I'll finally be doing some stereo work to the new truck, and i need guidance on A-pillars and tweeters.

Firing direction.

The only reason im moving the tweets up to the pillars is because i HATE how someones leg blocks their sound so bad. I just dont want to move them up and have the imaging be all f*cked up.

If i point them straight out of the pillar (the same direction as if they were in the door), would i gain similar imaging from them?

Which one is ideal will really depend on the person, car, and driver. Are you using a radiator tweeter or dome tweet, are you doing 3 or 4 way, are your midranges and/or midwoofers on or off axis; it just depends on a lot of different variables. If you can, try using tape to test the tweet in different placements and see which type you prefer most.

aim them at the rear view mirror this will bring the sound stage up and probable make them seem louder
