You're welcome.

PS: FYI, I used a short length of wire to make the connection from the factory tabs to the JL tabs. Not knowing the strength of the JL tabs, I did not want to bend them over and solder them. Also, I used silicone adhesive on the back side of the JL to adhere them to the factory mountings. For good measure I put a bead of silicone sealer on the outside speaker lip as well.

And BTW, you'll need a T30 bit to remove the tweeter mounting screws

PS: Here is the back side of the front door woofer in its housing after I de-soldered the factory speaker terminals. Note the 2ohm marking
