Ok here goes i'm trying to fit my new speakers dumbass me thought i'd just need to take the old speakers out cut the wire trim it back and solder onto the new 1's.My question is what do i do with the crossover boxes that i got with them do i need to install these without a amp or wait till i get a amp? I've only got the 2 speaker wires that will be soldered onto the new speaker so how do i connect the crossover? Hope somebody can help a idiot like me :bang: :bang:

you feed the signal(speaker) wires from the headunit to the crossover.
you then connect the speakers to the correct connections on the crossover.
an amps better but the HU will run it

here's some pics of the crossover its got IN + - , WF +-, TW +-, & -3dB
If the speaker cable goes into the crossover box do i need to buy extra speaker cable to wire up to the new speakers? otherwise theres no cable going to them thats what i dont understand

i dont know what you struggling with
you use the wire already in place to the crossover box
you then use the supplied(or should be) from the crossover to the two speakers

Thats where i'm struggling i've no wires with the crossover box!! so i'd be putting the speaker & tweeter wires in with no wires to connect to speakers looks like i have to buy some speaker wire :cry:

Will go halfords later 2nite to get some cable i know the woofer & tweeters go in the WF & TW Bits not sure what cable would go in the In-+ bit

Have you checked that the speaker fits in the hole with the window down because it looks like you have a Punto MK2 and there is very little clearance there.

use the original wires you cut off the original speaker this goes to IN+-!

run a wire from the (tweeter)TW +- to the crossover TW+- ensuring the correct polarity!

Run another length of wire from your (woofer)WF+- to the crossover WF+- ensuring the correct polarity!

mount speaker in the speaker hole!

find a suitable place to mount your crossover!

mount your tweeters where you want them!

job done!:)

to solve that problem you need to locate the crossovers behind the dash.

there is a 2 core wire going from the headunit ot the each door, you cut that wire behind the dash. then you have 2 ends of the wire, one goes to the door speaker, connect that to the WF. connect the other end to the IN. now run a new 2core wire from TW to the tweeter through the dash. (ignore the -3bd if you are fitting tweeters on dash) that is the easiest method and it only requires new wire to be fitted for the tweeter, nothing else.
