Default Components for Alto- Installation help required.

I need some pointers on installing component speakers in front for an Alto.
I opened up the door panel and there is very little space to shoehorn in a midbass in the front doors..

I tried searching and have found two interesting posts.
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/652603-post1086.html
and
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/sound-...e-install.html

Need more pointers on how to proceed.
Fibreglassing compulsory or MDF will work just as well?

Have seen it done with just MDF work on Speedzak's Alto.

Is this going to be a DIY?

Face it! It is quiet impossible to have decent speaker in the doors with the winder. But given the budget and effort, one can always achieve anything! Right?

I would suggest you to go for power windows atleast for front doors. It will make the installation neat and good.

ASAP?

Who's car by the way? Harpreet?

So crux of matter is either power windows or Fibreglassing.
No budget for power windows right now And I have no prior experience with fibreglassing. :-(
