    for the CDT tweeters I used a continuous ring of foam weatherstripping on the inside of the PVC cap to friction fit the tweeter. it holds it well and you don't see any mounting hardware.
    What do you mean they arnt tight enough, like where at?

    you can ask the members that used them and had to modify them. if you think about it - they are supposed to swivel easily for their normal use. the swivel ball isn't tight so the tweeter would sag down. you have to make the swivel much harder to turn.

    i thought about a setscrew - but drilling through that would require tools i don't posess currently.

    Sears sells them for like $10

    the threaded side would go into the pillar. the smooth end would get glued into the sphere/cap.

    i prever my method using threaded rod - it holds well and isn't bulky. you just have to get the angle right the first time!



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    i may try the thread rod for aesthetics, the best angle is out from the a pillars and pointed towards the driver correct?

    Re: Honda Civic SQ Build

    I aim mine at the rear c-pillars. So driver side is a bit off-axis to me, passenger is pointed at me. This helps with IID and HRTF. So you lose some level on the closer one... by design.

    Best to experiment with Velcro first, then finalize with an angle.

    i just cut the ring terminal down to do it, i will be doing it in the next couple of days so look for it, its a BIT3H to do and the ac lines run right in the way of the alternator so its a really tight squeeze and the alternator bolt and area is tiny, i will show all the pics once i do it.

    Forgot to post this, covered the rear side panels that had the huge holes, noticeable difference in noise, but not much for the effort, still worth it. covered with rammat on the inside and a mass loaded vinyl type sheet on the outside.
