That is frickin' ill man... I like the rear setup... we will see if I decide to go that route.anotherwhitecar said:I just got a pair of Infinity Reference 6010cs components and they sound unbelievable. (I'm a classical musician and although if I'm listening to stuff with 'bump', I like 'bump', but I generally prefer clarity and accuracy.)
Anyways, my friend and I installed them in the rear (and before you start with the flames, I had my reasons!), and we placed the tweeters in the rear pillar. We had questions about mounting depth, but there's a perfectly placed hole in the sheet metal behind the trim piece that allowed us to install the adjustable mounts.
I am highly motivated to install them in the triangular area where the side mirrors are in the door.anotherwhitecar said:Thanks Hamzter. Yeah, I'm really happy with how they look and work back there.
But I'm probably going to ditch my current front speakers and get some components there too. (Most likely the Infinity Reference 5010cs)
I'll probably mount in the stock locations, or has anyone thought of, or installed tweeters in triangular plastic trim piece that covers the mounting area of the side mirrors?
What speakers are you installing by the way?hamzter said:I am highly motivated to install them in the triangular area where the side mirrors are in the door.
might happen sooner than later... Since the car will be parked I can tear apart the ride and figure out where I will install them... Stay Tuned... or recommend to me where... I am open to suggestions.
Yes in the A Pillar would be great. The Other option is up high on the A Pillar would work if you don't have the Auto Seatbelts. Unfortunately I do... :*(anotherwhitecar said:What speakers are you installing by the way?
I'd think that installing the tweets in the pillars would have the best imaging. Unless it's physically unreasonable, I'm gonna try to install mine there.
One of the problems of installing in the door is that when you're driving, your arm can get in the way of the left tweeter and kinda kill the highs from that side. Might be the same with the triangular plastic trim option too....
Or if you really wanna go nuts, you could take a page out of the Miata book and mount the tweets in your headrest! :shock:
I am getting brave with the fiberglass. I might just FB the tweeter housing so that it is angled. Thinking about it.junknstuff said:corner pieces of the side mirrors would be perfect as well. i would consider putting them there myself but only if i can get mounts that can swivel so i can change the angle of it (i dont want it just facing to my passenger and vice versa).
