Help 0003 8" camo coax

I own 2 sets of camo coaxials mounted in my 1999 Jeep Cherokee and just bought a set of rx5s. My plan is to turn the set in the front doors into components. I would like some suggestions 1- whether to run the coax off the HP side of crossover? 2-run it together off the input side of crossover? or 3-clip the tweeter from the coax and run off the HP side of crossover? I bought them just for the crossovers and tweeters. Beat's the hell out of paying 325 bucks for some 8" Focals or way better deal than a set of DLS coaxials. They sound as good as the aforementioned if not louder. Great mid bass. It took a little work to get em in there but well worth the effort. I'm hoping to get better imaging with outboard tweeters?

Default Re: 8" camo coax

Let me make the scenario clearer. I bought the components online dirt cheap to convert my 8" camo coax into a component system. There are 3 ways to hook them up without using the 5 1/4 mids. I just reread my post and was confused a bit.

Thanks for any suggestions

If you are going to install the tweeters from the RX5S, you can disconnect the tweeter on the Camo Coaxial and use the crossover from the RX5S for the tweeter and the Camo 8", just connect them to the crossover like any component system. If you are not going to use the tweeter from the RX5S, then disconnect the wires from the crossover assembly on the Camo 8" and connect the tweeter and Camo 8" just as you would any component system.

If that doesn't answer your question, post back. Your post is a bit hard to follow.

Thank You Re: 8" camo coax

Thanks Heavy. I was unsure if the tweeters in the components was the same tweeter as in the coax's. One more question please Heavy can I paint the tweeter housing OD (olive drab)?

Absolutely, just take the tweeter assembly part, gently, and then prep and paint.
