Hello, im new here but have done research over the last couple of weeks so I"m not totally clueless. I am atempting my first front stage setup in a 1979 nova 2-door. Any help is much appreciated :)

Headunit- Bought a panasonic cq-c7203u
Amp- Bought a alpine pdx-100.4 (actual 130rms)
Mids- I was thinking CDT ES-6 in kick panels with sound deadening
Highs- Bought some CDT ES-010 tweeters

Running both on active off the amp

Should the tweeters be placed in kick panels on axis with the mids or would they sound better up on the dash by the pillars?

impo in the pillar or dash. closer to your ear.

Alright, I also just found out there is a factory 4x6 speaker in the center of the dash pointed straight towards the front mirror. I've read its easy to build brackets to fit dual 4" speakers. Would it be worth the trouble to put a full/midrange in those spots or would the reflection cause horrible imaging?
