Fantastic! Err... where are the red circles?

If you get a chance to open the door pad again, put some white petroleum jelly (Vaseline) on the XO terminals. Mounted inside the door, they are 'out of sight, out of mind' - and soon the elements (the XOs are partially exposed there) will make the terminals corrode. Also, make a hood over the XOs with a plastic sheet, so that drips (rain, car wash) don't affect the XO components!

Well I believe the red circle was a bit too faint

Points noted:

1. Apply petroleum jelly on xo terminals.
2. /cover xo s with a plastic sheet.

I was thinking about putting in foam speaker baffles -but a few of the reviews I read states that they cut down on the low end if I do not have a sub (which is my case). Any thoughts?

I opened up the door panels today and did the necessary patch job
Now the XOs were only held in place by 2 screws and they were rattling, so bought them down and fitted them on the outer shell of the door directly behind the speakers with 3M mounting tape. Then covered the terminals with vaseline petroleum jelly, and improvised a clear cover with ziplock bags - held at both ends by duck tape. Hope this works!

Looks good. I don't think the baffles will in any way reduce the mid-bass.
