Audio crossover preinstalled?

Hello,

I am upgrading my front door speakers to an Alpine set, but I guess I do not have to use the crossover that comes in the box?
As there already are separate cables for treble and woofer speaker, I suppose there are an audio crossover installed?

Greetings from Sweden,

Jonas

It depends what you are replacing, but I would put the crossover in anyway, as unless someone has installed a very expensive, non standard "Active" system, it will be required.

Response to myself

Hi, today I got my adapter rings so I just replaced the original tweeter with my new Alpine, and the same for the woofer. I used the cables that already were in the door, and did not use the crossover. Result?
Great! OK, some more bass would not hurt, but sound quality is great.

Looking forward to spring.....must keep the car in the garage for a long winter first..
