ugh, where to start
1. did u replace your front or rear speakers?
2.if you replaced the fronts, did u replace them with components or just 2/3ways?
3.do you have an aftermarket headunit as well?
4.did you remove any remaining speakers if replaced the front?
on the premium sound system you have 8 speakers, 6 front 2 rear. in order to hook up an aftermarket head unit which would only have four speaker channels, u have to run your front speakers in a series by connecting some wires that were going through your factory amp. so if you have an aftermarket headunit then you would most likely get the same signal from either of those sets u mentioned. however, if you're still running the stock headunit you would get different signals from the amp on each of those. if it is the front speakers you are replacing and you're swapping in a set of 2/3ways, depending on the quality speaker u got, u may get better performance leaving the stock tweeter in place and utilizing the new speaker for mid/lows. personally tho, since you start out with components up front from the factory, i dont see why you'd replace them with anything other than upgraded components as they're going to give you the best sound. components speakers are the multiple speaker sets by the way, usually containing a midrange/tweeter/crossover.
hope this helps

The installer bypass the stock amp, I acutally installed the front speakers myself...I took out the stock one and drill it fukin through.. and I hook up the red and black wires to it..I had an installer to do the rears. My sound system sounds damn sharp...why's that? Maybe i just listen to it too much or something... I just want to make it sound goood....
