    New speakers... Help / the install please.

    I am installing a 5.25, and a tweeter on either side...

    The factory opening is meant for a 5.25" so that is no issue.. I'm just not sure exactly how to "deaden" it.. It is not in the door, and your CAN'T get behind the speaker VERY WELL.... in the sheet metal there is a cut out for a 5.25" speaker with holes for mounting, and a hole I can run wire up through... So I was wondering, what can I do back there? I think a ton of the sound gets lost in there... B/c it is a big hallow area, it's kinda hard to explain...

    So right now what I am going to do is, MDF ring that screws into stock holes. (non- hardening clay, which side of MDF ring do I put it on?) and screw the speaker to the ring...

    As for the tweeters... I'm not sure where they are going...

    I should probably get pics of everything to get suggestion on placement, and so you guys can relate to my description (which I am sure probably makes no sense what-so-ever...)

    Thanks.. Pics will come later tonight, or tomorrow morning..
