    Icon30 speaker flush mounting

    yo i have a 98 2dr cavi, i jus bout some 5 1/4" comps and ripped out the stock 4x6 and threw them in (as i knew prior to installing) the windows dont roll down all the way, they hit the magnet

    since its winter i dont really care right now, but wen it starts 2 heat up i was wondering how i go about flush mounting them, like do i just cut a hole in the door and mount them to the door with the grills?? or do i cut a hole make a mdf cutout and mount them to the cutout and the mdf cutout mount to the door? cause there pretty heavy and i dunt wanna rip the door apart by jus lettin them kick there lol

    Re: speaker flush mounting

    Basically you need a spacer. How much space do you need for the window to clear the magnet? You could go with the cutout of MDF and try to retain the speakers behind the doors. But you have to be careful not to let the speaker absorb to much air by creating a large gap. You will want to put some poly-fill around it so it sounds nice and tight. Have you thought about placing them in the kick panels?

    Re: speaker flush mounting

    so jus basically bring it out a lil bit more eh, so there still behind the panels...

    i thought about kick panels for 2seconds, then figured id prob end up ****ing them up one nite by gettin mud on em, or actually kicking them lol which is bound to happen

    you got a site i could look at about this? or any pictures..

    Sorry man, no site.

    Kick panels are actually quite strong. You would really have to kick the crap out of them to cause any damage. Also for imaging purposes I think it would be better in the kicks aimed up at the driver/passenger. But that's just me.
