    creative idea...possible backfire...need some help

    Ok, so I had this great idea to get my comps to sound as good as possible (when i get them). What I did was used expandable foam between the outer door panel and the inner door panel to create a small sealed enclosure around the back of the speaker. Well I didn't think about the crossovers, and now i can't mount them inside the door. Would it be a bad idea to mount my crossovers back by my amps and then run 4 sets of speaker wires to each separate piece? Thanks for the help, any other ideas would be appreciated.

    Nope, many people choose to do it that way.

    No, I didn't go crazy with it, i just sprayed it about 2 inches outside of where the basket will be, there is about 6 inches between the foam and the window. Thanks for the help. One more question (i know its off thread topic, sorry) but can I run the speaker wires with the RCAs, or should i keep speaker/rcas/power all seperate? I know not to run anything with power wires, but RCA's with speaker? Thanks a lot.

    can you possibly get a picture of this foam idea?

    it should work, as long as the window aint gonna catch it.
