Ok, so I had this great idea to get my comps to sound as good as possible (when i get them). What I did was used expandable foam between the outer door panel and the inner door panel to create a small sealed enclosure around the back of the speaker. Well I didn't think about the crossovers, and now i can't mount them inside the door. Would it be a bad idea to mount my crossovers back by my amps and then run 4 sets of speaker wires to each separate piece? Thanks for the help, any other ideas would be appreciated.

Nope, many people choose to do it that way.

When you roll the window down its not gonna knock out all the foam is it? :p:

No, I didn't go crazy with it, i just sprayed it about 2 inches outside of where the basket will be, there is about 6 inches between the foam and the window. Thanks for the help. One more question (i know its off thread topic, sorry) but can I run the speaker wires with the RCAs, or should i keep speaker/rcas/power all seperate? I know not to run anything with power wires, but RCA's with speaker? Thanks a lot.

That'll work fine.

can you possibly get a picture of this foam idea?

it should work, as long as the window aint gonna catch it.
