Aftermarket HU upgrade and tweeters issue...
 
I just realized that in Laredo Base Audio, tweeters are wired in-parallel to the front door speaker. According to wjjeeps.com they are wired like this:

However, the problem is when you upgrade your HU, these parallel speakers drop the impendence of front channel in half! It means that this wiring will cause two 4ohm front speakers (Left or Right), to operate at 2ohm! So instead of having a 4 ohm channel, you'll end up with a 2 ohm channel. Since I did not read this anywhere else, I thought it is worth to mention the issue here.

Im not sure, but when I did all my upgrades, as far as i knew this wasnt a problem unless you had the infinity sound system. I could very well be wrong, call crutchfield, or lookup a place called westminster speed and sound and call them. Theyve always been spot on when I called with questions.
