yeah im an audio junkie i work at a car audio shop as an installer but have never had to put tweeters in a first gen except my last car but it wasnt a very good job, so i will be using components the sound of a coaxial just doesnt compare.

If you care about staging, the "A" pillars are the best location.

Unless you are running an MS-8 or, BitOne

But this is my view of the a pillar shoots strait to the other side of the car and I kinda want to avoid any stand outish look

Head to the junkyard and salvage some A-Pillars. Mod them up to fit the look you want and install.

This is an old picture but here is how I mounted mine, I used ones from a pick and pull so I didn't destroy my good ones, I had it rapped in sub carpet because I was to lazy to sand and paint the enclosure, I've since made it better but I don't have a picture of it and my car isn't with me right now.

anyway I used some fiber glass to smooth the tweeter, it actually decent now... But I think it's a great location and if they swivel like mine then you can adjust the angle after install...



I got the idea from another car... I think it might actually be were they are placed on the mk3? I don't recall, but I think that's were I stole it from...
