The tint guy has plugged the stereo speaker into the window motor, and the window sensor into the radio connector. Same connector type. Had this exact thing with mine. Need to remove door trim then sort the connectors out.

Unlikely, have a close look at connectors, the grey wires with black male connector needs to plug into brown wires / black female connector (into winder motor). Then the twisted pair speaker cable attached to speaker on door trim needs to plug into white connector block with the blue wires and other tweeter wire coming out. Pretty obvious when the penny drops...

See (actually listen) if you can hear the tweeters in the doors or not.
If you can't hear them, hqstu is probably correct in thinking the plugs for the tweeters & window connectors got switched.
Be sure if you're testing the driver's door that you have it closed while testing.
