I stil get people asking if a roller is nessacary. I say yes, if you want a bubble free flat surface that will cure solid.

resined up the pods and clamped them down on the door panels. That way, when the resin cures, it will cure shapped to the door and not warped.

Cut and trim the back of it so you can mount the speakers inside.

And to answer the question I know that will come....... they will be IB in the door.
I have sealed these speakers up before and ran them IB and they sound so much better IB.

WTF push terminals on Dayton RS woofers? Are those the 4 ohm version or somethin, cause it's not like that on the 8 ohm (solder terminals).

I had some people asking how there were going to be attached to the panels.
I was going to use a few speed clips to hold it tight, but it wasn't needed.


There are currently 5 screws on each panel. And when he gets here tonight, I will show him what I suggest to do towards the front of the panel. There is nothing on the factory door panel to attach to. So a silicone adheisive will have to be used.


Anyways..... 2 screws behind the insert and 3 on the back of the panel........

Well he picked them up tonight. He posted a pic of them installed on his doors on another forum, fiberglassforums.
If he doesn't post them here, I will bring them over.

He got them home and threw them on his car for a quick pic.
Keep in mind, they still need to be wrapped in suede. And he will send me daytime pics soon.
