Passenger side ain't bad at all. My passenger side kick sounds awesome and has a lil' too much midbass than I want (tuned it down a bit)... and no rattles! Maybe reconsider?I'm going to be doing this, but I'm leaving the midbasses in the doors. Just can't justify the room the kick boxes take up.
Waiting for my base model a pillar trim to arrive ($26/each instead of $220/each for the golf r units).
I'm using them to add weight to dampen the vibration. I'll be adding change this time (thanks for mentioning that prior someone).What exactly are the BBs for?
Thanks for pointing that out. Because these will play midbass (80hz-250hz) I was concerned mostly about hitting the correct volumes in the kicks. My 2nd priority was having enough room. Since I have 6-speed, it was more of a challenge. My left foot will have to get used to the smaller space, but it's do-able. And because I don't necessarily need to point these as sub frequencies are omni directional, I was able to get away with having a woofer pointed directly at my foot. If I had tweeters up on the a-pillar, i'd be forced to point these woofers towards my face. So you see my dilemma. However, if I had more room up on the dash, I would opt for a 4" wideband instead.The longer the sound wave (lower frequency) the less directional it is.
Positioning is still important to avoid cancellation but they don't need to face you directly for you to get the full effect of them.
Much appreciated. Learning is the hardest part. Unfortunately, for me, I learned the worst way - trial and error. Luckily for us, we have YouTube to flatten the learning curve. I do hope you listen to a system that sounds good. To me, a great sounding system is just as enjoyable as feeling that turbo spool.Much respect for what's going on here. Lack of ability aside, I don't have the patience for this kind of work. I'll also make sure to never get in a car with this level of audio so that I'm not tempted to try it.
Man i hate fiberglassing. Those fibers were everywhere when i was done with a spare tire sub enclosure. I found that stuff for months in my garage and inside the house from tracking it in. Wife nearly stabbed me.
