Do the tweeters in the truck add anything? Or are they too far back. Wondering if the tweeters are that far away from the cones in the doors, will there be a delay in sound? I am going to eventually amp the entire system so I am putting top of the line speakers in all around.
They're not tweeters, they're a 3.5" mid range speaker...same as the dash.
I do not think it'd be worth the time or money to replace them.
Keep in mind that components are different from a 2 way speaker. If you get a component and you don't use the tweeter, you have a midbass driver, not a full range speaker. You'd be missing a large piece of the frequency range if you just used a midbass driver in the rear doors. **Edited this because I misread your question. I think if you put the tweeters from the door speakers in the rear pillars, it'd sound very bad....especially since there 3.5" speakers there now. The soundstage would be very off, and being mounted so high, sound would bounce everywhere making it very unbalanced. I'd stick with 2 way speakers for the rear doors and leave the rear pillars as is"
These are the Focals i'm going with in the rear doors. Focal Integration IC 165 6-3/4" 2-way car speakers at Crutchfield.com
Which Focals did you go with in the front? I was going to go with HAT, but have decided on Focal ISS 690's...seeing they sell them on Amazon and I can use points
