Very happy to have it all done finally, and sounds a lot better than I was hoping for. What do you guys think?

The door panels are rather small, but the xover is rather big at the same time. Luckally, they do not stick out too far, I have yet to hit them with my legs. They will not stick out once I redo my door panels. When I'm all done, the door panels will be black, so they will blend in much better.

Looks pretty good, only thing I would say is those x-overs do seem out of place just on the doors like that, but otherwise there is really nothing that isn't nice and clean about your install. Trunk certainly looks very nice. Wiring is nice and clean too, Hyperflex sure is nice stuff ain't it.

Thanks for all the comments guys. It sounds great. I am going to try to hide the xovers somewhere.

Edit: I forgot to add, my doors are completely deadened and sealed.

You can hear it whenever you want Chris. Just need to find a time to do it. I still gotta hear your new system in the Teg.

how do you like those RS-series comps? I was thinking about getting a set. any particular likes/dislikes on them?

I really like them. My only main dislike about them is honestly just the size of the xover. Besides that, I have had nothing wrong with them. They love the 125 watts I have running to them, even may like a little more. They put out quite a bit of midbass, and the tweeter is really smooth. I'm completely satisfied.

It does get loud. I did lose a bit of low end because I put them in a relatively small box. I listen to rock and classic rock 90% of the time, so I was really looking for tight bass hits for the bass drum. They still get plenty loud and low when one of my friends wants a true test.

Looks good, but the x-overs stick out like a sore thumb.

Have fun with it.

I'd hide them somehwere. I am not a fan of mounting XOs on door panels at all.
