    Tweeter wiring location (suggestions, pics included)

    Ok so I will be recieving my comps shortly and was wondering if anyone has an input on where to mount the tweets. This is the car its going in, 2006 ford focus. Now the tube which the wires runs between the doors and the rest of the car has the wire spliced into some wierd proprietary connection, and as far as i can see it would take some wiring that im not comfortable doing or some drilling which im trying to avoid. So within the door area would be best, so that leaves 2 spots without wiring outside the doors.


    Please give me some input if anyone has any, as I should be recieving these today or tomarrow at the latest. Also I heard many people say just do trial and error with things like this as, imaging and SQ is different between different cars and location etc...

    time to bust out the double sided tape/velcrow and test out those locations yourself. every install is different so there is no set way to go about locations.

    And be prepared to be driving around for a few days with tweeters taped to your doors, dash, pillars, etc. Not only do you want to try every possible location, you'll also want to try aiming them slightly differently from each possible location. AND try them in-phase, out-of-phase, attenuated, etc, etc.

    Have fun!

    it gets really fun if you have crossovers with numerous adjustments. An objective to shoot for is to have the woofer and tweeter pair the same distance away from your head. However the location you're suggestion won't have much bearing on this.

    Just guessing, i think you'll have the best luck with the top right section and if you have angled tweeter mounts it will help with imaging.



    the system:

    Alpine IVA D310 head unit
    Alpine PXA H701 processor
    Epicenter 150 subwoofer processor
    (2) Alpine MRP F250 amps
    (2) Alpine SPX 137r component speakers
    (2) Alpine SPX 177 mid bass kits
    (2) Alpine SPX 177r component speakers
    JL 500/1 amplifier
    JL 12w6v2 subwoofer
    SPL 3 farad digital capacitor
    Optima red top battery
    200 Amp custom built alternator
