Here is where I was going to put my tweet, with my mid in the stock location right next to it. Somebody said I should mount it above the woofer instead, and somebody said I should mount in the A pillar. Is there anything wrong with mounting it where I circled, or should I go with the other suggestions? I would be able to aim and position the tweeter.

Other than it would probably sound like poopoo........


Make yourself a little tweeter bridge and mount it co-axially over the mid. Or, make yourself a little bracket out of some 1/8" metal stock from Home Depot and mount the tweets in the kickpanels. Heck, you could do it with a couple regular "L" brackets and a little muscles to bend them down to the angle you want......

A-pillar is IMHO a bad mounting position for the most part. As is where you want to locate them. You want them as far away from you as possible to equalize their path lenght differences. And, chances are you'll want them slightly off-axis from you.

Pick up some double sided tape and get to work. Place the tweeter in different locations and angles and find the best image.
