this was just consider today evening they are doing in the door panel above the midbass here is a pic of the same.....

B&T I did not debate the reduction of vibrations I just debated why. For me this site is a learning experience and hence I want to know not only why vibrations reduced but also exactly why. I know my knowledge is limited and hence defer to gurus like JB, Sam and you.

LBM If I was going to rework the door panel I'd consider installing it near the door handle that would really put it at ear level.

Ok Gunbir and more. there are so many gurus and they make me a Mod. The world is not fair! But I love it!

LBM, you see that "line" where the door lock mould meets the door panel...now make a cavity from that point to the door panel meets the dash. it will angle the mids a bit forwards as well.

Well, I've hope I'm never considered a Guru... somehow that label sounds limiting... I come here to learn as much as I come here to share what little I know. Though one thing is true, I dont believe pretty much anything I read. Most of what I know was learnt the hard way... hands-on experience... So sometimes its hard to convince me otherwise.

While Navinji, JB and B&T can definitely teach me a thing or two about audio, it is Guru Sam to whom, beyond audio, I would turn to... for unlawful carnal knowledge... Now thats the kind of Guru thats truly indespensible...

I agree with Navinji on the door location... I think that would work well. However, if you went active, you could also do well with the kick position, just angle them a bit.

LBM your present position does not seem too bad. TO use the position i was suggesting you would need a new door panel (moulded out of fiberglass and re-decorated with fabric.

Agreed. LBM I think you can do with the position you have chosen. Just ensure that with a passenger, the passenger's knees dont block the midrange. A little bit cant be helped, but see that it is not blocked completely. But since you did mention, most of the time you drive this car alone, it shouldnt be much of an issue.

Or if you like carpentry you can make yourself a spacer shaped to fit that gap and you are home free... IN case this is do-able you will be better off angling it up towards you - in other words let the top portion be flush and the gap be at teh bottom... must have confused you!!
