Okay, I have tried to use the "search" button, but came up with nothing in my situation.

I have a 92 Lexus SC400 and I am replacing all the speakers, except the tweeters in the pillars (only thing that works). I am adding 4'' 2-ways(Apline) to the doors, but I want to run them without a crossover (full range), at the same time using my exsisting tweeters. *Running off of DEH-4900I* no amp.  Would I do this buy just running my wires from the 4'' to the tweeters, or would that drop the load to 2 ohm and hurt the speakers?

you can parrallel them off the 4" and drop the load to 2ohms, which won't hurt the speakers, but your pioneer deck may shut down from time to time.  I haven't tried to run that low of an impedance off a pioneer head-unit that I can remember.

The factory tweet has a cap built onto it, so it has it's own "crossover."

The "best" thing to do is to not use the factory tweeters or to replace the speaker system with a proper set of components.  Adding a tweeter to a speaker system with a tweeter (your coaxials that you are installing in the door) generally leads to ass-like sound quality.

"ass like" huh? Well I to agree, but 4'' components doesn't seem to be a dime a dozen like 5 1/4 + are...   But Thanks for the help. I hope to find a decent component system soon.

Again, the point of my recommendation is to NOT use the existing factory tweeters.  If you are adding coaxials into the doors, disconnect the factory tweeters.  If you want a 4" component set, yes these can be difficult to find.  Memphis and MTX used to make a 4" set, but not sure if they still do.  With a little fab work, a standard woofer size can be made to fit into the door.
