Re: [DML] Adding front speakers



I've also created my own pods for 02650 that house 6-1/2 speakers.  I've seen the ones that one of the vendors sells and IN MY OPINION, they are ok, but WAY overpriced for what you get.  If you're handy and want to give try making them yourself, here's a link to the build-up of mine:

Just let me know if you have any questions,

Yes - I created some fiberglass pods & added 6.5" speakers (!) to that area. 
Also added a 10" sub to the locking compartment, and a 100% hidden amp 
behind the parcel shelf. I have pictures of some of the process here:

A few notes:

-This was the first time I'd worked with fiberglass. I think it worked out 
pretty well, actually, even if I did catch a few air bubbles between layers. 
I had to remake the sub box 3 times to get it right, tho :O

-I did the entire installation -- pods, sub, amp, tweeters -- and only 
drilled 4 holes in the car (to mount the amp). Even the pods themselves use 
the pre-existing studs for the kneepads. Looking back, I probably could 
have mounted the amp with a massive quantity of velcro, instead.

-This took a long time, especially while wearing a respirator in the summer 
heat!

While the pods do protrude into passenger space, it's not bad at all. The 
trunk release is still perfectly accessible, too. Passengers have had no 
complaints.
