Positioning of front Splits

I have just got myself a set of MB Quart 6.5in splits for the front of my EF GLi. i got the 6.5s in the doors ok (bloody JB guy said they were 6ers and i didnt check) after some filing and drilling... now, i have the tweeters to attach, i was wondering what other people have done with tweeters? have they put them on the dash?

i have a couple of ideas..
1. make brackets to mount them on the windscreen pillers.
2. use velcro and attach them to the dash matt.

comments, suggestions?

oh and anyone got any fantastic ideas on where to put the crossovers? big fat chunky things they are..

oh EFFalcon, with the wiring for those did you run that through the door rubber grommet thingy with the other wires? and or do you have the crossovers mounted in the door?

i was thinking of putting the crossovers in the centre console under the cup holders (i took the cup holders out and checked, there is heaps of room). the crossovers i have have 3 terminals, 0db, -3db and -6db. i was thinking that i could have a switch setup to select how loud the tweaters are.. havent played with splits before so i dunno how much the -3 and -6 will change them..

Have you thought about mounting the tweeters behind the air vents?

And I think they do make em for EF's, they are from Fairlanes/LTD's.

Key word - THINK, not 100%

They probably dont make them for the EF because there is spots in the dash right at the front for tweeters... but i'll check. ta for the tip.
