Default ICE Install in Santro - Centre wooden rack for 6.5" compos ?

Iam soon getting 6.5" compo's for my Santro's front.

I have no intentions to cut sheet metal in the doors, so i was very intrigued by Smokin's touchscreen display install.

I am posting the pic's from Smokin's post. ---- Thanks Smokin.

I plan to install the 6.5" in the sides of the rack.
With Ref to the picture, the rack will be in line with the dash, so i get more space for the 6.5" compo's and am planning to cover it similar to speaker trays.
Now i need advice for the Guru's regarding where i can get this rack made.

I am a novice in ICE and don't know any good fabricator / installer who can help me in my unique request.

Guru's in Mumbai, Please advice.

UM

Are you considering installing 2 component sets facing away from each other? One facing your left knee and the other pointing away from you?

That would sound a bit weird. I would avoid this unique idea immediately, lol.

One facing the drivers side and one facing the passengers. the place of the touchscreen will be empty.

Please suggest a place to get this wooden rack made. experienced ice installers who made woofer cases will be able to do this. but i dont know any.. advice.

uniquemods, the point of having stereo speakers is to have them away from each other , and both firing at you so you get the entire space between them to reproduce the soundstage. Placing them together and firing away from each other would be very weird, unless your head was where the gear knob would be. Even then there would still be better options. Instead of sounding like a good stereo system, the music will sound like its coming from some two in one system ( remember those portable thingies?)

actually the santro stock location is quite good. a good 4" coax + some damping is all you need. if you want bass, get a sub
