    I have mine mounted in the A pillars and in the wife's van they're in the dash.

    They're only 1 1/2" deep, so not that hard to mount actually. Single one in the A pillar isn't that bad, but you need to go around 3 3/4" wide.

    You just have to build out some off the A pillar. Make a baffle ring and hot glue it in place with spacers, wrap it, FG, sand it smooth, cover...done

    They work fine there also, have pretty wide dispersion. Just need to make sure a leg isn't totally blocking them...

    Too much power makes them harsh, otherwise it's not a problem. I have them reflecting off front windshield and they sound very good, not harsh at all. Probably getting about 20watts each if that...

    But if you have ~20 watts going to them why not just use HU power? Just curious
