Stereo Positioning Help

I have a 01 SE sedan. i want to install tweeters, but have no clue where to mount them for that good sound. i was thinking in the dash, but how hard is it to take apart? Anyone out there that has done it?

Not a personal preference for my imagining but many have placed them there. Personally I like them reflecting off the windshield or moutting them facing the the drivers seat as close to the windshield as possible.

Personal preference. Use double sided tape and see where you like them.
