    Comps or midwoofers in sail panel

    Should I put component speakers or midwoofers w/out tweeters in the sail panel of my 2000 camaro?

    Are you talking about the little panel on the top of the doors by the side mirrors? That's the sail panel. You'd need an awfully small midwoofer to mount one there. I wouldn't place any speaker there as it's one of the closest positions to the ears, meaning your sound stage will be highly biased to the left and right sides.

    additionally, you don't have adequate airspace for midbass up there. 2"-4" full range drivers can work well down to 300Hz or so if the enclosure is properly made.

    pics would help.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Oh, I guess I'm not talking about sail panels, just the 6.5" in the rear seat about neck level

    Mid-woofers or at the very most coaxials... Not sure what location you're talking about but as said, the sails are in the corner of the front windows.

    Re: Comps or midwoofers in sail panel

    Actually the OP is correct.... The C-pillar is often called the Sail Panel. I see a lot of people on the internet incorrectly referring to the panel that covers your A-pillar, but if you know anything about 60-70's Domestic cars, you know its a sail panel.

    It is common to see mid-bass speakers mounted in this location or down in the door panel in the rear doors with no tweeter. Usually its LPF'd at around 500-2000hz (depending on install) to keep your front stage sounding far forward. If you run them full pass, it pulls your stage too far back and causes cancellations...

    MA Hippo 122 (awaiting install),(2) Aura Sound 8's, (2) SoundStream 6.5 coax, (2) Alpine Type-S 6x9's [rear fill], MBQ DSC1500.1D, RF 501X

    And many more car audio goodies in storage
