Started getting the midbasses in this morning. It's gonna be cake to physically get them in the doors. Making the door panels fit is gonna be the fun part
Gotta go run some errands w/ the g/f in a bit, but then she's got a baby shower so I'll probably either get the baffles cut then, or do some more work on the horns. Deadening will probably start monday when I can actually yank my door completely apart for a few hours.
old speaker on the drivers side:
old and the new
if i sacraficed rolling down my windows, they'd fit perfectly behind the doors
Here's how much they stick out with the window down. Not too bad - might need a 3/4" spacer, or maybe two 5/8" ones.
just had to cut the tip of the corner off for more clearance. Busted out the hammer and dolly to roll the edge back around to stiffen it back up
I traced the metal adaptor plate my old speakers were mounted to onto some cardboard to make a template for my baffles. I added some extra to the top back edge. I figure mounting the midbasses to as much MDF as I can will help with vibrations.
Passengers door - don't you love mis-matched speakers, especially when one's a 1ohm speaker and the other's a 4ohms
talk about a piss-poor stage
all I had to cut from the doors:
