I spy a barrier strip. Great for flipping polarity/phase of each speaker if your HU/Dsp can't.

I'd stick with a single set of tweets up front..

You should've mounted the mids right next to each other to where the flat(truncated) sides are side by side. Also, try to couple the door panel to the door with some bolts, so they not just held up by flimsy plastic clips. :)

No he has a 02 camry he made the doors for his car but ended up selling them to me and modifing them to fit my mids. My car is a 03 look exact same but for some reason dont fit. Me and donpisto tried all day friday i had to slam my door to get it to close and that was still leaving a 1/4 gap from the panel not fiting right.

Well thought id get some work done today. Got passenger door on (another headache) As a gap as well but im going to buy new clips and hopefully that fixes the problem. The door gap on driver side kinda went away haha. But i guess im happy with them. Got my mids in got everything wired up. **** sounds nice still need fine tuning. Also got my baffles made for my tweets for a-pillars and got them angled how I want them. Just used some glue for now but I plan to add some sticks or w/e to re-inforce them before i glass them, I was just to lazy to go to home depot or anywhere to get some. I will probably be only running the tweets in the a-pillars and just leave the ones in the doors to cover the holes LOL. If i feel its not loud enough ill hook them up but just those tweets playing rightnow its loud and these mids are ****ing badasssss!!!.. I also still plan to clean up the wiring a bit for the 2/4 channel amps but i was just happy to get some music back in my ride.. anyways onto pics and little video..

hard to beat those mids. I knew you would be happy with them.

James Bang
03-20-2010, 11:04 PM
Which PDX amps are those? If you can, I would suggest that you bridge the mids. That way each side can have it's own level adjustment. The levels for the tweets can be adjusted by the balance on the HU.

Maybe I will bridge the mids. Amps are a PDX 2.150 and 4.150 and ya thanks for suggestion on mids these are badasss

POwer-Fanatic the motors dont have a QCA on them. Only baskets doo. The 15"s have QCA as well but there inside the basket so you cant see them as you can see from my pics of the 15" baskets. But because the 12 baskets are so small the QCAs have to be how they are shown on my pics. The QCA is attached to the basket but have to be attached to the bottom.
