I wanted to see how I would create a set of door pods to fit in the front doors of my coupe, would like to fit a set of Rainbow Germs 465.25 :drool:

I have a picture that is similar to what I would like to do, and have no idea where to begin!

Yes. I was unsure how to start making that type of enclosure and the best method to secure it to the panel?

thanks

**** son, that is a NICE car.

if you want something like that, you either better be ready to make a couple mistakes or take your time and read the fiberglass how-to's on here.

I understand how you built your kick pods, but if you wanted to build them into the door pockets (like in your doors) how would one go about that?

thanks.

Those one aren't IN the doors, unless I'm not understanding you. Mounting depth from doing the pods that way, will eliminate many speakers from being a possiblity.

practice is key.... I had to do like 5 installs and buy ~500 worth of tools to get decent at fabrication... and I'm still not THAT good

I want the pods to fit into the door pockets in my front doors, like the photo.
I just am unclear how to modify the DIY kick-pods and make them fit the door pocket.
