Ok now once I have built the pods how do i attach them to the doors? The stupid map pocket indent thing in my EA will make it difficult to attach them securely. Any ideas? I can screw through the trim into the door but the indent will make it uneven right? Also is there any point making the pods angled? It wouldnt be difficult to mount them flush with the door. Obviously angled will sound better but will it make that much difference?
The whole point of pods is bigger speakers in the doors, and also angle makes a difference, you want all the signal to arrive at a central point (i.e. drivers ears) and not the floor or centre console.
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
I am building pods to fit some 6" pioneers. Id put em in the doors but thay wont fit! I can attach them (hehe thanks to some tin snips) but when i try put the door trim back on the trim touchs the speaker and it wont fit on properly. ideally Id love to put them in the factory locations but they wont fit (were talkin an EA here stupid factory 4" holes) Unless anyone can give me a better suggestion i will make some pods. But it would be fantastic if I could fit the speakers into the factory location. Cheers
Yeah i also had it on some 6 mil mdf so maybe that was the problem. Whatever the case the grill built into the trim touched the tweeter in the centre of the speaker. Depth wasnt the problem there was enough space
i cant help with you door pods cause i still havent done mine but i made surround sound in my car by mounting 2 speakers on the roof in the back and i used custom pods for that all i used was a bolt with a large washer inside the roof ive had them in there for 2 weeks and my roof still doesnt seem to sag so i guess i did it ok
and way ggod luck with the mounting of the door pods please tell me how you did it later so i know when i get to it on my ea

Another way you can mount the door pods is too countersink some long thing bolts threw the front of the door pods and bog over the top of them so they dont spin when you tighten the nuts up. To get the holes lined up just put the pod over the door skin all lined up and drill through both at the same time so it all lines up.
