Subaru Stars Tweeter Wiring for '06 2.5i

I was under the impression that our cars came from the factory with a tweeter, as there is a honey comb grill right next to the door handles on the front seats. I was surprised when I removed my front door card to find nothing but a female connector, but no tweeter.

With that said, I purchased a set of alpine type r components, which come with a separate tweeter. My question, is the little female connector a pre-wire for a tweeter that would go there, as the regullar wrx and limiteds do have tweeters? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

it's prewired for cars that have the premium sound system.

You don't want to use that wiring for you component set though.

Use the tweeter output on the crossovers that came with the components.

A crossover is what tells a mid to be a mid and a tweeter to be a tweeter. A coil on the mid keeps it playing up to a certain frequency, above which it gets screamy and nasty sounding, since it was not designed to cleanly play those frequencies (also the fact that a big ole speaker can't move fast enough to cleanly and clearly reproduce those frequencies). On the flip side, a tweeter is too small to cleanly produce frequencies BELOW a certain point, and a cap keeps it that way. The lower the frequency, the more the speaker has to move to produce sound at the same volume, and a little bitty tweeter can't do that, at least not for very long . The actual design of the crossovers is more complicated, but that's the basic function. There are ohms and slopes and such involved, but the end result is supposed to be a clean, level-matched (volume level, you don't want a tweeter way louder than the mid and vice versa) blending of the mid and tweeter without spikes (crossover points too close or at a slope too shallow) or gaps (crossover points too far or a a slope too steep).
