Thanks man. The piece you're referring to is the cover for my amp rack. All it is, is a sheet of 1/4" thick foam board! To get the letters resessed I first had to use a utility knife to cut each letter out! That took forever! Once the letters were cut I applied the felt. I waited for the spray glue to dry then I took the cap from a sharpie and worked the felt into the letter basically stretching it and wearing out a little as well. I repeated that process 5-6 times until I was happy with. Really easy to do, just takes a while.

Thanks. I love the components. Clean, crisp mids and hi and a really punchy mid bass as well. Rounds out the system perfectly.

How much power are you giving them? I've been eyeing these Alpines for a while. I can get a really good deal locally.

Get them! The RMS rating on them is 115. I'm giving them about 100 and they sound amazing. You will not be disappointed with them. I had the JL Audio Evolution 5 components. They retail for $650! I had them installed first and when I took the car apart for sound proofing, they were stolen by an ex-friend. I found the Type-R's at a local shop and paid $150 for them! They sound just as good and can handle more power! These things use to retail for about $400 but since they are discontinued, you can get them for next to nothing!
