Comp locations- doors vs doorpods.
I have two possible setups for my car that I am considering. I will be running SLC 265 Kicks or Focal Polyglass components most likely. One possibility is to mount the mids into the factory door location, and mount the tweets in the A pillar. My other consideration is to make a fiberglass door pod that would angle the mid upwards, with the tweet mounted right next to the mid. The mid would be sealed into the door with this setup as well. It'd be a bit like kicks mounted higher. I have time alignment on my head unit.
Which setup would sound better? Obviously, the A pillar option would be easier, but someone told me I would not be able to use TA with the mid and tweet separated, as I will be running passive. I COULD go active (I have an 880prs) if it would really be worth it, I've just never done it before.
I've never heard a car with kicks before. Is the difference really that much more audible having the tweet right next to the mid and having them angled upwards? I know high frequencies are "locatable," would I not be able to tell all my sound is coming from down below?
Thanks for any light someone can shed on this.
