Well i've never done a custom MDF bracket for door speakers so heres how I plan on going about it but please let me know if there's a better way.

Cutting a 3/4" MDF ring to sit the woofer in just as wide as where the screws go in, so 1/2".

Now I was going to try to make a square with four supports going to the sheet metal and fasten those in, with whatever is suggested, maybe some T-nuts.

Then I was wondering, since the supports are in a square should I make a box around the four sides, just leaving the speaker hole to the door open? not sure if it would improve mid bass seeing as how I already have damplifier pro on my doors.

Suggestions please!

Self taps 1", 1 1/8" and I wounding bother with a pod unless your gonna get technically and figure out what size the pod needs to be to work right. Other than that I would just suggest cutting the first plate a little bigger than nessecary and trim it down to what is needed cause you can cut wood down to fit but u can waste a piece if it is too small. And make sure the driver and passenger will be the same I've had a few cars where they have to be made a lil dif side to side

Well it was hard to get any useful info out of there with your proper grammar..

Does it matter the size/shape of the "pod" i figured its not really a box so it can't be causing any harmful effects on the sound.. other than maybe the fact that it might perform better free air?

Would putting my 6.5 ID woofers in a walled off bracket INSIDE my door hurt the sound? Not sealed, side with the hole open.
