Acura Integra - Install Tweeters in Factory Location

Recommended Posts

Do you own an Integra that didn't come with stock tweeters? That's okay! The only thing Acura didn't do was cut a small hole in the door. That is all. There are wires in the door for a tweeter, as well as a cutout where the tweeter would've gone.

 

Step 1: Tools

All I used was a sharpie and my WEN rotary tool (very inexpensive on Amazon) with a drill bit and then switched to a grinding stone bit.

Step 2: Adios!

Say goodbye to your old tweeterless door panel

Step 3: Measure Tweeter

If your tweeters didn't come with a template, measure them.

Step 4: Drawing lines

There's a small hole directly in the center of the cutout, this is where I centered the lines.

TIP: Draw a circle around the lines! I didn't think of it at the time but it would've helped a lot.

Step 5: Committed to the hole

Using the drill bit, drill a hole through the panel and create a big enough hole to be able to use the stone bit. Go to town with the stone bit, carving away ONLY the plastic (Not the fabric), checking to see if the tweeter will fit every 30 seconds or so, don't stay in one place too long or your circle will quickly become oddly shaped. I didn't carve away the fabric in order to fold it back, giving the tweeter a tight fit.

Step 6: Poke it in

After a few minutes perfecting your circle, it should finally be just the right size to accommodate your tweeter. (Repeat steps 1 through 6 for other door :graduate: )

Mission Success!

In less than 30 minutes you can turn your lame-o non-tweeter door panel into a less-lame door panel, woot!

For my build, I did not use the factory tweeter wires. I have speaker wire routed through the door grommets (NOT FUN) and into crossovers epoxied on the back of the door panel. Running off an NVX mvp4.

      Hey all, I'm looking to get some quality 6.5's for my TL, right now my stock speakers are component 6.5 in the front with a 3" center speaker and a stock 8" sub in the back. The sub rattles and the 3" speaker i'm not sure makes much of a difference
       
      That being said, I'm looking to get 4 6.5" speakers, 2 component for the front and coax for the back, looking for something nice under $400-500 preferably for all 4.
       
      Since I am a bit new to this, I was wondering if anyone might have some input on what to get, right now i'm currently thinking about going with Memphis
       
      The amp i'm looking to go with is my old Kenwood KAC-8402
       
      I also just found my old Infinity Kappa's in the basement
       
      Any help would be awesome!

      Title states it all. Looking for one that fits in the sides.
       
      Looking to purchase one that is used or at a good price. I'm located in Maryland, local is the best route but I'm down to pay for shipping depending on price. Will have this listing up for probably a month, until I decide to make my own.
       
      PM or reply to thread or e-mail me at eldefontes@gmail.com

      Alright, there has been a lot of discussion and I want your opinion!
       
      For an Integra, which is the best box for an all out SPL build? (and gets low)
       

      Wall behind the driver/passenger seats
      Sub up, port back
      Sub up, port front
