what dont you understand?

+ on woofer goes to + on xover for the woofer
- " " " - " " "
same with tweets.

then there should be one set of +/- left, that does to the amp.

Have you ever installed components before? if not, you could be looking at a very long and boring day. haha

i understand which goes to which, but i don't understand if i should use the existing wires for the woofers or not. some ppl told me yes, and some said no. so im confused.

When you say existing wires, do you mean the ones from the factory?

I just installed a component set in my Integra. I ran the "existing wires" into the crossover, then with the two set of wires coming out the other side of the crossover I ran the pair for the woofers to the woofers, and the pair meant for the tweeters to the tweeters.

Your factory wires will go into the input of the crossover (+ and - corresponding). Then the tweeters will connect to the high pass output on the crossover. Run a set of wires from the low pass output on the crossover to the woofer. Viola. Easy as a drunken college gerl on spring break :p
