    double sided tape.

    if its those ct-2 tweeters, put them into the mounting kits and put one screw on just to hold it in place, you dont even have to run wire through the door yet... just test it out. See which way sounds best.

    its different with every car, dont shoot yourself in the foot by just relegating to that option without even testing the sail panel.

    Get double sided tape and test every location possible. This is an extremely important step that you cant fk up with IMHO.

    Don’t just try different spots. Try different axis. That’s more important.
    Pillars also have a lot of dash reflections. Lay towels on the dash.

    literally what made my tweeters sound crappy when I tried them on the A pillars. Nasty peaks left and right. I get zero with sail panels. His tweeter mounting kit has adjustable axis swivel.
