    Front door speaker replacement question

    I have a 2005 9-5 Arc wagon, with the 8 speaker Prestige stereo. I'm considering replacing the left and right dash corner and front door speakers.

    I understand that the signal to the front door and dash speakers is split so that the bass goes to the front door speaker and the midrange/treble goes to the dash speakers. There don't seem to be any good aftermarket options for the dash speaker. The 3-1/2" midrange speakers that would fit really are just midrange, without any treble range above 10,000 Hz or so.

    The other option that seems available would be to get a 6-1/2 component speaker, with the 6-1/2 speaker going into the front door, and the tweeter in the dash. But given that the dash speaker is supposed to handle midrange and treble, I don't know if putting a tweeter there will work.

    Any experience from anyone who replaced the front door and dash speakers would be welcome. Thanks!

    Crutchfield supposedly has speakers that will work in the dash as well as front doors. Just keep in mind that you are running on a 2ohm system.
    I chatted with them thru their website and they claim that the speakers they have will work. I just couldn't justify the cost on my Saab as it's pretty beat up.
