ya it is vulnerable when mounted on the surface but one can cover then with some balloon to protect them while the car goes for service.

the better way is to tighten them with screw as the double table loses its grip in the vibrations in the car and the hot environment . but a spacer of sponge must be used so that the tweeter body does not vibrate with the dash.

Most curious. Are you telling me you cover your tweeters with condoms (I assume that's what you mean) before you send the car for service?

While very innovative and functional, it would look extremely funny.

Me too wondering what kind of balloons are expected here? Polythene sheet with bubbles, one that is used for packing?

I guess screws is the best bet as they dont leave too much of a mark when you sell the car you can just cover up the screw holes with m-seal or something.

Whereas regarding protection for the tweeter this came to mind after reading L_B_M's post:
I can just picture it L_B_M giving his car for service. the service engineer wants to take it away to the service bay. but alas at the last moment he realises that his tweeters aren't protected. runs after the car shouting ruk jao ruk jao tweeter par condom lagaana hai. the service guy stunned stops the car L_B_M then removes a packet of condoms from his pocket and neatly puts it on the tweeters and tells the service guy tweeter ko protect karna padta hai. seeing L_B_M put condoms on the tweeters the service guy faints. lol!!!

Sorry L_B_M no offence meant hope you dont mind.

The difference, Der Alte, is that these guys are young - they do NOT qualify. it is we who are OLD and hence qualify for such title. They call me Crazy Old Man.

BTW just so that you feel better Dirty Old Man can be acronymed to "DOM". Happy?

Hmm yes I want to write condom but I thought balloon will be a good decent word for it...a normal balloon cannot stretch much but the condom can also cover my 3inch dome midrange driver without any problem...

but guys seriously is that a nice idea....it can also work as a scent also...like banana, vanilla flavor.

[quote=vid6639;486218]seeing L_B_M put condoms on the tweeters the service guy faints. lol!!! quote]

and LBM says "Better safe than sorry"! It reminds me of a joke:

What is the similarity between a pregnant woman and a burnt toast?

kaash, ek minute pehle nikaal liya hota!!

Not without reason sir, not without reason

And yes you're partly right, Sam & Vid don't have kids while LBM's daughter is very young yet!

Ahem, I was talking about kids and real balloons, which obviously @LBM wasn't.

And, with the guys going on and on about condoms, flavours and "my 3inch dome midrange driver", I think I should retire to the hills - "man changa to kathauti mein Ganga"!!!
