    Is this a good spot for speakers?

    Not in the actual door there is too much s*** in the door so it won't work like that. I was thinking in the little area in the red circle, will this work?

    Re: Is this a good spot for speakers?

    Hi, this is my first post but i do know (old schooler) that will not work. My suggestion would be to make door pods made of mdf and fiberglass and ditch the map pockets or, mount them in the kick panels.

    What won't work about it? It is pretty solid there.

    unless you were to seel it up around the top with fiberglass it would sound like *** so either way you would need to fiberglass something you might as well make door pods or do the kick panels

    They won't be firing into the seats, more in the area between your leg and the seats.

    Can I just close off the hole thing? Or do I actually have to redo it? I have had my speakers in the door panel of previous vehicles and it sounded ok to me, just in this vehicle there is no room to do that because it has power windows without building something for it. Is leaving it unsealed the same as having it in the door like my other vehicle? or will it sound worse?

    What happened to the stock speakers that were there. If there was stock then theres enough room for yours.

    If we were talking about a midbass driver in a 3 way system designed to fill in something like 50 or 60 to 150 HZ, and that whole thing is sealed off and basically turned into an enclosure, and the rest of the system is further in front of you and angled properly, maybe. If we're talking a midrange/midbass driver in a 2 way system or a coaxial, probably no good.

    There is no stock left, but it looks like the stock ones in the dash were replaced by 6x4, and I got 6" so that doesn't work out.

    So how bad are we talking about with putting these in the panel, I don't have the time and would really like to get these in(I am taking over my friends small pizza businessfor a good 2 weeks, while he is on vacation, so it is kinda hard to do this work with little time, and I am stuck with worn out speakers.
