So I ordered a set of components that have a 1/2" tweeter and does not have a surface mount option (only flush)
I have an old beater car with the auto seatbelts so cannot flush mount int the pillars and I'm really not
skilled enough to make a pod

should. I
a: mount in the dash
b: mount on the door
or c: your option

Why not do an A-pillar mount?? I think those look really clean! & you can have them level with your ears. :-)

Will be more work, but you should velcro the tweets in different locations and find where you like them most

A pillar the front pillar that holds the windshield the one in the picture. The velcro is a great idea, you would be surprised how different each location sounds.

i am familiar with where the a pillar is but behind the a pillar is where the motor for the automatic seatbelts is located
that was my orgional plan until i made this discovery
i will try the velcro in a few diff spots and suggestion on where i could try?

not sure if this will help at all but the first pic i put up you couldnt see the auto seatbelt i was talkin about

also the plastic trim from the a pillar is all one piece from the a-c pillars and would be a bear to get off even if the motor wasnt right behind where id like to mount the tweeter

what would ya think about mounting it in the door right below the defrost vent for the window? would the heat effect the tweeter?

Top of your door panel, Sail panels, back in the dash, etc. tons of different places.

I believe it's that little triangle piece on the bottom corner of the window.

Do a tweeter pod in the sail panel. Will allow you to aim and you dont need much depth on the threaded rod to mount with a nut.
