This is for a Tahoe. I pretty much know how to fabricate the pillar. I want to add a 4-5.25" speaker and some tweeters in each. How do I mount it tightly because I don't think the factory clips are strong enough to hold it in place?:confused:

bolts won't work on the A pillars the factory clips will be strong enough if you keep the weight down and the clips are not dammaged

also just mold in two or three places along the rear edge (towards door ) for mounting screws just keep them close so the weather stripping will cover them

Good lawd man how tall are your pillars ? 4- 5 1/4"'s will be roughly 24" by themselves stacked on top of each other. Better fab in some bolts for those monsters.THey gonna be some heavy sob's :)

Still a little in the dark on the pillars, but I'll figure something out. I have a few ideas, but still will try the factory clips first.
