My fingers are crossed I sent a sorta firm and pissed off email to him and he replied real quick cause I am at the point of just knocking his azz clean off his feet. Danny Hays "KustomKars" stay the hell away.. He does great work if ur willing to wait 6 months for ur speakers to get installed...

Good to here that your doors almost there. I've been itchin' to here more reviews/info on the silver flutes (in car doors).

I have a few questions: Are your pannels sealed or IB? What tweeter are you pairing with your flutes and are you running active/passive? I'm ready to start the same project in my Taurus as soon as I get tweets. Any info is much appreciated.
Thanks Matt

Semi sealed I mean they will be sealed as best as I can make them but to say they will be air tight naw I would just be lying to you.... I run 2 pairs of flutes per door with 2 pairs of Seas Prestige tweets per doors. This setup will be run active via my HU.. This is my 3rd and 4th pair of flutes in about 3 years.. So I guess that means I like them LOL.. I did not not blow the previous pairs I sold them to fellow members in times of money needs. Give each speaker a good 80-100 each from 80hz-3500 in some cases 4500hz and let them sing...

All my previous setups I used a single pair of flutes off some highend Hertz crossovers with DDT tweets and loved that setup just wanted more this go around. They molested my old DD mids in output and sound quality and build quality by far.

I remember at some time you were gonna see if Madisound could make you a custom crossover for your front stage, did you look into that anymore? I know I read somewhere you were gonna check on that, but can't remember where. I have been really anxious to see the rest of your build, so i am glad things are looking up Bro!

who me? I think i did say something about that on my last build but I was able to find some hertz mille mlk2 crossovers that were set to the freq and slopes I was after. Pics will be up Tuesday for sure might just be pics but I will try to get a vid assuming I can borrow one.

SEAS Prestige 27TAFNC/G (H1397) 1" Aluminum Dome Tweeter: Madisound Speaker Store (http://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/hard-dome-tweeter/seas-prestige-27tafnc/g-h1397-1-aluminum-dome-tweeter/)

They also make a silk dome version if thats ur thing...

I used these mounting cups. Just requires u to drill 3 holes in the back of the cup for them to fit - http://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/speaker-mounts/lpg-wedge-mount-hinged/

I'm not really up on fiberglassing doors, so correct me if I sound stupid asking this.

Are you going to be using the original doors as molds, or do something custom?

the first post of this thread.. But I do have some major issues.. Of course.. One of the rca inputs on the amp is messed up it cuts in and out when wiggled yes we tried a different set of rca's with same results. So I will be sending the sundown in for repair "good thing its still under warranty" but it will just delay me that much more.

Also, lets no forget I now have a turn off pop when i turn the HU off ohhh it never ends.

Is it just the pics or is there a gap between the black and the tan where it meets the pull under the window switch? Doesnt look like it follows the curve right. :(

No gap. I will try and get better pics where the 2 colors meet there is a tad bit of touch up that needs to be done. But the glassing is done well below that color line. The top black part was OG grey but has been wrapped in vinyl and he did a very good job.

Maybe thats what Im seeing. They look good overall. I just noticed that one spot looked like the lines were off or something. As long as you're happy with them! :)

Just alil masking and spraying will fix that. This is something I can do in 30mins but if I left with Danny it would be prob another 2 weeks LOL

When I do mine I definatly will copy the way yours are countersunk, it is 10x's cleaner looking than the surface mount type that a lot of people do. Also I am trying to find another pair of flutes so I can run 2 per door also(Madisound is out of stock till late March). It will make life easier than adding/glassing another pair in down the road and till I upgrade my midbass amp I can run the second set as a passive radiator. Again I'm Jealous.

Overall I am happy other then the amp issue. I mean its not a show car. Not as loud as I would like I am gonna mess with the eq alil while and see what can be done to get that where I want it.
