i want to either use black paint or blck truck bed liner as it will tie into my inside.

as for speakers being used these are my 2nd set of Orion P6.2's the other set has been mounted in my door (woofer) and dash (tweeter)

i will have more pics up very soon of them in the car.....just got tired and the fumes were killing me.

does not match the interior

Where's the style? Nice fit though. They look like they eat up room on the passenger side, though. Who cares? We don't sit there anyway... Where are they aimed at?

If you don't have drunk piece of **** friends in your then it isn't a concern. And if they are in the car and kick it, you can always kick them to the curb. Quite simple really.

drink freinds in your ride are always a bad plan anyway, jusk put a warning up in you rcar that states "kick my speaks, i kick your face"

must get quite loud with 2 tweets and 2 6.5's

they are a bit too shiny IMO... i think a vynl wrap in that tan color would look way better.

good job however :D

next time aim them a little higher :thumbsup:

this is very true, drunk friends are a bad idea in your own car. alot can happen such as vomiting, very very muddy feet, oh and how could i forget broken heater vents. :smash:

I have the same concern as the rest of the guys about ppl actually kicking them. good idea on the truck bed liner, if it was applied properly, and a well known brand, it will never crack, or peel or anything. The only thing I would be worried about is someone actually kicking the drivers, or getting water or mud inside of them. If there is some kind of cover you can put over top to waterproof and footproof them it would work nice. Just some suggestions. Other than that good job.

Well you did a good job on them, but they are way tooo big! Was this your first time making them? I know I had the same problems on my first set. They were too big, angled wrong, and just really out of place. They definitely need to be tan like the wrest of the car.
