Wanna get a basic idea of how big they are in relation to the car and space available underneath.

Possible ways of hiding/cleanly installing them

so on so forth

full size horns basically will take up a whole side of a car that was a 87 firebird the grills were adapted from a lower dash peice. you attach them with back straps or you can do a mold around the body then bolt the mold in (still need 2 back straps on the motor) if that car had the same system in it i would show you but it doesnt. that car finished 2nd place in usac and iasca world finals a long time ago.

They don't get in the way of the pedals?

I got a truck, so not much of a worry.

STILL pics would b nice, wtf people.

lol no they dont in 99% of the cases get in the way of anything and the angle you are asking for would be a tough one to get unless the dash is out of the car lol they only come down at most 3" from the bottom

899 i think they dont sound too much different as in night and day. i ran mine with good fabric over the mouth so they never got too harsh...they eq well too so its not like you will be missing too much either way. alot of the id guys run them uncovered.

I believe you mean, Neo ;)

And that price Audiolife posted I believe is just for the compression drivers themselves.

i sure do :)

i live in syracuse - like 5 hours from queens, we are hoping to have a meet in the springtime up here. so maybe you can come up then? by that time, my friend will have his CD1-Pros mini-bodies in, and ill have my CD2 Comp full-bodies setup with the crossover and all RTA'd. so you can hear two setups with horns :)

and heres a pic of my install.

i still gotta clean up the door a bit (still has some tape from the glassing on there) and get some grillcloth for the hornmouth, and a few tweaks here and there (including cleaning my carpet lol). but with the xover on (about 1.2khz) it sounds great.

here is another few pics of a horn install that was around here. not the greatest soundnig, he didnt have any dedicated midbass, just some components. but it got pretty loud and was real clean.

sorry squeak, i feel for ya :bawling:

but these horns are my babies. thank you VERY much for selling them to me dave, they are freaking amazing while i got to listen to them (however brief that was :( ) i hope for gods sake that my crossover comes back soon, im going to kill myself if i dont get it in before spring :mad:

they are trying to "locate a new one" and if they cant find one, they are going to "try to repair it"

well. hopefully somthing happens, i sent it out like 3 weeks ago. no horns until that baby comes back :(
