Mount them pretty much wherever you want. I'd mount them in a sturdy, secure place where they're not going to flop around.

I mounted mine inside the door behind the speaker. I get no water leakage back there so it was the easiest place.

I vote for back by the amp, it will force you to use new wires and allow you to upgrade to an active stage later on without rewiring.

I plan to mount mine by making a fiberglass "pocket" in an access hole in the door. When you treat your doors (as you should) you will want to seal all access holes. Mine is large enoungh that I simply make a recess out of fiberglass, where I can mount the crossover. Also, I only need to thread one pair of wires through the door boot. This, of course, is assuming you don't have a crossover the size of a shoebox! The new Boston Acoustics SPZ comps have a crossover measuring 4.5"W x 8"L x 2.25"D!! Might make mounting the crossover a little more interesting...

I believe MB Quart 216's have a very large crossover, too. I guess you will have to see what factory gave you for room in your door.

Is visibly mounting the crossover not cool?

I think it looks cool back in the amp area like the other forum member posted

Mine are mounted in my doorpods showing them. My friend fiberglassed them into the pod. As long as they are secure I don't think it matters. I wanted mine showing because they looked clean and simple.
