Next question?
behind the speaker discovered there is the female half of a connector. Pretty certain nothing was plugged into it before panel came off and speaker removed. No males halves seem to be in reach. What is it?
That's a good guess. My van has the base vinyl seats so no built in airbags. Buffy does yours have seat airbags?
I've practically lived on your thread at times but I'm left with unanswered questions.You are talking to the wrong person to be talked off the ledge lol. I stopped short of removing the dash but removed the seats and kick plates on both sides. This allowed me to flip up the floor on both sides for access.
Revisit my thread for details, its all there!
bmet removed most of his floor, just to give you some ideas (pictures) http://www.fordtransitusaforum.com/ford-transit-general-discussion/37161-there-s-water-my.htmlTrying to find out now is if anyone has stripped the driver area down far enough to expose metal floor. Starting to think I need to be talked off the ledge. Can't expose the far reaches of the floor matt without loosening dash it appears. Where did you stop with sound insulation?
