    2002 DeVille Base Stereo Sounds Pretty Good - Why Change?

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for reading this post and sharing your opinions and experience. My 2002 Deville right door speaker is "blapping", I'm sure it's probably busted. I thought it might be a good time to upgrade both front door speakers with some new 3-way's, but an Alpine manual said that I need to disconnect the OEM tweeters because it will harm the Alpine tweeter running them parallel in the circuit. I'm starting to think that I might just replace the OEM speaker with a new one and not monkey around with the base system. Would getting some new 3-ways and disconnecting the front tweeters be the better way to go? And are there any other pitfalls, like installation headaches, weird wiring harnesses or ???? Thanks for relating your experiences, it is much appreciated!

    The stock tweeters are just where they should be for a proper soundstage. 2/3 way speakers (multiple drivers in one assembly) are better than single cone speakers, but not as good as component speakers (multiple separate drivers that are mounted separately - your stock setup).

    I would suggest just replacing it with a stock speaker.

    That's definitely the way I'm leaning. Thanks for the advice and that's a sweet STS!
