the other day at work i actually saw a new hyundai with tweeters mounted the way i said earlier. i could also see that the voice coils are pretty close to aligned, which is called time aligned, also described above somewhere, so thats another positive for mounting in that way.

This was from a pro installer who really knows his stuff.
Apparently in SQ system this helps the tweeters be equi-distant from your ears.

Kinda makes sense though, if you mount them on the doors the right one is only two feet max from your head the left one is miles away.

Something to do with setting up the sound stage better


If you mount the tweeters on the kick pannels, one is still going to be significantly further to you from the other! No doubt about that. And it'll be down low with things (such as poeples feet) blocking it off. I can't see that being a good place for tweeters at all.


Well it is. I know from experience that kick panel mounting is often the best choice for cars. The difference in distance ni kickpanel in a falcon is apprx 145cm and 120cm as opposed to the Dash where it is greater (as a percentage)

it is said that it is best to put all speakers in original positions as this is where the sound will be best

dont know how true it is but it somethin thati heard along the line somewhere


Not necessarily and certainly not in the case of the falcons. There are a number of locations that perform better. I found installing speaker sint he factory door location with mid and tweeter together worked quite well and kick panels also work very well if installed correctly.
