Well after about 9 hours of dynamating, Dynaxorb, cleaning, and running new wires i have my new tweeters and door speakers in both my front doors. I dynamated the inner and outer skin.

Before.

Believe i used 4.5 sheets of dynamat with a heat gun and roller. Tomorrow maybe back doors and trunk / back seat... As of right now i just hooked these up to the head unit so i have sound while i am doing the rest because i am not sure if i will get to everything this weekend. But just hooked up to the head unit it sounds nice. Hopefully they will sound better when hooked up to the amp.

Questions? / Comments?

I only see one problem with it. Your putting kicker coax speakers + more tweeters. Are the speakers your using same as the ones in your sig?

Here is an updated.. worked about from 10am to 10pm.. hopefully will wrap up dynamat tomorrow.. I only have about 4 sheets left.. Guess i will have to get more for the rear doors

Tomorrow i will remove the front seats so i can run the RCA and 0guage power cable.
My goal for tomorrow is to install the 2 4 channel amps along with the near rear speakers and tweeters.

Here are the pics
