pggy back the tweets off the front speakers and piggy back the rear door speakers off the rear deck speaker. Your losing power to each individual speaker but thats how youc an hook them up. ALso put a crossover before the tweeters so you can send high notes only to the tweets.

If you want to use all 8 speakers you need to pay attention to whether you wire the pairs in series or in parallel. Series wiring halves the load and the volume, and parallel doubles it just like with subs. So if you parallel two 4 ohm speakers you are asking your amp to push a 2 ohm load on that channel. Make sure it can handle it.

If you want to add a high pass crossover to the tweeter you can simply add a cap in line with that driver. Google "high pass crossover" for more info. Same applies to the other driver. Or use a 2-way crossover.

No they should have adapter plates if need be.

And if you leave the tweeters disconected you sound is gonna sound like ass.

tweeters give you the high end ( voice), The door should have either mid range ,(which produces the mid to low tones.

The tweeters wire right into the crossover if you got the mid ranges connected just wire in the cross over and the tweeters.

None. Cuz nine times out of ten its the same speaker. They just call it different things and put 6 3/4" plate in the box for people with so called oversized 6 1/2" openings. Also, you need to hook up the tweeters.
