    tweeter location in grand am?

    i never put components in this car so im wondering were would be the best place to put the tweeter. i was thinking of putting them in the factory tweeter location on the a pillar or cutting in the door and putting them closeer to the mid. which way would be better. and if it helps, i plan on running image dynamics ctx65cs.

    Yup, I've done plenty of installs on grand ams, and have two of my own. So trust me when I sy this, do it right, and put it next to the mids (cut a hole in the door) if you don't wanna glass some kicks

    We use a hole saw at the shop, alot easier to get a perfect result. Only like $5 at ace/lowes/hd if you don't have one the right size.
