Hey,thanks for the pic B737. Are those 5 1/4" speakers or 6 1/2"? Looks like you utilized the space left over between the 6x8 hole and the smaller 5 1/4(?).That's a new option. What kind of components are those? and what size?
I found a space thats plenty big enough inside the door to put the crossovers.that doesn't interfere with the window.

good eye
they are indeed 5 1/4s
Rainbow SLC 230 components, they sound fantastic. very full, accurate and balanced.
the crossovers are at the bottom corner of the door near the 'vent' thats towards the rear of the door.

Rainbow, now there is a brand that nobody ever mentions on here. I like your style.

try to wrap the crossover in a bag or something to keep any moisture and dust from getting to it.. just as a precaution.

If you have a PIoneer Head/Speaker Setup then you get a Component Speaker Setup in the Front.
Tweeter/5.5” Mid, 6x8 in the rear and they do not sound bad, at least they sound better than the single speaker I had. Matched with a full digital iPod Hookup you can hear a lot more of the highs.
Also, a lot of the Expo Sports have this setup, although I never found an amp.

I was going to and still may use Gauge Pods on the Pillars, to mount my Tweeters; only thing I have heard that the tweeters need to be a certain distance from the Mids and not too far; I need to check the manual and see what is suggested by Pioneer.

I really like that setup but,I read on the rainbow site that the tweeters are super shallow that explains how you got the door panel to fit over them.I would try that but I don't have a Rainbow dealer near me.I think they might be more money than I'm wanting to spend anyway.Thanks for the pic though.I'm gonna look for another brand that has shallow mount tweets.

Alum,
i hear ya man,
the US Rainbow distributor is a guy in NJ. wouldnt hurt to shoot him an email and see if he can go lower on the costs, this is the guy; his name is Don, his personal email is mypearltpi AT aol.com

the set is so balanced and full, i have the system faded about 95% to the front, the kenwoods i have in the rear are hardly doing anything, they really sound amazing.

that said, i bet you could face mount tweeters them on the A-Pillars or theres got to be another brand maybe cheaper that has shallow tweeters... OOOoorrrr you can buy a set you like, then modify the tweeter casing to go behind the door panel....
