Just looking for ideas as to where to mount tweeters ?
I dont mind getting down and dirty with some bog / fibreglass.

A pillars, mirror covers, kick panels ?

what do people think ?

really just looking for opinions, and also some reasoning to back it up.

dang, I was lucky, my first set came with an angle bracket, all the sets since havn't (first set was Boss Audio, since then there's been two Alpines and a Clarion set and none of them matched the mounting hardware that came with my el cheepo Boss Audio!)!

You are better off getting the tweeters further away and more equidistnat (same distance from left and right side)

Because the sound waves are so small with tweeters even 2cm can majke a huge difference.

I would mount intot he A-Pillars especially if you have no problem working with a little fibreglass.

PS very nice Sail Pilar pods, well done...

Yeah they are pretty good. The passenger side tweeter is aimed at the drivers side and vice versa. Pretty good staging actually.

What about mounting the tweeters in the top corners of your front windscreen? You wouldn't even notice them.

or in the factory position under that cover so the sound is reflected off the glass back to you?
