I would like to know where people put their cross-overs too.

I am putting my tweeters in the factory holes on the dash from the Premium Alpine system.

I put a crossover hidden in the glovebox with the wires coming from behind the glovebox and in from the back. And the other was above the accelerater on the lickpanel where you couldn't see it and it was out of the way. I bought velcro pads and stuck one side to the back of the crossver and the other side to the kick panel.

The A piller isnt't hollow and is not deep enough to flush mount tweeters but you could put them on just not flush mounted.

I've got my tweeters mounted on the a-pillars. Unfortunately, there is only about 10mm-ish gap between the plastic and the metal, so you can't really flush mount them. I just made a little metal bracket which I painted black and attached to the pillar and the tweeter, holding the tweeter at the desired angle...

I used to mount the crossovers right up under the dash, using cable ties. Now, I've got some new speakers, which have inline crossovers, so it's not a problem anymore.

Here's a pic of a tweeter:

try putting them in one of the outer dash vents on each side! Make the whole thing look factory and then blow them away with the soound when you crank it up!
