renault speakers

from what ui can see from my renault scenic, the front speakers, the door speakers are a plain woofer with no tweeter, the tweeters are mounted up in the dash, there is a resistor, or xover in the loom going to the tweeter, this alows only sound above a certain frequency to get through to the tweeter, IF, x chance you put a tweeter in the door, making it a 2 way speaker, you would now have 2 tweeters in action,one in the door and the one up in the dash, which would be a bit abrasive, the other point is, if you have the wire polarity wrong then the sound would also be bad, there are plus and negative wiring to the speakers, perhaps when you fitted the alpine you reversed the polarity,also,if you didnt put rear speakers in, did u wire the rear speaker wires into the front, anf if so, are they correct polarity. you wont get a lot of quality sound from the 5.25 in speakers im afraid, unless you go for realy good quality, if you have a JAYCAR agency, over there, there response range have won a few awards for their small speakers
