The dash speaker plug is different from the door speaker plugs so they won’t work. Don’t cut off your dash speaker plugs. Just tap into each wire and extend it to your replacement speakers. I did this a few days ago.
Use wire strippers to score the wire insulation behind the factory plug and pulled the insulation to each side to expose the copper wiring. Be careful not to damage any copper strands. Wrap your new wiring around the exposed copper and solder it. Seal it up and you’re done. The factory plugs will still be there in case you ever need them again. 

Yes, that's my plan but it would be nicer to find a connector. Just seems strange that the connectors would be available for the doors but not for the dash.

I have tons of different pins in different sizes and I'm sure one would slide right in to the stock connector. You could just pin the tweeter wires,slide them in and tape it off securely. Way better than cutting any factory wire.

 

Some people don't mind cutting into their factory wire and I'm definitely not one of them.....:)

I spoke with JH1973 and we briefly discussed the pin idea. I think I have some pins somewhere that I will try to see if they fit and if they do I will make note of the size. If that doesn't pan out, I have some posi-taps on order. These: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SLVS2CM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Here are a few pics of the Bose door speaker and connectors, unfortunately, they are 2 ohms in typical Bose fashion. The Metra and knock-off Amazon adapters I bought feel like they will fit but it’s tight. I did not want force them in.

Is the one in your hand there what you need to fit pins into? Can you take a picture that good of the male pins that go into those from the stock tweeter? 

 

I just want to see what style the male pins are.

Excellent amount of information here, glad that I've gone through it all.

 

I'm going to install a component set in front this weekend and as I'm going through my steps I'm trying to figure out where to install the crossover to be able to tie into both the door and dash speaker wires? My thought is that if I place the crossover in the door itself I'd have to run new wire out the door and to the stock dash location which seems like a huge hassle to get through the harness in the door. I'm open to installing the tweeter on the upper door trim at the bottom/front of the window and just unplugging the dash speakers and leaving them there but if I can easily place them in the dash I'd rather do that. What have some of you guys done?

I mounted my tweeters in the door, this was the “best” location without having to do too much modification to the door panel itself. Right, wrong, I dunno but worked for me. I’ll take better pics if needed but it’s right above the 6.5s behind the door. I went with JL audio C2 components

I didn't give that location a thought but it's definitely a good idea now that I see it. It would save me from pulling the upper door trim off too. I've got the Fosgate P165-SE to go in there. Thanks for the idea!

You didn't happen to measure the rear doors did you?

      My battery died in my 2017 Tahoe, and I was able to jump start it. However, I now have no sound from my radio. It powers on, and I can play songs from my phone through Bluetooth connection.  
        Any ideas what's wrong or how to correct this?

      For those of you looking to setup your own MultiPro tailgate speaker system, well HERE YOU GO! Wiring harnesses and amplifier brackets to make your project super easy!! No splicing or hacking away at your expensive factory wiring! I have a limited number of the items in stock, 10 or so of each, with more that will be ready next week!
      When I did mine, I used the Soundstream ST4.1000DB bluetooth amp (and I am very pleased with it so far), so all of the options are available as plug and play with that particular amp. Or you can just get a harness with a pigtail that will give you 12v+ power and ground in your inner tailgate, so you can wire it up to whatever you want. Don’t forget to check out the options for adding lights and the speaker wiring harness to make the whole system truly PLUG & PLAY. so much better sound than the Kicker system for a lot less money!
      All items come with complete installation instructions (with pictures, ha)!
      Let me know if you have any questions!

      I recently installed two audio control amplifiers (D.4-800 and LC-800) coupled with infinity kappa CSX 90 and CSX 60 component system for the highs and (2) P3 15” subs for the lows. 
       
      I’m having trouble getting a frequency ranges from 15 kHz to 35 kHz from the factory radio to the amp.
       
      We double checked the wiring coming in from all the inputs from the Bose system and everything checks out.
       
      I am very disappointed with the way my new system sounds. Do any of you guys know what’s the fix on this?
       
      Long story short my tweeters sound like ******.

      Hey everyone,
       
      I bought a 2010 1500 recently and only the front passenger speaker, tweeter and front driver side tweeter are working along with the radio itself. I tried changing the front driver side speaker with no luck. Are there any fuses for individual speakers?
