When replacing the woofer and tweeter with an aftermarket two way speaker system, you should leave the OE midrange speaker in place if you continue to use the OE amp. The OE audio system uses an active x-over and divides up the speaker output at the amp. No x-over is required so throw the aftermarket x-over away. If you disconnect the OE mid, you will lose the entire midrange.
