    Deaden doors or Make soley-MDF kick pods? Alpine Type-X 6.5's - Please help

    I can get a set of Type X 6.5 components for 185 so i figured i cant pass it up.

    I just dont know how i should install them in my truck.

    If simply mount them in my 6.5 door openings, how bad am i screwing up by not doing anything at all for deadending. Or since im too poor/lazy to do that right now would i be better off building some kick pods from 1/2 inch MDF. I wouldnt care if they were like square ish but i think i could build something that will fit OK with just MDF and a monster tube of liquid nails to fill the gaps.

    I remember when I didnt realize how much the enclosure mattered for subs, am I making the same mistake by trying to half-*** my "decent" components?

    And finally on the basis of sound, I know no one probably knows exactly what the X's like but will there be a major difference in sound between some small sealed pods or my doors?

    with small sealed pods you might hurt the lowend capability of those speakers.
    i think you would be better off putting them in the doors for now and deadening them when you get a chance.

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.
