Another Door pods question

Just about to start building some door pods. Ill be using this tutorial as my guide:

http://www.caraudioaustralia.com/tut...20-%20Beginner's%20Guide&num=1335925&NewTuteAuthor=Vince%20Galati&NewTuteCategory=Fabrication%20/%20Installation

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?

Cheers

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.

Oh and yes you just screw them in from behind the door trim so they are attached to the door trim, that way nice and clean and no screws showing, make the pod to hide the map pocket.

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

Any ideas

I have 5" splits in the front of my EA its a ghia and trim fitted no probs and managed to keep the plastic backing for the weather protection as well.

Whats the overall depth of the speaker that it has to sit so far forward (i am guess to clear the window) that the trim wont fit on properly.

There is a fair bit of clearance behind the trim.

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

remove the MDF and just use a bit of rubber for insulations if you are concerned, trim should fit then

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.
